Origin Emperor Allestrain I
Type Weapon

Sangria, Blessed Blade of the Glory-Seeker is the legendary longsword of the God Emperor Allest of Unionist Faith, renowned for its glory and use at the hands of a legendary combatant. Initially forged by his direction, Sangria saw only victory in the hands of Allest, until his demise. The blade was taken from Allest's corpse, and paraded as a trophy, until it was stolen for its value. The blade passed many hands before it reached the Regalian Archipelago again, brought to Vultaro by a staunch Unionist. From there, the blade was taken on a Pilgrimage to the Holy City. Sangria is a legendary artifact amongst Unionists, especially those who dedicate themselves to Allest, believing that the blade enacts his will in the modern day.

Lore

Sangria's origins are somewhat well-recorded, as its first appearance in history was in the hands of the God Emperor Allest, who was said to have it forged to unique and (at the time) strange specifications. During Allest's life, it was nearly synonymous with him, and predominantly found use in the subjugation of Nordskag by the God Emperor. After the God Emperor's death, the sword passed along many armies and collectors, some who wished to quickly discard of it as they found, in their hands, it did not live up to the legends of Allest's might. Sangria is a large longsword, the blade has been hammered to rippling, many-folded perfection and tempered so masterfully that its near-opalescent surface shines a distinctly violet color in some angles of light, and a menacing red in others. It was said that those Allest brandished it against would see red upon it if he intended to slay them, and see violet if he were to show them mercy, though this is entirely hearsay as the steel’s color is a purely mundane facet of its metalwork. The cross guard has been wrapped many times over with sacred linens typically reserved for wrapping Unionist dead before their cremation, still smelling faintly of funerary perfumes. Dead within its center is a golden eye, set with a silver pupil, connecting to the red leather-bound handle. From the pommel hangs a rosary composed of many beads carved from knuckle bones: each knuckle bone taken from a person the blade has cut down, severed from their hand with it, and having their name and a prayer for their soul etched into the polished bone.

Artifact Tenure

Sangria is a Tenured Artifact to the Aelrrigan Knight Eleanaire of Jophael ((Finlaggan)), who is its reluctant wielder, burdened by its history. It cannot be stolen from her, but anyone who KO's her can take the Artifactspark from it, even if they don't normally have a mechanic that would allow them to do this.

Artifact Mechanics

Sangria is a Unionist God Magic Artifact. There are rules associated with Artifact Ownership, see the Artifact Page. Artifacts also provide Mechanics.

Permanent Mechanics

  • Sangria is the legendary weapon of Emperor Allest. If the user is fighting against Fornoss Worshipers, Evolist worshipers, Fury Arkenborn and/or Pride Arkenborn they gain +2 to their Attack Stat (Breaks Cap up to 11).

Artifactspark Mechanics

  • Choose 2 Free Packs from the following Categories: Paladin Point Buy, Melee Point Buy, Training Point Buy.
  • Whenever the wielder contributes to KOing a Fornoss Worshipper, Evolist, or Fury/Pride Arkenborn in CRP (contributing means dealing at least 4HP of damage), the user immediately uses the Ability Divine Savior from Paladin Point Buy, without using an action, without needing to be in the stance and ignoring cooldowns, but only on themselves. It always counts as its Heretic Function.
  • Sangria grants the wielder access to Allest's Sanctuary, a pocket dimension castle in the City of Regalia (if new, or you want to move it, ask about it in a Ticket). They can also let others in (willingly), no-one else can break in without permission. While within the Sanctuary, they can suspend (not remove, just pause) the effects of any player-applied Curses, including Custom Kit Prized Curses. Curse effects immediately re-activate as soon as the individual exits the Sanctuary.

Legendary Artifactspark Mechanics

  • Choose 1 Free Pack from the following Category: Melee Point Buy
  • Sangria’s might crushes the enemies of Unionism. When attacking Afflicted (excluding Relicsworn Undead), Argentum Knights, and Mystech, the wielder’s Attacks deal -3HP instead of -2HP. Additionally, when the wielder would be KO’d, they can use the Ability Magic Revenge as its Sinistral version from Magic Point Buy (does not count as Sinistral Magic, and does not require Magic).
  • The Legendary Artifactspark Weapon grants the user +3 Attack Stat (breaks cap up to 11) and +1 Defense Stat (breaks cap up to 9), and sets the minimum for their Attack Dice Rolls to 5. When the user is KO’d, they can choose to instantly teleport them, and the Artifact, safely to their home. This can only be done once (and must be reported to Lore Staff). Subsequent uses of this teleport mechanic must sacrifice the Artifact’s Spark in order to teleport the user and the Artifact. The Artifact is considered de-sparked, and the Artifactspark is granted to whoever KO’d the user.
