Kissing Blade of Tik’mbesi

Weapon (dagger), legendary (requires attunement by a creature of non-good alignment)

Crafted while orcs still thrived on Midgard, by a great mage whose name it bears, this roughly serrated, single-edged knife made of snowflake obsidian was used by orc priests of the White Goddess to torture captives while they lived, and then to finish skinning, jointing, and boning them after they died. The knife bites deeply, but so painlessly that living creatures it harms often don’t realize how injured they are.

You gain a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls while wielding this weapon. When you hit a living creature with it, it deals an extra 10 (3d6) slashing damage that bypasses any resistance your target has to slashing damage, and you have advantage on Charisma (Intimidation) and Charisma (Persuasion) checks against the injured creature for 1 minute. This benefit ends early if you attack a different target.
