The blade called Briar is an intelligent +5 cold iron vorpal bastard sword whose special purpose is to defeat denizens of the Fey World.


If Briar is claimed by a nymph—of whom it is fundamentally a part—the blade gradually begins rejoining with the fey queen. If left in the nymph’s possession, Briar fades out of existence over the course of a week. At the end of this time, the weapon is destroyed and the nymph regains her ability to love. Only a fey lord can restore Briar once a nymph has reclaimed it.
