ScarbladeD&D Insider Article
An adventure for characters of levels 7-9
by Sterling Hershey

Somewhere in the Chaos Scar is the Proving Pit, a gladiatorial arena that is associated with an enticing magical sword called the Scarblade. Ruling over the Proving Pit is Morrn Bladeclaw, its foremost champion and former owner of the Scarblade. To claim the mystical blade, challengers must face Morrn Bladeclaw, but not until they've bested the pit's lesser champions first. But the Scarblade, and the Proving Pit itself, might have something to say about the situation. "Scarblade" is an adventure for characters of levels 7 to 9.

A humanoid apparition shimmers into view atop the low dais. It carries a spectral sword that resembles the object in the crystal. It studies you for a few moments, then raises its hands and speaks, turning slowly in place as if addressing an unseen audience. "Who yearns for justice? Judgment? Fame? Who seeks glory through victory over all challengers?" Then it faces you and points the sword toward you. "They do. They have come to confront their destiny in the Proving Pit!"
