Classification: Gladius style Sith Sword
 
Size: One Handed
 
Length: Blade is 68 cm long, total length is 85 cm.
 
Weight: 2 kg (added weight due to transmutation)
 
Special Features:
 
-The Rudis of the Dark Lord contains the following properties, similar to any Sith Sword:
--In the hands of an experienced darksider, the Sword can withstand strikes from a lightsaber.
--Reflective surface allows for deflection of projectiles similar to a lightsaber.
--Sharpness and strength can be altered with the implementation of the Dark Side, as well as polarity and conductivity.
--The Rudis can serve as a conduit for the darkside, allowing the user to focus and harness their powers at a greater degree than normal.
--The Rudis can collect and re-direct force lightning/emerald judgment.
 
-The Rudis automatically engraves, onto the blade, the attributes or name of any individual slain by the Assassin that is bound to said Rudis.
 
Description: The Dark Lord of the Sith, with the guidance of the Wrath, commissioned the construction of Sith Swords to mark certain Sith Assassins for exemplary work in whatever field they practice.  Be it war, subterfuge, or assassinations, any Sith Assassin, from this point onward, is presented a Rudis of the Dark Lord at the point of ascension to Sith Lord.
 
The Rudis is an archaic construction of Sith Sword, far shorter than the more typical constructions, close to half the common length.  Alchemized and transmuted through assistance by Sage Bane and Darth Carach, the sword holds all the similar properties of historical Sith Swords.  This includes the ability to perform in combat as a lightsaber, manipulation of hardness/sharpness through the force, the ability to increase the focus of the darkside within the wielder, and the ability to re-direct lightning.  However, it has the additional property of engraving.  As an assassin kills a mark or enemy, the Rudis pulls information from the assassin in order to discern descriptive properties of the slain.  Once either attributes or name is obtained, the Rudis is automatically engraved in Sith Runes with the accounting of the kill.  The sword holds a permanent black coated blade, the Sith Runes form in the color of vibrant molten red.  It can even be said that the redder the Rudis, the more accomplished the Sith Assassin is.
 
At the moment of being given to the newly anointed Sith Lord, the Rudis binds with the wielder permanently.  Transferring the item to another user does not provide any form of mental linking, thus voiding the properties of etching until the item is returned to it's original user.  In order for the etching to work, the Rudis must be equipped or held by the Assassin at the time of the kill.  The engraving are permanent and cannot be altered with Sith Alchemy or modifying of Rudis molecular structure.
 
The Rudis is offered in a dark tanned leather sheath, capable of being worn on either the back or the hip.  This can be modified as the user sees fit.

rare ores

 

This is a little to vague please specify the ore used.

Can you expand on how you did this and how it works. Can you find a canon explanation for this?

Same for this how it's done or canon to explain it. 

 

Also your link takes me to some random website.

This is a little to vague please specify the ore used.

 

 

From Wiki, on Sith Swords:

 

The rare ores used in its construction resisted lightsabers in much the same manner as cortosis and Phrik alloy, while its polished surface reflected laser beams and other coherent light weapons like a mirror. 

 

 

Can you expand on how you did this and how it works. Can you find a canon explanation for this?

 

 

 

This talisman can bind to individuals, even doing so on call.  Process modified, I assumed that given the uniqueness of ones force aura, an artifact can interpret that and bind to said aura.  Overall though, this is actually a pretty distinct weakness of the item.

 

 

Same for this how it's done or canon to explain it. 

 

 

 

Umm, I can't really explain this one, except to say that it's a result of Sith Alchemy from two master level Sith Lords and the Dark Lord of the Sith.  It's purely a flavor bonus to the item that serves to catalog the exploits of the Assassin based on what information is available to that assassin, and has no impact on PvP. But once again, I would be hesitant to flesh this out because, in the end, the processes of Sith Alchemy isn't heavily explained in canon.

Site for a different image (if you scroll down, it shows a bunch of weapons). Fixed it.

I'm still going to have to ask you to specify what metals you are using in the sub as there is a lot of "rare metals."

Thank you for your assistance so far. I would like to use my second chance and request a new judge.

Alric Kuhn Please let me know if this isn't the proper method of request or if you would like me to post this request somewhere else. Thanks.

This submission has already received several edits and is little more than a canon artifact with some flavoring. Passing this to another judge would be a waste of time.

 

Approved.
