Sword Shrine

The Sword Shrine is a rare biome that can be found underground. The biome contains a rock 'shrine' inside that may or may not contain a weapon. It is a 1/3 chance to be a real weapon, and a 2/3 chance to be a fake. Usually a long hidden vertical shaft will lead to the shrine. Additionally, The real shrine has a 9/10 chance to be an Enchanted Sword, and a rare 1/10 chance to be an Arkhalis.
