Sword of Heroes
The goblins laughed at the young man before them, dressed in simple tunic and breeches with an old copper short sword in his hand.
With conviction the human stepped forward and shouted as he swung his blade. The heads of four goblins rolled off of their shoulder at once.
“Retreat!” called a goblin from the rear and the half a dozen goblins troubled the farm of the boy’s grandfather no more.
In ancient times the goddess of a small city blessed this simple looking copper short sword for a hapless hero who turned the tide of battle and saved the day. Only to fall into decadence over his triumph and later cause worse damage in time. Such things often happen in old tales. With the powers of the sword many would be heroes (and villains) are willing to take the risk of becoming debauched to wield the blade.
