Sword Bearer

Not all Artifacts of the Lost Race have been hidden or are in the hands of the Nightlords. A few have been scattered on Earth or in remote areas of the Nightlands. Most of them are in the unsuspecting hands of archaeologists or museums or gather dust in undiscovered ruins. Some of the greatest and strongest Artifacts have a will and a purpose of their own. They do not need to be found. Instead, their magical powers enable them to search for suitable allies. Most Artifacts were powerful weapons that were devised by the Lost Race during their doomed war against the Dark. Sensing that the Nightlords are new agents and pawns of the Dark, these Artifacts wish to join in the efforts to destroy them. To do this, they need someone who will use them in battle. These chosen people are called the Sword Bearers.
