I was reading the article about awhile plume mountain.  And I am wondering what weapons are they referring to when they say Wave, Whelm, and blackrazor. And if they have a 4e version thanks  
Those three weapons are artifacts from previous editions, intelligent weapons with their own personalities and goals. Wave is a halberd if I remember right, and Blackrazor is a sword. I forget what Whelm is. Warhammer, maybe?
 I believe they were statted out for 4E. Adventurer's Vault 2, maybe? or maybe Mordenkainen's Magical Emporium or whatever that book's called...

 EDIT: Yup - they're listed in the online Compendium... Wave is a trident (published in The Plane Below) and Whelm is a warhammer (published in Open Grave). Blackrzor doesn't seem to be in there, but I'm fairly positive they statted it out somewhere.

There are reasons they call me Mad...

IIRC, the whole S series will be reprinted soon under the name "Dungeons of Dread", due out on March 19th.

OD&D, 1E and 2E challenged the player. 3E challenged the character, not the player. Now 4E takes it a step further by challenging a GROUP OF PLAYERS to work together as a TEAM. That's why I love 4E.

"Challenge" is overrated.  "Immersion" is usually just a more pretentious way of saying "having fun playing D&D."

Blackrazor was the subject of a contest a while back.  The winners' submissions for it were published.

As far as I know, none of them were officially accepted as the Blackrazor.

Yes, but this is just a reprint of the originals. This will not be a conversion to 4E (or any other edition), unfortunately.
Black Razor sucked souls if I remember right. It's blade looked like the night sky, but every star was a soul. I remember it well as I'd just read Michael Moorcock's Elric stories and I so wanted my character to have a blade like Stormbringer.
Finally some Greyhawk lovin'!
I've included all 4E references to White Plume Mountain locales in the Nentir Vale Wiki
