Shortly before the age of Darkness which heralded the Starstone’s decent onto Golarion, the lands of Golarian and the first world were more closely tied.
The lords of the First World were in constant conflict. The Fey Lord Haldavàr Amras Orodeth Tinethelë, Master of the Ice Spire waged a bloody war against Kenvi’ara, Queen of the Shimmering Sands. The war lasted a generation, with the Master of the Ice Spire leading an assault on Kenvi’ara’s Desert Palace. Haldavàr plunged his Moonsilver Sword into the heart of the Desert Queen, and with her last breath Kenvi’ara placed her death curse upon The Ice Lord, trapping his spirit within the very placed that pierced her heart.
Now the sword has changed hands though the mists of time, it’s power growing and receding with the deeds of its wielder. It has a lust for the blood of powerful beings demigods, outsiders, and powerful magic users.
