An evil, wholly black Sword, so dense in color that it appears entirely separate from the hilt. It was forged in the depths of Helgedad for Darklord Kraagenskul. Lone Wolf can acquire this weapon in The Masters of Darkness. For Lone Wolf, using this evil sword increases his combat prowess but also drains his life force.

Loss[edit | edit source]

Helshezag is destroyed in The Legacy of Vashna by the Deathstaff. Even if Lone Wolf was not carrying the Helshezag, he cannot carry Helshezag into all future adventures.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • The blade is unlike any that you have seen. It is wholly black, a black so dense that it appears entirely separate from the hilt, like a tear through which you glimpse the nightmare depths of space.
  • When used in combat, it will add 5 points to your COMBAT SKILL, and 7 points when used against a Darklord of Helgedad. However, prolonged use of this evil blade will weaken your ENDURANCE score. In the second and subsequent rounds of every combat in which you use the sword, you must reduce your ENDURANCE level by 1 point. This reduction is permanent.
