Examples of swords glowing with flame in fiction include some magic swords used in the game Dungeons & Dragons. A priest wielding a flaming sword through artifice appears in A Song of Ice and Fire: later a priestess of the same religion makes the sword of one king-claimant radiant through some supernatural means: around the same time, death rites performed by the first priest succeed in resurrection of the dead: the unnamed religion's clerics speak of a character called "Azor Ahai reborn", the saviour of man, and bears many similarities to Christianity and the legends surrounding the parousia, including mistaken and uncertain prophecy: some of the incantations of the order are borrowed verbatim from the King James Bible with alterations of a word or name. The makers of the recent series Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire went as far as to create a sword that could actually be lit on fire for filming. Also, the recent movie The Fountain contained a scene with a flaming sword.
