Lightbringer was an enchanted mace.[1]


The holy mace glowed with a great radiance, and was made of brass. The end of Lightbringer was shaped like that of a sun breaking out from the clouds.[1]


Lightbringer, which shone like a torch when commanded, had a +1 enchantment, and allowed the wielder to cause extra damage to undead beings.[1]


Some time in the 10th century DR, the explorer Urmon noted in his journal that the magical mace was commissioned by clerics of Lathander from artisans of the Forge of Spells. However, it was lost when Uruth Ukrypt raided the area.[1]

Circa 1491 DR,[note 1] the mace, as well as Dragonguard, was watched over by a spectator beholder that was conjured by the original wizards that dwelt in the Wave Echo Cave.[1]



  1. Pages 30‒31 of Lost Mine of Phandelver describe the eruption of Mount Hotenow (1451 DR) as occurring "30 years ago", which would place the adventure in 1481 DR. However, pages 103 and 179 of Acquisitions Incorporated, a later source, state that the events described in the adventure happen five years after both Lost Mine of Phandelver and Princes of the Apocalypse. Since the latter is explicitly set in 1491 DR, and considering this answer by Ed Greenwood about dating the adventure, this wiki will use 1491 DR for events related to this sourcebook.
