Bow of Nigh

The Bow of Nigh is mythical weapon carried by The Shattered Slave in the folk tale of the same name. Some believe that the bow is the very same carried by the god Erado in depictions of The Inozavitae. This conjecture would be especially interesting, if true, due to the fact that Erados bow is made from one of the few branches of The Golden Tree, which brought all life to Elianor and was integral in the creation of man.

It seems more than coincidental that the tree that brought men to this realm would later sacrifices a piece of itself to save them from certain doom at the hands of the Titans. However, a clue may be found in the story of Sysaphons Ascension, when Magorian imbibes Sysaphons blade with the power to destroy the titans by mistake. Perhaps a similar incident happened to the shattered slave. What is most likely, however, is that there is one true hero and we are hearing two versions of the same story. Perhaps the mighty Sysaphons blade is The Bow of Nigh, and the history has become confused.
