Firewall is a lawful athame which serves as a first sacrifice gift for flame mages in SLASH'EM. It provides fire resistance when wielded, and has +4 to hit and damage against monsters which are not fire resistant. As an athame, it can engrave repeatedly and quickly without dulling, provided it is not cursed.
It will work for most flame mages much as Magicbane works for wizards: as a moderately effective weapon, received as a first sacrifice gift, which is used for engraving Elbereth. Most flame mages will ultimately want a stronger weapon, however, since +4 damage is quite underwhelming in SLASH'EM's mid and late games. Firewall should definitely be kept for engraving Elbereth, however. Note that like its big brother Fire Brand, it can destroy potions and scrolls that monsters are carrying.
