Sword of Unquenchable Thirst
The Sword of Unquenchable Thirst is a +5 Chaotic (+2d6 damage against Lawful) longsword. The sword is intelligent and cursed. Yesterday’s fantasy writing prompts feature just such a sword; Leslie suggested that I use the sword for today’s roleplaying homebrewed weapon.
- Charisma: 18 (+4)
- Intelligence: 14 (+2)
- Wisdom: 11 (+1)
The Sword of Unquenchable Thirst possess the soul of a Chaotic Evil entity that seeks to defeat and slay all things it encounters. However, it is aware that it needs a wielder and will safeguard the wielder to ensure that the cursed blade can continue to taste blood. In doing so, the sword grants the wielder certain privileges. These include the Improved Initiative feat, the ability to see Invisible at will, and as long as (s)he is wielding the sword, the PC does not have to breathe and is therefore unaffected by any such condition of drowning, suffocation, etc.
As the sword is cursed, the privileges bestowed are but one side of the coin. Anonymity comes to the wielder of the Sword of Unquenchable Thirst. No one knows the PC’s name or recognizes him/her. If the Player Character wishes to defy the blade’s thirst for blood, they must succeed on a Willpower Save of DC 20. The frequency of such checks is at the Dungeon Master’s discretion.
The Sword of Unquenchable Thirst speaks three languages: Common, Dwarven, and Abyssal.
