Sanskreet was on a trip of bad luck. The young aarakocra had been offered a chance to guard a caravan. He did not know the caravan was heading straight through Eldarrich to his dismay, 3 templars found him in the back of the caravan. He gave a spirited fight using his hocatch and papiks, but in the end, he went down to an obsidian blade. Later they searched him and found some strange weapons...

Hocatch: a six-foot long pole with two small razor sharp bone blades attached to the end. dmg 1d6/1d4

Papiks: a psionically hardened obsidian bar with a rope and a handle attached. dmg 2d4/1d6

Gor-kath: a short knife which the Winter Nest aarakocra use in their defiler castrating rites. dmg 1d4/1d2

Bazm: a two-foot long bone pole attached to a handle and has its tip sharpened dmg 1d8/1d8

Kapacn:a curved knife with attached teeth of various monsters. Owning one is a sign of status in aarakocra society. 1d6/1d8
