A reliquary weapon is a rather gruesomely holy weapon, incorporating a body part of a holy warrior or divine champion into its design. Some reliquary weapons might be quite subtle, incorporating a finger bone into the handle, whilst others may be rather more blatant, with the iron-bound skull of a long-dead hero forming the hammerhead.
Such items are never for sale in markets, though they are worth at least five times the normal price of such a weapon. These items are gifts from the cult or treasures found or recovered.[1a]
