Prongs of the Black

Weapon (long sword), legendary (requires attunement)

These plainly wrapped longswords appear ordinary, but upon closer examination, beads of black ooze can be seen writhing around their surface. 

These longswords contain the essence of a trapped elder ooze. 

You gain a +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with these magic weapons. The Prongs of the Black have 4 charges. They regain 1d4 expended charges every day at dawn. In addition to the standard longsword properties, the Prongs of the Black each have the light property. You must be wielding both swords to gain their effects.

  • Onyx Kiss. The Prongs of the Black each do an additional 1d4 acid damage.
  • Pudding Touch. When you hit a target with the Prongs of the Black, you may spend 1 charge. If you do, nonmagical armor worn by the target is partly dissolved and takes a permanent and cumulative ?1 penalty to the AC it offers. The armor is destroyed if the penalty reduces its AC to 10.
  • Whip of the Black. At the start of your turn, you may spend 1 charge to increase the reach of the Prongs of the Black by 10 feet.
  • Corrosive Retaliation. When you are hit with a melee attack, you may use your reaction to spend 2 charges. If you do, all creatures within 5 feet of you take 4d8 acid damage.
