Return of the Hydra: prologue
This powerful sword was gift of the goddess Cythaerea to Heliostratos, one of her four mortal champions. The blade can only be used by those pure of heart and is particulary harmful to undead creatures and those evil of heart. Although its full powers only awaken when wielded by a true follower of Cythaerea, even in its dormant state it is considered a formidable weapon by anyone’s standards.
Centuries ago, the Sun Blade fell into the hands of the Lich Archapaton, who hid it in the Catacombs. After so many years without sunlight, much of the blade’s power has faded and it is now bound to Hydra Peninsula and can no longer leave the island.
