Clockwork Sword

Weapon (longsword), rare (requires attunement)

This magic item appears to be a sword hilt. While grasping the hilt, you can use a bonus action to cause a blade made from metal and gemstones to fold out from the hilt, or make the blade disappear.

Clockwork Strike. Once per turn when you hit with an attack roll using this longsword, you can cause one of the following effects:

  • Flash. The target takes 1d8 radiant damage and must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or be blinded until the end of your next turn.
  • Propulsion. The target and other creatures within 5 feet of it (except you) take 1d8 force damage and must succeed on a DC 15 Strength saving throw or be pushed up to 15 feet away from you.
  • Shock. The target takes 1d8 lightning damage and can’t take reactions until the end of your next turn.

Whenever you use this property, roll a d8. On a 1, the blade malfunctions and you suffer the same effect as the target. When the blade malfunctions, it folds in on itself and disappears, and can’t be brought out again until the next dawn.

Price 2,000 gp
