Loi Metalworks is based on Landunder, and is a useful source for those seeking power weapons. They have centuries of experience in melding swords and other bladed weapons with the finest Adeptus Mechanicus power field generators, producing superior weapons that will serve as heirlooms for a Rogue Trader’s family for generations. Even with the field disabled, the distinctive green-tinged blade is a match for most other close combat weapons. It is said that Loi keeps close ties to the Magos of the Lathes, and that Mechanicus Techpriests work with them as “honored overseers.”
Loi-Pattern Burning Blade
What started as a series of malfunctioning power swords from the disreputable Clovis Munitorum became a new weapon type after users discovered the faulty field conduits raised the temperature of the blade to over 600 degrees. Loi Metalworks investigated and created what are now known as burning blades, power swords that deliberately create intense heat along their blade so as to burn flesh to the bone with each strike. Heavily insulated so that the user feels little of the inferno raging inches from their palm, these swords are nevertheless extremely dangerous to the wielder as well as their opponents. On a successful hit, the target must pass a Challenging (+0) Agility Test or be set on fire.

Loi-Pattern Power Axe
Unlike the more common Mezoa power axe with its broad blade, the Loi model sacrifices some cutting edge length for a longer haft, thus keeping the weight roughly the same. As it can be swung in a longer arc, it can strike with greater penetration. Each is almost a 1.5 meters in length, and some users modify the top of the axe in order to fashion a very intimidating walking stick. This weapon requires two hands to use.
