A glamered weapon has the ability to appear as an entirely different weapon, which must be chosen when the weapon is given this enhancement and cannot be changed thereafter.
Only its visual appearance changes – the weapon still feels and acts like its original form, and anyone interacting with the weapon receives a Will save (DC15) to realise the illusion. The glamer ability can be supressed or resumed as a standard action. Popular uses of glamered weapons are to conceal one’s identity by having one’s world-famous legendary weapon appear as a mundane one, to carry a type of weapon considered illegal in certain lands, or to disguise a deadly assassin’s weapon as a harmless quarterstaff.
