Spiral Deformity (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Weapon (Lance), Very Rare (requires attunement)
The Spiral Deformity (or simply the SD) is a bizarre, seemingly living lance made of spiralling flesh and chitin that morphs and shifts as it stirs restlessly. Its coloration is a horrid mixture of dark red, green, and black, with multiple yellow eyes along its massive length that seem to sink into the flesh of the weapon when they blink, almost disappearing entirely. The length of the weapon is also covered in mouths with needle-like teeth and coarse bumps and horn-like structures. The weapon 'sleeps' when it is not being used, its spiral shape compressing to be the size of an ordinary lance. Where this weapon comes from is unknown, but it is presumed to be from the Abyss, widely prized as a collector's item for zoologists and researchers of demonology.
The Weight Of Sin The SD is a very heavy weapon. The wielder has disadvantage when they use it to attack a target within 5 feet of them. Also, it requires two hands to wield when the wielder isn’t mounted. The wielder gains a +4 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this weapon while mounted.
Negative Reinforcement The SD will bite the wielder if they miss with an attack, dealing 1d4 piercing damage if the wielder is not wearing Medium or heavier armor on their hands.
Horrid Reach The wielder may expend a bonus action to pinch the SD's southernmost end, causing it to stretch forward in surprise, allowing them to attack a creature at 15 feet, but with disadvantage, unless it is an opportunity attack. If the wielder succeeds in attacking a creature in this way, they may pull it towards them. To determine how this works, count the amount the wielder succeeded by. If the wielder succeeds by 1 the target is pulled 5 feet towards them, if by 2 the target is pulled all the way next to them, if by 3 the target moves 5 feet towards the wielder and becomes prone, if by 4+ the target moves all the way towards the wielder and the wielder becomes prone.
Whispering Madness The constant mumbling of this weapon gives the wielder disadvantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks, but advantage on Charisma (Intimidation) checks due to its weird abhorrent appearance.
