Looking at the difficulty of the coming encounters and the fact that both me and my players are new (first time), I was thinking I should give my players a +1 sword which is dropped by the Orc Chieftain from the orc event. I was thinking it would do +1 all, then +2 to elves. Or maybe it would do +1 to fey, +2 if held by an orc. I think it could make for some interesting RP opportunities but it may be too powerful. At this point the players should be level 1 or level 2.
Is a +1 sword (with +2 to fey/elves) too powerful for their current level?
