(852DR) Alavandra, "Protector
of the Realm," is the sword that protects the realm, Galadon,
on the far eastern reaches of Fearun. The sword was created by the
great archwizard and royal mage, K'shar Falador.
Alavandra was created in a time
of the devastating war known as the War of the Dark Lords. Alavandra's
first wielder was a young adventurer named Tybron Opacare (Fighter
19). Not yet out of his teens this young man was chosen by Mystral
to take up the sword and defeat the Dark Lords with the help of
his three friends Aldym of Evereska (Wizard 13/Archwizard 5), Koga
of Helmr (Paladin 18), and Ashrem Whitefire (Ranger 20) lost prince
of the fallen kingdom of Valorin.
The battle between the four heroes
and the Dark Lord raged on for four days leaving the Dark Lord's
mountain destroyed. This victory was not without it's losses for
in order for Tybron to destroy the last Dark Lord he had to sacrifice
himself by distracting the evil Lord so that his comrade Aldym could
cast a devastating new spell called Ultima.
As soon as the spell hit both Dark
Lord and Tybron were destroyed. The only object surviving was the
sword which laid among the ash with out a scratch. Through out the
years Alavandra has never again been called to service until recently
when the Kingdom was under attack by the Avatar of Shar and her
army of darkness. Once again the sword chose a young adventurer
by the name of Gabriel Armial (Fighter 10) along with his three
friends, Sarah of Helm (Paladin 9), Vandrili (Wizard 11), and Revan
great great grandson of Ashrem Whitefire King of Valorin.
These brave adventurers are still
struggling with this new threat to the kingdom but they won't quit
until Galadon is safe.
