DESCRIPTION

The sister sword of the the Paladin King, Ahman Bloodstone (see Lightbringer), Glimmerwyn, Sword of the Righteous was forged by powerful clerics of the gods Seker and Jors Guardarm to uphold the edicts of freedom and righteousness. This +4 called greater transformative keen thundering adamantine holy avenger longsword was dedicated to the cause of defeating evil foes. Often wielded by the Paladin King's daughter, Ra'shelle Bloodstone, Glimmerwyn became feared by the enemies of righteousness until at some time around the age of 25, she vanished without a trace, leaving only her sword behind. Her father, the King, grieved her and never knew what became of her, not even when he died of a broken heart a few years later. 

Kept is a place of honor for generations among the Bloodstone line, it one day was lost to history, and never seen again until it resurfaced at the same time as her father's sword, Lightbringer, and a number of other holy and powerful artifacts. At the time of its recovery, the sword was held in the hands of the great hero and paladin Odorian Lightbringer. It was then, that a female voice spoke to his mind. After speaking with her for a time, he discovered that the voice was that of the long lost daughter of the great Paladin King Ahman Bloodstone himself. She had been trapped within the sword by a powerful wizard and enemy of her father at the time of her disappearance, where she had remained, lost to history until then. Odorian and his friends sought for a way to release her from her prison and return her to her body that had long fallen to dust. Finally, after weeks of study and research, she was freed and returned to a newly resurrected body. From that time, she refused to wield her former blade but remained a companion of Odorian and her friends. Over time the two paladins fell in love and eventually married. 

Once the sword had been freed of the woman's spirit, the sword was placed into the hands of Odorian's sister, Kirri Lightbringer with Ra'Shelle's blessing. Kirri wielded it throughout the Off-Worlder War and beyond until her eventual death at the age of 90 years as aKnight MArchal of the Knights of Bloodstone. The sword was then handed down through the Lightbringer line for three generations until it once again disappeared. However, on occasion, reappears to aid those in need against the evil influences of the world.  

In the hands of a neutral good or chaotic good individual, only the sword’s enhancements and detect evil and daylight spell-like abilities function. However, in the hands of a lawful good paladin, Glimmerwyn’s full power is revealed and the wielder gains access to all its powers and abilities. 

SPECIAL ABILITIES

   scimitar, or a Medium greatsword.
