The Savage Tide
bastard sword with the suns fire
This sword is the size of a bastard sword. However, a
sun blade is wielded as if it were a short sword with respect to weight
and ease of use. (In other words, the weapon appears to all viewers
to be a bastard sword, and deals bastard sword damage, but the
wielder feels and reacts as if the weapon were a short sword.) Any
individual able to use either a bastard sword or a short sword with
proficiency is proficient in the use of a sun blade. Likewise, Weapon
Focus and Weapon Specialization in short sword and bastard sword
apply equally, but the benefits of those feats do not stack.
In normal combat, the glowing golden blade of the weapon is
equal to a +2 bastard sword. Against evil creatures, its enhancement
bonus is +4. Against Negative Energy Plane creatures or undead
creatures, the sword deals double damage (and ×3 on a critical hit
instead of the usual ×2).
The blade also has a special sunlight power. Once per day, the
wielder can swing the blade vigorously above her head while
speaking a command word. The sun blade then sheds a bright yellow
radiance that is like full daylight. The radiance begins shining in a
10-foot radius around the sword wielder and extends outward at 5
feet per round for 10 rounds thereafter, to create a globe of light
with a 60-foot radius. When the wielder stops swinging, the radi-
ance fades to a dim glow that persists for another minute before
disappearing entirely. All sun blades are of good alignment, and any
evil creature attempting to wield one gains one negative level. The
negative level remains as long as the sword is in hand and disap-
pears when the sword is no longer wielded. This negative level
never results in actual level loss, but it cannot be overcome in any
way (including restoration spells) while the sword is wielded.
Where it was before this is unknown, but Ra guided it to my hand and I will use it to smite his foes.
I picked it up off my brothers dead body he lay there in the abyss and I could still see the fire swirling around the blade as tears weld up in my eyes I feel a strong connection to the blade and wont part with it
