The Blade of Michael

The Knights of the Chalice are an order of warriors who are devoted to destroying evil outsiders and removing their taint from the material plane. One of their greatest knights was a fighter named Michael the Fiendslayer. He is possibly the most famous Knight of the Chalice, known for slaying the archfiend Thurazidun and countless other fiends. He went missing nearly 250 years ago while sealing a portal to the Abyss. The lore of the order is that he was cursed by a powerful demon to spend eternity fighting for his life across the infinite layers of the Abyss.

The Blade of Michael functions as a +1 holy cold iron greatsword. It is an intelligent magic item. It has an Intelligence of 6, Charisma of 18, a Wisdom of 10 and an ego of 20. It is very jealous and will not permit its wielder to use any other weapon than itself, forcing an ego check whenever the wielder tries. If the wielder is successful, The Blade of Michael will not force another ego check for an hour.  

The Blade of Michael will get stronger as the wielder gets stronger. It improves based on the sum of all the wielders class levels. This is summarized on the table below.
