"Please accept my surrender. Here's my blade. Please. No treasure is worth my life."
Selene, if convinced to surrender.[src]

The Blackwater Blade is a leveled Fine Steel Longsword found on Selene, the leader of the Blackwater Brigands.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

Selene and the rest of the Blackwater Brigands are found during the side-quest "An Unexpected Voyage." The Hero can take the longsword from her body after she is killed. Alternatively, they can convince Selene to surrender; by answering questions correctly about her operation. Once this is done, she will surrender and give the Blackwater Blade to the Hero as a reward. However, if any of the questions are answered incorrectly, she will attack the Hero on sight, making killing her the only way to receive the blade.
