Alternate Earth Campaign
Prince Thrommel's Sword
Ancient Tuathan/Vaniir sword
This is a seemingly celtic/norse bastard sword made of some metal far stronger and lighter than steel. It is very fast and has been known to cut through armor and shields with ease.
In Irish mythology, Fragarach, known as ‘The Answerer’ or ‘The Retaliator’, was the sword of Manannan mac Lir and later, Lugh Lamfada.
Forged by the gods, Manannan wielded it as his weapon before passing it on to Lugh (his foster son). It was given to Cúchulainn by Lugh, and later to Conn of the Hundred Battles.
It was said that no one could tell a lie with Fragarach at his or her throat, thus the name ‘Answerer’. It was also said to place the wind at the user’s command and could cut through any shield or wall, and had a piercing wound from which no man could recover.

It is not generally known where this blade came from, only that Prince Thrommel began using it in the middle of the war with the temple and that it was believed to have been instrumental in turning the tide.
