The elemental plane of earth holds many wonders, from xorn who glide through stone with the ease of a fish swimming through water to the sentient golems of Scoria who toil in foundries to create an army of their kind. The strangest and rarest of all denizens of the elemental plane of earth is the diamond dragon.
Legends say diamond dragons once ruled the plane of earth. They wielded strange mind powers and their claws and teeth hewed through rock the way metal passes through flesh. So feared are the diamond dragons that even the great Pashas deny their existence, unwilling to admit such powerful beings ever lived. Whether diamond dragons truly exist or are simply a tale told to scare young elementals, one piece of evidence in their favour is diamond’s edge.
The diamond’s edge is said to have been forged from either the slain body of a diamond dragon, scales stolen from a dragon’s hide, or gifted to a mortal paladin who had done a diamond dragon some great service. The legends vary but the sword itself remains the same. Diamond’s edge is an incredibly sharp weapon that becomes deadlier the longer the wielder uses it. At its most powerful diamond’s edge can behead opponents and sever limbs with a single cut. Those who possess the sword often find themselves hunted by others who covet the weapon and its deadly edge.
