Biting Blade of Ten Thousand Blossoms

Weapon (longsword), rare (requires attunement)

This flamboyant +1 longsword possesses a bright, pink grip. When wielded by a good-aligned creature, the blade pulses with pink light that lashes out at wicked foes. Whenever the wielder scores a critical hit using a biting blade of ten thousand blossoms, a spray of razor-sharp pink cherry blossoms burst forth from the weapon, causing the target and all creatures adjacent to it to take slashing damage equal to the weapon’s minimum damage (so if the sword would deal 1d8+4 damage, adjacent creatures take 5 points of damage). Affected creatures can make a DC 17 Dexterity save to negate this damage and the wielder can exclude a number of creatures from this effect equal to her Charisma modifier (minimum 1). Evil creatures take an additional 2d6 radiant damage from this spray of cherry blossoms.
