This was once the Scythe of Nerull the god of death, but when he died the scythe was lost for a long time until it was recovered by Halaster Blackcloak. But after a few years the Scythe was stolen by an archmage who tried to conquer Halaster. But after a few years Halaster got this archmage and imprisont him by the imprisonment spell. But until now the Scythe wasn’t recovered by anyone.

The Personality of the Scythe The scythe is very old and intelligent. It’s Charisma Score is 20 and it’s Wisdom and Intelligence Scores are both 17. It has blindsight out to 200 feet and is blind beyond this radius. If the wielded wants to destroy it, it will force the wielded to make a Charisma saving throw with a DC of 20.
