Ovinrbaane, Enemy of All Enemies, is a powerful, intelligent, but cursed greatsword once wielded by the barbarian warlord Armag, leader of the Tiger Lords tribe and follower of Gorum. Infused with the warlike spirit of its former wielder, the blade seeks only war and conflict. It protects its wielder from hostile magic and, it is said, infuses the wielder with a portion of Armag's legendary power.[1]

History

For many years, Armag led his warriors to victory, proclaiming himself invincible and pridefully declaring himself Gorum's champion. While Gorum was amused by his boastfulness, Pharasma was insulted, and sent aeons to defeat him. Gorum took offense, resulting in a battle of wits between the two deities. When Armag was finally felled in battle, Gorum infused Armag's soul into his blade, thereby forbidding Armag's soul to enter the Boneyard. He then sent word to Armag's tribe to inter the body and equipment in a great tomb filled with guardians, traps, and tests. Gorum decreed that only the worthiest warrior would be fit to claim Ovinrbaane as their own, and all others would be slain and added to the guardians protecting the tomb.[2]

The Tiger Lords are led by the supposedly reborn Armag, known as the Armag the Twice-Born, and either seeks or already wields Ovinrbaane.[2][3]
