| The Righteous Arm of Justice: This +2
lawful longsword is made of gray steel and engraved with a regular
pattern of squares along the length of the blade on both sides. The axis
of the crossguard is darker steel, with the guards themselves light steel
inlaid with a simple angular geometric pattern in gold. The hilt is wrapped
in the tanned hide of a blue dragon, and the pommel bears a fixed steel ring,
normally used to hang the sword for display.
This weapon is old and its creator is unknown, although it has been used by several famous heroes of Tyr's faith, including Fyrrian Spellstar of Hlondath (died approx. 327 DR), Drun Ironguard the Drannoran Exile (died estimated 700 DR), and Talisk Greenshield of Waterdeep (died 1235 DR). After Talisk's death the sword disappeared and has not been seen since, although it is rumored that a half-orc in the North has either been searching for or has found the weapon.
In addition to its primary properties, The Righteous Arm has the ability to cast an order's wrath spell once per day. This spell can only be invoked upon a non-lawful being that the sword is striking (in the manner of a spell storing weapon, although spell storing weapons can normally only release targeted spells in this manner). The effect of the order's wrath is centered on the target of the attack but fills the normal area of the spell (a burst filling a 30-ft. cube), and may affect the wielder of The Righteous Arm if he or she is not lawful. The sword sheds blue light when drawn.
