Namarra, also known as The Sword That Never Sleeps, was the sword of Serrus the Great, founder of Amn.[1][2]


Namarra was a unique magic +2 keen longsword that glowed light purple and could be commanded by its owner to cast silence at any time. It floated on water, and white sparks flew from it when it struck metal. Both sides of the blade were engraved, one with "Namarra" and the other with "Never sleeps." The only reason for its alternate name was this inscription, and it did not convey any powers of alertness. Nothing was known of the sword's creation, but it was worth around 30,000 gold pieces.[3]

  • In Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, there appears a very similar sword called Namarra or Neversleep, which has the ability to cast Silence three times per day and a +2 enhancement bonus and does extra damage, but has no other abilities.
  • In Neverwinter Nights, it is possible to create an enchanted rapier called Namarra. Versions can be created at different levels of enhancement bonus, but they all have a chace to daze the target.
