Alatáriel is a powerful holy sword created for my Etheria campaign. It is wielded by the Duchess of Calindor, who is a Swordmaster by class. Only a true swordmaster can bring the best out of the sword and it has been passed down in her family for many generations. (And yes, the image is a sword from LOTR.)
Been making use of the excellent formatting tool at http://homebrewery.naturalcrit.com to make some almost official looking home-brew content for my Etheria campaign. This mini-glossary of magical terms was created in order to give a Sorcerer, played by one of my players, a bit more substance, detail and reason for their powers. When world-building, I like to think stuff like magic through and have reasons for why things happen. Let me know what you think and whether there is anything interesting in here.
