This +7 called greater transformative metalline vorpal holy longsword was constructed long ago by an ancient hero and paladin king, Ahman Bloodstone, to defeat mythic evil creatures, especially those that might disrupt the great balance and bring eternal darkness into the world for centuries to come. It was Ahman Bloodstone who would found a goodly kingdom that would one day rise to become the greatest Empire the world has ever known. Lightbringer was then passed down through the Bloodstone line until it was lost, and remained so for a few millennia. 

Lightbringer bypasses all types of damage reduction, and deals an additional 3d6 points of damage to mythic evil creatures and to non-mythic evil creatures that have mythic DR. This additional damage is multiplied for critical hits. 

Lightbringer possesses an eternal bond (see Legendary Items in the Pathfinder RPG’s Mythic Adventures), linked to any who are of the lineage of the former paladin king, Ahman Bloodstone. If the wielder should ever become unworthy, Lightbringer will vanish, and seek for another worthy to wield it. 


Basic Abilities legendary power (8/day), legendary surge (+1d20; attack and combat maneuver rolls), mythic bond.
Abilities eternal bond (bloodline of Ahman Bloodstone), flexible bond, foe-biter, powerful (x3), rejuvenating, returning, 
unstoppable, strike, unyielding.


Greater Transformative 

In addition to functioning as the normal transformative special weapon property, Lightbringer’s shape can be altered at its wielder's command to become a melee weapon of the same type as its original weapon type at the time of construction. For example, a Medium transformative longsword can take the shape of any other Medium sword, such as a Medium short sword, Medium scimitar, or a Medium greatsword.


The wielder of Lightbringer can alter the composition of a metalline weapon from one kind of metal to another as a standard action. For instance, a metalline bastard sword can become an adamantine bastard sword or an iron bastard sword.


The method of destruction of this weapon is unknown. 


While lost for many millennia, it was prior to what would be known as the Off-Worlder War that the sword once again found its way into the hands of a paladin and true hero able to wield it with honor. As destiny or the gods had designed, the sword was retrieved from an ancient treasure horde of goodly artifacts by the paladin hero of the Off-Worlder War, Odorian Lightbringer, and his companions. As fate would have it, Odorian was of the true lineage of Ahman Bloodstone himself, the family having taken the surname Lightbringer in honor of the ancient sword wielded by their illustrious ancestor. It was in the hands of Odorian Lightbringer that the sword regained its legendary status, as he wielded it against the evil forces hell bent of driving the world into complete darkness. For many years, Odorian continued to wield the sword Lightbringer until it was believed he perished while in the planes of the Nine Hells. 

However, he did not perish but continues to live to this day, and maintains complete mastery over the sword Lightbringer. Thus, Odorian allows the sword to roam the world of its own free will, seeking those who will wield it with great fervor in the name of righteousness and all that is good and just. Only those who are worthy may wield this weapon as it once was, in the name of goodness and truth.
