The Soulreaver by Joachim-Berger The Soulreaver by Joachim-Berger
Yeah! I like how it came out. This is the strongest and most powerful sword that is known in the RTF, some sort of a god-like weapon, forged by the administrator, able to steal the soul of everyone who touches him.

---Edited further description:
The Soulreaver. He is probably the most powerful weapon ever created (In the universes that are controlled by the R.T.F.). He is an artifact of dark magic and able to
suck out the soul of his victim by even the smallest touch. He was created by the administrator and has got a own awareness that does not allow him to speak or to think like a man, but enough to give him some kind of instinct. Thus he developed a certain recalcitrance against his wielder, provided that this person is ever accepted.
There are very few people who are able to handle Soulreaver without being killed by him, and even those experience a feeling of weakness and powerlessness, if Soulreaver allows them to swing him. Even if you do not touch the sword, you can feel in close distance his corrupting influence. He is able to shift the spectrum of visible light so that everything is just visible in black and red. The only way to gain his respect and getting immune to his influence, is to have sucked the soul of another being or killed it with other magic withdrawing skills. But even in the latter cases there is the risk that Soulreaver still kills his wielder on a whim. The only person he submits himself and he really obeys is the administrator, who created him.
Soul robber is also able to perform various other magical attacks, including ranged attacks. It cuts without exception any material as if it is air and can destroy, with a few exceptions, every magical weapon. Even the blades which can resist him by their magic, can not last long before he steals them their magic. There isn't any form of energy, which Soulreaver can not absorb and store in his body. Moreover his capacity is unlimited. The most devastating attack of this weapon is it's ability to destroy whole universes. Since the Dementari are able to travel between them and the number of universes is infinite, the administrator does not need to care if he uses Soulreaver to do so. The blade vanishes than into a rift in the reality and begins to corrupt the natures laws. Then the universe will break with everything into it, even "gods", provided there are any and you say that there are only "normal" gods in it, and no ultimate god who created all the universes, included the one where the administrator comes from.
He can also dish out as much as take in, because he is immune against any known firearm or destructive action, for the reason that he absorbs the energy of each impact and converts it in Energy he can use. There is only one way
Soulreaver can be destroyed at all. The soul crystal in the socket behind the handle has an equivalent counterpart in the sword Runeblade, who is his sister.
Putting her rune stone in place of the soul crystal, Soulreaver is destroyed. The same also works vice versa.
Further more there can exist only one Soulreaver, despite he was not unique. It is with him as early as the sixth generation of the sibling swords pair.
The administrator destroyed the earlier versions of the weapon every time after he knew
how he could create them even more filled with dark magic Power. This fact is, however, known to very few. The first and second generation were designed as short-swords,
third and fourth as long swords, and the fifth was even a sword with two blades.

In my response to you, where I mentioned the video game of this same name, I didn't mean it in any malicious way. The physical design of this sword is actually pretty interesting.

Thanks, it is my sixth concept of this sword.
I heard of the game in the past, at least five years ago, and a friend showed me a walkthrough-book of that game. I found it really interesting, but I don't know much about it and I'm too lazy to get it. In fact I think the name of my sword is inspired by the game. But it was not long ago when I first looked up what it means in German, and it's different from "Seelenräuber" what would be Soul-robber. But that didn't sound nice to me.
