Excalibur

“Some random magical sword is going to arbitrarily touch the will of the Norns and decide to come out when it likes someone who polishes its haft?”

gold lions as its crossguard
its gilded
so age would be difficult to say
1:16 AM gold not tarnishing
but it would be very fair craft
me: "It makes no sense this is still here. "
::: unless it be a trap.:::
::: something to lure knights over and then taking it something terrible happen to them:::
1:17 AM Sarah: “still here?”
“you know what it is?”
me: he would crane to look if it had writing or name on it
“I don’t. Its a sword hilt anyway.”
“But if the castle was abandoned, who would leave a sword? They are expensive. Most peasants never make enough in a lifetime to afford one.”
1:18 AM “So they aren’t often just left about.”
Sarah: it would have wonderous figures, winged lions as crossguard
me: “It is beautiful.”
Sarah: knotwork in high relief of wolves and boars at the top
1:19 AM interwoven in trees
me: “I would be fool to chastise Iefan with that damned boat and then go touching this thing.”
::::but I do want to be a fool.:::
he would sigh
1:20 AM and look for any inscriptions on the floor or around
clues to what it was
Sarah: there are none
it is just there in the center of the five stars
