Eschatologist's Weapon

You cannot lift this weapon easily. Only once you ponder that it might end a life, and you come to terms with that possibility, is it light enough to carry.

Crafted by Kvarti Gorbatiy, a carbine with this enchantment was gifted to the constables (specifically Alain Templeton for reasons of practicality) as thanks for dismantling the terrorist Eschatologist cell in Flint.
