The Moonblade is a powerful magical sword. When unsheathed, the blade will be engulfed in blue flames, very similar to The Burning Earth. It can only be wielded by Xan, who was chosen by the sword itself to wield it. It falls under the small sword proficiency in Baldur's Gate and the dagger proficiency in the Enhanced Edition, in which it also has a speed factor of 2. The blade offers a bonus to Armor Class of +1, +3 THAC0 bonus and 50% fire resistance to the wielder. It can inflict 4-11 slashing damage and has a speed factor of 5 in Baldur's Gate and 2 in the Enhanced Edition.
|“||This potent weapon was created by the smiths of ancient Myth Drannor. Moonblades are used in the long process of selecting a ruler for the isle of Evermeet. A Moonblade choses its owner, and in the case of this sword it has chosen the elf Xan. Only Xan can use this blade, anyone else who tries will find themselves unable to lift the sword. This particular Moonblade gives resistance to fire and gives its user a bonus to his armor class.||”|
