Paurnimmen is Brand_Cold. Cubragol is Brand_Fire (though not sure if that works the same way). No non-weapon has Slay_Evil, or indeed any other weapon ability.

Not even a randart, but as memorable early game finds go...

Code:
 an Executioner's Sword of Extra Attacks (4d5) (+6,+7) <+2>
     Found lying on the floor at 300 feet (level 6).
     
     +2 attack speed.
     
     Combat info:
     3.1 blows/round.
     With +4 STR and +0 DEX you would get 3.3 blows
     With +0 STR and +1 DEX you would get 3.3 blows
     Average damage/round: 72.5.
Previously, this character was pretty darn chuffed to be getting a whole 19.2 damage with his lucky find of a Main Gauche (+3,+3).

     *Slays* demons.
     Branded with weak acid, weak frost, weak venom, flames.
     Provides resistance to lightning.
     Provides protection from confusion.
     Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.

reforged lance (poscheng)

I reforged a 200 000+ power randart based on the One ring into a heavy lance. My initial reaction was clearly disappointment - The Heavy Lance of Eternity (6d9) (+16,+19) {FaSi/pT} - nothing spectactular. But then I took a look at the weight - 60.4 lb - yes!!!! 50% more than the heaviest weapon I've found in this game so far.

Wielded it comes out as this:
Code:
 Hand #1: The Heavy Lance of Eternity (9d12) (+16,+19)      Accuracy
 Weight : 60.4 lbs                                           AC Hit
 To Hit : 16 + 70 = 86                                       25 91%
 To Dam : 19 + 94 = 113                                      50 88%
 Blows  : 2.18                                               75 84%
 Damage                                                     100 80%
 Crits  : 2.71x                                             125 77%
 Normal : 590 (298-882) [2.71x]                             150 73%
 Human  : 1108 (377-1839) [6.77x]                           175 69%
 Trolls : 1282 (405-2160) [8.13x]                           200 66%
Blocking is very effective (+66 AC). I guess Crushing Blow is better now too. I only tried it once on Jack of Shadows. He was slightly wounded before this but very dead after one hit.

(edit) Does ?mundanity reset Weight? I've got one plus ? Weapon branding

This one should activate for "opera singing"...

Code:
the Arkenstone of Carmen <+3>
     Found lying on the floor in a vault at 4950 feet (level 99).

     Provides resistance to acid, cold, sound, disenchantment.
     Cannot be harmed by acid, lightning, fire, cold.
     Radius 3 light.

     When activated, it completely lights up and magically maps the current
     level, and detects all doors, stairs and traps in the immediate area every
     38 to 75 turns at your current depth.

I cannot tell people how much I wish this thread could be left to die. Next time I find a memorable randart I'm starting a new thread - anyone who does it before me will have my eternal thanks. Big threads are bad - they slow down old laptops!

when you say "old", exactly how old do you mean? Are you still running DOS?
