Wasn't the last status cool? I would love to be a Hunter of Artemis! Here's another cool status, but this status is a bit... different. We all know about the legendary pen/sword, Riptide. Don't you think it'd be difficult to find? To me, it seems nearly impossible to have! But there is someone at camp with Riptide!

 

Riptide or Anaklusmos is a Celestial Bronze weapon previously owned by the hero, Percy Jackson. It is a prized sword that is deadly on gods, demigods, Titans, Giants, and monsters. There is only one person with this fascinating pen, this person is...

A little bit more about this status... When the sword is not in use, it is disguised as a normal pen. And yes, it is fully functioning and has glowing ink that appears to look like celestial bronze! If Riptide were to be dropped, lost, or thrown, it will appear back in the owner's pocket.

 

The best part is, if the owner is not currently wearing pockets, the pen won't return until they are wearing clothing with pockets.

 

1. How did you first feel when receiving Riptide?

I just happened to obtain the wonderful blade on the course of my travels. I happened to stop into a Pawn Shop in Southern New York when I happened to actually stumble across Riptide. I was just browsing around and each time I stopped browsing I happened to stop in front of the Pen. At this point, I felt that I really needed to buy the pen. Little did I know that the pen was actually the Fabled Blade Riptide!

 

2. What is the coolest perk the pen/sword gives you?

Well, the best part of it is being able to go around and having everyone think that I am completely defenseless. Then out of nowhere I all of a sudden I have a blade and it can completely throw someone off.

 

3. Would you trade Riptide for a different weapon?

Absolutely not, I am proficient in all weapons but the Sword is one of my best weapons that I have managed to learn properly. So Riptide has a very special place in my pocket, and is now one of my favored weapons!

 

4. Tell me something interesting about the weapon.

The weapon is very light for a Celestial Bronze Weapon, It is actually very light and very easy to use! It doesn't do well when thrown because it turns back into a pen and reappears in my pocket, so I can't actually throw it, anyone... Sadly...

 

Why don't you look away for a second so I can grab Riptide and run? ;) This status is beyond cool! Thank you so much, Stephen!
