Black Crystal Razor has a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon. It has the following additional properties.

Devour Soul Whenever you use it to reduce a creature to 0 hit points, the sword slays the creature devours its soul, unless it is a construct or an undead. A creature whose soul has been devoured by Black Crystal Razor can be restored to life only by a wish spell. When it devours a soul, Black Crystal Razor grants you temporary hit points equal to the slain creature's hit point maximum. These hit points fade after 24 hours. As long as these temporary hit points last and you keep Black Crystal Razor in hand, you have advantage on Black Crystal Razor rolls, saving throws, and ability checks.

If you hit an undead with this weapon, you take 3d10 necrotic damage and the target regains 3d10 hit points. If this necrotic damage reduces you to 0 hit points, Black Crystal Razor devours your soul.

Soul Hunter While you hold the weapon. you are aware of the presence of Tiny or larger creatures within 60 feet of you that aren't constructs or undead. You also can't be charmed or frightened. Black Crystal Razor can cast the haste spell on you once per day. It decides when to cast the spell and maintains concentration on it so that you don't have to.

Sentients Black Crystal Razor is a sentient chaotic neutral weapon with an Intelligence of 17, a Wisdom of 10, and a Charisma of 19. It has hearing and darkvision out to a range of 120 feet. The weapon can speak, read, and understand Common, and can communicate with its wielder telepathically. Its voice is deep and echoing. While you are attuned to it, Black Crystal Razor also understands every language you know.

Personality Black Crystal Razor speaks with an imperious tone, as though accustomed to being obeyed. The sword's purpose is to consume souls. It doesn't care whose souls it eats, including the wielder's. The sword believes that all matter and energy sprang from a void of negative energy and will one day return to it. Black Crystal Razor is meant to hurry that process along.

Despite its nihilism, Black Crystal Razor feels a strange kinship to Wave and Whelm, two other weapons locked away under White Plume Mountain. It wants the three weapons to be united again and wielded together in combat, even though it violently disagrees with Whelm and finds Wave tedious.

Black Crystal Razor hunger for souls must be regularly fed. If the sword goes three days or more without consuming a soul, a conflict between it and its wielder occurs at the next sunset.
