“You really shouldn’t be working during our designated breaks, Croc. Tatu says its ‘exploitation of labor’ or something.”

– Kenshi, who leaves all the “work stuff” to Tatu

Just as every weapon is imbued with a fraction of its crafter’s soul, so too, does a warrior impart a remnant of their soul into every weapon they wield. Skilled appraisers, trained with the “Identify Signature” spell, can read the magical aura that emanates from these soul remnants in order to authenticate claims of a weapon’s prestige. The greater the warrior, and the more frequently they used the weapon, the more prominent their signature would appear within its aura. Even with a single swing, no appraiser could ever miss Kenshi’s signature on a blade.
