Death Sword is an ancient demon that once terrorized the Gerudo Desert. Adventurers who encounter Death Sword at first see nothing but a large, squared-off sword stuck in the ground. The writing on the sword reads “Gobera”. A Knowledge: History check reveals that this is an ancient word meaning “death”.

Death Sword’s body is invisible to the naked eye. Players attempting to deduce where its body is in relation to its sword take a -5 penalty to attack.

Death Sword’s sword has an AC of 15 and a DC of 25 to break it.
