Sword of the Dawn
The elf warrior cut down a number of ghouls with the enchanted blade, their ichor ran midnight blue on the cobblestones of the ancient ruins. He looked up at Chalk, nearly out of breathe and splattered in ghoul blood.
“Am I in?” the elf asked.
“That was a very impressive display,” Chalk replied as he turned to the others. He received a mixed bag of reactions. The wizard shrugged.
“Sure, why not,” he finally said.
The elf smiled as he wiped the ghoul blood from the magical sword.
Unassuming, yet well crafted, the Sword of the Dawn is reputedly of elvish make, a sturdy short sword gilded with gold and silver with a large deep red ruby set in the pommel. Hated by the undead and creatures that despise daylight, the Sword of the Dawn is rumored to have cut undead down by the score in ages passed. The lich known as Uglok-Xan has offered a reward of 10,000 gold pieces to anyone surrendering this blade to him as it is rumored that his eternal love, the vampiress Bevinissa was cut down by this sword decades ago.
Benefit: In combat with the living and/or those unaffected by the light of the sun this sword does 1d6+1 damage. However, when facing the undead or creatures like goblins that suffer a penalty when in the full light of the sun the sword shines brightly like the light of a rising dawn, and those creatures take 2d6+2 points of damage from this sword on a successful hit.
Usable by: Anyone who can wield a short sword.
