Barbarian legends tell of five magical blades of measureless power. The more civilized cultures of warmer climes believe these tales to be nothing more than delirious dreams of frost-bitten brains. "Those frozen louts- they're trying to scare respect out of us!" At least that's what they want to believe.

Three of the legendary blades of Corusk have been unearthed, and their powers have proven to be all that the tales claimed. You have been given these to use in the quest for the remaining two blades. However, word has spread to the peoples of the neighboring areas, and two groups are working against you to prevent your securing these swords. Beware the Hold of the Stonefist and the Rovers of the Barren! Only so much time remains for you to locate the last two Blades of Corusk ... and your enemies are on the horizon.

Find the blades, and reclaim your birthright of honor and respect; fail, and be outcast from your tribes for life. The choice is yours.

Plot Summary[edit]

The events in this module take place in the Flanaess immediately preceding the onset of the Greyhawk Wars themselves. As with WGS1, the plot of the module focuses on the Five Blades of Corusk. These are ancient magical swords which, according to the legends of Greyhawk's Suloise barbarians, can be brought together to be made even more powerful.

Publication History[edit]

The adventure was written by Dale "Slade" Henson with cover art by Glen Orbik and interior art by Ken Frank. It was originally intended as the second of three modules in the "World of Greyhawk Swords" (WGS) trilogy. It is therefore the sequel to the first "Swords" module, WGS1 - Five Shall Be One.[1] The third module in the series (which would have been coded WGS3) was never produced. Instead, the material originally intended for WGS3 was reworked and incorporated into the board game Greyhawk Wars.
