Sword Seeks Human Champion to Destroy Lolth
Aerifrial is an ancient and nearly indestructible weapon created by a well-meaning cabal of eladrin. It now seeks out a human champion to wield it who is worthy of fighting on the behalf of the fey. The goal of the sword is to eventually ask its wielder to willingly meld his or her mind to Aerifrial, the spirit of the sword, so they can become “one” in their efforts to find a way to destroy the drow and Lolth, demon queen of spiders. This is meant to bring mankind and the fey closer together and to aid in the sword’s efforts to make the world a better place. The sword, infused with a silvery sliver of the life force of Corellon, god of the fey, strives to protect eladrin, elves, and other fey creatures from harm, as well as those humans who are aligned to their cause. It continuously attempts to further that god’s agenda in the world. Should any fey creature ever prove to be evil, though—by committing more than one evil act or by committing a very heinous act—the sword will order its wielder to smite that creature as well. Lighter and stronger than adamantine, Aerifrial is indestructible by normal means. It is thought, though, that if one were to convince the god Corellon, who helped create it, to utter magic words to pull his sliver of essence from it, it would lose its special properties. Other ways may exist to destroy it as well, but they are not readily known and will require extensive research to determine.
For the DM:
Originally designed for the generic Points of Light setting or Forgotten Realms, Aerifrial can easily be adapted to other settings. Simply change the name of the god Corellon to some other, alternate god.
