Gorean Chronicles: Worldbook Sample ‘Q’

Quiva

FUND IT

Quiva: The saddle knives of the wagon people are around a foot long. Traditionally seven of them are sheathed in their saddles of their steeds while one – or more – are carried on their person in separate sheathes. Quiva are perfectly balanced for throwing and this is what they are notorious for.

Observations:
Quiva seem too large to be accurately thrown but the weight gives them force and makes them fly true – albeit over short distances. In a paga tavern in Turia a merchant who had traded with the wagon people and learned to use the knife demonstrated this by striking a grape held between a paga slave’s lips. They were grazed and bled a little but it was still impressive and he wasn’t even one of the Wagon People.
