During the Merethic Era, when the Aylieds reigned supreme over the heartlands of Tamriel, their great Arcane Smiths frequently forged powerfully enchanted weapons made of Meteoric Iron and Aylied Steel, with Welkynd Stones to accentuate their enchanting power. These weapons were frequently awarded to nobles and officers, and to common soldiers that performed beyond the call of duty in the face of the enemey. Many of these weapons persist today, kept safe as collectors' items in Ayliedophiles' houses, used by unsavory folk in the wilderness whom happen upon them, or by the undead revenants of the very Aylieds that they were given to. Some have been lying untouched within Aylied ruins for millenia.
