Death Reaver (3.5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
This weapon is a vampiric adamantine scythe with a Blade Wave ability. this Scythe is always cold to the touch and has wicked looking black scythe that has its edge lined in a blood red coloration. it has a drastic curve over where it is connected to the curved shaft, the shaft is curved as to allow a full range of motion and still have structural integrity.
the Blade Wave is similar to Mordenkainen's sword but shards of ice are flung instead of a blade of force. when Death Reaver is swung Shards of ice manifest from the blade that fly out 30 feet and strike the enemy once then dissipates. this is a Standard attack, and another attack cannot be made with this weapon this turn, and doesn't activate Death Reavers Vampiric enchantment. the shards themselves strike for 3d4 using the best attack bonus the wielder has, this attack is treated as a ranged thrown weapon.
The Death Reaver was said to be made by a legendary blacksmith who was said to have made this weapon for a group of weapons masters who consisted of 7 experts in their specific weapons. this was made for a paladin who had worshiped not the god of death but the reaper him self, after a near death experience where he had met the reaper face to face just to be brought back to the living. it is said that the blade is modeled after the scythe that reaper himself had carried. the paladin was said to have taken up the role of a Grayguard and fallowed only the belief that he was spared by the reaper to do his work in ridding the world of the evils of necromancy which caused his lord and master many troubles dealing with the death eluding litches and vampires. the paladin had been said to have killed himself with what little will he had left as he was bitten by a vampire. His scythe was recovered by one of his allies and has been passed down through a group of Reaper worshipers.
It is said that there are a few blacksmiths who have had the privilege to have examined the Weapon and understand it to the point of recreation. though few and far between there are stories of blacksmiths who were apprentices of those original smiths and have inherited the making of the Scythe themselves.
