- It can seem puzzling at first when you find out that weapons forged by the Darklords, like Helshezag or the Dagger of Vashna, give not only combat bonus against Darklords, but can also kill them permanently, a feature that until then was solely associated with the Sommerswerd, the ultimate weapon for the forces of good. But then you realize: as a whole, the Darklords never feared much any hypothetical hero reaching them in their strongholds surrounded by their armies, especially since they are Nigh Invulnerable. The one enemy they are most likely to be confronted with — taking in account their very strong Chronic Backstabbing Disorder, and the fact that the only way for an Archlord to emerge is a civil war between their different factions — are simply other Darklords. Thus, it should be no surprise that they devised weapons specifically to defend themselves against their rivals, and that could put them down definitely.
