Weapon Hit Effect
Natural Attacks Claws: 1d10+18 (Reduces Opponent's Soak by 15%)
Soul Blight Forged deep within the bowels of his castle by an unknown smith, the black blade of the dagger seems to absorb the very strength of whomever the wielder desires. The weapon itself deals 2d6+14 damage, while weakening the victim so that evade/hit are both reduced by 10%.
Orb of Putrescence The orb, a swirling mass of black and white contained within, can decay any organic target at a rate of 4d6 per round. When the victim has fallen to a state of death, the magical sphere also consumes the poor creature’s tortured soul….giving the wielder the knowledge and strength of the victim (except clerical characters).
