A spatha is a heavy broadsword type weapon, being typically between 30 and 40 inches long and having a particularly broad and strong lemmet. A spatha is therefore more durable than an ordinary sword. Due to its weight and its robust application in warfare, it more easily draws more crippling wounds. The swords equipped by prestigious Viking warriors are examples of this type of sword.

Special: A character wielding a spatha gets a +2 circumstance bonus on any attack rolls associated with Sunder attempts and with defending against Sunder attempts even if he or she wields it with one hand.
