Chatkcha 8 gp(half for Kreen) 1d6 slashing 2 lb. Finesse, Light, Thrown(30/120), Special

A Kreen throwing weapon with three sharpened ends in a triangle like shape. The Chatkcha can be made out of any material but is often made out of Dasl, an amber-like crystal made from a mixture of Kreen venom and sand. This weapon can be used as a melee weapon or thrown, acting much like a boomerang, returning back to the thrower's hand.

  • Special: This weapon returns to the thrower's hand after it is thrown. The thrower may also try to catch this weapon in the air or on the move, your DM may requires a check for this. The DM may also impose strong wind conditions on the weapon or when using it in tight quarters.

Venom and Crystal

The production of Dasl is a well guarded secret among the kreen and is a very special to them. So special in fact that they almost view it as part of themselves and will not often part with it or weapons made of it. The making of Dasl is done by chewing on common sappy plants and mixing their venom with the chewed plant juice, then spiting it onto sand. However this will paralyze the kreen's venom glands any time they chew it and dose not allow them to use there venomous bite, after a long rest the kreen regain it's use. The Dasl mixture stays soft for about a day and can be shaped by the maker till it hardens. Due to Dasl's composition it must be made into smaller pieces then bound together with more wet Dasl, this still gives a seamless and smooth look but takes time. The time a Dasl weapon takes to make is the weapons weight times 5. For example a Chatkcha weights 2 lb times 5, this weapon will take 10 days to make. Dasl properties dose not allow for it to make longer weapons like swords or wider/thinner structures like armor, if it was ever made like this it would shatter the first time used. Dasl is best used for short thicker blades like wide daggers, gythka heads, axe blades, arrow and spear heads, and morning star spikes. I have changed some things to work better in 5e and general campaigns. If you would like more info I obtained my source material from this book it is 2e so may things are updated but the lore is sound and good.
