As OlliN has yet to respond to my requests for information, here goes my sketch. Inspired by Albion's The Dane and Gallowglass and Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings sword of the Witchking.

I apologize in advance for the, er, sorry state of the scan, as the original was done in pencil and my scanner did not much like picking up the pencil marks. And so I kept increasing the contrast until I could clearly make out the sword itself... of course, it also got the funny dark spots, too.



I didn't realize until after I had scanned the picture that my gothic mace-inspired profile on the modified ring pommel bears a rather strong resemblance to the pommel on PJ's Narsil/Anduril. So that might change....

Thoughts? Questions? Strongly worded disparaging remarks? Wink

Well, the design could use some refinement, but as a concept I don't see anything wrong with it.

XIX is in interesting choice of blade type. Don't see a lot of those for fantasy swords. I like the pommel design; that's a variant I've never seen before.

The sword is an ode to the strife of mankind.
