Living Lightning Gun

Weapon (energy rifle), very rare

This piece of arcane technology surrounds the target with an electrical field that continues to do damage, and may harm creatures nearby. A creature struck by a shot from this rifle must succeed at a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or be incapacitated for 1 round, as the electricity that strikes it jumps and crackles in a wreath of energy about it. The electricity remains surging around the target. On the following round on your turn, it takes 2d6 lightning damage and is staggered for another round unless it succeeds at another Constitution save. The second round after the initial attack, it takes 1d6 lightning damage and the effect ends. If another creature is adjacent to the target on any round it takes lightning damage, the lightning arcs to strike it, doing the same amount of damage as suffered by the target. If the adjacent creatures makes a successful DC 15 Dexterity saving throw, they take half instead. A successful dispel magic ends the effect immediately.

Statistics deals 3d6 lightning damage; weight 6 lbs.; range 60/180; properties reload (20 shots), two-handed.
