Chapter 4 "Beyond the Doomsday Door" by Tito Leati
The hunt for the seven shards of the Shattered Star leads the heroes back to the western coast of Varisia, to the multifaith monastery known as Windsong Abbey. The next shard appears to be hidden somewhere within the dungeons below the abbey. But when the PCs arrive, they find the monastery in ruins and held by savage giants and twisted fey! An ancient terror has returned home, and now dwells within the levels beneath the monastery—a terror who hopes to open the dread doomsday door within!

Cool I love tentacle monsters! BTW I Really enjoy the covers of AP where monsters from the bestiary appear on, can't this be on every cover? I also really adored the Rokurokubi cover, my favorite cover for an AP by far!
Well I hope the sword is a unique item, maybe not an artifact or intellagent weapon, but something interesting non the less. Maybe it's a sword of sharpness for that tentacled horror.
It's not anything crazy special... the character in question is an NPC that you actually encountered in the very first scene of the AP, and she plays a bigger role in this part of the adventure. When we ordered art from her from Wayne, we asked for "a sword and an aklys" more or less. The fact that the sword looks cool is because Wayne's good at making things cool. As a result... this NPC does have a magic sword that's a bit more powerful and more expensive than an NPC of that level should have... but it's not a specific new magic item or intelligent weapon or anything like that.
