Danivall’s Starblades: These ten magical longswords were created by the leaders of the church of Danivall, an old deity of starlight and perseverance, for use by an order of paladins sponsored by the church. The order, called the Star Guardians, quested on behalf of the temples of Danivall and defended his priests and sacred locales. One by one the Star Guardians fell in battle with great evil, and their weapons were lost. From time to time one is found by some dungeon delver, although their history and status is unknown to most, for Danivall faded from mankind’s memory after an extended battle with Hov, the Demon of Night.

All ten blades are superficially similar, fine longswords of pale steel and guards of similar metal tightly wrapped in night-blue leather. On each blade near the crossguard is the symbol of the order, ten small stars in a circle beneath a single larger star. The blades shed light when drawn, a pale silvery radiance that is as strong as a torch but never so bright as to harm the eyes of even the most sensitive viewer. When observed under true starlight, the name of the sword becomes visible in the Celestial tongue along the blade, seemingly carved into the metal’s surface but unable to be felt by touch, in starlight or not.

Each sword has different powers. Although they were all crafted at the same time and at approximately the same level of power, some of the blades have been improved by their paladin wielders or by successive owners. One ability they all have in common is that when a creature grasps one of the swords by the hilt, he immediately knows all of the powers of the weapon and how to activate them. The swords are not intelligent and have no other ability to communicate in this manner.
