Curled Finger Posted February 6 Share Posted February 6 Nightfall is an interesting blade. There is a moonstone in the pommel. Moonstones don’t appear a great lot in story, but the one really big time a really big one did we all noticed. Any one remember Maynard Plumm? If you aren’t reminded of that when you see a magic sword with a moonstone in it then you don’t read enough forum topics. Start participating. Moonstone screams glamour to me and magic and all manner of just creepy tree magic soul sucking memory taking stuff. The fact that Dalton Greyjoy, The Red Kraken, Gangsta Reaver is the guy who’s actually credited with retrieving this sword and claiming it (for?) Westeros is disconcerting. Even if it was from a lousy stinking corsair. Oh sure, Nightfall is now in the hands of an oddly progressive knight (?) from the Iron Islands (!) named Harras Harlaw, heir to the Ten Towers. Not so fast. Harlaw is out island hopping with Euron in the Shields and is the newly minted Lord of Greyshield. Let’s be clear here. Euron Greyjoy is a boss level evil sorcerer. His little brother, the priest even, has visions of big bro with power boosting defense armor and thrones and frolicking dwarves and debauchery a plenty. This does not bode well for anyone any where. He’s got all this sacrifice going. We’ve seen what that does. He’s got his own pregnant salt thrall tied up with his priest brother at the front of the ship. All he needs is a really powerful magic sword now. If you go down the list you will see that most of the swords names match up with another sword. Nightfall happens to match Dawn and Lightbringer. What do you think will happen when Euron slits Harlaw’s throat for Nightfall?
