The following are combined abilities:
When tapped together and someone says, “In defense of the Realm” a hit-point pool is formed from the current wielders of both items. Hit points are combined and damage taking by either wielder affects the pool, as well as healing. If it goes to zero, both wielders fall. When done, hit points return based on the ratio of hit points contributed.
When both are being used in combat each can create an Aldeberon Disk to ride on.
The combined special ability 1/day, when both are set to +4 hit/damage, both wielders say, “For the Realm!” and attack a single target. To determine the special attack, count only the +4 from the weapons. If they both hit, a disintegrate spell goes off and the target has -4 on the save. If not disintegrated or they hit but don’t activate the special attack, normal damage is calculated.
A sword and staff, enchanted over several months while Aldeberon and his wife Crysannia camped at the intersection of 3 magic leylines. They represent the penultimate achievement of Al and Crysannia. Both are +4 Defenders
