The Hero's Blade.-(Artifact Weapon)

Every hero is not with his signature weapon, It's original appearance is that of a blade but it attunes to it's master to form a weapon of his preference.

Enchantments.
Sophisticated- giving it a total of 5 Properties
Energized- It does 2 [fire][cold][electric][Force] damage. It show in a stream of colors as if held inside the weapon, splashing and unleashed with every strike.
Variable- Though a simple blade at first, I is attuned to his master and can change to a weapon much better suited for the job.
Extradimentional- The weapon is summoned by you, and when you call for it, it will come.

I'm fairly certain the extra properties that Sophisticated bestows are mundane properties not magical enchantments (which they sometimes refer to as magical properties in the new PDF, unfortunately). Otherwise is 1 point enchantment is giving you 2 more, and everybody would take it.

Confused at what your talking about. I'm referring that with the Sophisticated Enchantment my weapon will have 5 properties (3 normal and 2 more from the enchantment). That's why I place it as 5 properties as opposed to 5 enchantments.

Artifact weapons give you 4 points and I used them to get 4 1pt enchants. I never mentioned getting extra points or adding extra enchants.

Energized, Extradimensional, Variable, and Sophisticated are all 1 point Enchantments, yet, as it is now worded, it looks like you've given it Energized 4 times over.

No, that's the artifact level of Energized. 8 points of damage, split any way you want in groups of 2.

In the heyday of NWN, there was a module series called Penultima which I still regard with the utmost fondness and respect — and I still remember one of the items from the second module.

Badly Singing Sword
Somebody screwed this one up, but if you can get past the discomfort of using it, the eternal cacophony on this rapier's edge can do a number on your foes.
Greater Weapon - +2 item bonus to attack rolls
[Reacting], [Magnum], [Deft] - Take an additional 5-ft step each round, ignore 5 points of DR or Resistance, and gain a +2 bonus to initiative.
Energized - +4 [Force] damage on attacks
Adept - +2 item bonus to Bluff checks
Seven is the Number of Legend.
This is my mod voice.

I'm confused by the blade of night. How does seeking make it brutal 3?

when it becomes a relic, Sophisticated gives it 2 properties instead of 1.
