The princess drinks the potion and uses the sword. Nice twist on a trope from Scandanavian fairy tales.

Liking her more and more! A princess who can do her own rescuing! :D

Yeah, when I read the fairy tale, Soria Moria Castle, I always wondered, if the princesses knew that drinking from the flask would allow them to wield this magical sword, why didn't they just do it themselves? :)

I think all the tales of magical swords were ruined for me when I learnt that it was mostly because they didn't understand what Steel was back in those days.
Any time an iron sword or whatnot ended up high quality steel by accident, they deemed it "magic". And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is where tales of magic swords come from...

... well, that or the special transitional period between the bronze age and the iron age... That was a big deal too.


Anyway... point is that ALL weapons these days are pretty much super magic by those old standards.
