Weapon (dual shortswords), legendary (requires attunement)

Thántos is a black shortsword with a crimson-red outline and leather-wrapped hilt; its sister weapon, Vita, is an exact copy except for is white and light-blue outline. You have a +1 bonus to your attack and damage rolls with these magic weapons.

Rigid Blade. Both weapons have edges and thorns pointing inwards towards their hilts. On a successful attack, these weapons can embed themselves into their targets. As a reaction upon hitting a creature with one of these blades, you can rip the blade from its target's flesh, and tear their wounds open, dealing 2d8 piercing damage to enemy.

Shadow of Thántos. You gain darkvision for 60 feet, and if you already have darkvision, the range is increased by an additional 30 feet. This sword deals an extra 1d6 necrotic damage to any target it hits. When you roll a 20 on an attack roll versus a target with this weapon, they take an extra 3d8 necrotic damage. Additionally, you can understand Infernal, both written and spoken, but cannot speak it unless you were previously proficient.

Light of Vita. You can use a bonus action to speak this magic sword's command word, causing light to erupt from the blade. This light makes bright light in a 40‑foot radius and dim light for an additional 40 feet. This light last until you use a bonus action to speak the command word again or until you drop or sheathe the sword. While this light is active, at the start of your turn all creatures of your choice including you gain 1d8 temporary hit points. Additionally, you can understand Celestial, both written and spoken, but cannot speak it unless you were previously proficient.
