The Atlantean Royal Sword, sometimes informally called ARS, is an artifact weapon that appears in dNetHack and notdNetHack. It is neutral-aligned and favors Barbarians, and its base item is a two-handed sword.


Neutral characters may receive the Atlantean Royal Sword as a sacrifice gift, and it is the first guaranteed sacrifice gift for Barbarians that start their game with a two-handed sword.


The Atlantean Royal Sword has +1d3 to-hit and deals double damage versus all monsters, always shattering the target's wielded weapon on hit. Barbarians can wield the Atlantean Royal Sword in the offhand if they become capable of wielding a two-handed weapon in one hand.
