Episodesedit | hide | edit source

  • Ep. 28: The sword is first made available at Fantasy Costco.
  • Ep. 50: The sword was priced at 60,000 gold pieces, which made it prohibitively expensive to Los Tres Horny Boys. However, Taako purchased Rickle Axager's Pocket Guide to Adventuring, Third Edition and the The Slicer of T'pire Weir Isles from Garfield the Deals Warlock for 1800 gold pieces plus the Ring of Pointing (200 in store credit). Then he read the section of the pocket guide on Persuasion and got Advantage to immediately trade the Slicer of T'pire Weir Isles back for the sword. Taako immediately put it on his back as an ornament with no intention of using it, much to the dismay of everybody else.
  • Ep. 58: Taako later traded the sword back to Garfield in exchange for the blood Magnus had given him. Unknown to Garfield, Taako cast Drawmij's Instant Summons on the sword ahead of time as part of the ultimate con. He left the summoning sapphire with Magnus, who took possession of it when he returned to his physical body.
  • Ep. 59: Magnus uses the sword on agents of The Hunger. While naked. Gloriously naked.
  • Balance – Live Episode: Live in Nashville!: Magnus uses the sword on Greg Grimaldis's money monster, setting the entire vault on fire in the process. In real life, Collin is in the audience of the live show and they bring the lights up to greet him. He is held over a railing. (Dad here confirming that Colin was not near the rail let alone held over it. We sat in Row B in the mezzanine and I picked him up by the waist.)(Colin here. Daddy, stop lying. I still have PTSD from that whole experience.)
  • Balance – Live Episode: Live in San Francisco!: Magnus gives Davenport the sword in exchange for captaining his ship, the Wavehumper, while battling a kraken. Davenport kills 3 tentacles while commenting about how overpowered the sword is.
  • The Adventure Zone: Live In Atlanta!: The entire Party is enlisted to solve the mystery of arson against the fleet of Fantasy Costco's belonging to Garfield the Deals Warlock. They travel to the plane of fire where they find out that the sword is actually the transmuted former Monarch of that plane, King Wrath Fang.
  • The Zone of Adventure: Imbalance - Episode 1: The sword is turned to rust by an unknown curse that affects metal
