For the second Friday of Swordtober, we’re showcasing another powerful magic sword from our upcoming module series “The Chromatic Blades”. Each blade contains the trapped soul of an ancient chromatic dragon.
Scimitar of the Stormy Seas
Weapon (scimitar), legendary (requires attunement)
The blue chromatic blade has a crosspiece shaped like lightning bolts and is made of steel that sparks when touched. It contains the soul of Trakkarak, an ancient Blue Dragon.
You gain a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon.
Lightning Blade. You can use a bonus action to charge up the blade with electricity. The charge remains for 1 minute. Any creature struck by the charged blade takes an additional 1d6+3 lightning damage. That creature must also succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or become incapacitated until the end of its next turn. The Scimitar of the Stormy Seas can be used this way 3 times each day.
While attuned to the scimitar and holding it, you have resistance to lightning damage.
The Scimitar of the Stormy Seas can also cast Call Lightning at 3rd level (3d10 damage), and Lightning Bolt at 3rd level (8d6 damage), each once per day.
Proficiency with a scimitar allows you to add your proficiency bonus to the attack roll for any attack you make with it.
The five Chromatic Blades were created by Livi Tombledink after her home was devastated by Tiamat. The gnome artificer forged the powerful weapons with the help of several magic users including drow matron Maricosa Fiett and the ancient gold dragon Augeris the Broken.
Tombledink enlisted a party of adventurers to help her trap five ancient chromatic dragons inside the magic swords. Fueled by the captive dragons within, the Chromatic Blades became legendary tools in the fight against the evil forces of Tiamat.
The blue Chromatic Blade was given to the sea elf Thrandaril Bokinder who dubbed it “The Scimitar of the Stormy Seas”. After Bokinder was killed by Voralis the Pirate King, the scimitar was hidden in the Cavern of the Storm Crows.
