The Deep Shadows are an assassins guild that operates in the Underdark communities near the drow city Y’leylon. Its highest level members earn a dagger of silence to aid in silent assassinations.
When activated, the daggers are especially effective against spellcasters whose spells have verbal components or creatures that deal thunder damage.The Deep Shadows also find the silence feature useful for hiding the death screams of their targets.
If a dagger of silence falls into the hands of someone not affiliated with the guild, the Deep Shadows will kill as many people as it takes to get it back.
Dagger of Silence
Weapon (dagger), very rare (requires attunement)

Silent Killer. While you are holding the dagger, you can use an action to cast the silence spell (Basic Rules, pg. 275) with the following changes: The 20-foot-radius sphere of silence is centered on the dagger. While attuned to the dagger, you can hear while inside the silence sphere but you can not produce sound, including the verbal component of a spell. This property can be used no more than twice per day.
Proficiency with a dagger allows you to add your proficiency bonus to the attack roll for any attack you make with it.
