Blade of Weeping
Non-evil creatures which attempt to pick up this blade suffer 1d6 points of
temporary wisdom damage and must make a Will save (DC 18) or their alignment
shifts one step toward evil.
Wounds inflicted by this blade continue to bleed
unless they are proficiently bound (Heal check DC 15) at a rate of 1 hit point
per round. Further, any within 50 feet who view the blade and are not evil
are affected with a overwhelming sense of despair; suffering a -1 morale
penalty to their attack rolls and a -1 morale penalty to fear effects.
Along the edges of the blade are thorns of steel
which protrude out. When blood comes in contact with the blade it is greedily
consumed into the steel and a evil black steam rises from its edge. This sword
was first seen in the hands of one of the Dark One's generals during the war
of the Black Scourge.
