The Last Blades
Shadestyl, The Shadow’s Touch, is a weapon containing the power of Nesheriim the Sly, a Shadeth Demon Lord. When the party found it it took the form of a simple black iron longsword. After bonding with Kherze it took the form most pleasing to him, that of a great axe.
When the Last Blades were slain by Thurkesh, Kherze’s body, along with Shadestyl, disappeared. It turns out the weapon was taken by Thurkesh and gifted to a Shadeth Demon ally of his in a plot to take over Crisenza for the Thantil Ascendancy. The Last Blades, having been resurrected, uncovered the plot, slaying the demon.
Once again Shadestyl has come into their possession, this time being wielded by Jaard Craagmantle, who, like Kherze before him, prefers it in the form of a great axe.
