Keeper's Fang Weapon Property
Aura Strong necromancy CL 17th
Price + 4 bonus.
The Keeper is the Sovereign Lord of Death and Decay. He is said to have a vast domain hidden beneath the Demon Wastes, populated by souls that he has snatched away from Dolurrh. A Keeper’s fang weapon has been consecrated to the Lord of Death, and incorporates a Khyber shard into the hilt. If it is used to strike a killing blow, the soul of the victim is trapped in the Keeper’s domain, and the victim cannot be brought back to life using resurrection, raise dead, reincarnate, or similar effects. But all is not lost—stories tell of heroes who have found the lair of the Keeper and brought the souls of their companions back from bondage.
A Keeper’s fang weapon is evil-aligned. The blade or stock of the weapon is engraved with the runes of the Keeper; a successful DC 20 Knowledge (Religion) check allows a character to recognize the nature and purpose of the weapon. Most followers of the Sovereign Host consider the mere possession of a Keeper’s fang weapon to be an abominable act; the use of the weapon is a heinous and unforgivable crime.
Only melee weapons can be dedicated as Keeper’s fang weapons.
