a black ora longsword

The black ora longsword is shrouded in swirling shadows from top to bottom and no amount of light seems to be able to penetrate the gloom.
  • weighs 5 pounds
  • 80/190
  • seems to be ora enchant.
  • Weapon is permacursed, and gets stuck in your hand until uncursed or a pure potion is used poured on it.

The little bit I've played with it reveal a very interesting myriad of different types of flares, as well as flaring almost every single other swing.

a black ora maul

The black ora maul is shrouded in swirling shadows from top to bottom and no amount of light seems to be able to penetrate the gloom.
  • 4x
  • 9lbs
  • 85/210
  • permanent bonus to mana regeneration while held in hand.
  • permanently cursed. when put in hand, you have a few seconds to move it around, stow it, etc, until the curse takes effect, at which point you need a pure potion poured on it, or remove curse (or neutralize curse, i forget which) cast at you by a cleric (or scroll, magic item, etc).

There are tons of ambient scripts to this weapon, just by having it in your hand, all completely random. On occasion, it may lash back and hurt you, I've heard other people say their black ora did, but I've yet to have that happen.

Several different types of flares on this, including one that seems to use the disruption critical table.
