Dymondheart is a longsword shaped from a single piece of darkly oiled and gleaming wood. The
grain runs with the length of the blade, and the wood is vibrant, as if still living.
The storied blade Dymondheart was long ago wielded by an elf hunter named Elowyn.
Reveling in its living nature, Elowyn used the magic of the sword against the machinations
of a servitor of decay referred to as the Rotting Man. Even without extensive knowledge of
the longsword’s true capabilities, Elowyn was able to call on a few powers to aid her when
she was nearly bested by a demon from the Abyss. (Purification of the Tree.)
Dymondheart was a gift given to Elowyn by an elf lord known as the Nentyarch. That title
is assumed by the greatest living druid in the great forests to the east, and many elf druids
have held it over the centuries. An ancient Nentyarch wielded the longsword
himself when he was younger, having secured it from the tombs of a fallen city called
Dun-Tharos, once inhabited by those who trafficked with demons. Only the vigilance of an
unbroken string of Nentyarchs has kept these ruins quiescent under a living boundary of trees.
A journey down past the roots of the sentinel trees into the tombs required vast daring, and the
Nent yarch’s reward was great—he reclaimed Dymondheart, a sword once wielded by those
of his order in the distant past. Reclaiming the weapon was not easy. Guardians with fell
power beset the Nentyarch, and he barely escaped with his life. (Rite of Passage.)
