As you intended, I'm left wondering about the sword--why he was chosen for it, and by whom. By the way, you said that they had magicians...so did activating the resonance field somehow undo the seal which also removed human powers?
As Larry Niven did in a book entitled The Magic Goes Away, you use it up. The idea was the resonance field sealed away the source of magic, so Magicians became just men again. However it was done with malice aforethought; they knew it would happen. A magical version of mutually assured destruction.

As for the sword, that will be explained shortly


'To argue with those who have renounced the use and authority of reason is as futile as to administer medicine to the dead.' Now who said that?
