This is a legendary weapon of heroic proportions, especially among the far-northern tribes of barbarians. Champions after champion have wielded this blade against countless enemies and the blood it has spilled could fill a small sea.

When the hero Trueblood destroyed the Harbinger, the demon gorging itself on the blood of peasant folk near Luskan, he bound its essence in the only vessel capable of holding it, his fabled sword Deliverance. Though the evil creature was dominated by the will of the semi-sentient blade, it was not truly defeated, and it transofrms the weapon from within. Now it acts like any other enchanted weapon, but when it strikes, there is a small shance that a fireball erupts, a sign that the demon within still rages at its imprisonment. There is also a chance that any ogre its hits will be turned to stone. Whether this is an ability of the demon or a vestigial power of the original blade is not known.

When Sarevok has joined with his cause, and his blade was restored to him. Sarevok describes the weapon as a Deathbringer blade and has restored some of the weapon old power. Without his Bhaalspawn essence to channel through the sword, however, it cannot achieve the power it once had.
