CINNEROTH, The Dark Sword
This is a black, evil weapon. But its
purpose is to destroy evil. It was created based on the concept of
Evil always falls in upon itself. The weapon speaks and is
telepathic. It can read magic and has the further powers of
Invigoration, and Animation of self. Cinneroth drains
magic from living creatures and can often absorb raw, wild magic.
Other powers are unknown and seem to change at the whim of
Cinneroth. He seems to have whatever powers he wants to
have. It is unknown how the sword "came to life," and became
sentient. The source of his personality is likewise unknown.
Cinneroth claims he exists because he wishes to exist. Research by
Thumedan of Silvergate revealed a possible tie between the sword and the
Tower of Magic. Cinneroth is reputed to have a very powerful
personality. His first wielder was forced to commit suicide by a
telepathic command from the sword. Cinneroth is reputed to have
killed seven of his 21 owners. It is a chaotic sword made of unknown
material. It is naturally a +3 sword, but Cinneroth can change that
at will. He can even change the type of sword that he is.
Together with Noldolante, the Silver Sword, Cinneroth can unravel the
Cinneroth's weaknesses include an inability to harm any paladin. He passes through paladins as if they were incorporeal. Cinneroth is powerless when immersed in salt water. His current location is unknown. Gwydion the wolf paladin slew Cinneroth's last owner (Xanath Darksword) and buried Cinneroth in a coffin filled with saltwater in an undisclosed location. Rumors continue to persist that Cinneroth's last act before being plunged into the brine was to save Xanath's life. These rumors are given further credence by sightings of a reclusive drow living quietly among the Cahoki horsemen on the fringes of the Unknown Lands that reportedly matches Xanath's description.
