Adventures in Thary
Lesser Dark Edge
The result of fragmenting the power of the legendary Sword Dark Edge, a Lesser Dark Edge only exists when a shard of Dark Edge has been used to increase a creature’s abilities. That creature not only becomes more powerful but they also immediately gain proficiency with, and gain the weapon, Lesser Dark Edge. At no time can more then twenty of these weapons exist and a creature cannot gain more copies of the weapon by gaining more edges of the cursed blade. The sword functions as a +5 Vorpal greatsword. Also, by spending a full round action the turn after killing a victim, the wielder of a Lesser Dark Edge can draw the victims soul into a black pearl set on the pommel. Only the owner of the sword can remove the pearl, but after being removed the pearl, and the soul, can be used as the owner sees fit (giving the pearl to someone, or it being stolen, does not cause the soul inside to disappear). After being removed a new pearl must be replaced to make use of this soul stealing ability. The new pearl must be at least 3000 GP in value.
