General Magnus, during the long years of his career, brought forward the cause of the empire, but also its borders. Great strategist and formidable warrior, he led his troops with discipline and strength. However, the long days of the soldier were ending with his old age : his arm was slower, and even if his mind was as sharp as ever, he wasn't strong enough to go on another campaign.
As a mark of respect for the general, the Emperor made sure he would never be forgotten. When the soldier got back to his small village, ready to live out the rest of his days in peace, he gave his sword back to his ruler. As he had been of a great help to the realm, the Emperor got sure his sword got hung up high in the great hall of the castle. That way, generations of knights, soldiers and noblemen would remember him and his deeds to the empire.
This new model of the Magnus bastard sword still has every strong aspect of the former : its foam blade is perfectly safe while still being realistic. However, its colours have been greatly improved. The new blade is now steel-coloured and its handle is part ternished gold, part brown and part steel to give it a unique look.Â
Every warrior character can find the Magnus III to be of great use, be they knights or fierce barbarians. The first will appreciate the weapon's prestige while the latter will prefer its simple efficiency. Simple enough for a wandering warrior, but prestigious enough for noblemen, this bastard sword will please every one of its wearers.
