Hexblades: The Lady's Gift
By Robert J. Schwalb
The Lady of the White Well is a tragic figure of the Feywild. She is the daughter of Sehanine and an eladrin knight, bound by Corellon's anger to the lake where she was conceived and born. Many suitors have come to that shore seeking the Lady's boon. To a rare few, she bestows the sword of the White Well in the hope of finding a true champion whose exploits can secure her freedom. This article introduces the Lady's sword of the White Well as a new fey pact weapon for those who would win the Lady of the White Well’s favor.

The White Well’s still waters, reflecting the fey moon’s pale light until the pool appeared milky white, stirred as if some irreverent spectator had tossed a pebble just to see what would happen. The ripple became ripples. The ripples became froth. The water boiled and seethed with alarmingly violent motion.
