Damage: 1d4 S
Special: Analog, operative, tail
Developed by ysoki on Akiton, this slender, lightweight blade has a series of bands that attach the blade to a tail or similar anatomy. Although using a tailblade doesn’t allow you to make additional attacks, it can free up your hands without leaving you unarmed.

This weapon does not use any advanced electronics, computer systems, or electrical power sources. It is immune to abilities that target technology. While this use of the word “analog” is not technically correct when referring to technology, use of the term in this way has become common throughout the Pact Worlds.
An operative can use the trick attack class feature (see page 93) with a weapon that has this special property. Any character can add her Dexterity modifier rather than her Strength modifier on melee attack rolls with weapons with this special property.
If you have a tail (or similar taillike appendage), you can wear a weapon with the tail weapon special property on your tail, rather than wield it in your hand. Attaching or removing a tail weapon is a full action, and once it’s installed, you wield the weapon without using your hands.
