This is Suishen, the ancestral sword of the Amatatsu family, and the reason the PCs came to Kalsgard. When Kimandatsu ordered Asvig Longthews to steal the sword from Fynn Snaevald in order to prevent the Amatatsu heir from reclaiming it, the ogre mage was disappointed to discover that she could not wield the blade because of her alignment conflict and the sword’s powerful ego. Unable to find a way to destroy Suishen, Kimandatsu instead tossed it into this well, assuming that the sword would eventually rust away at the bottom of the cistern, far removed from the eyes of those who would seek it. Instead, Suishen became lodged in the well shaft, waiting to be discovered by those with the birthright to wield it.
