The Lost Plane
Ashryel’s War Sword Ascalon acts as a focus for magic, making Ashryel’s castings far more potent than they would normally be. Spells that use the blade as a focus can break most barriers and enchantments with ease.
The Sword is a Hand-and-a-half hilt with a red blade so dark it appears to be black. Runes run along the sword’s blood groove.
Forged by the Black Mage Vrayne, Ascalon is fueled by enchantments placed there by his apprentice Ashryel. Ashryel attacked, defeated and sacrificed Vrayne during a solar eclipse and used his former master’s soul to power the two mighty enchantments he laid upon his sword and dagger.
