Long Description

This greatsword exudes an aura of lawlessness. Perhaps it's the incredible size that makes it hardly fit through doorways (against city regulations, surely) or the serrated edge designed to cleave through armour and tear flesh (no doubt banned by weapon treaties). It might be the way the blade is blackened for what semblance of stealth one can achieve with a massive greatsword (simply suspicious!), or the grinning skull on the pommel surrounded by a profusion of spikes (no sword that looks like that could be up to anything good). Regardless, it looks just like the kind of greatsword a thief would wield if thieves wielded greatswords.
