Greatest DnD Sword Of All Time?
What is the greatest Dungeons and Dragons magical sword of all time? Three classic DnD magical swords are hidden amongst the treasure and equipment cards above, and those three represent some of my all-time favorites. Truesteel, a Magic Realm stand-in for Excalibur, gets prominently featured at the centre of the image, but the other magical DnD swords are lurking nearby.
The above picture reveals just a sample of the equipment and treasure cards that I printed, when I was working on my resource card project several years ago. Each card is roughly 1" x 1 1/4", a card size I have since decided is too small to accomplish the task of both communicating the look and use of each item.
I prefer the named magical DnD swords over the generically powered magical swords. The vorpal sword and sword of sharpness were both cool, but the fact that they were a class of sword made them feel less unique. I suppose you could have ruled that Vorpal and Sharpness were their names, thus solving that problem.
What is the greatest magical DnD sword, and why? Bonus points if you can find Sharpness in the image above.
