Sword of Chaos
The party was originally contracted to see a shipment of magical items safely to a neighboring town for identification. On this shipment was the Sword of Chaos. It is rumored that this sword, when combined with its twin, creates the sword that is spoken of in legend that was created by the Twilight Warrior for her unborn child. This sword, in the hands of the Pale Child, is said to bring destruction to the world and unmake the gods’ works.
Even alone, and in another’s hands, however, this sword holds extraordinary power. Thus, it is sought by evil-doers of all sorts, and has, in the past, caused much chaos to the land. However, it cannot be wielded by anyone with the “chaotic” alignment aside from the child it was made for, which has prevented any major catastrophes from occurring.
