Siolan Weapons were originally released as scripted daggers sold by the merchant Siolan, who is run by GM Xayle. The script was updated by GMs Xayle and Haliste to support a wider range of weapons, including polearms, blunts, and larger edged weapons (both one-handed and two-handed). A shop selling a range of larger weapons bearing this script was released at Briarmoon Cove in February 2016.
