NOTE TO DMS: It is greatly recommend that you do not implement this item in the Curse of Strahd quest module. I don't think I need to explain any further than this.

Ammunition (arrow), artifact (requires attunement by a non-undead creature)

In the lands of Borovia, there rules a tyrant known as Count Strahd von Zarovich. Under his cruel reign, there are those who seek his death, and from shadows plot his demise. That is the origin of the Dawnlance. This magical arrow was crafted with the sole intention of ending Count Strahd's unlife. Forged from a shard of sunlight, this arrow carries with it the power to rip undead apart just by being within its presence.



Countslayer. If a ranged weapon attack made using this arrow successfully strikes Count Strahd von Zarovich, the vampire lord take an additional 20d8 points of radiant damage and the arrow is destroyed.

Dawnstrike. If a ranged weapon attack made using this arrow successfully strikes any undead creature that is not Count Strahd von Zarovich, that creature takes an additional 2d8 points of radiant damage.

Recall. When you make a ranged weapon attack using this arrow, if the target is not Count Strahd von Zarovich and/or if you miss the attack, the arrow teleports back into your hand.


Destroying the Dawnlance. The arrow was crafted in hatred and despair. Being tied to hatred for Count Strahd von Zarovich, this arrow can only be destroyed if it is used to harm Strahd, or it can be shattered after Count Strahd's death.
