You have heard many things of that great sword Excalibur but have you ever heard of its Irish cousin Excalibrogue.

Now unlike his cousin Excalibur, Excalibrogue was a singing sword. The sword was taken up by the future king of Ireland. As in his cousin's tale, Excalibrogue led his bearer, Aaron, to many great victories.

Unfortunately for history's sake, one night Aaron left the sword too close to the fire.

After that Excalibrogues song was off key and things started going wrong for poor Aaron. He lost his army. He lost his castles. Finally the devil himself came and stole his last cent.

Aaron turned to the sword and begged for answers. The sword said. "You should have known there'd be hell to pay when I lost my temper."
