    Survivor Swords: FLAME TONGUE WINS!

    [h/t Zaardnar]

    This thread is inspired by the prior threads on the core classes, the core races, the core alignments, feats, and iconic artifacts. After delving into some other topics (really, Draconic?), it is time to get back to the nitty gritty of 5e with the magic swords that we all know and love! Unlike the other survivor threads, this one really really (really?) matters. Because, well, without swords, why are we even playing? What- are you one of those rapier lovers?

    That's right- every single one of remembered a time when it was, "Look, kids, a Longsword +1, a Longsword+1, Big Ben, Parliament." But every now and then, we'd get a magic blade worth it's salt. And now, we shall learn what blade was the sharpest, the magicalest, the coolest, and the most desired. What blade a Bladelock locks if a Bladelock could lock this blade.


    IMPORTANT NOTE- DOWNVOTES ARE ONLY WORTH 2 IN THIS THREAD. BECAUSE SNICKETY-SNACK.

    Each sword starts with 20 points and you vote for one sword you like which gets 1 point and a sword you dislike which loses 2 points. It is intentional that a negative vote is worth more than a positive vote- first, being this swords are all about doing damage, not about healing. Second, because.

    Upvotes are in green, downvotes are in in red (unless you are on your phone, and are unable to). Copy and paste the previous posters vote and change the numbers. You may vote once per day. This is an honor system, and we are all honorable gamers; please do not abuse it. If this means you vote once at night one day, and once the next morning - that's fine, but don't vote again until the following day.

    This is purely a popularity contest and you do not have to explain an upvote or downvote, but feel free to- explanations are where the fun is! When downvotes reach 0 the language is eliminated (FATALITY!). Finally, if a sword has one vote left, then you have to make the choice to use all of your downvotes to eliminate it; there is no vote splitting.

    Two important points that you must read before voting-
    1. This is a pure popularity contest, and is meant to be fun. You can cast your votes for whatever reason you want. Spite, irrational love/hate, gameplay mechanics, strategic voting, hating paladins, and so on is perfectly acceptable. Do you hate Holy Avengers because Paladins use them, and you hate Paladins? Do you want a Frost Brand because it's, um, cool? Do you ever shout out, when you roll a crit with your flametongue, "Better get some water, because I'M ON FIRE!" It's all good! This vote does not affect anything in real life, and no swords will be removed from 5e (or added) because of your vote. You can comment for the reasons for your vote, or not- up to you! But this is for enjoyment only.

    2. I am using "iconic" swords that have existed since time immemorial (aka, 1e), but does not include artifacts (no Sword of Kas) or newer weapons (Sun Blade, Light Saber).

    As always, the list is the list, please do not alter it.



    Katana Nope. You knew it was coming. But Katana cannot be placed in any list with other blades. Katana wins everything, forever.

    Frost Brand 20 +1 = 21. Gotta give some love to Flame Tongue's opposite.

    Life Stealing 18 -2 = 16. Stormbringer wannabe. Agreed.
