"Maow, maow, maoooooooow.
Keyboard, keyboooooard!
Maow, maow, maoooooooow.
Fight some brigands!!
Maow Maow, Maoooow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-owwowwoww-whammy-barrrrruh."

The key-sword-tar is a mystical weapon/instrument, designed by an unnamed warrior-bard. An amazing hybrid of a Keyboard, a guitar, and a sword. It is a +2 longsword that if the weilder has more than 10 ranks in perform (Keyboard Instruments) can cast Rainbow Pattern once per day at the user's character level. (DC is charisma based)

"White man came across the sea
He brought us pain and misery
He killed our tribes, he killed our creed
He took our game for his own need

We fought him hard we fought him well
Out on the plains we gave him hell
But many came too much for cree
Oh will we ever be set free?

Riding through dustclouds and barren wastes
Galloping hard on the plains
Chasing the redskins back to their holes
Fighting them at their own game
Murder for freedom a stab in the back
Women and children and cowards attack

Run to the hills, run for your lives!
Run to the hills, run for your lives!

Soldier blue on the barren wastes
Hunting and killing their game
Raping the women and wasting the men
The only good indians are tame
Selling them whisky and taking their gold
Enslaving the young and destroying the old

Run to the hills run for your lives!"

[Bizarrely, I'm not a fan of Iron Maiden, but this is what this post reminded me of.]

Vaguely reminds me of the keyboardists from Kungfu Hustle.

Maerok: Those are string instruments, not keyboards :P

BTW: To people trying to pedant my pedant: Keyboards are not usually string instruments. Pianos are. Keyboards almost exclusively use electricity to generate sounds, because if it doesn't, then it's just a piano.

BTW2: I've seen that movie a bajillion times. Seriously.

Shouldn't the keyswordtar do extra damage to brigands?
