Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: How does this weapon get into arguments with its wielder? This weapon needs to have a link to a katana, or be changed to another weapon type. Also if this weapon does not use the option madness rules in 5e, what does it use?


You can help D&D Wiki by finishing and/or adding flavor to this page. When the flavor has been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template.

Weapon (Katana), Legendary (attunement required)

This long, two handed ┼Źdachi was forged by a once honourable warrior who broke his oath of mercy by killing an unarmed, surrendered opponent. For this his deity cursed him to be felled by his own blade, then to have his soul bound to the blade. When he did die, by falling on his own blade in combat, his soul violently exited his body in a fireball. Which charred his sword as it entered, giving the blade a smokey black colour and turning the red hilt wrapping burnt maroon. Frightened of what happened, others quickly sheathed the blade and tossed it into a volcano. However, over centuries it merely found its way into a mountain cave.

Tainted Steel

On a normal attack the blade deals 1d12 slashing, doing an additional 1d8 fire damage on a critical. However, the user can sacrifice parts of their soul to the blade to enhance their strikes. By gaining an additional level of madness the wielder can deal an extra 1d6 slashing and 1d4 fire damage. Additionally, after prolonged exposure the soul becomes corrupted anyway. After either 10 successful attacks or 1 hour with the sword unsheathed the user gains one level of madness.





Sentience. Due to the bound soul the blade is sentient and is Chaotic Evil, as such only Evil or Neutral (Chaotic) characters can wield the weapon. It has: INT: 20 (+5), WIS: 10 (+0) and CHA: 25 (+7). It also grants advantage on Intimidation (Cha) rolls when the weapon is on your person. The sword knows Common, Abyssal and the languages of the user; it also has limited (5 ft) true telepathy, but it cannot corrupt when sheathed.
Personality. The mind inside the sword was once kind and compassionate, but as soon as he died his soul was forever tainted. He has long forgotten his true name, instead calling himself Pyre. He is malicious, manipulative, cynical and spiteful; admiring truly evil acts and people. He will try to convince righteous people to commit more sinful acts; such as killing captives, torturing enemies, insulting good people and other hostile behaviors.
