Sword Breaker (A02 84); 30 gc; Availability: Rare 8
The sword breaker is a specialist weapon wrought by only the most talented sword smiths. Next to the hilt are two prongs concealed within the blade that can be used to trap an opponent's blade, twisting and snapping it with a single, well time movement. Range: Close combat; Strength: As user; Special Rules:
● Parry: The sword breaker allows the wielder to parry the attacks of his opponent's in close combat. When your opponent scores a hit, roll a D6. If you can roll greater than the highest 'to hit' of your oppenent, you have parried the attack and the blow is wasted.
● Trap Blade: Whenever you make a successful parry attempt roll a D6. If you score a 4+, you break the weapon your opponent was using. The weapon is now useless and they must use another one, or if they have no other weapon, resort to unarmed combat.

I believe the name says it all: Breaks... Swords? Ah well, almost says it all! In our group I don't think we quite agree what happens to the weapon. It is rendered useless, but for how long? The rest of the battle or permanently? And can you sell this broken weapon for half the normal price? Somewhat left out of here. Hope you wise people in here can be of assistance!

Also... Master of Blades with this: lol!

We never use it, but to us a broken weapon is destroyed. It has no value and is removed from the warrior's equipment. I suspect that since there are no rules, you could house rule your own.

Yup, broken would be destroyed forever. Maybe make it slightly less harsh by making it worth half it's value as scrap metal (so sells for half of that halved value...meaning a sword would sell for 2 crowns, an axe for 1).

And yessssss to these with Master of Blades. I'm considering Dwarves soon, so that's a fun one to remember (at least, fun for me!)
