The Avatar finds the Chaos Sword

The Chaos Sword, or Sword of Chaos, is a powerful weapon encountered in Ultima V.

Rumors had reached the Avatar that Lord Blackthorn possessed a special sword, stored in a chest covered in human skin, deep within the bowels of the Palace of Blackthorn. The forces in this sword were said to be so horrible that it would force the wielder to slaughter his or her own friends in a fit of madness. The wise Avatar resisted the temptation to wield this horid weapon.

It is unknown what later became of the sword.

Lore Edit

Another of the Oppression's playthings of Evil, the Sword of Chaos possesses the soul of the knight who wields it. Once the Sword is brought to bear, its wielder will seek to slaughter his or her allies in battle. Blows of unmatched strength will be struck until each and every friend suffers a bloody death, whereupon the insane fighter will faint dead away at the sight of the carnage. The Sword rests in a northeastern chamber of Blackthorn's palace's ground floor, within a box lined with human skin.
