The Singing Sword is one of Albion's oldest fables. It tells the tale of a sword whose enormous powers were matched by the perfect pitched voice with which it would sing battle songs. But in some versions of the myth, it was its dreadful lack of tune that would defeat whole armies. This has led some scholars to believe that the tale has its root in Temmins, the worst bard ever to exist. He who once killed an old Hero by regaling him with a monstrously bad melody. Unfortunately, it is only a fable, and such a sword has never existed. However, in Fable III, one of the Legendary weapons is The Swinging Sword, and its description is as follows: "Often misidentified as "The Singing Sword", this weapon thrives on a wielder who is, shall we say, generous with their affections."
