Recharging the sword takes a Resolve-mental skill check. Taking an action in combat to do this gives no penalties to the action. Critical failure costs 2 PSPs and does not recharge the sword. Failure does nothing. Ordinary success reloads 5 charges for each PSP spent. Good success reloads 10 charges for each PSP spent. Amazing success fully recharges the sword for 0 PSPs. If done out of combat, the hero can choose to focus on recharging the sword and gain -1/-2/-3 step bonus on the check depending upon the results of a Battle Mind check that costs no PSPs.
Named for the likely pronunciation of the inscription on the handle, the artifact was unearthed in a dig on the 4th planet of the Debinal system in 2389 by Fomalhautian archeologists led by Aliknar Xiphos. As it had no apparent function, it ended up as an oddity in Aliknar’s collection. After passing through several generations of the Xiphos family it came into the posession of Arton Xiphos, Aliknar’s great grandson. Activated and powered by Arton’s psionic awareness, the artifact seemingly bonded to him and his bioelectric signature.
