The Sword of Ahkranox

So you all may or may not have been wondering what precisely The Sword of Ahkranox is.

Here's an early rendition of what it looks like:

The in-game world in MSoA is called "Ahkranox", and not actually a world at all. It's a bit hard to explain, and I need to get a proper writer on board to get this worded properly, but I'll do my best here.
While a certain amount of what the people of Ahkranox know is mere skepticism and religion, the truth of the matter is that the corporeal world does not actually exist at all, but is a mere illusion held together by the high magic of The Sword of Ahkranox. The sword attracts the wandering spirits of mankind and projects them into the world of Ahkranox, where they all believe and perceive that they are existing on a physical plane.
Why exactly the sword does this, no-one knows, but The Overlords of Ahkranox revere the object above all things and have built a massive city around it.
The sword itself is ice cold to the touch. So much so that where it is kept, a giant crystal of ice has encased it.
Anyway, that's the most I can tell you now, so more soon hopefully!

As for the game itself, lately all my work has been on getting the scripting engine working... So more of that tomorrow.
