Solemn: Vengeance of the Gods
(Requires attunement by a good Paladin that honors an vow to the ancient God of Delthrand)
Solemn is a +1 great sword created by the ancient Gods out of the terra firma of Delthrand. It was specifically made for a Paladin to wreak vengeance upon those that desecrated the land. The sword is created out of a single piece of hard grey stone. The wide, double edge blade is roughly hewn and jagged. It ends in a squared tip like an executioner’s sword. Runes are carved into the blade and ignite upon command to provide protection (see below). The rough blade becomes smooth at the base where it is fashioned into a guard and hilt wrapped in black wyvern hide. Runes say Solemn Protector of Delthrand.
- This sword is a mighty symbol of goodness. A creature that is neither good nor evil in alignment takes 3D6 points of radiant damage upon touching the sword. An evil creature takes 4D6 radiant damage upon touching the sword. Each sort of creature takes damage again each time it ends its turn holding or carrying the sword.
- You can use the sword as a holy symbol and you gain a +1 bonus to spell attack rolls while you hold it.
- When you hit a fiend, undead or aberration with this weapon, the creature takes an extra 1D6 points of radiant damage. If the target has 10 hit points or fewer after taking the damage, it must succeed on a DC 10 Wisdom saving throw or be frightened of you until the end of your next turn.
- Once per day, upon command, while you hold this weapon , the runes upon the blade ignite and it sheds bright light in a 10 foot radius. For up to one minute, you and allies within the radius are under the protection of the ancient Gods. This means aberrations, fiends and undead have disadvantage on attack rolls against targets in the radius. In addition, those in the radius can’t be charmed, frightened or possessed by those creatures. If you or an ally in the radius is already charmed, frightened or possessed by such a creature, it has advantage on any new saving throw against the relevant effect.
