Memory fail: a MUD with an artifact guild/class/race?

I was going through my old mudding notes tonight and found some related to a MUD that I now vaguely remember playing, where you could play as a weapon that other players would wield. Can't remember if it was set up as a guild, class or race. And for the life of me, I can't remember the name of the MUD. Does it ring any bells for anybody here?

Edit: Apparently it was a guild. That and some other things (like existence of a "wimpy" command) might suggest it was an LP MUD.

In the original God Wars (and its derivatives), demons could shapechange into demonic swords and remain in that form for as long as they wished - you'd sometimes get stronger demons bullying weaker demons into serving them as weapons. The idea was inspired by Stormbringer (from the Elric novels) and Realm of Chaos (an RPG/wargaming publication for Warhammer), not another MUD. If any other MUD offers/offered the same feature, I'm not aware of it.

Note that 'wimpy' is a stock feature in Merc (probably in Diku as well).

Re: Memory fail: a MUD with an artifact guild/class/race?

It wasn't GW demons, I actually never played any Godwars (other than GW2, obviously).

It was a guild where you were a weapon and that was all you were, so you had to find a wielder in order to gain experience. So while it was original, it was a somewhat problematic concept and I would love to see (or hear, if somebody knows it) how it has developed.

This is one of the help files I had saved:
Code:
Commands available in group "artifacts":
artstat                  - -
artifacts                - List all present artifacts.
artiprompt               - Setup a default Artifact prompt.

eq                       - Display keeper's equipment.
combat, kill             - Can't be used.
flee, quit               - Can't be done while in the world of men.
