The sister sword of 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, Rachelle 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 millennia later. 

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. 


Greater Transformative

In addition to functioning as the normal transformative special weapon property, the weapon’s shape can be altered at its wielder's command to become a melee weapon of the same type as its original weapon type at the time of construction. For example, a Medium transformative longsword can take the shape of any other Medium sword, such as a Medium short sword, Medium scimitar, or a Medium greatsword. 


Unknown at this time.


Like its father blade, Glimmerwyn, The Righteous was rediscovered in an ancient and powerfully enchanted vault with a number of other artifacts by the heroes of the Off-Worlder War; Odorian Lightbringer, Wu Yan Ravenhill, Aragast Anadriel, and Blackroot Brambleburr, along with their companions Sir Duncan Ironhold and Lionel, envoys of the Sovereign Queen of Ara. 

During its discovery, the sword was held in the hands of the paladin hero Odorian Lightbringer. Once in his grasp, a female voice spoke to his mind. After communicating with her for a short time, he learned that the voice he heard was that of the long lost daughter of the great Paladin King Ahman Bloodstone himself, Rachelle Bloodstone. Her soul had been trapped within the sword by a powerful wizard and enemy of her father at the time of her disappearance, where she remained, lost to history until that moment. 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 a week of study and research, she was freed and returned to a newly resurrected body. From that time forward, she refused to wield her former blade, but remained a close companion of Odorian and his friends. Over time the two fell in love and eventually married. 

Once the woman's spirit was released from the sword, Glimmerwyn was placed into the hands of Odorian's sister, Kirri Lightbringer, with Rachelle's blessing. Kirri wielded it throughout the Off-Worlder War and beyond until her eventual death at the age of 90 years as a Knight Marshal 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, the blade reappears to aid those in need against the evil influences of the world.
