The Equinox Blade is said to be able to cut light from shadow, but that is probably just a legend.  However, in the right hands, at the right time, it can certain cut someone’s soul from their body.

Equinox Blade

This sword is a work of art, the blade of the sword is half bright silver that flashes in the sun like a diamond, the other half is a black as a starless night, the hilt is carved crystal with a guard of tarnished silver chased guard.  Made for the Courts of the season the sword was supposed to rotate to a watcher of the opposite court from that which was in ascendance but it has become lost.

The Equinox Blade is a +2 long sword and treated as cold iron or silver as needed, during the autumn and winter months, it is a flaming weapon, during the spring and summer it is a frost weapon.  However, on the equinox, it is both as well as gaining the keen enhancement.  In the hands of a member of the appropriate court in the appropriate season -winter during summer, spring during autumn and so on- it provide the wielder with a +2 luck bonus to initiative and a +1 luck bonus to Armor class and all saves.
