Scorpius, the Sword of Lies is one of the Teeth of the Dragon, a legendary elven blade crafted of bloodmetal.


The Sword of Lies is one of the two forgotten Teeth of the Dragon, along with Uriel, the Sword of Dawn. Forged long ago for the elven bard Cullwch, for most of the last 10,000 years, it was hidden in the World Below in the possession of the Rock Elves, until it was recovered by the Riojan bard Alejandro de Modesto. Alejandro wielded it for a brief time before giving it to Lady Sariel the vampire queen. Lady Sariel attempted to use Scorpius in an assassination attempt on Ajax, but she was vaporized when Ajax destroyed Orion. Its current location is unknown.

In-Game Abilities[]

In the game, Scorpius is a magical longsword with the finesse property. It grants a +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it. If wielded by a bard, they may expend a single use of Bardic Inspiration to re-roll an attack or saving throw or force an enemy to do the same. Once per day, they may force a wizard to make a Wisdom saving throw or forget one of their prepared spells.[1]

Behind the Scenes[]

The name Scorpius is an homage to the Scorpion Clan from Legend of the Five Rings. Its abilities were not determined until Matt decided it would be found by Alejandro de Modesto, a bard character played by Anna at the time, and he chose abilities that would suit the character.[2]
