Blade of Vengeance

Magic Item – Uncommon

A silver-plated blade, this sword seems finely-crafted, yet hardly unique, almost as if hiding its strength within itself.

Use/Details

Blade of Vengeance

You gain a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon.

Curse. This sword is cursed and possessed by a vengeful spirit. Becoming attuned to it extends the curse to you. As long as you remain cursed, you are unwilling to part with the sword, keeping it on your person at all times. While attuned to this weapon, you have
disadvantage on attack rolls made with weapons other than this one.

In addition, while the sword is on your person, you must succeed on a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw whenever you take damage in combat. On a failed save, you must attack the creature that damaged you until you drop to 0 hit points or it does, or until you can’t reach the creature to make a melee attack against it.

You can break the curse in the usual ways. Alternatively, casting banishment on the sword forces the vengeful spirit to leave it. The sword then becomes a +1 weapon with no other properties.

History

This specific Blade of Vengeance was created when the wraith of Councilor Mana Rockcatcher was cursed to attack Vorlos Direfist. Upon entering into the blade, the spirit sought vengeance upon Councilor Tahitoa Sharpclaw.

When Vorlos struck down Sharpclaw within his own chambers, during the councilor’s use of the Wondial Amulet, Rockcatcher’s spirit was satisfied in its vengeance, and the weapon became simply a magic, yet silvered, sword.
