The Dragon Blades

(K: “Kuugor Dag”)

Category:
weapon (melee)
Description:

Three swords made for the King’s personal champions by Tethior, they have similar appearance and powers, yet they are not identical. All are of an enchanted white metal, with a clear blue orb in a silver dragon-claw pommel, all blades are somewhat curved with a cruelly jagged edge, though the design varies. They can only be wielded by full-blood Lotana, or by someone who is ‘blessed’ by an heir of Yaalc Muul (anyone else who tries to use one takes 1D10 hits every time they try to pick up the sword; each time they pick it up or every time they unsheathe it).

They glow with a cold blue light, add an additional +10, and are ‘Holy’ (make roll on the ‘Holy’ Critical Hit table) when used within a hundred feet of Yaalc Muul or his heirs, who were foretold to be able always sense the presence of the bearers of these great weapons and if used against creatures not from this plane of existence. The names of the swords are etched on the blades in Kugor.
