Sword of Kings/Broken King's Blade
This sword has a silver and gold dust encrusted dragon bone hilt and a blade of obsidian, however the blade is broken, leaving only the first four inches of what was once a truly beautiful blade. This blade is the shattered remains of a legendary sword wielded by Paladine himself, passed down to the most worthy ruler; until it was given to Baranabus, now known as The Broken King after his descent into madness which nearly shattered the unity of the realm. Paladine reclaimed the sword until he deemed a new ruler or guardian worthy of its power.The sword still maintains a shadow of its former power, but this power must be awoken through combat.
