Campaign Notes: Regarded as the signature weapon of the Darkfire Thieves Guild, this nasty little knife is cause enough for most authorities to immediately arrest the owner. The Darkfire Guild members use this to 'write' on their slaves and sacrifices and to inscribe their guild ranking into their own flesh. This item is given to Darkfire Guild Thieves and Darkfire Guild Wizards as part of their PrC progression.
