Flames of War
Blade of the Mage Lords
The blade is simple in design but beautiful in construction, the blade’s handle is made of white gold, unadorned save for a few line etchings. A carved emerald adorns the pommel, tiny gems lay stitched between the overlapping layers of blue leather covering the handle. The blade itself is made of Cold-Iron that looks nondescript, unless held at an angle revealing arcane runes etched along the blade.
