Chrysamere, also known as the Paladin's Blade and Sword of Heroes, is an ancient claymore artifact with offensive capabilities only surpassed by its defenses.[1] It has magical properties which, unlike most weapons, are defensive in nature; it lends the wielder health, boosts their resistance to fire, and reflects some damage from spells.[1]

In 3E 405, an agent of the Blades obtained Chrysamere, but the circumstances are unknown.[2] In 3E 427 the Imperial Legion tasked the Nerevarine with recovering Chrysamere and the Lord's Mail from some thieves. The Mail was in the possession of an expelled member of the Legion, while the sword was in the possession of Draramu Hloran, a powerful sorceress found in the Abanabi Cave near Sadrith Mora. The Nerevarine dealt with the thieves and returned the artifacts to their former owners.[3]

Some time after this, Chrysamere came into the possession of the Lost Paladin, who died wielding the sword at Forelhost. The Lost Paladin's ghost was killed there in 4E 201 by the Last Dragonborn, who took Chrysamere for personal use.[4]
