The Tormentor’s Blade
Weapon (longsword), rare (requires attunement)
This magic longsword was once wielded by a malevolent warlord named Malakar the Tormentor, whose thirst for power was matched only by his ruthlessness. Malakar was known for his sadistic methods of torture and his insatiable desire to subjugate all who opposed him.
Menacing Presence: While holding the Tormentor’s Blade, you gain advantage on Intimidation checks.
Torturous Strikes: On a successful hit with the Tormentor’s Blade, the target must make a Wisdom saving throw (DC 15), taking an additional 2d6 psychic damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. This ability can be used once per turn.
Shadow Veil: Once per day, you can command the Tormentor’s Blade to shroud you in an eerie, protective shadowy aura. You gain advantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks and resistance to all damage except radiant damage for 1 minute.
Proficiency with a longsword allows you to add your proficiency bonus to the attack roll for any attack you make with it.
Legend tells of an ancient and malevolent warlord named Malakar the Tormentor, whose thirst for power was matched only by his ruthlessness. As he conquered kingdom after kingdom, his reign of terror spread far and wide, leaving destruction and suffering in its wake. Malakar was known for his sadistic methods of torture and his insatiable desire to subjugate all who opposed him.
It is said that during one fateful battle, Malakar encountered a mysterious figure known as the Shadow Weaver. The enigmatic being offered Malakar a blade forged from pain and darkness, promising him unparalleled power and the means to torment his enemies in perpetuity. Malakar accepted the offer without hesitation.
The Tormentor’s Blade was born from the Shadow Weaver’s dark magic. Its blade, crafted from an obsidian-like material with blood red flecks running through it. The golden hilt was adorned with intricate designs reminiscent of twisted thorns, and the pommel held a green gem that radiated an otherworldly aura.
As Malakar wielded the cursed sword, its wicked power became intertwined with his own essence. The Tormentor’s Blade amplified his sadistic nature and fueled his insidious desires. With each torturous strike, the sword inflicted both physical and spiritual torment on his victims.
Malakar’s reign of terror persisted until a band of brave heroes rose against him. Guided by a prophecy and driven by the hope of freeing the lands from his tyranny, they clashed with the warlord in a climactic battle. The heroes’ combined strength and unyielding spirit managed to overcome Malakar’s forces.
In the final confrontation, a valiant warrior named Xaleria struck a fatal blow against Malakar, severing his hold on the mortal plane. As the warlord fell, the Tormentor’s Blade vanished into the shadows, lost to history once more.
Since then, the Tormentor’s Blade has become a relic of infamy, whispered about in dark corners and feared by those who know its twisted legacy. The sword’s whereabouts remain a mystery, but its malevolent power still lingers, waiting for a new wielder to unleash its torment upon the world once again.
