Description[edit]

A sosmunii lancet is a double weapon. You can fight with it as if fighting with two weapons, but if you do, you incur all the normal attack penalties associated with fighting with two weapons, just as if you were using a one-handed weapon and a light weapon. The lancet’s halberd head is a does either piercing or slashing weapon (player’s choice at time of attack) that deals 1d10 points of damage. Its dagger head is a piercing weapon that deals 1d6 points of damage. The halberd head is the primary weapon. The dagger is the off-hand weapon. A creature wielding a sosmunii lancet in one hand can’t use it as a double weapon—only one end of the weapon can be used in any given round.

If you use a ready action to set a lancet against a charge, you deal double damage on a successful hit against a charging character.

You can use a lancet to make trip attacks. If you are tripped during your own trip attempt, you can drop the lancet to avoid being tripped.

Sosmunii treat sosmunii lancets as martial weapons.

  1. Increase total cost for magical enhancement by 2,000 gp for cold iron weapons.
    This is the extra cost of enchanting only one head. Calculate the extra cost as if each head were a separate weapon.
  2. Unlike the additional cost, the increase the weapon's hardness and hit points are only gained from its enhancement bonus, not its special abilities.
  3. If the weapon has a magical bonus greater than +5 or a special ability worth more than +5, the weapon is epic. Multiply magic cost by 10.
