Venom Cleaver, The (3.5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
The Venom Cleaver is a +2 corrosive unholy axiomatic festering wounds bastard sword. It has a long, barbed, serrated blade, which is pitch-black, but shines crimson, and gives a faint red glow (treated as candle light, cannot be shut off).
It has Intelligence 19, Charisma 19, Wisdom 10, and is Lawful Evil. Any nonlawful or nonevil creature attempting to weild it must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 29) or melt. If the creature succeeds on a Fortitude save, they must then succeed on a Will save (DC 29), or go insane. If a creature uses a will save to bend the weapon to his or her will, then he or she dies on a failed will save, or takes 1d10 points of Charisma damage on a succeeded Will save, and the weapon stays the same.
Lesser powers: The Venom Cleaver can use cure moderate wounds (2d8+3) on its weilder 3/day, and has 30 ranks in Intimidate.
Communication: Speech. There is a skull on the pommel that speaks. Otherwise, it uses telepathy. It speaks Infernal.
An Anti-Paladin or blackguard weilding the Venom Cleaver gets special attention from his or her deity. If he or she does something nonchaotic, nongood, or violates his or her code of conduct, they die instantly. However, with proper respect paid to the deity, FULL ranks in Knowledge (religion), and a special favor done for said deity, the deity will allow the weilder to use ''Miracle'' once per year.
