The Nine Golden Swords were a secret society of yakuza operating in Thesk around 1372 DR, headquartered in the city of Phsant. Their leader was known as the Golden Master.[1]


The Swords had a small organization in the Shou enclave of Xiousing in Marsember circa 1479 DR. They possessed three of the fabled nine Golden Blades and hoped to claim Duc-Sum Li's blade when he died.[2]


The Nine Golden Swords' Westgate guild was employed as agents by the exiled eladrin Caelynna.[3]
