A parazonium is a type of one-handed weapon that appears in SpliceHack and Hack'EM. When unidentified, it appears as a triangular dagger.


Parazoniums are very rare.

Gnoll shamans and skeletons can be generated with a parazonium.


A parazonium is superior to all regular daggers in regards to base damage. In Hack'EM it is possible to create them through #crafting daggers and knives together. Since they stack, it may be worth creating a collection if your role specializes in daggers.


The parazonium first appears in SpliceHack.

Encyclopedia entry

A parazonium is a long triangular dagger, wide at the hilt end and coming to a point. In Roman mythology, it is frequently carried by Virtus, particularly in early representations. It is also sometimes carried by Mars, or Roma, or the emperor, giving them the aura of courage.
