This new magic weapon for Dungeons & Dragons is a red, barbed pitchfork wielded by the warriors of Hell. Its power is tempting to mortals, but it carries a deadly curse.
Weapon (trident), very rare (requires attunement)
Damage: 1d6 + 2 piercing and 1d6 fire
Weight: 4 lbs.
Properties: Thrown (range 30/90), Versatile (1d8+2 piercing and 1d6 fire)
You have a +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon.
Devil Barbs. On a hit with the pitchfork, if the target is a Large or smaller creature, it must succeed on a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw or be grappled (escape DC 12). It takes 3 (1d6) piercing and 3 (1d6) fire damage at the start of each of its turns until it breaks the grapple.
Soul Shredder. Once per long rest, you can sweep the pitchfork in an arc and speak its command work. Each creature of your choice in a 30 foot radius that is not a fiend must succeed on a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw, taking 4d6 psychic damage on a failed save, and half as much damage on a successful one.
Curse: One Step Closer to Hell. While attuned to the pitchfork, you automatically fail your first death saving throw when you drop below 0 hit points.
Proficiency with a trident allows you to add your proficiency bonus to the attack roll for any attack you make with the pitchfork.
The Road to Hell
A Dungeons & Dragons adventure for Levels 10 – 14
The youth of Quadrastadt are in trouble, lured into a cave outside the town by loud music and the sounds of partying. The older, more superstitious townsfolk are too scared to go to the cave. They offer 500 gp for the return of the missing teens.
If you investigate the cave, you find a raucous party hosted by a charming goateed man named Huxley. The teens of Quadrastadt won’t willingly leave the party. They are under the influence of Huxley, who is actually a Horned Devil in disguise.
Huxley and several Imps have come through a portal to the lower plane deeper in the cave and plan to take the young people with them when they return. The fiends will try to lure you to the portal, but attack if their true forms are revealed. Replace the Horned Devil’s Fork attack with a Pitchfork attack.
Pitchfork. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (2d8 + 8) piercing damage and 1d6 fire. If the target is a Large or smaller creature, it must succeed on a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw or be grappled (escape DC 12). It takes 3 (1d6) piercing and 3 (1d6) fire damage at the start of each of its turns until it breaks the grapple.
If you destroy or banish Huxley, the teens of Quadrastadt are free to return home. In addition to your reward, you may claim the Devil’s Pitchfork.
