  3. Naur’felo

    The sun was rising slowly, breaking through the shadows of the night and beginning to warm with its gentle touch. Darshadric did not have the time nor the interest for daily activities such as having breakfast or attending to the wahsroom. The young apprentice opened the book at the page where he left 4 hours before, after falling asleep in the library.
    "...the mightiest of them, the fearsome Firelord, Ragnaros, aligned himself with Deathwing, the Black Dragon, and Al'Akir the Windlord to fullfill the ancient Prophecy of the Hour of Twilight. He tried to destroy the World Tree, but thanks to the efforts of the Cenarion Circle and many mortal heroes of the Horde and the Alliance he was finally defeated and slayed. Though the Essence of the Fire is part of the world itself, and Ragnaros was made of the very primordial force of the creation, it can not be destroyed. His Core, the Hearth of Fire, was reclaimed for Kalecgos, the former Aspect of Magic, and it is conserved within the mages of The Kirin Tor for study purposes."
    _So it's true! -exclaimed the exhausted boy- Naur’felo is kept here!
    The young apprentice looked in the direction the voice came of, and discovered his owner, Archmage Praethenon. The guardian of the library was furious, because Darshadric, as a novice in the Kirin Tor, was not allowed in that section of the library.
    _I…I was…
    Darshadric closed his tired eyes and took a long breath before answering.
    _I am sorry, Archmage. I know my presence here is not permitted, but I had to know. After all, as the Great Antonidas used to say, "curiosity is the most powerful and dangerous attribute of a mage".
    Praethenon couldn't avoid showing a half smile after the double-meaning phrase.
    _Darshadric, let me be honest with you. You don't study for your exams and you sleep in many of your classes. Still, you manage to pass the exams and there's no doubt you are a good promise as a future mage. So tell me, why take the risk of being banished from the Kirin Tor? You know there is dark material in this section, that is why students are not allowed here. What were you reading?
    Darschadric shows him the book in the page he was reading.
    _Naur’felo? Is that all about? What do you want with the Hearth of Fire?
    _That's why I don't pay attention in class, Archmage. Difficult times are coming, and the only school of magic I'm interested in is the one I find the most useful at war times, the Fire school. The sorcerer who can bend the hearth of the Firelord to his will would have the power to burn down all his enemies.
    Praethenon couldn't believe what he was hearing. A boy speaking of taking the core of an Elemental Lord and using it against his enemies.
    _That’s it, get out of here before I change my mind and speak to the Council of this!
    _But Archmage…
    Darshadric took his books and went to his classes. But he didn’t know that Praethenon would actually speak to the Council of the Six about his idea.
    _It is impossible, no mortal can expect to carry Naur’felo and survive. -said Kalecgos-. I barely can keep it at the special room where now lies.
    _We don’t fully understand the Hearth of Fire, and he’s just a boy! -intervene Archmage Modera-.
    _Well, a boy who has spent his entire youth learning and practicing the Fire school, -argued Archmage Karlain- while none of us had mastered it, I said we give him a try.
    _You can’t be serious, he’ll die! -exclaimed Modera- Please Khadgar, tell me you are not considering this.
    _I actually am -said the leader of The Six- our time is running out, Naur’felo has been here for how long? How many years after the Battle of the Firelands, and still no progress? We need answers, and Darshadric could be one. End of discussion, we will all be there, and protect the boy if things go wrong.
    The day after
    Darshadric and the Archmages of the High Council were heading to the room where Naur’felo was kept. The apprentice was terrified, everything happened too fast. But he will not let his feelings go out of control, it was his moment. As they entered the secret room, a wave of heat knocked them all to the floor, the temperature was incredibly hot.
    _Make a shield around him. -ordered Khadgar- Go on, Darschadric, we wait here. Do not get out of the shield or you will burn.
    Darschadric walked into the centre of the room. There it was, Naur’felo. The sphere of fire was so brilliant that he had to close his eyes to get near of it. Darschadric emptied his mind and focused on everything he knew about the magic of elements. With his mind disciplined, he tried to bend the Core to his will. He got rejected, falling on his knies. “Fire also means reborn, purification” thought him, and he understood what it needed to be done. No mortal could wield such a power, so he should die first. He broke the shield and let himself being absorved by the fire, his skin starting to melt as the transformation began. He felt the elemental energies passing into his soul, now forever bended to Fire. The Archmages of the Council were ready to destroy the entity.
    _TELL US WHO YOU ARE OR DIE! -exclaimed Khadgar-.
    _It’s me, Archmage, Darshadric -said the boy, his eyes two blazing depths to the abyss- the Bringer of Fire.

  4. Zulfiqar

    Swords were the perennial symbol of empires, knighthood, chivalry, and fantasy. They were also one of the world’s most ancient weapons, which were used in wars. Arabs were not the first to do so, but their level of skill in using the sword in wars was considered exceptionally marvelous. Even the bravery of tribes was judged on the basis of their efficiency in swordsmanship.

    Hazrat Ali was a notable swordsman whose skills are still being remembered.
    Zulfiqar is the legendary sword with which Hazrat Ali was blessed by Hazrat Muhammad PBUH during a war. Here are more facts about Zulfiqar.

    Zulfiqar is an arabic word which means “cleaver of spine”. It was the only sword of that time which had double edges.
    “No Man Is Like Ali And No Sword Is Like Zulfiqar”

  5. Kael'thar, the Cursed Axe of Diseases

    Kael'thar, the Cursed Axe of Diseases

    Kael'thar is believed to be forged in Orgrimmar originally for undead General Putress. The weapon would have given him
    unprecedented strength and power. And so it happened... For many years, thanks to Kael'thar, General Putress managed to win even extremely hopeless battles. The weapon began to sow fear throughout Azeroth, and Putress himself was considered as one of the most influential and of course most powerful Horde leaders. This made him achieve the Grand Apothecary title. Unfortunately, more power made him think irrationally...
    Everything changed during the Battle of Angrathar the Wrathgate, where the Grand Apothecary Putress and his forces
    betrayed the Horde. After unleashing the New Plague on the gathered forces of Bolvar Fordragon and Dranosh Saurfang he made Lich King to retreat. Lord of the Scourge was so scared of Putress power that at the last moment, he casted an irreversible curse on the axe and hid in it all the diseases of the World... At first, Putress did not know what happened, but with time terrible diseases began to harass both him and his army. He understood that something is wrong with the Kael'thar because the weapon changed its color from blue to light green over time. Putress knew that the weapon was made of an extremely strong and enchanted ore, but holes appeared in it as if the weapon itself was suffering from disease. He got very scared because he knew that something bad was enchanted inside his weapon, which is why he hid Kael'thar in the deep abyss of Undercity in secrecy.
    A blind fate caused the weapon to be found by Jaina Proudmoore after the Battle for Undercity and was taken to Stormwind.
    At first, Archmage of Kirin Tor did not know what she was dealing with because the weapon unrecognizably changed its color and was surrounded by green flames. It could end tragically for the forces of the Alliance, if not Bishop DeLavey who, thanks to the knowledge of orcish runes, quickly recognized the weapon. Then he passed it to the dwarven engineers in Ironforge. After long research on the axe, dwarfs found out exactly the same as Grand Apothecary Putress. They were in possession of a weapon enchanted by extremely strong and destructive spells.
    Lord of Ironforge, King Magni Bronzebeard convened the Alliance leaders' meeting as soon as possible. After long
    discussions about what to do with Kael'thar, it was decided to hand him over to the strongest of human soldiers - warlock Vladyr, the Undying, to hide this cursed weapon once and for all in a place unknown to anyone and to care of it with powerful spells so that the whole Azeroth would forget about this axe...
    However, bounty hunters are still looking for Kael'thar to this day as they believe the weapon would give them eternal fame
    and unimaginable amount of money. Rumors say that Vladyr, in times when he was doing this mission, so important to Alliance, was seen in Seradane, north-east Hinterlands... But yet, to this day no one knows the place of burial of Kael'thar, the Cursed Axe of Diseases. No one, except one person...

    The artwork

    From the author

    This is my original project from scratch. As you can see, I'm a more traditionalist, as I love drawing and painting more than
    creating things in computer programs. I hope you like the artwork. You can add me on Icecrown realm - warlock Vladyr. Take care!

  6. "The Lost One"

    Legend says it was found by a skillful rogue in Black Temple after Illidan's fall shattered inside of it.....
    The rogue went a little bit more inside the Temple and saw something quite interesting...
    By his word the Sword looked alive. It was hiding from everyone on the ceiling carefully moving so it doesn't make any noise.
    But it was caught up by the rogues attention and he did parkour to get it , but waited for every one to leave so they don't see it.
    Carefully and flawlessly caught the Sword.
    The poor rogue soon be found on the floor passing out.....
    The Sword took over him.....
    Stole his soul and mind.....

    After that no one ever heard of him since then.....

    This story told a young Orc who was spying the rogue for stealing his gold.....
    One of the Sword power's was to make Iillidan's wings appear on him and with strong power to crush the wall in front of them.

    But no one believed him.

  9. Sugoth, Blade of Leeching

    Initially this Blade was no different from other weapons amongst it. During the Winterskorn War, The Iron Vrykul, were armed against Loken, when he exiled the titan-forged from Ulduar. With the help from the Dragon Aspects, the Winterskorn were put into a timeless sleep. Barely comparing to any legend, the blade fell out of existence, except for one...

    Deep beneath the frozen waste, the weapon had undergone many forms of deterioration which reduced it greatly in form and size. Around this time, guard over Ulduar had slowly weakened and fallen under a dark will. The black blood of Yogg-Saron, known as Saronite have become ever present in Northrend which allowed for his malice to seep into what was left of this blade. With the rise of the Lich king, the scourge rose to a new power and Northrend became a realm overun by undead.

    The blade was then rediscovered from saronite excavations in Ymirheim, for the scourge used this material in architecture, armory and weapons. Captured slaves were forced to mine this wicked ore, and would hear the whispers of the old ones and often go mad or commit suicide. The blade could not be handled by lowly servants or slaves. Agents from The Cult of the damned retrieved the artifact where it then came into possession of Lady Deathwhisperer.

    Although in service of the Lich King, even Lady Deathwhisperer became affected by this weapon and learned much from it. She became obsessed with the curse of flesh and finding ways to manipulatie it. Astonishingly, the parasitic malevolence, residing within the artifact started taking a toll on even someone as powerful as Lady Deathwhisperer, which forced her to devise a mana barrier to resist it power.

    After the downfall of the Lich King, the sword is retrieved by an adventurer whom must seek to stabilize its power.

    Questline: This quest chain (available only to classes: priest, mage and warlock) would start in Ymirheim mines when the player confronts Drakspeaker R'khem and frees him from imprisonment. He would make mention of the blade where the player then discovers the existence of this blade. After investigation the player will be asked to slay Lady Deathwhisperer on 25 man Heroic, to find the blade blade reforged. At this point the blade can be equipped, but is too unstable to manipulate its bonus effect, and must be infused with primordial Saronite.

    I might post a video link of me working on the sword.
