Vampiric Sword

Change log
- Fixed issue when Valdii's Tongue sword cannot be improved with arcane blacksmith perk.
- Initial release.

Adds new standalone, unique one-handed sword in the game. I made this weapon from scratch, was a bit inspired after Dawnguard DLC was announced. Weapon can be improved and crafted once ebony smithing perk is acquired. Serana will have this weapon in hers inventory from the start. Also there is more powerful, enchanted version of this sword called Voldiir's Tongue, you can find it in Volkihar castle, North tower.
