An ornate gold and mithiril bastard
sword. The hilt is wide and has a circular emblem in the center.
The emblem depicts a strange rune. The pommel of the sword has a
large curved fire opal put into it. The blade of the sword is competely
bare of ornamentaion but appears to vary in color between gold and
silver. When wielded it functions as a shortsword or as a bastardsword,
whichever the user is proficient in.
The first documented appearance of this sword
is in The Calming, the time when the gods themselves descended into
the world and calmed the lands. They sent the demons that ravaged
the lands into the lower planes of hell, thus beginning the history
of the mortals.
The sword was wielded by Sariel. Sariel was a
solar in the highest chorus until he decided that it was his time
to lead and revolted during The Calming. He was banished by the
gods to a place more wretched then hell some say.
The first event in the history after The Calming
was when a warrior named Levi found the sword amoungst the ruins
of an ancient city where the Sariel fell. He used it in the epic
war that joined his lands. He won many of the battles by it's edge
almost dying many times. He often took to many risks in battle and
that worried many of his generals.
Levi was killed when he confronted a horde of
giants in one of his county's final battles to liberate their lands.
He confronted them alone with his sword and died. The battle was
still won and the lands restored but a new king was chosen.
The sword was rumored to be cursed after this
incident and buried with Levi. Looters retrieved the sword many
years later from Levi's tomb and it has not been seen ever since.

Curse: After one week of possessing the blade, the owner
becomes overly selfish about the sword. After the owner becomes
obsessed with the blade it begins suggesting to the weilder to take
irrational risks in combat. Also whenever the owner tries to draw
a weapon, the owner will instinctivly draw the Morning Star (the
owner can not draw any other weapon). The owner will never willingly
hand over the Morning Star and will do anything within their power
to get it back. The owner can only remove the sword from his possession
if a spell of Remove Curse is cast by a 10th level or higher spell
caster. The curse can be purged from the sword if it is brought
to the forge which created it.
