Chilled! You can see how we all want this to live up to its true potential! Enough with building the suspense; grasp the hilt and pull this sword from its stone!
You've revised it a bit already, but looking at it, I would like to see a little bit more information added:
Why did the renowned High Elven smiths of Verasialles (I'm not fond of the name either) craft this weapon using the rare metal Morthile? What is special about this metal that it is so valuable?
What did the Elven champion that first wielded "Chill" call his unique fighting style? What was unusual about this style? Was he from the village, or do champions from distant lands quest to find the hidden village of the masterful elven smiths, there to petition the smiths that they might have a weapon crafted?
What kind of sword is it? I picture the sword as a longsword with a narrow, lightweight blade, constantly encrusted with frost. Beneath the covering layer of frost, an inlay of elven script can barely be distinguished, delicate letters running along the blade's fullers. Its silver hilt forms a protective guard that curves down to protect the fingers.
When wielded, what is the sword like? I don't mean game effects, you have that down. I mean, what does it look like to someone watching it? What does it feel like to be struck with it or to wield it? Go to Comment
As the PCs cross a brigde/tree over a deep river they see the glimmer of gold and jewels lying at the bottom. At further inspection they notice that it is the skeleton of a man still holding on to a sack of treasure. Will the PCs try to dive to get it? What killed the man? Did he simly not let go of the bag he could not swim to the surface with? What cleansed his bones so? Are there flesh-eating beings that dwell in the deep? Can the players resist the chanse of being wealthy for once?
