The Sword of Centuries. February 13, 2013 Posted by Mookie
The Sword of Centuries has been mentioned before, albeit a long time ago and in a different context. It's one of Donovan Deegan's most popular compositions, and the opening song Oblivion Folder performed at the benefit concert in The Battle For Barthis.

A few other bits of trivia about the Sword of Centuries:

- The official lyrics of the song can be found in the print edition of The Battle For Barthis.

- Over the years, readers have sent me lyrics, guitar tablature, and even audio samples of their own versions of Donovan's most famous song.

- The black blade of the sword is my own small tribute to Sokka's "space sword" from Avatar: The Last Airbender.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
