According to the ancient lore, The flame sword is critical to G3 for liberation but i can't fully decide which land (kingdom) is being referred to :—>
………………………………………….. …………………….
Rhobar hid in a cave but the beast tracked him down.
And Rhobar felt behind him and there he found a sword.
He took it and killed the beast with one stroke.
But the sword was surrounded by fire and Innos was with it.
And Innos said to Rhobar, “descend from the mountains and
defeat my enemies". And Rhobar waged war against the Orcs and the wrath of Innos
descended upon them. And Rhobar was victorious.
………………………………………….. ………………………
I'm not sure if the "one strike kill" (killed the beast with one stroke) which was implemented in the vanilla G3, disappeared with every subsequent patch.

This lore thing suggests the correct game method of killing the Nordmar orcs and remain aligned to Innos. It could also mean for nameless hero to come down from the mountains into Myrtana and liberate/kill the orcs with either the Demon sword, the flame sword or the flame sword scroll, there are also non-hostile orcs to consider. To "descend from the mountains" suggests coming to the lower lands of Myrtana as "descend from the mountains" in Nordmar is weird - Nordmar is already up in the mountains…confusing to say the least.

I found with patch 1.12 that flame sword scrolls did not get used up when the demon sword is in the backpack (*felt behind him*) - you can use it continuously as long as there is enough mana (as a paladin with regeneration maybe) Also the shield stats (i had the rune shield) stay in effect even when on hero's back when wielding the flame scroll sword.

It is extremely difficult to enable the Demon Sword (135 exp) which BTW, can be both sharpened and blessed giving a total 155 blade damage as well as +8 defense to each of - missles - impact - blades.

To enable the demon sword at say L70, in theory gives 700 possible points, there are over 50 Kings Sorrel plants to make strength potions of +2str giving 100 strength points but finding equal ammount of Dragon Roots is very hard but would give theoretical total of 800 strength points, more than enough to weild the demon sword, the large weapon skill is also required.
Then there are strength enhancing magical rings and amulets etc. So it isn't impossible to liberate using the 'Demon Sword' .

Bak-Arash the demon servant of Ur-Arash (near to Berek's Tomb) by default always has a demon sword. By far the easiest way to get a demon sword is to use the lightning spell on a demon, nearly always works first time.
