Pathfinder: Legacy of Fire
Tempest, Sword of Wind and Lightning
Tempest is a legendary scimitar made from an unknown greenish-blue metal. The hilt has no crossguard and has obviously been broken at some point and is held together by a tightly wrapped shagreen and stringy redish mold. When the wielder holds the hilt the mold comes alive and wraps itself around the wielder’s hand. Anyone who bonds with Tempest becomes infected by the mold, which is apparent from red tendrils that cover their hands and forearms. Bonding with the sword in this way allows the bearer to become empathically linked with Vardishal, the genie spirit that is bound to the sword.
When looking at Tempest you can see turbulent storm clouds in the reflection on the blade’s metal. Also during combat electrical arcs dance across the weapon’s blade.
