Over a millenia ago, Evelyn Nightrazor was a young woman, the princess of a the elven nation of Three Cataracts. Her father, Arnavran, wielded the moonblade Nightrazor, an artifact longsword blessed by the elven gods to choose the best king or queen for Three Cataracts and lend them great power with which to defend their land.
When repeated drow invasions at last sent the people of Three Cataracts fleeing through the ancient gates, Arnavran stayed behind. Evelyn's last view of her father was of him dancing between three drow weapon masters and the coils of a snake whip, singing a war hymn as he bought with his blood the time for his people to flee to safety.
For over a thousand years, Evelyn has sought sign of what became of Night Razor.
For a century, she has groomed her grandchild to leave the sanctuary of Evermeet, seek out Night Razor, and use it's power to make a new home for their people on the continent of Faerun.
And so here you are, honed by an almost obsessive woman into the perfect candidate to reclaim your birthright. With just a few powerful friends, you prepare to leave the idyllic isle that was the only home you ever knew, on a quest for a mighty sword that has been lost for a thousand years...
And if the sword does not think you are worthy when you find it? It will strike you down with lighting rather than allow an unworthy one to wield the sword of the king!
