In the days of the divisive war when Tribe fought against Tribe, weapons of great regret were created. Most have been lost to the sands, however, a class of weapon called a Vorpal has survived. A Vorpal Sword is a custom hilt that houses one or more cyber infected animus stones. These stones, when powered, create a microscopic tear in space/time. Sometimes referred to as a rift blade, the rip appears as a rod of pure energy emitting from the handle. The blades are unique each having its own group of characteristics. Some blades have powerful spirits contained in them. These Apoc-Vorpals are rare and usually kept in the protected archive deep inside the Cimbric Tower.
Vorpal Swords are generally passed from generation to generation. Many of these swords have been given names or titles that show their lineage or history. The Cimbric High Council has forbid any non-Teuton from using a blade in combat, however many Tigir, and Suebi families own them. It is not unusual for these houses to hire out Teutons to wield these blades to protect caravans or outposts.
