Version 0.23: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.
A purple glaive that was created by a mad god, and carries a curse which transforms anyone wielding it into a prune. Fortunately, the curse works very slowly, and one can use it briefly with no consequences worse than slightly purple skin and a few wrinkles.

+12 glaive

Vorpal brand


The glaive of Prune[1] is a straightforward enough artefact: a +12 glaive of chopping. The "prune curse"[2] on this weapon has no actual in-game effect, other than making Zin hate it. Most characters who happen to use two-handed polearms will find the glaive of Prune to be perfectly sufficient for winning the game. A fully enchanted, branded bardiche might outperform this weapon in situations where its brand can take full effect, but will require considerably more skill to use effectively.


Prior to 0.15, the glaive of Prune had a +4,+12 enchantment.
