Varscona was an enchanted longsword.
It was of a type of sword used by Sharran priests during the sacrificial rites conducted during Feast of the Moon ceremonies. Accoriding to legend, this sword was placed within the chest of its ritually mummified owner, who was to be exhumed and born again in some new form. The tomb was forgotten, however, and she was never let out of it, leaving her to develop a rage that bordered on insanity, imbuing the sword with enhanced deadliness in combat and an ability to deal cold damage. When the tomb was later discovered, only the sword was found within.
