Sword of Huran

By:

The Sword of Huran is the chosen weapon of The Order of the Spellswords. Each one of them crafts their own Sword of Huran to serve them in their battles for the king.

Sword of Huran

A Sword of Huran can look like almost any blade, as each is crafted by the mage that will use it. It is typically a stubby-looking gladius , with a a steel crescent attached to the end of the hilt. When properly charged, the sword takes on a silvery glow. Which marks it as something special and certainly magical.

Dren's Story

After Huran died, he handed his armor to the man who was his best friend and, some whisper, lover. Another knight, by the name of Dren, who served alongside Huran.

He quietly spoke these words, upon his death bed: “Give this only to one that is worthy, one that will use it well and not abuse the gift. If any is not worthy may they be struck down by the hand of nature when they need the armors protection the most.” Dren vowed to do so, and set off in search of such a worthy being. He travelled far and wide, in search of the worthy one that Huran spoke of.

In Dren's journey, he found himself making friends everywhere he went. And, thought he was old and retired, he helped the good people of the world fight back the forces of the night. Always carrying the armor, for he was secretly loathe to let it go.

When the time came to fight the evil magician, Hek, Dren finally decided to don the armor himself, and to fight Hek to the death. A epic battle ensued in the middle of a small town, Hek flinging spell after spell at Dren, and Dren, in turn, launching them from his sword thanks to the power of the armor.

Dren eventually downed the evil magician, but he fled in terror of the sword that reflected all of his spells. Dren then fell to the ground and said "I am glad... I could be worthy... of your-" The last word faded into silence and none can recall what it was. But a great monument was erected to Dren and Huran in the village square. Huran was said to be a brave and noble knight who gifted Dren the strength to push back the evil wizard with a magical sword.

The Conclusion

Huran's Sword is a name that Mages of The Spellsword give to their weapons, in honor of that bold knight. Sometimes they enchant it with the same simple properties as the armor, as to better defend themselves against rivals.

None now know what has become of the Armor of Huran. It is believed to be buried beneath the statue in the Tomb of Dren. After the battle, many children were name Dren, and a few after Huran. Eventually, another named Dren would finally kill the evil magician Hek. With a powerful sword of anti-magic.

I'm confused on a number of points.  is it the armor or the sword that was magical?  The sword got its magic from the armor? If Horan bequeathed Dren his armor, then why is it the sword of horan, and not the Armor of Horan?  After he downed Hek, Dren then fled?  Why was Dren after Hek?

I think this could use a little cleaning up; I'm gonna wait to vote on this...

I am just assuming that the sword is thus named in honor of one of their first noble nights that did great deeds. More of an homage to a great warrior vs. it requiring certain magic. The armor, being a true piece of equipment, albeit lost, seems to simply remain a legend and perhaps they feel it would be slightly blasphemous or in bad taste to name their own armor after a true set.

Just brainstorming a little about it. More about continuing to grow the legend of Huran and sprout out the idea. I might be a little biased about it too. ;)

We get a good idea of the history that person that implemented the the use of the Sword of Huran among the Spellsword Mages wanted to invoke, but we get nothing else.  This another item right up that isn't about the item.

This is almost a Cultural element rather than an item itself, given the varied forms the Sword can have.

A continent is home to large, leathery flying beasts with a wingspan of over 70ft. Though shy, herbivorous and easily scared, it is possible that an enterprising person could domesticate them. They would be useless in war due to their timidity, but excellent if used for commercial air travel.
