This is a simple Katana by design, trimmed in a gold alloy, the blade is of forged elven steel. The guard is made of various compositions and colors of mithril. What sets the Emerald Katana of Power special is the grip, made of a durable wood harvested by the same elves. The wood has healing properties, in which anyone who touches it is given extra strength as well as regenerative properties for small cuts, bruises, and even broken bones or stronger injuries. This Katana proved valuable in Mithandir (mee-thahn-deer) during the onslaught of the Rangoth Orc Tribe in 1012 of the 1st age. The raid by the Orc’s proved powerful and in the end it came down to over 200 orcs with only the remaining injured elves, including Pelindor of the Woodland Realm(Peh-leen-door) who had sustained the least devastating injuries. Pelindor took up the Emerald Katana of Power and destroyed the remaining orcs. Still grasping the sword he stayed alive long enough to be healed by the others. Pelinor sustained three serious stab wounds of rusted Orc blades, as well as 2 arrows in the leg and mid back. The Sword was retired to the cities royal quarters where it rests, awaiting the time in which it will again fight for good.
