Glabrezu Claw

Wondrous item, legendary (requires attunement)

This gruesome artifact looks like the mummified, hollowed- out arm of a glabrezu. This graft contains an imprisoned parasitic demon that can be satiated only by epic power (a character that has an epic boon or divine blessing or is level 20). To use the artifact, the user must place his own naked arm into the hollow graft, which then permanently bonds itself to his flesh and muscle. If placed upon the arm of a non-epic character, the graft instead devours the limb, dealing 5d6 points of damage and amputating the arm.

Once attached, a glabrezu claw grants the following abilities (all included in the appropriate area).

Each time you take a long rest with the glabrezu claw attached, you must make a DC 10 Wisdom saving throw or suffer the effects of a dream (nightmare) spell. The save DC increases by 1 for each day that passes without such a nightmare occurring. If you use any of the glabrezu claw’s innate spellcasting abilities since your previous long rest, the DC increases by 2, and if you have used the truesight, confusion, fly, or power word stun abilities, you have disadvantage on the saving throw.

If you roll a natural 1 on any saving throw to resist these nightmares, or fail the DC by 10 or more, the glabrezu claw also attacks you as you awaken from the dream. While it attacks you, you gain no benefits from the glabrezu claw.

The glabrezu claw is part of your body, so attacks directed at it damage you instead, but it can be brought back under control by grappling it (DC 18; allies may assist you in this grapple) and keeping a hold on it for 2 consecutive rounds or by succeeding on a DC 18 Charisma (Intimidation) check in two consecutive rounds.

  • Glabrezu Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (2d10 + 5) bludgeoning damage, and if you are Medium or smaller you are grappled (escape DC 15).
