Snake's Steel Sword
Go to the question mark circled in yellow that you see in the picture and circumnavigate the destroyed fortress to find some rocks to climb to the top. You'll find some bandits, including one from Lv. 5 with a halberd capable of firing very powerful shots. Once eliminated, search the fortress to find lots of useful objects and the project for the SNAKE STEEL SWORD.

Silver Sword of the Serpent
This item is located in a catacomb near the mill north of the previous project. In front of the catacomb there is a PLACE OF POWER guarded by a level 7 WRAITH. Use the TRAPPOLA MAGIC sign to hit the Wraith. If you lose half of HP, the spectrum will disappear and you can search the area for clues. Open the door to the catacombs and come down.
