Many RPG do have magic-powered swords, this is not a speedy candidate! --SuperDude 03:41, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • This will garner an overwhelming consensus to delete on VfD, just as the last CSD article you objected to did. But, if you insist, we can push it to VfD. I don't know how to get through to you to show you that creating junk articles like this is not beneficial to Wikipedia; however, the least you could do is accept the fact that these kinds of articles simply aren't going to be kept. androidtalk 04:29, Apr 19, 2005 (UTC)

I don't think this is a speedy. I'm going to take off the notice. The guidelines on speedies are not meant to cover this. Charles Matthews 07:50, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • Good call. I posted it for a speedy since an admin was planning on doing it anyway. Looks like we have ourselves a real article now! Thanks for having a cooler head than I over this issue. - Lucky 6.9 19:16, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Other swords[edit]

should other swords such as Kladenets, Gram, Balmung, etc. be included here? if not: is there some obvious reason why an article listing Mythological/folkloric magic swords should not be made? --illumi 00:17, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Don't see any reason why noteworthy swords shouldn't be included, though as part of discussion might be better than a list.
A list of magical swords would also be fine. Goldfritha 00:26, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

American magic sword[edit]

Hey is there any kind of American mythological magic sword (not from sci fi).... I would think there wouldn't be as they all seem to predate the colonization era.... //// Pacific PanDeist * 09:32, 7 May 2007 (UTC)


Jabberwocky[edit]

Lewis Carrol never specifies exactly what is meant by 'vorpal', Jabberwocky is a very silly poem and vorpal could mean anything from 'sharp' to 'shiny' to 'made of live weasels'. To the best of my knowledge no definition is given by Lewis Carrol. Vorpal blades can be found in many RPGs, and it is D&D that gives vorpal blades the power to decapitate something on a critical hit. (The youth in the poem does hack off the creatures head, but this probably occurs after the creature's death). Paladinwannabe2 19:10, 11 September 2007 (UTC)


Caliburn and Excalibur[edit]

The article says that Caliburn was the name of the Sword in the Stone in Arthurian legend, and was a seperate sword from Excalibur. While most sources do support that the SitS was a different weapon, thos same sources state (And even Excalibur's Wikipedia article.) that Caliburn is simply an earlier name for Excalibur. To my knowledge, the Sword in the Stone never had any name other than "Sword in the Stone." --TwilightDuality (talk) 13:58, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Bolding[edit]

My understanding is that bolding is used for synonyms of the article title, not for examples of the subject. So the names of swords should be unbolded. If I'm misunderstanding the rule, then all the names should be bolded here--one or the other. Nareek (talk) 10:55, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Skofnung[edit]

How about a mention of the sword Skofnung from the saga of Hrolf Kraki?Bobbythemazarin (talk) 15:31, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

References[edit]

The complete dearth of references in this article is absolutely unacceptable and renders it utterly useless. 94.194.213.4 (talk) 11:40, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Maybe be bold and edit the article yourself? Carl Sixsmith (talk) 11:49, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

What if the sword is not physical at least not within this reality or plan of existence? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.52.209.187 (talk) 04:49, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
