Malthindor, Oblivion's Blade
A black metal blade, capped with a pommel of etherstone
Malthindor is a masterwork longsword, and has additional powers for a user attuned to its use.
Attuning a new user to the blade takes 24 hours.
Legacy of the Mage-priests:
Malthindor does not detect as magic, but does detect faintly of evil. While not enchanted itself, Malthindor is not impeded by DR/magic. As Malthindor is itself extra-planar, it has full effect vs. incorporeal creatures. The sword may not be the target of spells, for good or ill.
Malthindor is extremely sharp, and cuts through lesser metals with ease.
Sworn to the cause:
Malthindor grants the wielder a +2 circumstance bonus on saving throws vs. magic.
In addition, unless the wielder is a member of the Cult of Yagrax, the wielder’s Spell Failure increases by 10%.
Malthindor grants the wielder Spell Resistance 15 while the sword is in his/her possession.
Agent of Oblivion:
Malthindor grants the bearer the ability to reroll a failed saving throw against a spell or spell-like ability, three times a day.

In addition, the wielder’s Spell Failure increases by 20%.
None shall stay my hand…

Malthindor’s special purpose is revealed to the user.
Forged by the Mage-priests of Azlant, this was the sword of their leader, Yagrax. Made from a dark, unreflective metal, Malthindor is a long, narrow blade that tapers gradually to a point. When brought near magical light, strange grey runes appear even as the light dims, almost as if the magic was being absorbed.
The crosspiece is made of the same black metal, curving in toward the hilt at the ends. The grip is not bound in any kind of leather, instead two sets of parallel lines have been etched into its surface. A faceted green etherstone adorns the pommel, Set inside a cold iron ring.
