Steal Dreams. When you hit a creature with an attack using this magic weapon, you can attempt to steal its dreams. The target must succeed on a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw, taking 10 (3d6) psychic damage on a failed save and becoming Dreamless for 24 hours. On a successful save, the target takes half as much damage and becomes immune to the effect for 24 hours. The sword can’t be used this way again until the next dawn.

Dreamless. A creature stripped of its dreams takes on 1 level of Exhaustion and cannot regain hit points lost to psychic damage. The Dreamless condition fades after 24 hours and can be cured with a Lesser Restoration or Remove Curse spell.

Proficiency with a shortsword allows you to add your proficiency bonus to the attack roll for any attack you make with it.

Dreams are essential to mental health. They can serve as emotional processing, memory consolidation, self-discovery, and problem solving within a being’s subconscious. When those dreams are stripped away, the being’s mind is less efficient and more prone to mistakes.

Dream Reaver is a powerful magic shortsword that steals dreams from its victims. The weapon is especially effective in a party that can deal psychic damage, as Dreamless creatures can’t recover from this kind of damage.
