The Bard's Tale Wiki

The Ego Sword, also called the Singing Sword is a unique sword in The Bard's Tale (2004) and one of the games two unique weapon alongside the Shadow Axe.


It can be obtained in Chapter XII: Firbolg Mines by rescuing the trapped miners in the Firbolg mines and being nice to Culainn.


When equipped it will sing along when the Bard plays a summoning song. This is because the Ego Sword counts as both a weapon and an instrument, tremendously cutting down on the time needed to switch between the two if the Bard wants to use his summons during combat. The sword also appears to be short, but when it is swung, an ethereal blade of smoke extends well beyond the end of the shaft, giving it an oddly long reach.
