Rise of the Rune Lords
A +1 serrated (fanged) unholy falchion
The blade of this brutal-looking falchion is serrated, forming fangs for the stylized etchings of a jackal’s profile on the shimmering metal. These weapons are fashioned in honor of Lamshtu and are favored by her most powerful cultists as weapons not only for battle, but for sacrifices.
A fanged falchion is a +1 unholy falchion—wounds caused by the weapon’s serrated edge are horrifically ragged and bleed profusely. Whenever a fanged falchion scores a successful critical hit, the sword’s blade animates and “chews” at its victim. In addition to doing damage for the critical hit, this horrific chewing deals 2 points of Constitution damage and forces the victim to make a DC15 saving throw to avoid being stunned for 1 round. Creatures immune to critical hits are immune to this Constitution damage and the stun effect.
