Weapon History[]

Level 1

In a far-away Eastern land, there was a poet who made a living reciting songs.
But he keenly felt the limits of his own skills, and so he made a pact with a
ghost.

Level 2

With the power of the ghost inside him, he began to compose glorious and
beautiful songs. His fame spread through the city, and before long, he was
named the official Poet to the Imperial Court.

Level 3

But one day, the ghost returned to the him, and she said thus: "Your life as
a genius poet is over. You shall henceforth never sing a song again."

Level 4

It was as the ghost said. The poet fell silent and no more songs came from his
lips. His dream gone, he plunged this sword into his breast. It still gleams
with the glistering of his blood.

Level 1

In an eastern land, a poet, who
made his living singing songs, grew
weary of his trade, when he realized
he’d reached the limits of his talents.
While contemplating what else he
might do with his life, he saw a
beautiful sword in the window of a
pawnshop. Enchanted by its
crimson blade, he bought the sword
and took it home.

Level 2

That night he slept with the sword
by his side. As he began to dream,
an imp appeared and demanded a
trade. He said that if the poet
gave up his name, the imp would
gave him talent in return.

Level 3

The poet gave his name to the imp
without a second thought. In return,
he received a beautiful body and
an exquisite talent for songs
overnight.

Level 4

But without a name, the beautiful
poet lost more and more of his
humanity as the days went by.
One faithful morning, he awoke to
find that he'd been turned into an imp!

Fearing to be seen in the world
of men, he fled and was never
seen again. He left behind the
beautiful sword, now granted
a name.
