Artifacts

During you childhood, you heard many rumors of unique weapons of great or terrible deeds, here are some that you remember…

Phial of Galadriel

A small crystal phial containing the light of Earendil’s Star. Its light is imperishable, and near it darkness cannot endure.

Phial of Undeath

It appears like the Phial of Galadriel at first – but wait! It is a cursed phial created by an evil wizard to lure adventurers into wielding it unknowingly.

Star of Elendil

The shining Star of the North, a treasured heirloom of Elendil’s house.

Arkenstone of Thrain

A great globe seemingly filled with moonlight, the famed Heart of the Mountain. It splinters the light that falls upon it into ten thousand sparks of white radiance shot with glints of the rainbow.

Swords and Daggers

‘Angrist’

Forged by Telchar, greatest of Dwarven smiths, and used by Beren to gouge a Silmaril out of Morgoth’s crown, this long chopping dagger slices through ordinary metal as easily as its name, “Iron Cleaver”, suggests.

Instead of a blade, a flame seems to emerge from this dagger’s hilt.

‘Nimthanc’

From the hilt of this dagger springs not so much a blade as an icicle.

A frosty dagger wreathed in a nimbus of ice with a hilt of elk horn and an edge to wound the wind.

Azaghal, Dwarf-king of Beregost, fell before Glaurung in the Battle of Unnumbered Tears. With his final breath, Azaghal plunged this blade into Glaurung’s belly with such a blow that the Father of Dragons fled the field with all his kin, and was at first believed to be mortally wounded.

A stubby blade worn by Beren, whose horn sounded of old in the glades of Brethil.
