Katana of Fire
Part of the Elemental Nemuranai
The Katana of Fire is a DR 4k3 Katana. In addition, every successful strike with the weapon deals the wielder’s Honor Rank in fire damage (so a character with Strength 3 and Honor 5 would deal 7k3 damage plus an additional 5 fire damage). The Katana of Fire is treated as a Katana for purposes of mechanics such as Kenjutsu Mastery abilities and Techniques.
Finally, once per day, it may be used to cast The Fires From Within as a Rank 4 shugenja with a Fire Ring one higher then the character’s own. (This does not count as using a spell slot, if the character is a shugenja.)
The Katana of Fire has a hilt wrapped in scarlet threads and a saya inscribed with symbols of elemental fire. When the sword is drawn from its sheath flames erupted, burning more brightly in the presence of Tainted or dishonorable foes.
