A long, massive, ornate ebony blade of the otherworldly material lzarawn, borne of unholy
sorcery. Hundreds of arcane symbols run its length, varying in size from more than half a
dimin across to barely the size of the iris of a human eye. The pommel is of the same ebony
material, but bound in leather, contrasting with the blade. The arcane symbols themselves
are carved deeply into the material of the blade, and glow a faint crimson. Just above the
pommel is a triangular guard, golden in color. You recognize it as a lzrelekos, one of a
class of potent magickal weapons. The lzrelekoi are believed to be, one and all, demonic
creatures bound into the shape of swords, their foul powers turned to the purpose of draining
their victims' life-essence and transforming it into unholy strength for their wielders.
The blood-thirst of the demon blades is also noted; the evil intelligences within them are
said to often force their would-be masters to slay friends and innocents. This is the legendary
Stormbringer, called demon blade, soul-drinker, heart-reaver, and more in a march of names down
through the ages. It is known for draining the life from its victims and feeding that energy
to its wielder as great strength of limb, and also for the tales of treachery and ill fate which
inescapably accompany it.
