The Janissaries are part knight, part monk, and part sorcerer. With their unparalleled powers over the mind and blade alike it is no wonder that they would produce powerful and exotic weaponry best suited for their unique form of combat and philosophy. Perhaps one of the most bizarre weapons crafted by the Janissaries warriors was a red crystal blade forged from purest emotional anger and hate known as the Malice Blade.

Nice crystalline blade

***( )( )

This installment of the Treasures of NeoExodus-line is 4 pages long, 1 page SRD/editorial, 1/2 page of advertisement, leaving us with2.5 pages of content, so let's check out the Malice Blade!

Created by one of the legendary order of Janissaries to channel his pent-up fury and rage into a deadly weapon, this crystal falchion seems to be blood red - whihc is problematic, since it started off as looking like amethyst - the theory being that the blade siphons of the hatred and rage of its wielders, slowly turning more violent with each wielder. Rules-wise, the falchion is a +3 psychokinetic collision crystal falchion that enables its wielder to enter rages as per the spell - but makes it hard for the wielder to get out of the rages. While not going full-blown berserker, the wielder will have a hard time granting quarter.

One of the pages is devoted to weapon-cards of the item.

Conclusion:
Editing and formatting are ok - I noticed some punctuation errors and minor glitches that should not be present from such a small pdf. Layout adheres to the beautiful 2-column, full-color standard we know from NeoExodus publications. The original piece of artwork for the blade is awesome. The pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length. All in all, I like the idea and background story of this blade, but I feel it could have been more interesting in the mechanical area: Why not temporarily grant the wielder a rage power when under the effects from the blade's rage, for example? A unique ability like this would go a long way in making the blade stand out more. In the end, this in combination with the editing glitches, results in my final verdict of 3 stars - an ok, though not perfect offering.

Endzeitgeist out.
