Giantsmiter is a Greatsword with a stylized "L" on the unique hilt. The sword is able to cut through steel, stone, and anything else that is known with equal ease. The wielder of the sword can cause blue flames to cover the blade by twisting the handle, though it is said that only a person of noble heart can do so. The sword also allowed Jaymes to hear the thoughts of the Elemental King. It is an ancient artifact of the Knights of Solamnia and was created by Vinas Solamnus and a great Wizard.
Originally the sword was known to be in the possession of Lankford Lorimar, but when Lord Lorimar and his daughter, Dara Lorimar, were assassinated, the sword fell into the possession of Jaymes Markham, who was falsely accused of being Lorimar's assassin.
