The Death Scythe

The Death Scythe is a truly fearsome magical weapon. This scythe glows with blue, magical death energies, warning everyone of the danger they will face when engaging its wielder. This weapon not only causes horrible wounds, it actually drains its victims of their life energy like a vampire, bringing foes a quick demise. This makes the Death Scythe one of the strongest, and most cruel, weapons ever available in Britannia.

For its terrible powers, this weapon is thankfully only rare to find in the Lands of Lord British in Ultima VII. The Ferryman of Skara Brae is known to hold one, but no one dares to take it from him. One is found on the Isle of Fire in the Test of Love after pulling a hidden lever behind the Stone of Castambre. A third can be found in the Crypts of Skara Brae at 53S 64W, after pulling a hidden lever behind a nearby statue.

Trivia Edit

  • It is surely no coincidence that the Ferryman has this weapon, since he closely resembles the Grim Reaper.
  • It is impossible to take the Ferryman's scythe. In the game's programming he is defined as an object and not an NPC, and therefore he does not have an inventory (notice that he never moves either); the scythe is part of his sprite.
  • The scythe actually has two additional powers: it casts the spell Curse on the foe, if hit, and it drains the victim's mana like the Magebane.
