Whispering Wheellock

Weapon (pistol), uncommon (requires attunement)

A whispering wheellock is a +1 pistol of compact construction, with a dull matte black finish. Its slim profile grants you advantage on Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) checks made to hide the weapon on your person. A whispering wheellock makes no noise when fired. Bullets fired from it likewise make no sound when they hit, instead drawing sound into them, and this sudden inverted cascade of sonic energy deals an extra 1d8 thunder damage on a critical hit and deafens the target if it fails a DC 15 Constitution saving throw. You may also target an unattended object within range and fire the whispering wheellock, creating an area of magical silence centered on that location and lasting 1 minute if the target is within 30 feet, or 5 rounds if the target is more than 30 feet away.


Weapon (any thrown), rare

A chaining weapon allows you to conjure a metal chain that trails behind a weapon that you hurl. The chain has a maximum length of 30 feet, and the end of the chain is in the hand that was used to throw the weapon. If the weapon misses, you can retrieve the weapon as a move or bonus action; the chain disappears after the weapon is retrieved. If the weapon hits, the target takes the weapons normal damage and is entangled as if struck by a net, except the chain has a damage threshold of 10. An entangled target cannot move farther than 30 feet from you unless it succeeds at an opposed Strength check; if it succeeds, you can release the trapped creature as a reaction or can hold onto the chain and allow yourself to be pulled behind the creature.

Escaping a chaining weapon follows the rules for escaping a net. The Strength check DC to escape the chaining weapon is increased by an amount equal to the weapon’s enhancement bonus. If the chain is destroyed or burst, the chaining weapon falls to the ground and this property is suppressed until the next dawn.
