I have been watching and learning from Youtube videos about forging swords as well as the History Channel show Forged In Fire. I had an intense idea of the forging process of the most powerful weapon in my fantasy book. This weapon’s power was so great that it allowed its chosen bloodline to rule unopposed for thousands of years. With this in mind, I wondered what kind of forging process would be worthy enough to create a sword of power. I am thinking of a system that would involve dragons, volcanoes, and lots of blood. Whether or not this is how the sword was actually made or just the stuff of local legends will be left to debate as the story progresses. Overall though, this sword’s power is as formidable as it is terrifying and I look forward to exploring how the main character harnesses its power.
