Ritual Dagger

Weapon (dagger), rare

This wickedly curved blade is set with black sapphires. You get a +1 bonus on attack rolls and damage rolls with this magic weapon.

  • Reviving Plunge. You can plunge the dagger into the heart of an unconscious creature at 0 hit points within 5 feet as an action; this causes no damage, but instead awakens the creature, who gains temporary hit points equal to half its hit point maximum. The pain of the dagger in the creature’s heart gives the creature disadvantage on attack rolls and ability checks. If the creature is reduced to 0 hit points again while the dagger remains in its heart, it immediately suffers a death saving throw failure. If the dagger is removed (an action), the creature loses all its temporary hit points. The dagger can’t grant temporary hit points again until the next dawn.
  • Interrogating Plunge. The dagger can also be thrust into the heart of a corpse as an action. While the dagger is in the corpse, the corpse is animated as if by the speak with dead spell until the dagger is removed or it remains embedded for 10 minutes.
