Ko• (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Simple Melee Weapons
The Ko• is a simple but versatile weapon of the Kreen. Usually a piece of Dasl, an amber-like crystal made from a mixture of kreen venom and sand. This weapon is rounded on one end and a long sharpened point on the other.
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 paralysis the kreens 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 Ko• weights 1 lb times 5, this weapon will take 5 days per Ko• to make. Dasl properties does 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.
