Axe of Sodex
The beautiful greataxe blade of the Axe of Sodex can be mounted upon any
greataxe handle. The axe-head is a polished silver with mysterious runes
which slowly writhe across its surface. It is a marvelous weapon, but the
weapon has its drawbacks since its power is drained away from other magical
Each time the axe is used in combat it siphons
magical energy from one the nearest magical weapon within 30 feet that has
an enhancement bonus. The weapon from which the Axe of Sodex steals its
power permanently loses one of its +1 enhancement modifiers.
The axe of Sodex possesses a +3 enhancement bonus
to damage and attack rolls. Further, the axe is keen and scores critical hits on
attack rolls of 19 or 20 for x3 damage. Finally, the axe is vorpal enchanted.
Wards have been placed upon the axe to prevent
tampering with its magic. Any attempt to alter or add to the axe's powers
affects a mental storm upon the spell-caster who made the attempt, inflicting
2d4 points of temporary intelligence damage.
