Dolorous Stroke

British - The cause of the Waste Lands. When this stroke was delivered, the country (Wales or, some say, the whole of Britain) was laid waste and the barrenness could be removed only by the Grail Quest. The blow that precipitated this state was either the stabbing of Pellam by Balin, who used the Sacred Spear, or the sword stroke with which Varlan killed Lambor. Sometimes referred to as Dolorous Stroke, David's Sword, David's Sword, Dolorous Blow or Dolorous Blow.
