This article is about the artifact in SLASH'EM and SlashTHEM. For the Convict patch artifact and other versions, see Luckblade.

Luckblade is an artifact weapon that appears in SLASH'EM and SlashTHEM. It is neutral-aligned and favors gnomes, and its base item is a short sword.


A randomly-generated short sword has a 120 chance of being created as Luckblade. Neutral characters may receive Luckblade as a sacrifice gift.


Luckblade has +5 to-hit and deals +5 damage versus all monsters. While carried, it functions as a luck item.


Luckblade's flat damage bonus against all monsters makes it a powerful weapon early on; combined with its luck enhancement, this makes it one of the best first sacrifice gifts for a neutral character. Later on, it remains a respectable choice for twoweaponing, which SLASH'EM and SlashTHEM allows for artifacts.


In SLASH 6 and other predecessors to SLASH'EM, Luckblade serves as a guaranteed first sacrifice gift for the now-defunct Gnome role.
