    Also an interesting idea. My character wouldn't actually be wielding the Silver Sword itself. It's his patron, and in terms of power it's an artifact-level weapon. But his pact weapon would be a psychic manifestation of it, so... close enough.

    I confess my first instinct was simply to swap out this entire feature with something else that fit better, but this discussion has produced some workable ideas to re-skin/re-flavor the Accursed Specter feature so that it fits the character concept. Thanks to all for the suggestions.
    I CAN EXPLAIN IT FOR YOU, BUT I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT FOR YOU.

    Now my paladin has eldritch blast, lightning lure, expeditious retreat and shield along with the hexblade's curse.

    He has maxed his Charisma but has a -3 penalty with dwarves, who treat him like a teenager.

    Now to find that party and retrieve the bit of his life force in the blade. Seeing how close he came he has embraced wine, woman and song (light/beauty) and taken the Ancients Oath.

    So guess that makes the blade itself the patron? Or am I just fooling myself that her patron is behind the scenes?
    I absolutely love this and Im going to adopt it into a future character.
