The following specific weapons usually are pre-constructed with exactly the qualities described here.

General and Common (and Uncommom) Faerûnian Weapons

Acid Fang Dagger

Etched with a seemingly random pattern of thin lines, this +1 dagger is constantly covered with a thin sheen of acid. Although the weapon's magic prevents the acid from harming the wielder, an acid fang dagger deals an additional +1d6 points of acid damage with each hit. in addition, the wielder gains power over reptilian animals, including snakes. Once per day, the dagger can cast a specialized version of the animal friendship spell that affects only snakes and reptiles. The dagger's wielder can befriend a maximum of 8 Hit Dice worth of creatures at one time. While holding the dagger, the wielder can speak with reptiles as the speak with animals spell.

Agony Sais

Both sais are identical, beautifully crafted so the center blade resembles a serpent. Green leather covers the handle and the tines are fashioned to look like recoiling vipers, fangs bared. Agony sais are always sold in pairs. Each one functions as a +2 silver sai. Whenever the wielder strikes a living creature with both sais in the same round, she can leave one or both weapons buried in her opponent's flesh, wracking the target with terrible pain. Such targets take 1d6 points of damage per sai each round and function as if under the effect of the slow spell. Removing a sai is a standard action and both must be removed to end the slow effect.
Moderate; (DC 20) necromancy; CL 20th; Craft Magic Arms and Armor, slow, wracking touch. 10,000 gp (642 gp for two masterwork alchemically silvered sais), 800 XP. Weight: 2 lb. for the pair; Market price: 20,640 gp.

Albruin

Albruin is a powerful magic sword coated in silver, which makes it effective against undead and lycanthropes. It is intelligent, with a mischievous personality that may drag you on unplanned adventures. You are but the latest in a long and varied line of wielders who have ranged from Cormyr to Impiltur to the Moonsea, with many adventures along the way.
History: Albruin is believed to be the creation of the long-dead smith Surdee, who was famous in his day for the craftsmanship of his work that came out of the forges of ice-bound Glister, where he worked ore fresh from the mines above the city on the edge of the glacier. The blade itself evades questions about its origins: It has no markings or definite touches of workmanship that identify Albruin as the work of anyone in particular.
Albruin was held for decades in the royal house of Cormyr, kept as a family treasure but seldom (due to its alignment) borne by the kings of that land. It was stolen from the palace at Suzail in the Year of Daystars (1268 DR) by the thief Nypan ("Nipe"), a halfling who was soon arrested in Wheboon by soldiers of Cormyr and slain when he attempted to escape. Nipe did not have the blade when seized, and he did not reveal its whereabouts. It was rumored among the thieves of that place that Nypan sold it to a "gray trader" (fence) named Blusken Shult, who delivered the sword to a waiting buyer.
The blade's whereabouts were uncertain until the Year of the Wandering Waves (1292 DR), when a lady of high birth in Selgaunt, one Shamur Karn (later Uskreven), found the blade left behind in her bedchamber by a visitor fleeing the city guard. He never returned, and Shamur sold it in the Year of the Talking Skull (1293 DR) before she disappeared. The sword was bought by a recruiter visiting the city of Selgaunt on matters of trade (gold for mercenaries) on behalf of Prince Thaum of Telflamm. With his army in tow, Thaum sailed across the Easting Reach

Armathor's Sling Stones

These +1 sling bullets were crafted especially for Sammkol Thistlestar, one of the only two halfling armathors of Myth Drannor. Each stone produces a slow effect (Will DC 14 negates) on any creature it strikes, so that a halfling's shorter legs will not prove disadvantageous when chasing down a malefactor. At least two hundred armathor's sling stones were created before Sammkol's murder in 119 DR. These items are usually found in groups of fifty.

Arrowdeath Flail

This +2/+1 dire flail provides excellent protection against projectile attacks. While holding an arrowdeath flail, the wielder can deflect projectiles and thrown weapons as if she had the Deflect Arrows feat. When taking the total defense action, an arrowdeath flail grants an additional +2 deflection bonus to Armor Class that applies only to ranged weapon attacks.

Arrow of Biting

This arrow injects poison (Fort DC 16, 1d10 Con/1d10 Con) into its target. If the projectile misses, it is destroyed. Arrows of biting are manufactured individually, not in lots of fifty as with other projectiles. They are sometimes crafted as crossbow bolts or javelins.
Caster Level: 7th; Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, poison; Market Price: 1,457 gp; Cost to Create: 732 gp + 58 XP.

Arrow of Disintegration

When this arrow strikes a target, the target must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 19) or vanish as though struck with a disintegrate spell. Like the spell, the arrow can be used to disintegrate nonliving matter as well as creatures. A creature that makes a successful saving throw takes 5d6 points of damage. The arrow is consumed in the attack.
Caster Level: 11th; Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, disintegrate; Market Price: 3,307 gp; Cost to Create: 1,657 gp + 132 XP.
Source: Arms and Equipment Guide

Arrow of Eyes

The fletching of this +1 arrow is painted with brightly colored eyes. When fired, an arrow of eyes allows its wielder to see through a magical sensor located within its fletching. The sensor behaves exactly like an Arcane Eye spell cast by a 10th-level sorcerer, except that it moves only when the arrow moves. The wielder must concentrate to use the magical sensor, which lasts for 10 minutes. If the arrow lodges in a moving object, the sensor moves with it. Neither the arrow nor the sensor provide any illumination of their own. The arcane eye ability functions only once. If an arrow of eyes is recovered intact after firing, it functions only as a +1 arrow.
Caster Level: 10th; Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, arcane eye; Market Price: 1,047 gp; Cost to Create: 527 gp + 42 XP.

Arrow of Glory

This unusual arrow has a white shaft and fletching and is inscribed all along its length with tiny lettering, prayers to the good gods to guide the arrow to its mark. An arrow of glory is a +3 evil outsider bane arrow. Whenever it strikes a creature, it explodes in bright white light, dazzling all creatures within 20 feet for 1d6 rounds unless they succeed on a DC 20 Fortitude save. In addition to the normal bane effects, should these arrows strike an evil outsider, the target must succeed on a DC 20 Fortitude save or be prevented from running or charging for 1d6 rounds.
CL 12th; Strong; (DC 21) conjuration and evocation; Craft Magic Arms and Armor, radiance, summon monster I, creator must be good. 246 gp, 5 sp (plus 7 gp for masterwork arrow), 20 XP.; Weight: - ; Market Price: 500 gp.

Axe of Anger

This +2 greataxe allows its wielder to push himself beyond the normal limits of rage. Whenever a character wielding the axe of anger uses the barbarian rage ability, he may sustain the rage for 2 additional rounds. In addition the raging character is not limited by height when using the Jump skill.

Axe of Falls

This +2 returning throwing axe of distance can be thrown normally, or it can be thrown in a special sweeping attack that can trip foes. When making a ranged trip attempt with the axe of falls, the wielder makes a touch attack, and if successful, makes an opposed Strength check against the target. This opposed check works exactly like a normal trip attempt, but if the wielder loses there is no return trip attempt possible. The axe of falls provides no bonus on normal trip attacks. Feats that affect normal trip attempts, such as Improved Trip, do not apply to the ranged trip attack.

Axe of Pairs

This +2 handaxe is easier to wield as an off-hand weapon. Whenever the axe of pairs is used in the off hand, its wielder may make one additional off-hand attack at a -5 penalty. This penalty is subtracted from the wielder's worst off-hand attack bonus. For example, a fighter with a base attack of +6/+1 and the Two-Weapon Fighting, and Improved Two-Weapon Fighting feats wielding an axe of pairs in the off-hand would get five attacks. The two attacks with the primary weapon would be at +4/-1, and the attacks with the axe of pairs in the off-hand would be at +4/-1/-6.
Caster Level: 7th; Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, haste; Market Price: 50,306 gp; Cost to Create: 25,306 gp + 2,000 XP.

Axe of Shards

This +3 dwarven waraxe has a clear, crystalline blade. Three crystal spikes protrude from the back of the axe head. Although the main blade is as hard as normal steel, all of the three crystal spikes can easily be removed by the weapon's wielder. Each sharp, balanced spike is treated as a masterwork throwing dagger. The spikes last for only one day once removed from the axe, and they cannot be reattached. Once a spike is removed from the axe, a new one begins to grow slowly in its place. It takes a spike three days to grow, and spikes cannot be removed from the axe before they are completely formed.

Axe of Storms

This powerful orc double axe has two intricately carved heads joined by a shaft made of a strange blue-tinted wood. Each head bears an ability that gives the weapon part of its name. One head is thundering, and the other is shock. Furthermore, the axe is imbued with a flexible enhancement bonus. At the beginning of each round, the wielder of an axe of storms may allocate the weapon's +4 enhancement bonus between its two heads (minimum +0). The allocation lasts until the beginning of the wielder's next round. For example, on one round the wielder could allocate +2 to each head of the weapon, then change the allocation to +3 shock in the primary hand and +1 thundering in the off hand on the following round.

Axe of the Joyous Dance

This +3 dancing handaxe always looks well-polished and new, and its blade is covered with light etchings of satyrs dancing. Once per day while dancing, the axe can, at the mental command of its owner, produce Tasha's hideous laughter (as the spell from a 4th-level caster) instead of making a normal attack. Creatures affected can make a Will save (DC 19) to resist the axe's effects.

Axe of the Sea Reavers

This +2 greataxe of Illuskan manufacture gives its wielder the ability to float atop the water, no matter what his weight. Furthermore, the wielder can, with the war cry engraved into the haft, give all allies within 15 feet a +2 morale bonus on saving throws, attack rolls, ability checks, skill checks, and weapon damage rolls for one round. By saying the command word engraved on the blade itself, the wielder can force all foes within 15 feet to make a Will save (DC 16) or flee, as the fear spell from a 7th-level caster. The war cry and the command word can each be used once per day.
Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, fear; Market Price: 13,920 gp; Cost to Create: 7,120 gp + 544 XP.

Axe of the Winds

This +3 battleaxe gives its possessor great power over the wind. The possessor is unaffected by severe winds, including magical effects such as the gust of wind spell. Furthermore, three times per day the wielder can cause a gust of wind by swinging the axe of the winds over his head as a standard action. Once per day, the wielder can create a wind wall in a similar manner. Both effects are as the spells from an 11th-level caster.

Badgerclaw

This +2 light pick grants its wielder powerful abilities to shape and move stone. Three times per day its wielder may swing it at stone and have the weapon cast stone shape as a 5th-level caster. In addition, the wielder may meld into stone once per day as a 5th-level caster.

Balor's Sword of Flame

The traditional weapon of the balor demon is a Large +1 vorpal bastard sword that can Detect Good as the spell from a 12th-level caster, except that its range is 30 feet. These weapons are often mistaken for flaming swords because they look like tongues of flame.

Balor's Sword of Lightning

A variation on the traditional balor's blade is this Large +1 brilliant energy shock bastard sword. This weapon can detect law as cast by a 12th-level sorcerer, but with a range of 30 feet. These weapons resemble bolts of lightning.
Because the market price of this item is the same as for the balor's sword of flame, it can be substituted for that weapon with no adjustment to the balor's treasure.
Caster Level: 16th; Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, continual flame, detect law, gaseous form, and call lightning or lightning bolt; Market Price: 115,870 gp; Cost to Create: 58,270 gp + 4,635 XP.

Balor's Sword of Smiting

This Large +5 unholy bastard sword allows its wielder to smite good once per day The wielder adds his Charisma modifier (if positive) to his attack roll and deals +10 damage, in addition to the +2d6 points of unholy damage the weapon normally deals. This special smite attack is in addition to any smite ability the wielder might already have, but the wielder cannot use two different smite abilities on the same attack. This weapon looks like a bolt of red lightning.
Because the market price of this item is close to that of the balor's sword of flame, it can be substituted for that weapon with no adjustment to the balor's treasure.

Balor's Sword of Soul Stealing

The most fearsome weapon carried by the balors, this Large +3 vorpal bastard sword appears as a crackling black-and-purple flame. A precious black sapphire is set in the weapon's pommel. When it severs the head of a living creature, the sword draws forth the soul of the victim and imprisons it in the black sapphire, as the soul bind spell. The victim receives a Will save (DC 23) to avoid the soul bind effect. If the weapon severs the head of a creature with more than 30 Hit Dice, the sapphire shatters without imprisoning the soul, and it must be replaced. The sapphire can contain only one soul at a time, but balors are rumored to know mystic rituals that can draw the soul out of the gem, allowing them to use it for various vile purposes.
This item is significantly more expensive than the standard-issue balor weapon. A balor equipped with a sword of soul stealing typically has only its sword and its whip, and no additional treasure.

Baneblades of Demron

The six powerful swords known as the baneblades of Demron were created over the course of 300 years. Though the archmage Demron receives the credit for their creation, the weapons were actually cooperative efforts, created jointly by all the races that inhabited Myth Drannor before its fall. Each of the blades was keyed to one particular type of wielder. (In game terms, only members of a specific race or class may use a given baneblade.) The baneblade functions as a masterwork, nonmagical weapon if the wielder is of an inappropriate race and/or class.
All of the baneblades are +4 holy, evil outsider and undead bane swords. Each sheds light equivalent to that of a torch; though the wielder may suppress this light with a mental command. The individual blades also have their own additional powers, as described below. Unless otherwise noted, each power of a baneblade is activated by command word.

Banesword

These +1 lawful longswords have been appearing in greater numbers in the hands of devout Banites. Because the blades and hilts are adorned with symbols of Bane, good folk have been hesitant to wield them after taking them from slain worshipers of the Black Lord.

Battleaxe of the Bull

This +2 battleaxe has a thick, heavy blade and a large spike on the top of its haft ideal for charging foes. The axe grants the Improved Bull Rush feat to anyone holding it. If used in both hands, the axe's powerful blows can push foes back. When used to make a two-handed melee attack, any successful hit forces the target 5 feet directly away from the wielder in addition to dealing normal damage. Creatures bigger than Large are immune to this effect.

Bladed Crossbow

This +2 heavy crossbow is magically strengthened and fitted with sharp metal blade. In addition to functioning as a normal +2 heavy crossbow, the bladed crossbow can be used as a melee weapon with a +2 enhancement bonus that deals 1d8+2 points of damage (critical X2). Unless the wielder takes the Exotic Weapon Proficiency (bladed crossbow) fear, melee attacks made with the weapon incur the -4 nonproficiency penalty.

Blade of Deception

The flat steel blade of this +3 rapier is hard to follow in combat. Any time the wielder uses the Bluff skill to feint in combat while wielding the blade of deception, the blade provides a +2 enhancement bonus on the Bluff check. The blade of deception provides no bonus on other Bluff checks. In addition, any time a feint is successful in combat, the wielder can move freely without provoking attacks of opportunity from the target of the feint. Anyone not the target of the feint may take attacks of opportunity against the wielder normally.

Blade of Dragondoom

The wielder of this +3 greatsword may, as a free action, choose to deliver a smite attack upon a dragon. For every size category of the dragon larger than Medium, the smite attack deals an extra 1d6 points of damage (+1d6 against a large creature, +2d6 against Huge, +3d6 against Gargantuan, and +4d6 against Colossal). The smite function may be used three times per day but no more than once per round. The wielder must declare the use of the smite before the attack is made, and if the attack misses, the smite is wasted.

Blade of the Duelist

A potent weapon in nearly any situation, this +2 rapier is doubly effective when facing a single opponent in melee combat. When threatened by only one foe in melee, the wielder gains a +2 insight bonus to AC effective only against melee attacks from that opponent, and a +2 bonus on all disarm checks made with the blade of the duelist. If at any time during the round the wielder is threatened by more than one opponent, she loses these benefits until the beginning of her next turn. Attacks and spells made from a distance do not remove the benefits.

Anyone hit by a bolt of voices must succeed on a Will save (DC 16) or suffer from the bolt's distracting effects. Targets who fail their saves hear voices that seem to whisper inside their heads. Those affected by a bolt of voices must make a Concentration check (DC 16 + spell level) to cast any spells. This effect lasts for 1d6 rounds.

Bow of Arcane Might

This +1 mighty (+2) composite longbow is covered in intricate arcane runes. The bow of arcane might allows its wielder to channel the energy of arcane spells through it to make attacks with the bow more damaging. As a move-equivalent action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity, the wielder can sacrifice a prepared arcane spell from memory (or a unused spell slot if a spontaneous arcane caster). Doing so adds a damage bonus equal to the sacrificed spell's level to the next attack made with the bow of arcane might. This damage bonus stacks with the normal enhancement bonus from the bow and any magic arrows used in the attack.

Made from fine wood by elven hands, this +2 short bow blends music with every shot to deadly effect.

Bow of the Mighty Dragonhunter

This +2 dragon bane composite longbow (+4 Str bonus) is carved from the thigh bone of a Huge or Large dragon (and is thus considered a dragonbone bow). If an arrow fired from this bow hits a dragon, the dragon takes 1 point of Strength damage. Furthermore, any critical hit inflicted on a dragon by an arrow fired from this bow deals x5 damage, not x3 (this benefit doesn't stack with any quality that improves the critical multiplier of a weapon). Thus, a critical hit deals normal arrow damage x5 plus 5 points of Strength damage. (Other effects related to threatening or confirming critical hits, such as the keen edge or bless weapon spells, don't function if applied to this bow or the arrows it fires.)

Burning Battle Gauntlets

Created by the fiends of Hellgate Keep for their tanarukk minions, these +1 flaming battle gauntlets are not actually on fire but are constantly hot to the touch and deal fire damage whenever the wearer punches an opponent.

The constant heat of the gauntlets means that anyone wearing them also suffers 1d6 fire damage per round, making them unsuitable weapons for anyone not resistant to fire damage. Burning battle gauntlets are crafted singly; a tanarukk with two of them is considered very wealthy and powerful.

Dagger of Chaos

This +1 dagger is exquisitely wrought and decorated with abstract patterns and inlays. It bears an unusual curse: If it successfully strikes a creature and inflicts damage, the wielder randomly assumes a new shape as if someone had successfully cast polymorph other on him. To determine the shape assumed, flip to a random page in the Monster Manual and select a creature whose form can be assumed with polymorph other.
The transformation lasts until the wielder makes another successful hit with the dagger, at which point he assumes a different random form. If the new form doesn't use equipment, its primary attack natural method (such as a bite or claw) gains a silvered appearance, and this primary attack counts as the dagger for the purposes of assuming a new form. If the wielder discards the dagger, he remains in his transformed shape.

Evithyan's Blade

This +3 longsword was fashioned in Myth Drannor by the ancient elf hero whose name it carries, then used to fight the drow in the Underdark. Similar to a bane weapon, Evithyan's blade becomes a +5 longsword against drow. Rather than dealing extra damage as a bane weapon would, however, it deals 2d4 points of Constitution damage to any drow it hits. A DC 20 Fortitude save reduces the Constitution damage by half.

Fellstone

This +3 heavy pick is made entirely from stone, and its magical properties give its wielder great power over stone. Earth creatures struck with fellstone must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 13) or be dazed until the beginning of the wielder's next action. Whenever both the wielder and her opponent are touching the ground, fellstone grants a +1 bonus on attacks and damage. If an opponent is airborne or waterborne, the wielder takes a -4 penalty on attacks and damage. Furthermore, as long as the wielder is touching the ground, she can start a bull rush without provoking an attack of opportunity. The combat modifiers given above for melee attacks also apply to the wielder's opposed Strength check when attempting a bull rush.

Fey Arrow

This light, slender +1 arrow has a small point and brightly colored fletching. On a successful hit, a pale glow surrounds the target. The glow functions exactly like the faerie fire spell from a 5th-level caster, preventing an outlined target from gaining the benefits of concealment caused by darkness, blur, displacement, invisibility, or similar effects.

Fiendhunter Two-Bladed Sword

This two-bladed sword has one tip that crackles with green sparks and another limned with a dull red glow. Evil outsiders worry about the green side of the sword, but in the hands of a competent wielder they should fear the red end even more.
The green side of the weapon is a +1 sure striking weapon that forces any evil extraplanar creature hit by it to succeed at a Will save (DC 16) or suffer a dismissal effect, as the spell from an 8th-level caster. This effect functions three times per day.
The red side of the weapon is also a +1 sure striking weapon, but evil extraplanar creatures hit by it are unable to engage in extradimensional travel (as the dimensional anchor spell) for 8 minutes. This traps fiends near the wielder of the fiendhunter, denying them the escape route they may need. The dimensional anchor effect also works three times a day.

Crafted by Red Wizards for their favored warriors, the flamelance is a +1 flaming burst lance that may be wielded as a longspear by a character on foot at no penalty. On command, the flamelance can fire a jet of white-hot flame as Adganazzar's scorcher cast by a 6th-level sorcerer. This deals 3d8 points of damage (Reflex half DC 13) in a 5-foot wide path 40 feet long. The flamelance can produce fifty such blasts before this power is exhausted, after which it is simply a +1 flaming burst lance.

Foretelling Blade

Otherwise unadorned, the pommel of this +2 longsword is carved to look like a large, unblinking eye. Once per day, the possessor of the foretelling sword may roll 1d20. Once over the course of the ensuing day, the wielder may choose to use the result of that roll instead of making an attack roll. To use this ability, the wielder must announce this choice before making the attack roll. For the chosen attack, the wielder simply uses the result of the earlier 1d20 roll as if that were his attack roll.

Frost Brand

This +3 frost greatsword (+1d6 points of bonus cold damage with each hit) does not shed any light except when the air temperature is below 0° F. Its wielder is protected from fire, since the sword absorbs the first 10 points of fire damage each round that the wielder would otherwise suffer.
The frost brand sword also has a 50% chance of extinguishing any fire into which its blade is thrust. This power extends to a 10-foot radius and includes lasting effects such as wall of fire but excludes instantaneous effects such as fireball, meteor swarm, and flame strike.

Despite its appearance, the dagger is as resilient as normal steel until used to make a successful melee or ranged attack. The first successful attack made with a frost shard dagger causes it to explode in a burst of cold energy, dealing 3d6 points of cold damage to everyone within 5 feet of the target.

Gauntlets of the Valorous

Made for the heroes of Myth Drannor, these +3 gauntlets come in many forms, from massive silvery elbow-length gauntlets to five finger-rings chained to a bracelet.

Ghost Hands

These roughly wrought iron gauntlets remain a dull, dark gray regardless of how often they are polished. Despite their crude appearance, ghost hands are a surprisingly light pair of +1 ghost touch gauntlets. While wearing ghost hands, the wielder is immune to the magic jar spell and a ghost's malevolence ability. Ghost hands provide a +1 enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls but attacks with them are still considered unarmed for purposes of provoking attacks of opportunity.

Giant-Tooth Arrow

The drow take teeth from their fallen enemies to craft these blunt-tipped arrows. Sszaral, the drow chieftain, made his arrows from teeth of the sacred skulls. Designed to help them combat giants, the drow do not hesitate to fire these arrows at any intruder, giant or not, who enters their vale.
This black-shafted arrow possesses a wedge-shaped ivory tip. Dark red sinew binds the arrowhead to the shaft.
Firing a giant-tooth arrow is sufficient to activate its magic properties. A giant-tooth arrow functions as a +2 giant bane arrow. In addition, whenever the arrow deals damage to a target, the arrowhead burrows beneath the target's flesh. The target receives a -2 penalty on attack rolls, Reflex saves, and Concentration checks while the arrow remains lodged in her flesh. The target can take a standard action to remove the arrow. The burrowing property does not affect constructs, oozes, or undead. Moderate conjuration and necromancy; CL 9th; Craft Magic Arms and Armor, bestow curse, summon monster I, 327 gp, 26 XP, 1 day.

Whenever such a creature wields the weapon, those struck by it are racked with pain, taking a -4 penalty on attack rolls, skill checks, and ability checks, for 3 rounds. A successful Fortitude save (DC 16) lessens the penalty to -2.

These items are magically bonded to the crossbow, and they disappear if taken more than 20 feet from it. Items removed like this reappear within the crossbow after 1 minute. The gnome's toolkit can also hold up to six more small items such as keys or potion vials. No item stored in the crossbow can be more than 2 inches long or weigh more than 6 ounces. Additional stored items do not become bonded to the crossbow and function normally if removed. While holding a gnomes toolkit, the wielder can retrieve any item stored in the crossbow as a free action.

Gnome Steam Bow

Covered with levers and small repositories for alchemical fluids, and strung with a system of pulleys, this +1 shortbow offers several advantages. The wielder can choose from the following three options, each requiring a move-equivalent action to activate. The wielder can remove any penalty on damage rolls from a low Strength score for the next shot from the bow. The wielder can add his Intelligence modifier to the attack roll for the next shot from the bow. Finally, the wielder can double the range increment of the bow for the next shot from it. None of these actions provokes an attack of opportunity. If the wielder spends the time, it's possible to set up a shot that benefits from all three abilities.

Gray Snare

The rubbery gray strands of this +1 net are tightly woven and give off a tangy, acidic scent. Although the gray snare lacks the hooks of other combat nets, its sticky strands are just as hard to escape. Once per day on command, the net transforms into a gray ooze. If the net transforms while it entangles a target, the ooze is considered to have grappled the target. The transformation takes a full round, and once complete the ooze acts on the wielder's initiative. The wielder has no special ability to control the ooze but can transform it back into a net with a command word. See the Ooze entry in the Monster Manual for more information on the gray ooze. If killed while in ooze form, the net is destroyed.

These +2 sling bullets provide a ready cover for those needing a quick escape and are often carried by rogues in case such situations arise.

On a successful hit, the bullet releases a billowing cloud of fog that fills a 30-foot radius with a fog cloud (as the spell from a 6th-level caster). The fog lasts for 1 hour, although it can be dispersed by strong wind. The cloud blocks all sight, including darkvision, beyond 5 feet. A creature within 5 feet has one-half concealment (20% miss chance). Creatures farther away have total concealment (50% miss chance and the attacker can't use sight to locate the target).

Heartcleaver

Originally wielded by the nycaloth lord Gaulguth, this fearsome +2 vorpal battleaxe is sized for a Large creature. Heartcleaver's blade constantly drips a foul, greenish ichor, which inhibits magical healing of the wounds it inflicts.
Any character attempting to cast a conjuration (healing) spell on a creature that has been struck by Heartcleaver must make a DC 20 caster level check, or the spell has no effect. This inhibiting effect wears off once a creature wounded by Heartcleaver has been restored to full normal hit points (either through rest and natural healing or through magical healing that overcomes the weapon's special power).
Heartcleaver was last seen in the hands of a great hero who died at the Final Stand on the Evening Star, when the city of Myth Drannor fell. It is believed to lie somewhere within the rubble of the city.

Kama of Pure Aim

This +2 kama allows a wielder with great mental fortitude to ignore many effects that would disrupt his aim. Each round, the wielder of the kama of pure aim can attempt a Wisdom check (DC 20). If this check is successful, the wielder may ignore any miss chance created by concealment, including effects such as blur and invisibility, but not miss chances from other conditions such as incorporeality or the blink spell. Although the kama of pure aim can potentially remove the miss chance from an invisible foe, the attacker must still target the correct space. The wielder does not automatically know which space an invisible or otherwise concealed foe is in. The weapon is otherwise identical to a +2 kama.

Mace of Form

This +2 bane (shapechanger) light mace protects its wielder from shapechanging magic and can dispel such effects on others. Any successful hit against a creature not in its natural form forces the target to succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 22) or return to its natural form. This effect does nothing to prevent subsequent shapechanging effects. In addition, the wielder of the mace of form cannot change shape. While holding the mace of form, the wielder simply ignores the effects of all shapechanging magic, including self-targeting spells such as alter self. Note that the mace of form does nothing to prevent illusory changes to appearance from taking effect, so spells like change self still function normally for the wielder.

Nine Lives Stealer

This longsword always performs as a +2 longsword, but it also has the power to draw the life force from an opponent. It can do this nine times before the ability is lost. At that point, the sword becomes a simple +2 longsword (with perhaps a hint of evil about it). A critical hit must be dealt for the sword's death-dealing ability to function. The victim is entitled to a Fortitude saving throw (DC 17) to avoid death. If the save is successful, the sword's death-dealing ability does not function, no charge is used, and normal critical damage is determined. This sword is evil, and any good character attempting to wield it gains two negative levels. These negative levels remain as long as the sword is in hand and disappear when the sword is no longer wielded. These negative levels never result in actual level loss, but they cannot be overcome in any way (including restoration spells) while the sword is wielded.

Oathbow

Of elven make, this white +1 longbow whispers "Swift defeat to my enemies" in Elven when nocked and pulled. If the firer swears aloud to slay her target, the bow's whisper becomes the low shout "Swift death to those who have wronged me." Against such a sworn enemy, the bow has a +3 enhancement bonus, and arrows launched from it deal double normal damage (and x4 on a critical hit instead of the normal x3). However, if the firer does not deal the killing blow on the sworn enemy within 24 hours, the bow falls inert for one week, during which it possesses no magical abilities or bonuses at all. Further, the character is demoralized and suffers a -1 morale penalty to attack rolls, saving throws, and skill checks during that week.

This +2 spiked chain has a glittering sheen, but most spellcasters don't identify it as magic due to the persistent nondetection effect on it.

Since his death, the weapon has passed from gladiator to gladiator, with many unaware of its magical nature.

One Thousand Broken Dreams

This mithral elven warblade is a +3 holy drow bane longsword created by the elven hero Datharian Mistwatcher, a worshiper of Sehanine Moonbow, when dark elves destroyed his home city thousands of years ago. While he fell in battle to a host of driders shortly after the weapon was created, it eventually reached the hands of another elven hero known only in ballads as the Stargazer, who used it to slay hundreds of drow over the course of her life. The Stargazer died of grief after the Battle of Nine Arrows when she realized her sister had been slain, and a young elven archer left with the weapon before drow reinforcements could arrive and seize it. The sword has appeared in the hands of an elf at least once every few hundred years since ,that battle, only to disappear again each time.
The sword bestows one negative level on any evil creature that holds it. The negative level remains as long as the sword is in hand and disappears when it is no longer carried. This negative level never results in actual level loss, but it cannot be overcome in any way (including restoration spells) while the Sword is held.

Any successful hit from the plague spreader can potentially infect the target with filth fever. A target hit by the plague spreader must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 20) or be infected with the disease. The disease has an incubation period of 1d3 days, after which it deals 1d3 points of temporary Dexterity damage and 1d3 points of temporary Constitution damage. See Disease in Chapter 3 of the DUNGEON MASTER'S Guide for more information. Creatures immune to disease are immune to this effect.

Quarterstaff of Battle

This +3 quarterstaff of speed cannot be damaged by piercing or slashing attacks. The wielder of the quarterstaff of battle may attempt to disarm opponents as if she had the Improved Disarm feat, and gains a +4 bonus on any attack roll made to disarm.
Three times per day the wielder can, as a standard action, activate the quarterstaff's arrow deflection ability. This power lasts for 2 rounds. While active, the quarterstaff automatically deflects all ranged weapon attacks (of weapons up to Medium-size) and absorbs any missiles or ranged attacks created by spells of 2nd level or less (such as magic missile or Melf's acid arrow) that target the wielder or any ally within 5 feet of the wielder. The quarterstaff takes no damage from any attacks or spells it deflects or absorbs in this manner.
Once per day, the wielder can create a repulsion effect on command.
Also once per day, the wielder can turn any hit from the staff into a battlestrike. A battlestrike deals double damage (triple if it is a critical hit). The battlestrike's target must also make a Reflex save (DC 22) to avoid being thrown to the ground and a Fortitude save (DC 22) to avoid being stunned for 1d4 rounds.

Rankbreaker Glaive

Created to deal with formations of polearm-wielding foes, this completely unadorned +2 glaive looks like a normal soldier's weapon. When used in combat, its fearsome powers become evident. While using a rankbreaker glaive, the wielder can act as if he had the Cleave feat. A wielder who already has the Cleave feat gains no additional benefit. Whenever the wielder takes a charge action using a rankbreaker glaive, he deals an additional 1d6 points of damage on each successful hit.

Ranseur of Readiness

The magical properties of this +2 eager ranseur make it a deadly tool against charging foes. Any time the wielder gets an attack of opportunity against a charging foe, he may make that attack as if he had readied an action to set the ranseur against the charge. Attacks set in this manner deal double damage to charging foes. Anytime the wielder readies a ranseur of readiness against a charging foe, any attacks of opportunity triggered by that foe are also resolved normally This ability does not allow the wielder to make two double-damage attacks against one charging attacker in the same round.

Sapling Club

This irregular +1 club always has a leaf or three adorning it, and the wood retains the resiliency of a freshly cut branch. By spending a full-round action holding the sapling club to the ground, the wielder can cause the club to transform into a treant. The treant acts as a summoned creature, attacking the nearest foe unless the wielder commands otherwise. A sapling club may spend up to 12 rounds as a treant each day, although the rounds need not be consecutive. At any time, the wielder of the club can utter a command word to transform the sapling club back to its original form. If killed while in treant form, the sapling club is destroyed.

On the round the command word is uttered, the wielder gains a +2 enhancement bonus to Strength. Two rounds later, the bonus increases to +4. Two rounds after that, the bonus subsides to +2, and 2 rounds after that, the bonus fades entirely. For the next 10 rounds, the wielder takes 2 points of temporary Strength damage every other round.

This +1 heavy crossbow is much easier to load than mundane crossbows. After firing, the crossbow's string is magically reset to the cocked position, requiring the wielder to simply place a bolt in the weapon to load it. Loading a self-loading crossbow requires only a move-equivalent action.
If the wielder has the Rapid Reload feat described in Sword and Fist, loading a self-loading crossbow is a free action, and the weapon does not restrict the wielder's ability to make multiple attacks in a round.

Shatterspike

Crafted by the ancient elders of the Tol Gorum during the fall of their civilization, shatterspike is a deadly weapon capable of savagely destroying foes. In the hands of a desperate wielder, this club can rend the earth itself. This Large greatclub is made from a single piece of weathered gray stone, engraved with bands of earth symbols around the base. Up near the head of the club, a carving depicts stone giants tearing the ground asunder.
Swinging shatterspike is sufficient to activate its basic properties. Activating the shatter or earthquake effect is a standard action. Shatterspike functions as a Large +2 thundering greatclub. In addition, the wielder of shatterspike can use the weapon to cast shatter three times per day (CL 12th, DC 13). The most powerful effect of the club, however, requires the sacrifice of its wielder, draining his life to power the magic. Built to be the ultimate weapon, shatterspike can cast earthquake (CL 15th, DC 22), but doing so causes the death of the wielder. This function can only be activated with the full intent of its wielder and no amount of trickery or control can force this sacrifice. This ability can be used no more than once per month. Drogann used this ability while hunting the drow, thinking, in his hubris, that he might survive.

Note that even creatures normally exempt from Fortitude saves (undead and constructs) are subject to this attack.

Spectral Dagger

Fashioned from a bone of a creature that died violently, this appears to be just a dagger hilt made of bone. When a creature grasps the hilt, a dagger "blade" of light appears. (Treat the weapon as a dagger for proficiency, feats, and so on.) The blade winks out when the hilt leaves the wielder's hand.
The spectral dagger has no attack bonus and deals no damage, but any target struck is affected by a chill touch spell (DC 11). Striking with the spectral dagger is considered a touch attack. Creatures with multiple attacks may use the spectral dagger in a full attack action to strike more than once per round just as if they wielded a normal dagger.

Spell Shield Falchion

This +2 falchion is particularly effective against spellcasters. Any round in which the wielder takes the total defense action, spells targeting her reflect back at their caster. This ability works exactly as if spell turning protecting against seven spell levels. This protection applies only on rounds in which the wielder takes the total defense action and is renewed at the beginning of each such round.

Spider's Nest Bullet

This oddly shaped sling bullet consists of a tightly packed cluster of small spheres rather than one smooth mass. On a successful hit, a spider's nest bullet creates a web, as the spell from a 7th-level caster, and releases 2d4 Small monstrous spiders. The spiders move through the web freely and swarm over any creatures caught in it. The spiders do not leave the web and are destroyed if it is. The spiders and the web last for 10 minutes.

Spider Fang

This +1 dagger is black or dark purple. It quickly cuts through webs (magical or otherwise) without getting stuck, allowing the wielder to move through an existing web at half her normal speed (although it does not prevent her from becoming stuck in a web if she fails her saving throw). The wielder can use the dagger to create a web once per day. Once per day it can also create a curtain of cobwebs, a 10-foot-square plane of wispy strands that grants one-half concealment to creatures hiding behind it. Any creature that touches the curtain causes it to collapse upon the creature and deal 2d4 points of acid damage.

Spinning Blade

This +2 returning throwing scimitar is ideal for knocking opponents' weapons out of their hands. In addition to making normal attacks, the wielder can make a special ranged disarm attack with the spinning blade. This functions exactly like a melee disarm attempt except that it does not provoke an attack of opportunity. The spinning blade does nothing to prevent attacks of opportunity that the wielder provokes for other reasons, such as attacking with a ranged weapon while threatened in melee. Ranged disarm attempts with the spinning blade incur the normal penalties for range.

Staff of Balance

Longer and thinner than most, this +2 quarterstaff improves the wielder's sense of equilibrium. Any round in which the wielder holds the staff of balance in both hands and does not make a melee attack, the staff grants a +10 enhancement bonus on Balance checks. While holding the staff in this manner, the wielder can move at his full movement rate without incurring penalties on Balance checks made during that round. In addition, the wielder gains a +4 enhancement bonus on Strength checks made to resist being tripped.

This +2 lawful quarterstaff reinforces a monk's martial abilities. While wielding the staff of discipline, a monk may make attacks using her better unarmed rate. She can use the staff of discipline as a double weapon and still get the benefit of her increased rate of attacks, but she takes all of the normal penalties while doing so.

Staff of Memory

More the tool of a wizard than a warrior, this sturdy +1 quarterstaff can enhance the memory of its wielder. Once per day, the wielder can lose a prepared spell from memory in order to recall a spell of lower level that she has already cast. The recalled spell is treated exactly as if the spell caster had prepared it normally. Exchanging prepared spells in this manner is a standard action that does not incur an attack of opportunity.

These +3 bolts are hollow tubes designed to draw out the blood of the target. Each has a metal tip, hollow like the rest of the bolt, with thin flanges molded to look like the double wings of a stirge. The round after a successful hit, the bolt begins to drain the target's blood, dealing 1d4 points of temporary Constitution damage each round until destroyed. As a Tiny wooden weapon, each stirge bolt has a hardness of 5 and 1 hit point. While draining blood from a target, the bolt has an AC of 12 (+2 size).

Stone Spear

Made entirely from magically augmented stone, this +2 shortspear weighs 10 pounds. Because of its weight and unwieldy nature, the stone spear has a range increment of only 10 feet. A stone spear deals double damage against any creatures with the Air subtype on a successful hit. if a wielder standing on the ground uses a ready action to set the stone spear against a charge, it deals triple rather than double damage.

Summoning Arrow

The head of a summoning arrow is sculpted to look like a bird of prey, and the fletching is always made of feathers from the same bird. When launched from a bow, a summoning arrow transforms into an eagle (see the Animals section of the Monster Manual) and attacks the foe that the arrow was fired at. if not launched at a specific target, a summoning arrow turns into an eagle when it's 30 feet away from the wielder, then attacks the nearest creature. The eagle remains for 5 rounds or until slain, whichever comes first. After 5 rounds, the eagle flies away. It does not return to arrow form.

Sun Blade

This sword is the size of a bastard sword. However, its enchantment enables the sun blade to be wielded as if it were a short sword with respect to weight and ease of use. (In other words, the weapon appears to all viewers to be a bastard sword, and deals bastard sword damage, but the wielder feels and reacts as if the weapon were a short sword.) Any individual able to use either a bastard sword or a short sword with proficiency is proficient in the use of a sun blade. Likewise, Weapon Focus and Weapon Specialization in short sword and bastard sword apply equally.
In normal combat, the glowing golden blade of the weapon is equal to a +2 bastard sword. Against evil creatures, its enhancement bonus is +4. Against Negative Energy Plane creatures or undead creatures, the sword deals double damage (and x3 on a critical hit instead of the usual x2).
Furthermore, the blade has a special sunbeam power. Once a day, the wielder can swing the blade vigorously above her head while, speaking a command word, The sunblade then sheds a bright yellow radiance that is like full daylight. The radiance begins shining in a 10-foot radius around the sword wielder and spreads outward at 5 feet per round for 10 rounds thereafter, to create a globe of light with a 60-foot radius. When the wielder stops swinging, the radiance fades to a dim glow that persists for another minute before disappearing entirely. All sun blades are of good alignment, and any evil creature attempting to wield one gains one negative level. The negative level remains as long as the sword is in hand and disappears when the sword is no longer wielded. This negative level never results in actual level loss, but it cannot be overcome in any way (including restoration spells) while the sword is wielded.

Sword of Avoidance

Also called the coward's sword, this +3 longsword grants its wielder a better chance to avoid mishaps of all kinds. Whenever the wielder takes the total defense action while holding the sword of avoidance, he gains a +4 luck bonus to AC and on all saving throws. This bonus lasts until the beginning of the wielder's next turn.

This power is similar to the granted power of the Travel domain in that the effect occurs automatically as soon as it applies, lasts until it runs out or is no longer needed, and can operate multiple times per day up to the total daily limit of rounds. In addition, when used against a creature or object holding the wielder, the sword of escape grants an additional +1 bonus on attack and damage. The sword of escape can be used to attack in a grapple even if it is not a light weapon for the wielder (see Grapple in Chapter 8 of the Player's Handbook).

Sword of Giant Rending

A sword of giant rending is a versatile weapon, adapting to its foes and exploiting their weaknesses. It gains extraordinary powers by slaying giants and removing their hearts. This angular, blunt-tipped bastard sword has a jagged blade. Its tip glows with a faint and ghostly flame that dances as if touched by a breeze, changing its color as if on a whim. When used to strike a giant the sword erupts in colorful explosions of energy. A sword of giant rending is activated by wielding it in combat. When you attack a giant, it gains additional powers.
A sword of giant rending is a +2 giant bane bastard sword. When you succeed at an attack against a giant, the sword deals an additional amount of damage, the type of which depends on the kind of giant struck.

When you kill a giant and use this sword's blade to ritualistically remove its heart, a sword of giant rending gains greater power. This ritual requires 1 hour. If you remove three hearts of the same kind of giant in this manner within 24 hours, the blade thereafter gains the appropriate special ability. The sword of giant rending retains the special ability granted by the ritual until you perform three more rituals on a different kind of giant, which grants the blade a new special ability based on the kind of giant used in the ritual.

This +2 holy bastard sword is doubly effective in the hands of a paladin. Attacks with the sword of zeal ignore outsiders' damage reduction. In addition, paladins wielding the sword of zeal can channel their positive energy from their lay on hands ability through the sword against evil outsiders and undead. When channeling the ability in this way, the paladin can give up points of her daily healing allotment in order to add an equivalent amount of damage to her next attack with the sword of zeal. The paladin decides how many points of lay on hands to use in this manner after the attack hits. The attack with the sword of zeal is always a regular melee attack, dealing normal damage in addition to the channeled energy from lay on hands. Creatures other than evil outsiders and undead are not affected by the channeled energy.

Thayan Bombard

The Thayan bombard is a magical cannon that can launch a variety of dangerous or noxious bombs. The effects depend on the missile launched. Firing the weapon is a standard action, requiring a ranged touch attack to strike the desired space. (The touch AC of an empty square is 5.) The Thayan bombard has a range increment of 150 feet, and like any projectile weapon, can fire up to 10 range increments at the normal -2 penalty per range increment. If the ranged touch attack misses, resolve the bomb's effect as a grenadelike weapon.
Once fired, the Thayan bombard requires three separate Profession (siege engineer) skill checks (DC 10) to clear, load with a new bomb, and prepare for firing. A skilled crew of four can fire the weapon every round with a little cooperation, while a smaller or less proficient crew takes longer (although a single skilled character can fire the bombard once every 4 rounds, provided he makes successful checks).
Caster Level: 9th; Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, telekinesis; Market Price: 22,500 gp; Weight: 500 lb.
Typical bombs are listed below. Most bombs are single-use magic items that can be triggered only through being launched from a Thayan bombard, although similar actions such as being flung from a catapult or hurled by a giant might also work. A bomb is a thick glass sphere about 1 foot in diameter and weighing 20 pounds.

Trident of Fish Command

The magical properties of this +1 trident with a 6-foot-long haft enable its wielder to cause all water-dwelling animals within a 60-foot radius to make a Will saving throw (DC 12). This uses 1 charge of the trident. Animals failing this save are completely under the empathic command of the wielder and will not attack her or any of her allies within 10 feet of her. The wielder can make the controlled marine animals move in whatever direction she desires and convey messages of emotion to them (in other words, fear, hunger, anger, indifference, repletion, and so on). Animals making their saving throw are free of empathic control, but they will not approach within 10 feet of the trident. A school of fish should be checked as a single entity. A newly created trident has 50 charges. When all the charges are used, it remains a +1 trident.

A trident of warning must be grasped and pointed in order for the character using it to gain such information, and it requires 1 round to scan a hemisphere with a radius of 240 feet. The weapon is otherwise a +2 trident.

Truestone Hammer

This utilitarian +2/+1 gnome hooked hammer is useful as a tool as well as a weapon. Three times per day, when in contact with an illusion or an object that is the target of an Illusion spell, the hammer can dispel magic (as the spell cast by a 15th-level caster, except that it affects only spells from the school of Illusion).

Twinblades Alight

This double-headed battleaxe is forged half of cold iron and half of adamantine, allowing it to overcome the damage reduction of creatures resistant to either material. In the hands of a lawful good dwarf, it glows softly and functions as a +2 axiomatic holy battleaxe. When wielded by anyone else, it is simply a +2 battleaxe and does not glow.

Twin Blade

Each side of this +3 guisarme's blade is etched with the image of a miniscule guisarme. Twice per day, the wielder of the twin blade can create a spiritual weapon (ass the spell from an 8th-level caster). The spiritual weapon has the +6 attack bonus of an 8th-level cleric, and the wielder of the twin blade directs it as a free action. Only one of a twin blade's weapon counterparts can be in existence at one time. Creating the second always causes the first to disappear harmlessly.

This golden warhammer functions like a dwarven thrower with the following additional abilities. Once per tenday, the wielder of Tyranny's Knell may strike the hammer against the ground (a standard action) to create an effect identical to that of the earthquake spell. Each time the hammer strikes a creature of the giant type, the target must make a DC 16 Fortitude save or be affected as if by a reduce person spell (even though that spell normally affects only humanoids).

Vanishing Blade

A vanishing blade is a +3 rapier that allows its wielder to travel short distances instantaneously Once per day, after a successful melee attack, the wielder of the vanishing blade may transfer himself instantaneously to any spot within 800 feet.

Viper Whip

This +2 whip is made of braided pieces of multicolored leather cut to look like the scaly skin of a snake. On command, the tip of the weapon transforms into the head of a Tiny viper. While transformed, the weapon delivers poison with each successful melee attack. The poison deals 1d6 points of temporary Constitution damage (both initial and secondary). Struck opponents must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 11) to resist the poison. The weapon can remain transformed for a total of 10 rounds each day, and these need not be consecutive.

Warrenguard

The hilt of this well-crafted +2 short sword has been shaped to resemble a heavily armored gnome soldier standing at attention. Small characters wielding warrenguard underground gain a +1 morale bonus on their melee attack damage for each ally within 5 feet. Warrenguard also helps its wielder coordinate blows with companions. If the wielder and an ally flank an opponent, the wielder of a warrenguard gains a +4 flanking bonus on his attack roll instead of the usual +2 bonus.

Weaponeater

This +3 club can cause most metal weapons to instantly rust away. In order to activate the rusting ability, the wielder of a weaponeater must attack his opponent's weapon. Unless the wielder has the Sunder feat, this provokes an attack of opportunity from the target. If the wielder succeeds in striking a metal weapon in this manner, the target must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 16) or the struck weapon instantly crumbles to dust. Magic weapons struck in this manner provide a bonus equivalent to their enhancement bonus on their wielder's saving throw. After 50 uses of the rusting ability, a weaponeater crumbles to dust itself.

Weapon of Transmutation

This plain-looking +1 longsword has been designed to deal with foes of any origin. After its wielder successfully hits a creature that has damage reduction (with the normal effects), over the next round the weapon transforms itself, taking on the properties required to overcome that creature's damage reduction. The change takes effect at the beginning of your next turn. Once changed, the weapon overcomes that type of damage reduction for 10 rounds or until it strikes a creature with a different type of damage reduction (at which point it changes to overcome that type). If the creature struck has multiple types of damage reduction, the weapon overcomes all of them. If the creature gains a new type of damage reduction after initially being struck, such as from changing its form, the weapon must change before being able to overcome the new type.
The weapon does not gain any other benefit of the properties t takes on, and it always deals its normal damage.

Whirling Axe

This +2 greataxe gives its wielder the ability to make tremendous, whirling attacks. Once per day, the wielder of a whirling axe can make an attack that has a chance of striking all opponents within 5 feet. This functions like the Whirlwind Attack feat and requires a full action. Instead of making his regular attacks, the wielder instead makes one melee attack at his full base attack bonus against each adjacent opponent.

Three times per day, the wielder of this +4 greataxe can make a special silent attack. If the attack hits, the target must make a successful Will save (DC 14) or be affected by silence (as the spell heightened to 3rd level by a 5th-level caster). If the attack misses, the use is wasted. Otherwise plain, a whisperblade's sturdy blade bears stylized dwarven runes that read, "Let dissenting voices be still."

Death Spear, Lesser or Greater

This +1 longspear is bathed in an aura of negative energy that deals an additional 1d6 points of negative energy damage on a successful attack. In addition, the spear can be used to deliver an enervation (lesser death spear) or energy drain (greater death spear) effect on a successful hit. A death spear has 10 charges when created, and each use of a spell effect uses one charge. When drained of charges, the spear retains its aura of negative energy and its enhancement bonus.

Drow Mission Blade

This weapon is a +1 drowcraft finder short sword. (A drowcraft weapon grants the wielder a +2 luck bonus on attack and damage rolls in addition to its normal enhancement bonus, so a drow mission blade functions as a +3 weapon in areas of faerzress.) In addition to gaining bonuses on various skill checks, the wielder can use blindsight (caster level 3rd) as a standard action once per day.

A favored drow weapon, the hand spinneret is a +2 drowcraft unholy hand crossbow.

This black, whiplike weapon appears to be crafted of thick webs woven through with cruel barbs. A queen's scourge is a +2 drowcraft scourge. (A drowcraft weapon grants the wielder a +2 luck bonus on attack and damage rolls in addition to its normal enhancement bonus, so a queen's scourge functions as a +4 weapon in areas of faerzress.) A character proficient with either the scourge or the whip may employ the queen's scourge at no penalty. Like a spiked chain, it may be used to strike adjacent opponents or opponents 10 feet away. In addition, once per day, the wielder can choose to affect a living creature struck by the queen's scourge with inflict critical wounds, dealing 4d8+12 points of damage (Will DC 17 half) in addition to the weapon's normal damage.

Special Purpose: Slay members of the Harpers.
Dedicated Power: Fireball (10d6 fire damage).
Personality: Shazzellim is mean and dour. It almost seems to resent its existence and sentience, and it certainly loathes the poor quality of care it has received since its forging, as demonstrated by a few nicks in the blade and some damage to the ornament of its cross piece. Shazzellim speaks Common, Orc, Abyssal, and Infernal.

Trespasser (Illithid)

The hilt of this +2 illithidwrought keen tentacle greatsword is swaddled in fine leather harvested from the past victims of illithids. The blade resembles a great black tentacle with phosphorescent green veining through its sinuous length. (An illithidwrought weapon grants a psionic wielder an additional +2 insight bonus on attack and damage rolls, so a trespasser functions as a +4 weapon in the hands of such a creature. When wielded by a nonpsionic creature, it functions as a +3 weapon.) In addition, three times per day, the wielder can gain the benefits of death knell on creatures whose brains the blade extracts on a critical hit. The victim gets no saving throw against the death knell effect.

Ancestor Weapons

When a truly great dwarf passes away, her ashes are often saved and incorporated into some structure or item that either meant something to the individual during her life or is considered representative of her skills and greatness in some way. Dwarves being the martial individuals they are, this object is usually a building or weapon of some type. The latter is much more common. The weapon is then given to whichever descendant of the deceased is judged to be the most worthy.

Since this weapon is intended to be a tribute, such a weapon is always of dwarvencraft quality. The weapon must be made of metal, so as to allow the ashes to he incorporated with the weapon during forging. A priest is always present for the entire forging of the weapon, and must give an appropriate blessing at each critical juncture of the process.

In the end, an ancestor weapon is an intelligent magic item. The smiths and clerics who forge ancestor weapons claim that an ancestor weapon contains a link to the spirit of the deceased, and they believe that the spirit dictates the magical qualities of the weapon, from its basic capabilities (its enhancement bonus and special abilities, such as holy or flaming) to the particular powers it manifests as a result of its intelligence. An ancestor weapon has an Ego score 2 points higher than a normal intelligent item with the same powers and abilities, and it generally resists using its powers in the service of anyone who is not a member of its bloodline.

Like a dwarf, an ancestor weapon has a Charisma score 2 points lower than normal, and even the least powerful ancestor weapons have darkvision with a range equal to their normal vision. Ancestor weapons with ranks in Search gain the dwarven racial bonus on Search checks to notice unusual stonework. Most ancestor weapons are lawful good.

Gharriakha, the Hearthwarden

+4 defending dwarven waraxe; AL LG; Int 13, Wis 13, Cha 8; Empathy, 60-ft. darkvision and hearing; Ego score 10.
Lesser Powers: Cure moderate wounds 3/day, deathwatch.
Personality: In life Gharriakha was a dwarven defender, and the weapon that contains her ashes shares her selfless, protective spirit. It is content to remain quiet and stay out of the spotlight, while offering all the help it can to its wielder. Generally, its only communications are the feelings of encouragement and support it sends to its wielder.

The weapon's personality is best described as fiery - it speaks loudly and with passion, urging its wielder into battle.

The dwarf whose spirit is linked to the weapon was a mighty cleric of Moradin slain in battle with an iron golem, and Zhavak loves to fight such foes above all others. It is prone to giving its wielder tactical advice in battle with golems, which is not always sound. Devoutly religious, it immediately initiates conflict if its wielder does not demonstrate proper piety.

Elven and Raptoran Weapons

Swordbow

The elven affinity with swords and bows reaches its apotheosis with the swordbow. The magical swordbow takes the concept of the elvencraft bow and does it one better. As the name implies, the weapon can transform from a sword to a bow (or vice versa) upon a mere thought by the wielder (a free action). A wielder can even interchange bow and sword attacks as part of the same full attack action.
In sword form, the weapon features a bowlike grip and a pommel that resembles the curving rip of a bow. The blade is often decorated with an arrow. In bow form, the weapon is made of metal, and each half of the bow's arc resembles a sword blade. In either form, a swordbow has the same enhancement bonus. A swordbow's enhancement bonus can be improved as if improving two separate weapons (for example, improving a +1 swordbow to a +2 swordbow costs 12,000 gp, just as if you were improving two +1 weapons to +2). A swordbow may have special abilities added to it (such as flaming); such abilities cost twice the normal amount (again, as if improving two separate weapons) and apply to both weapons if possible. If a special ability is added that can't apply to both weapons (such as vorpal or distance), it applies only to the sword bow when it is in an eligible form (for instance, a +1 swordbow of distance is a distance weapon only in bow form).
Elves typically produce swordbows of the following kinds:
Light Swordbow: This weapon can change between rapier and shortbow form. It is favored by elf rogues. Each weapon has a +1 enhancement bonus.
Swordbow: This weapon can change between longsword and longbow form. It is favored by elf rangers. Each weapon has a +1 enhancement bonus.
Great Swordbow: This weapon can change between greatsword and composite longbow form. It is favored by elf fighters. Each weapon has a +1 enhancement bonus. The composite longbow may have any desired strength rating at the time of creation; the example below has a +4 Str bonus.

Flensing Gauntlet

Villains and vicious characters enjoy weapons that inflict pain in creative or devastating ways. This hideous spiked gauntlet literally strips flesh from its target.
A flensing gauntlet is a ragged-looking, tattered glove and armband of untanned humanoid skin. When the item is activated, the fleshy tatters writhe, and bony hooks sprout from the palm and fingers. It is otherwise a +1 spiked gauntlet.
As a move action, curl your gloved hand into a claw to activate the gauntlets. The effect lasts for 1 round. You can activate the gauntlets up to three times per day.
A successful attack with an activated gauntlet tears a strip of flesh away from a living corporeal opponent, causing pain and trauma that weakens as well as dealing damage. This effect occurs even if the opponent is wearing armor. The opponent takes an extra 1d6 points of damage plus 1d4 points of Constitution damage and 1d4 points of Charisma damage. A Fortitude saving throw negates the ability damage and halves the extra hit point damage.
Incorporeal creatures or creatures of a gaseous nature (such as air elementals) are not affected by this item.

Blade of Fiery Might

Mighty efreeti wizards working on the Elemental Plane of Fire created this scimitar. The Grand Sultan of the efreet wielded it in a legendary battle with their enemies, the djinn. However, a cunning jann rogue working with adventurers from the Material Plane managed to steal the blade from the sultan's throne room and, with the help of great powers, shattered the blade and scattered its shards across the multiverse.
Intact, the Blade of Fiery Might is a Huge (damage 1d10) +5 unholy keen flaming burst scimitar. When drawn, the blade sheathes its wielder in a constant warm fire shield effect and grants a constant triple-strength (360-ft. range) arcane true seeing effect on its wielder. The sword's great heat also deals 1d6 points of fire damage to anyone holding it each round. Finally, the wielder can rebuke or command fire creatures (as a 20th-level cleric) up to ten times each day The blade is also intelligent (Int 11, Wis 19, Cha 22, Ego 28) and lawful evil. It only speaks Ignan, and prefers to communicate telepathically.
As a unique major artifact, the Blade of Fiery Might has no set market price. Even discounting its unique nature, its value as a magic weapon well exceeds 250,000 gp.

Conflagrant

This +1 ignan flaming burst longspear can be used in melee or as a thrown weapon. In addition to its fiery traits, once per day the wielder can use fireball as a standard action. If the wielder wishes, he may choose to activate the fireball use for the day in conjunction with throwing the spear (this attack does not require an extra standard action beyond making the ranged attack). In such a case, the fireball detonates only if the spear successfully strikes its target.

Lightning Sword

The lightning sword is a +2 shocking burst mithral short sword. Used by the Wind Duke Icosiol on the battlefield of Pesh, the lightning sword is the companion blade to the sword of Aaqa. The lightning sword's pommel is a single huge star sapphire that glitters with electrical energy. Three times per day by drawing the lightning sword, the wielder can gain the effects of a fly spell (caster level 9). This effect springs into being as part of the act of drawing the sword.
If the wielder fights with the lightning sword and the sword of Aaqa, he may strike the two swords together as a standard action to generate 30-foot line of sonic energy. All creatures in this area take 6d6 sonic damage (Reflex DC 18 half). This ability can be used three times per day.

Sword of Aaqa

The sword of Aaqa is a +2 axiomatic mithral longsword with a hilt set with six pale sapphires the size of grapes. Used by the Wind Duke Icosiol on the battlefield of Pesh, the sword of Aaqa is the companion blade to the lightning sword. Whenever the wielder scores a critical hit on a creature with the sword of Aaqa (even if that creature is normally immune to damage from critical hits), the sword creates a powerful blast of windstorm-force wind. The creature hit can make a DC 15 Fortitude save to resist the effects of the wind. Small or smaller creatures (or flying Medium creatures) are blown away by this blast of wind. Creatures on the ground are knocked down and roll 1d4x10 feet, taking 1d4 points of nonlethal damage per in feet. Flying creatures are blown back 2d6x10 feet and take 2d6 points of nonlethal damage. Medium creatures (or flying Large creatures) that fail this save are knocked down. Huge (or land-bound Large) and larger creatures suffer no noticeable effect from the blast of wind.
If the wielder fights with the lightning sword and the sword of Aaqa, he may strike the two swords together as a standard action to generate 30-foot line of sonic energy. All creatures in this area take 6d6 sonic damage (Reflex DC 18 half). This ability can be used three times per day.

Specific Magic Weapons of Waterdeep

Over the years, Waterdhavians have crafted a wide range of magic weapons, many of them for use in battle against orcs and trolls. The following is a brief sampling of rare and unique magic weapons found within the City of Splendors.

Axe of Heavenly Fire

This Large +3 holy greataxe sheds light equivalent to a light spell (bright illumination in a 20-foot radius, shadowy illumination in a 40-foot radius) and is considered sacred to Tyr. It was given to Madeiron Sunderstone by Lord High Justiciar High Avenger Deren Eriach of the Abbey of the Just Hammer in Tasseldale.

Bow of Hosark

Carved from an unknown creamy-white wood resembling ivory, this unique weapon has been in the possession of Travis Deepdell for over thirty years, despite the efforts of Elaith Craulnober and others to steal it. No sages have been able to identify the bow's origin, and legend lore spells only produce the beautiful illusion of an elf maiden's face that cryptically asks the bearer to "take care of the Horn of Moon's Dawning." Some rangers and druids who gaze at the bow see a faint carved outline of a unicorn's head along its outer curve, suggesting the weapon is connected in some way to Mielikki or Lurue.
The bow of Hosark is a beautiful +2 distance mighty composite longbow (4 Str bonus). When the bow is held or worn over the back, it acts as an amulet of proof against detection and location. Two times per day, the wielder can add the brilliant energy special ability to any arrow shot from the bow (so long as the total arrow bonus, including the brilliant energy special ability, does not exceed +10).

Ettin Axe of Uruth

This unique +1 icy burst/+1 flaming burst orc double axe is imbued with two sentiences, Ur and Krypt, respectively, and can illuminate its surroundings at will as a torch.
Ur: AL LE; Int 14, Wis 14, Cha 10; speaks Common, Orc, and Troll; 120-ft. vision and hearing; Ego score 9. Lesser Power: Item has 10 ranks in Sense Motive (total modifier +12) and 10 ranks in Spellcraft (total modifier +12).
Krypt: AL CE; Int 14, Wis 10, Cha 14; speaks Common, Orc, and Troll; 120-ft. vision and hearing; Ego score 9. Lesser Power: Item has 10 ranks in Intimidate (total modifier +12) and 10 ranks in Bluff (total modifier +12).
Although one axe head is lawful evil and one axe head is chaotic evil, the weapon is considered neutral evil for purposes of determining which bearers can wield it. If the heads work in concert, which is rare, the item's ego is considered equal to 13.
Fashioned by Lethchauntos the Black and wielded by King Uruth before his death in the Battle of the Westwood, this orc double axe is famous for the endless verbal spats between its twin personalities. Most intelligent items try their best to mislead or distract their host so that she ignores or destroys rival item's within 60 feet. This common trait manifests in the ettin axe of Uruth in the form of nigh-constant attempts to denigrate the other sentience.
Claimed by War Lord Gharl in the aftermath of the Orcfastings War, but quickly interred and forgotten in the depths of Nimoar's Hold, the ettin axe of Uruth vanished during the Siege of the Black Horde, apparently stolen by orc infiltrators. Subsequent divinations performed after the weapon was stolen revealed only that the double axe remained within Waterdeep, suggesting that the Black Horde interlopers had failed to escape with this potent symbol of orc might. The weapon's current location and recent history remain unknown.

Gurt's Greataxe

In the Year of the Icy Axe (123 DR), Gurt, Lord of the Pale Giants, fell to Uthgar Gardolfsson - leader of the folk who would become the Uthgardt barbarians - in an epic battle that marked the ascendance of humankind over the giants in the Dessarin River valley. Gurt's greataxe is said to have been buried in Morgur's Mound until the Second Trollwar, when it was brought back to Waterdeep by Amphail the Just. After decades of obscurity, lying forgotten in the city's vaults, Piergeiron gave the legendary weapon to Harshnag the Grim in recognition of his service to Waterdeep.
Gurt's greataxe is a Large +1 human bane thundering greataxe. It sheds light as a torch when the temperature drops below 0°F. It cannot be concealed when drawn, nor can its light be shut off in these conditions. Once per day, the greataxe can use a chill metal effect upon command.

Magebane

This intelligent +2 bastard sword is made of an unusual black metal, hilt and blade all one piece. Runes of green fire twist up and down the blade endlessly, but the blade does not otherwise glow. Forged during the Seventh Age of Calimshan as a sword of state for one of the ruling mameluks, Magebane was employed to hunt down wizards of the qysar's court who survived the fall of the Imperium. Its last owner was a satrap of Manshaka who died nearly a century ago, and the blade has been missing ever since. Only Keilier Twistbeard knows that it lies in the Blue Alley, a seeming reward for anyone who survives the deathtrap.
Magebane AL NE; Int 17, Wis 10, Cha 17; speaks Auran, Alzhedo, and Common; telepathy; 120-ft. darkvision and hearing; Ego score 16.
Lesser Powers: Detect magic at will, item has 10 ranks in Knowledge (arcana) (total modifier +13) and Spot (total modifier +13).
Special Purpose: Defeating or slaying arcane spellcasters (including spellcasting monsters and those that use spell-like abilities).

Muiral's Decapitator

Custom-made by Halaster for Muiral during his days as the Mad Mage's bodyguard, this +3 adamantine vorpal greatsword is now a Large weapon, as Muiral had it reforged by a renegade of Clan Melairkyn after his transformation. Magic items touched or struck by the blade glow with a pale radiance for 1d4+1 rounds. Muiral's decapitator is still in Muiral's possession, and given the power and temperament of its owner, it's probably not going anywhere else soon.

Spiked Gauntlet of Ulbaerag

This unique +3 wounding spiked gauntlet drips blood for as long as a victim wounded by it continues to bleed. (The victim suffers damage from the wounding effect normally.)
After serving as the symbol of authority in Bloodhand Hold for Ulbaerag and his successors, the gauntlet was lost during Nimoar's sacking of the settlement. The Shadow Thieves found it centuries later, and the Citadel of the Bloody Hand is the gauntlet's namesake. Ulbaerag's gauntlet was lost again after the Shadow Thieves were banished from Waterdeep, but the weapon is believed to remain within the City of Splendor.

Viperfang

Custom-built to the Black Viper's specifications by Hadrhune, making it a Shadow Magic item, this unique black +2 corrosive assassin's dagger of venom has a curved blade and serrated edge. It allows the wielder to use a poison effect (as the spell, save DC 14) upon a creature struck by the blade once per day. The wielder can decide to use the power after he has struck. Doing so is a free action, but the poison effect must be invoked in the same round that the dagger strikes. In addition, the dagger provides a +1 bonus to the DC of the Fortitude save forced by the death attack of an assassin.

Magic Aquatic Weapons

Krakentooth

A mighty trident nearly seven feet in length, the head of this trident appears as a kraken, with its central arms forming the shorter middle prong of the weapon and its tentacles extending out to form the longer, outer prongs. Krakentooth tridents are favored by those undersea races who have extensive antagonistic dealings with land-folk. The krakentooth is a +2 wounding shocking burst trident.

This +3 returning pearlsteel trident has a shaft decorated with coral and mother-of-pearl. In addition, the wielder of the trident gains the Aquatic Shot feat for any ranged attacks he makes with the trident, allowing him to throw the trident at underwater targets without penalty (range increment 5 feet). If he already knows Aquatic Shot or Far Shot, the pearl trident's range increment underwater is 10 feet instead of 5 feet.

Reaver's Cutlass

This +1 wounding cutlass is the weapon favored by the most bloody-hearted of pirates. Its hilt is wrapped in tanned humanoid skin, and it seems to sing for blood as it is swung. If a reaver's cutlass attaches to an opponent, it twists into the wound as though alive and continues to deal Constitution damage each round it remains attached. To remove it, an opponent must achieve a pin and spend one full round wrenching it free. The weapon makes a grapple check as the wielder (even though she no longer holds it) and takes no size penalty.

Sharkdoom Spear

This +2 keen thundering spear is tipped a heavy, four-flanged spearhead with a spiraling blade. Although well suited to dispatching sharks, as its name suggests, it is also popular with those who hunt other large aquatic creatures.
An aquatic creature that takes damage from the sharkdoom spear must succeed on a DC 13 Fortitude save or be affected as by a sink spell (-10 ft. penalty to its swim speed, sink 5 feet every round unless it succeeds on a DC 25 Swim check) for 12 minutes. A creature already affected by the sink effect takes no additional penalty for multiple hits.

Sword of the Glorious Pearl

A +3 aquatic holy pearlsteel bastard sword, the sword of the glorious pearl is treasured by the aventi people, and the Order of the Pearl undertakes quests to recover one should it fall out of aventi hands.
In addition to the benefits, granted by the sword's aquatic and holy special abilities, the sword of the glorious pearl also grants its wielder the benefits of the Extra Turning feat as long as he grips its hilt. More than one user cannot benefit from this ability in a day - it takes 24 hours for a new user to attune to the sword in order to use this benefit.

Weapons Associated with Dragons

Dragontooth of Lareth

A dragontooth of Lareth is a dagger made from a fang of the fallen King of Justice in the wake of Sammaster's Rage and given to an elite member of the Talons of Justice (see page 99 Dragons Of Faerûn).
A dragontooth of Lareth is a curved dagger with a serrated blade made from a dragon's tooth and a gold, dragon-shaped hilt and pommel. The "mouth" of the dragon pommel holds a large ruby.
A dragontooth of Lareth is a +1 flaming burst dragonfang dagger. As a dragonfang weapon, it has the extraordinary property of dealing 1 point of fire damage on each successful hit. Once per round, the bearer of a dragontooth of Lareth can cast guidance as a swift action, in effect calling upon the wisdom of the fallen King of Justice.

Silver Sickles of Soranth

The silver sickles of Soranth are the legendary weapons of a fallen hierophant of Mielikki. Each silver sickle is forged in the shape of a crescent moon. Four pictographs (one on each side of each blade) depict one of the elements killing a wolflike beast. One shows the canine drowning, one shows the canine burning, one shows the canine being crushed under a rock, and one shows the canine gasping for air. The handles are made of duskwood and wrapped in the blackened leather of a werewolf pelt.
The silver sickles of Soranth are both +1 silvered lycanthrope bane sickles. When employed together, they grant the wearer the Two-Weapon Fighting feat.

Sword of Dragonblood

These swords appear to be made from fine steel forged in Sembia. They each bear a number of small tally marks at the bottom of the blade near the hilt.
These swords revel in the opportunity to slay dragons. The more dragons a sword of dragonblood slays, the more it aids its owner in killing wyrms in the future.
The swords are typically +2 dragon bane longswords (though they can be other types of weapons). In addition to those enchantments, they have a special power in relation to dragons. When the wielder of a sword of dragonblood slays a dragon with the weapon for the first time, he or she gains a +1 bonus on any subsequent attack roll against a dragon once per day. For each additional dragon slain by the sword, this daily bonus increases by 1. The wielder can spend any or all of this bonus at any time during a day, using all of it on a single attack roll or splitting it or among two or more rolls. Only true dragons count for the purpose of gaining this bonus - not half-dragons, drakes, dragon turtles, or other draconic creatures.
The bonus resets at sunrise each day, if any points were spent during the preceding 24 hours. If the weapon changes hands, the new wielder gains no bonus until he or she kills a dragon with the sword. Should the sword ever be separated from its wielder for more than 24 hours, any bonus it has accrued is lost.
Nothing is required to activate the sword other than swinging it, but using the pool saved within requires a free action.
Characters can gain the following pieces of information about swords of dragonblood by making Knowledge (arcana) checks.

Sword of the Great Harrowing

When bathed in the blood of dragons, no sword is deadlier against a draconic foe than a sword of the great harrowing. A longsword imbued with sentience and a seething hatred for all dragons, the blade and its bearer seek out dragons to behead - but the sword is ever watchful for a more powerful wielder. These swords, created by the Harrowers (see page 143 Dragon Magic), are mote powerful versions of dragonbane swords (DC 15 Knowledge [arcana]). Seven swords of the great harrowing are known to exist, and all are fully sentient. However, not all are still in the hands of the Harrowers (DC 25 Knowledge [arcana]).
A sword of the great harrowing is a wide-bladed longsword with a fang-decorated crossguard and a ruby inset in the pommel.
The sword glows like many magic weapons, but its true power becomes apparent once it activates its dragonblood consumption power (described below). Then the sword turns bright red, and a whirling cascade of crimson energy surrounds the sword, the wielder, and the dragon they are fighting. Originally created by the Harrowers, the swords of the great harrowing are in many ways similar to the dragons they hate: single-minded, ruthless, and endlessly patient. A sword of the great harrowing knows it needs a strong hand to wield it, though, so it acts as friend and confidant to its bearer, offering counsel and support when asked.
Only two occurrences can put such a sword at odds with its wielder. First, if the wielder refuses to face a dragon in combat, the sword of the great harrowing immediately attempts to take control of him. Second, if the sword becomes aware of a more powerful potential owner, it silently observes for a time, and then tries to subtly engineer a conflict between its current owner and what it hopes will be its future master.
These swords speak Common, Elven, Dwarven, and Draconic.
(Al N; Int 10, Wis 17, Cha 17; speech and telepathy; 120 ft. darkvision and hearing; Ego score 17.
Because it's an intelligent weapon, a sword of the great harrowing takes actions of its own during its wielder's turn. Its actions are generally limited to activating one of its three powers.
A sword of the great harrowing is a +1 dragon bane longsword with two lesser powers that it is eager to use on behalf of its master. Three times per day each, it can use resist energy (20 points, sword's choice of energy type) and remove fear.
But in battle with a wounded dragon, a sword of the great harrowing becomes something much more. Immediately after the wielder successfully deals damage to a dragon with the sword, it activates its dragonblood consumption power. At the end of each of the wielder's turns, check whether the sword dealt damage to the dragon that round. If it did, its enhancement bonus increases by 1 for future attacks against that dragon. If it did not, its enhancement bonus decreases by 1 for future attacks against that dragon. One hour after the last time the sword deals damage to a dragon, this effect fades, and the sword's enhancement bonus returns to normal.
A sword of the great harrowing's enhancement bonus can't drop below +1 (or the normal enhancement bonus of the sword, if improved beyond +1), nor can it rise above the dragon's age category (including the benefit of the bane quality). For dragons without an age category, treat the age category as 1/4 the dragon's Hit Dice (maximum age category of 10 for a dragon with 40 or more Hit Dice).
Variants: As written, a sword of the great harrowing is neutral, an implacable foe of both chromatic and metallic dragons. But the DM can change its alignment and narrow its focus to produce a variant sword that hates only evil dragons (or only good ones). It's also possible to change the sword into another type of weapon. Simply subtract 15 gp from the cost, and add the cost of the new weapon.

Serpent Weapons

Manyfang Dagger

This +1 dagger looks like a normal masterwork dagger, but when it hits, three phantom blades briefly whirl into existence around the main blade, stabbing and slicing the same target, then winking into nothingness again. A manyfang dagger thus deals quadruple damage on each successful hit, or quintuple damage on a critical hit.

Scourge of Fangs

Favored by the yuan-ti and drow clerics of Lolth, this +2 scourge has a handle made of adamantine and five serpentine constructs as lashes. The snakes are extensions of the wielder's will that hiss and writhe in response to her thoughts and emotions. The weapon deals damage normally, and in addition, at the wielder's mental command, the serpents can attack as separate and independent creatures, using the statistics below. If the wielder chooses to attack only with the snakes, she can substitute her own base attack bonus for that of the snakes in their attacks. The enhancement bonus of the scourge ion already included in the attack bonuses of the snakes in the statistics below.
When a scourge of fangs is used with an attack action, only one serpent lash can attack; when it is used with a full attack action, all five can attack. If a good-aligned character tries to wield the scourge, the snakes attack the wielder instead of the intended target.
If a serpent lash is slain, it falls off the whip. The remaining heads continue to function normally until all are destroyed.

This +1 corrosive viper scourge is favored by the Dark Scaled Ones (high priests of Tiamat) in the city of Unthalass. The weapons date back to the height of Okoth, the ancient sarrukh realm located in what is now southern Mulhorand. Most of the existing scourges of Tiamat have been recovered from the scattered remnants of that civilization.
In addition to its normal properties, each viper head of a scourge of Tiamat can spit its corrosive venom up to 30 feet as a ranged attack. A target hit by this attack is affected by the poison of the viper and also takes 1d6 points of acid damage for the corrosive special ability.
CL 17th; Strong conjuration; Craft Magic Arms and Armor, Spit Venom, Melf's acid arrow, storm of vengeance, summon monster II; Price 60,320 gp.

Kakita Katana

The master smiths of the Kakita family claim that they produce the finest blades in the Empire. A Kakita katana is made of exceptionally fine steel, durable and flexible, and is able to withstand the passage of a thousand years. The master smiths use only Hida steel in their blades, claiming that it far outshines any other in the Empire. A Kakita blade is distinguished by its light weight and flexibility, and by the fine lines of bluish damask running down the cutting edge, causing the entire blade to shine with a slight tint. These blades are usually bestowed only upon samurai who have proven their honor and courage, and only very rarely upon samurai who are not of the Crane clan.
A nonmagical Kakita katana has a natural +2 enhancement bonus.
