Dal’Endal, The Breath of Stars

[Mystical Item]: Longsword

  • [Spirit Leech: Roll 1d5 after basic attacks/healing and abilities to add to your shield up to 30hp]
  • [+1 to Attack Dueling die]
  • [+1 to Mod damage/healing on basic attacks and abilities]

  Forged within the lost arcane forge of Zin-Zalai millennia ago, the sword known as Dal’Endal was created for Prince Ulthoril, a highborne favored by Queen Azshara herself. Meaning Breath of Stars in the elven tongue, it was said the sword was imbued with the magic of the stars and of the cosmos itself. Though perhaps an exaggeration, it nevertheless boasts a surprisingly powerful enchantment of warding that draws strength with each blow. Some would say that the sword itself hungers for warfare…

The sword was finished during the War of the Ancients and gifted to Ulthoril. Unfortunately, the highborne Prince fought at the side of his queen, who had allied herself with a terrible and vast army known as the Burning Legion. Ulthoril reaped a bitter harvest in the name of his queen, before he was struck down by an elven lord of the house of Valewind. The lord of Valewind, a man named Persephron, took up the sword for a much nobler cause.

In the aftermath of the Legion’s invasion, Persephron took the sword with him across the sea, in the banishment of the Highborne. He died amidst the fledgling kingdom of Quel’thalas, giving his life for the rising nation. It was King Dath’remar who took the blade, storing it within the vaults of Silvermoon to be used by the greatest of heroes in times of need.

It was during the Troll Wars that the sword Dal’endal found a new, permanent owner. As thanks for the service of House Indaris, a family that traced their legacy as one of the more powerful Highborne houses of old, the sword was gifted unto its patriarch Lord Alaran. Now the blade serves the Lord of Indaris, whomever they be. The young Aurelian has taken up the blade in recent years, believing it his right as heir to the throne of Indaris. 

With this sword, the blood of Indaris shall serve the faith of Quel’thalas as its guardian and protector. This I swear forever more.” - Lord Alaran Indaris

Jai’Belore, Shaft of Sunlight

[Mystic Dagger]

[Spirit Leech: Roll 1d5 after basic attacks/healing and abilities to add to your shield up to 30hp]
[+1 to Mod damage/healing on basic attacks and abilities]
[+2 to Max damage/healing on basic attacks and abilities]

Given to her by Ranger-Captain Vaelrin Firestorm during the Winter of Woe, the dagger has seldom left her side, serving as a reminder of her lessons from Oosaarn Bloodaxe, and the reasons she needed to make sure she always returned. It has served her well, both to protect herself and to end the lives of those who would harm her and her own.

Recently, she has sought out the help of others from the Guard to reinforce the weapon, strengthening the core and adding a magical focus to better augment her abilities. In the end, it has become much more than a simple weapon or a memento, becoming the embodiment of both what she fights for and what keeps her going.

@forever-afk and @cynfuldax for mentions!

Thank you so much @stormandozone for drawing this wonderful wonderful art for me, please go check out her art and designs because they are spot on!

I cast mini-nuke

So I underestimated how powerful the fireball spell is in 5th ed. My players are at 3rd level and got a scroll of cast fireball two encounters back. They are facing 6 orcs, one boss orc at 30hp and one ogre at 63 hp.

The wizard on the first turn (a surprise round) incinerated five orcs outright and left the boss at 6 hp. I was livid.

Me: “This is the D&D equivalent of a mini-nuke.”

Paladin: “Blame the fireball man not us!”
