Radiance (Major Artifact)

Aura strong abjuration; CL 20th; Slot none; Price —; Weight 4 lbs.


When handled by a paladin, the blade glows with golden light and functions as a +1 cold iron longsword that radiates light as a torch on command. The weapon shifts and changes its form to match the paladin’s deity’s favored weapon (in the hands of a paladin who doesn’t worship a deity, the weapon remains a +1 longsword).

In addition, Radiance is a legendary item that bonds with a mythic paladin a s soon as it is wielded in certain combats. The weapon has two daily uses of legendary power that recharge each day, but does not currently possess any legendary attributes, for it has yet to be wielded by a mythic paladin. As Radiance has its own ability to grow in power, it cannot be given the upgradable legendary item ability.


A paladin must knowingly slay an angel with the blade, at which point the sword can be destroyed normally with damage.
