The Scrolls of Peng Qi contain the story of a monk who shaped a flawless staff using only swatches of silk. At first the silk did nothing but polish the rough wood, but after thirty-four years the staff was perfectly smooth, straight, and flawless. After finishing the staff, the monk told his abbot he was going for a walk to test his new staff, and he never returned. An exiled warrior discovered the staff and attached a sharp blade that is every bit as perfect as the staff itself. It has since been adorned with precious metalss, flawless as ever.

Blade of the Broken Brough
The story of the Broken Bough is a sad page in the history of the Jade Empire. When Emperor Zuwan, 9th emperor in the time of divisions, died suddenly with no heir, his wife, Seng Si, assumed the throne to prevent chaos.

When war erupted a decade later the Imperial Army would not follow her orders, so she took up a sword and asked instead that they follow her lead.

Thorn and Shining Carp
This blade is claimed by two legends, one from the Prosperous East and one from the Golden Delta. In the first, a flower girl was wronged by an offical, and an outlaw incited revenge for his own purposes. Trapping the official, the women beat him savagely with a bouquet of roses, the thorn raking eyes and skin. An observing fox spirit frowned on hatred abusing such beauty and transform the flowers into a sword. The offical was killed, leaving the woman to ponder the hardening of her heart. In the second tale, an outlawed instead urged restraint and suggested asking the river for guidance. A golden carp answered the women’s plea and, as it swam by, the sun on its scales took the shape of a blade that fell in the shallows at her feet. She took up arms in the spirit of justice and order was restored. Stories—and people—change with the influence that others bring.

User- Dawn Star.

Maker’s Bane and Placid Guiju
Maker’s Bane was forged from a falling star that tore from the heavens as the Celestrial Dragon shaped the world. The loss of life resuilting from its use is thoroughly predictable. Placid Guiju is a sepulcher for the God of Agricultural Poetry. Guiju of Words and Land transformed into a piowshare to aid the workers of the Golden Delta, but was trapped when the farmers remade their tools into weapons to repel the invading Horselords. Pounding plowshares to swords might have held ironic appeal, but being an axe causes injury to Guiju’s poetic sensibilities. The effectiveness of this blade is agony for his gentile spirit, an insult that will eventually destroy him and strip ‘field verse’ from the Lexicon of the Ages. It also makes the wielder slightly giddy.
Stats- These Legendary Duel axes can be used for focus, and deal double damage martial wielders.
Like two old friends who happen to have razor sharp edges, Whirlwind’s axes, have been with him a long time. According to their engravings, they’re called “Left and “Right”, though some suspect the names to be little more than a mnemonic. Whirlwind simply thinks of these axes as “The Twins” and considers them his most valuable—and possibly only— possessions. They may lack an epic history, but in Whirlwind’s hands they’re unquestionably deadly.
Stats- these legendary twin axes are focus weapons and deal double damage to Open Palm followers.
The Celestial Stars
These weapons were not forged by a living blacksmiths, but a dead one. For some strange reason- your heritage as a spirit monk may enter into it- these weapons ended up in the hands of a living being. This Unique circumstance gives them some equally unique properties. While you wield these weapons you enter a state between life and death. That makes you as immune to weapons and support style as ghost are. These weapons are equally part of the realm of the living as they are part of the realm of the dead. Weapons like these are the stuff of legend among Spirits Monks. Their kind is found in historical records only. And while the records are believed to be accurate, it is unknown how such weapons could possible come to be. No weapon of this kind is known to currently exist.
