Balthazar, The Bladebound


Appearing to be but a simple decorated greatsword. The steel needing a bit of a polish. But the edge keen and a large emerald set into the cross guard. The blade is actually a wizard caught in a powerful curse, unable to free himself, but capable of thoughtspeech after attuning to a wielder. He may even cast some spells while in combat to help out.

Appearing to be but a simple decorated greatsword. The steel needing a bit of a polish. But the edge keen and a large emerald set into the cross guard. If inspected, a PC would find out that the blade is magical. After some time though, the wielder will start to hear a deep male voice in their head.

Balthazar tends to think aloud, his observations can be quite useful. Ever the pragmatist, his objective opinions are (thankfully) only heard by those attuned to him. His cursed exile has worn greatly on his manners, so he isn't all that polite.


For all intents and purposes, Balthazar is a sentient object as well as weapon and is indestructible. Despite this, he grumbles and gets upset at those that use him recklessly. Also, Balthazar is a capable spellcaster, willing to aid the heroes so long as they are respectul.


"You call yourself a hero? They must have lowered the standards since my days."

"Please don't throw me again, it's quite rude."

The Bladebound may very well be a great way to suggest certain courses of action and provide the players feedback and lore.

For this classic idea to work and find new life in this submission I think you need to give us Bathlazar as a full character.

When the campfires grow dim, stories are told. Stories of lost cities, great heroes and legends of old. One of these is the story of Knurlheim. Once the proud capital of the Dwarfs, now a ruin- abandoned long ago. Filled with vast riches and treasure. It’s secrets forgotten with the decline of the Dwarfs, long ago. No one knows is certain if it ever exsisted at all.
