Trident of Poseidon

Weapon (trident), artifact (requires attunement)

Poseidon is one of the Twelve Olympians and brother of Zeus and Hades. He is son of the titans Cronus and Rhea and god of the seas, storms, earthquakes, and horses. The trident he wields was forged by the Cyclopes and grants incredible mastery of Poseidon’s domains.

You have a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon. Bursting Geyser. When you make a thrown attack with the trident, you may use your reaction to cause a spring of water to explode out of the ground under the space you are targeting. This spring takes up a 5-foot square and shoots upward 50 feet. Any creature caught in the spring must make a DC 17 Dexterity saving throw or be swept up and tossed an additional 50 feet, falling from a height of 100 feet. Unflinching Attunement. The trident can be wielded by no other than the one attuned. If another creature attempts to pick up the trident, it falls heavily to the floor and cannot be moved. Dispel magic or anti-magic fields have no effect on this item.

  • Olympian Spells. While wielding this trident, you may cast the cantrip create or destroy water. You may also cast the spell control water a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus until requiring a long rest. You may cast the spell earthquake once per week.
