Crusaders breached the holy city walls, wishing to “take it back”. But we were ready. Their heavy armour, under the blazing sun, sapped their strength and their morale, while we ran between them, accustomed to this heat. Their long, straight swords, great to crush bones and tear apart leather armour, had nothing on us and our agile fighting style.
Furthermore, we could count on our own weapons, slightly curved, single-edged, that were designed for our unique fighting style. Aiming at the joints, which had less metal cover, we were able to hold back these “holy” warriors. We will need to be ready, though. They won't be fooled by our tricks much longer, and God forbid they learn to fight like us...
The Malchus II is a complete reboot of the sword, and thus gains new characteristics. The new handle colours – dark brown and bronze – are perfectly matched with the new steel blade, which gives the weapon a whole new level of realism. The blade was also extended by about 20 centimeters in order to give the user an edge on the battlefield. However, Calimacil's recipe for success stays the same: safe and durable foam, which will give you years of fun.
Middle eastern characters will be compelled to use this sword, which is designed for a more agile fighting style. Moreover, mercenaries preferring mobility over brute force will be able to use the curve of the blade to their advantage without taking back its efficiency. Finally, eccentric characters, like mages and some merchants, will love the unique combination of a classic handle and an out-of-the-ordinary blade, which has a unique style.
