God-Gutter is an Affinity Gravity Blade. It was originally in the possession of a high-ranking Rajhskha warrior of the ValuSelu Pact , but killed its owner and defected to the Archive when its owner became tyrannous.
It remained in the Archive vaults for many years until giving itself to Akshaya Mahima during an attack from the The House of Sorrows.
Akshaya married the blade. It remains with her at all times.
Records and descriptions over time have revealed that God-Gutter has morphed over time, changing from the standard grey-matte metal of its original form to the more distinct, modern appearance. The blade is shimmering white, chromium in color and with prismatic tones in the right light. The handle is golden.
The shape of the blade is more straight-backed than the original Rajhska blade, and features mehndi etchings on the grip and the base of the blade.
God-Gutter has the power to detect Monoliths within a range of about 10 meters of itself, and will inform the bearer how powerful the Monolith is and what they are a Monolith of. It also seems particularly disruptive to Monoliths, and can force them to show their Affectations of Grace or disrupt the Monolithic Feats with its very presence, on top of being particularly wounding to them if it cuts them.
The massive Gravity Blade sheathed across Akshaya's back hummed as it held her near-weighless. Her talons dug into the hard stone of the cliff face, clattering and scraping with each handful of rock she took to fling herself upwards.
She crested the ridge. Shouts of panicked surprised greeted her visage as her expression contorted into rage and glory. In an instant the sword whistled to her hand, and issued a loud, chest-kicking thwum as it fluctuated gravity and sent her launching down with such shattering force that her landing left the shattered viscera and bisected corpses of several soldiers in her wake...
God-Gutter is patient. Despite its name it is not an aggressive weapon, and seems to work best in complement to wise, veteran warriors who are not a slave to their passions.
It is a stubborn Affinity, and only allows its bearer to use its power when it believes a Monolith needs to be killed, which is typically when they are using their powers to bring harm instead of peace.
It is not a weapon which would abide a tyrant, and killed its original owner for the very act.
Wow, this was an absolutely amazing article to read! I finally found an example of worldbuilding that mentions my own country and nails the Indian cultures and name absolutely perfectly! Besides that, this article was a blast to read in other ways as well. The way you describe this sentient blade. How Akshaya married it and the personality of the blade all make for an amazingly short but incredible article to read! The only thing that could improve it would be a link to the monoliths or even just a tooltip. I do want to know though, what is the history behind this blade? How and why was it forged and who did it? Anyhows, Congratulations and keep up the amazing work!
