Issaiha Contest Submission #26

Name: Issaiha by youyyo2

This miniature conmemorates not a survivor but a sword, the one named Issaiha (one cut blade, 一切刃) which was a zambato crafted in the early years of our settlement. It earned its name when a fight against a lion started. Its bearer aproached the lion and attacked, hitting the lion in the neck…cutting it off in one brutal strike. Since then, the survivor who carried the blade did a higher than average amount of crits. Amazing, right? Imagine our surprise when it happened again.
This time the carrier was a woman named Pin, and the party was hunting a level 2 antelope. It retreated past the overwhelming darkness and we followed. We were hunting for it when we found it…dead, killed by a level 3 lion. So we fought it but Pin failed two attacks against him and then another survivor, who carried a bone helmet and had lost all his survival in the overwhelming darkness, was killed. We were all thinking the party was gonna get wiped, but Pin surged and this time hit the lion in the chest, impaling his heart.
The miniature depicts the weary Pin returning home with Issaiha and the helmet of his fallen companion.
