A silver short sword is a weapon in SLASH'EM and SporkHack. It has approximately the same properties as the ordinary short sword save that it is made of silver. Because of this, it is erodeproof and inflicts silver damage against silver-hating monsters. In SporkHack, it's a useful weapon for Tourists, and as an offhand weapon for Valkyries, Knights and other roles limited to Skilled in two-weapon fighting.

The Sword of Balance is the only artifact silver short sword. It is neutral and has a +2 to-hit and +5 damage against cross aligned monsters in addition to the silver damage against silver-hating monsters. Note that SLASH'EM does introduce other artifact short swords.
