  • Transform. A creature attuned to the quicksilver fox can speak its command word to transform the fox into a melee weapon or shield or back to its true form. Its statistics are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. While in the form of a melee weapon or shield, the quicksilver fox can’t move, take any actions, reactions, or manipulate objects. Attacks made with this weapon count as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage.
  • Elusive. The quicksilver fox doesn’t provoke opportunity attacks when it moves out of an enemy’s reach.
  • Keen Senses (true Form Only). The quicksilver fox has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks.
  • Magic Weapons. The quicksilver fox’s weapon attacks are magical.
  • Return (weapon or shield Form Only). A creature attuned to the fox can speak its second command word to call the transformed fox. If the fox is within 100 feet of the creature and there is a clear path, the weapon or shield flies quickly into that creature’s outstretched hand.


  • Bite (true Form Only). Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d4 + 3) piercing damage.


Legendary devices capable of transforming into the finest weapons or shields, quicksilver foxes are deadly weapons and loyal companions in one. These sleek fox-like constructs are plated with silver and adorned with eyes of gemstone or stained glass. Said to have been first requisitioned by a famous bard who felt his weapon “lacked personality,” the spirited quicksilver fox has become coveted among adventurers, wielded by many a famous ranger and rogue. As playful off the battlefield as their animal inspirations, these free-spirited creatures seem to thrive on excitement, seeking adventure and action wherever possible.

Shifting Blade. The silver plating that makes up the bodies of these creatures can shift to take on the form of any weapon or shield desired by its master, its gemstone eyes always finding a place of adornment on its new form. This, coupled with the fox’s keen strategic battle sense, makes them coveted tools of war.
