Brazen Scimitar

Weapon (scimitar), artifact (requires attunement)

When the last plates of brass were placed, forming the upper walls of the City of Brass, the Sultan thrust his gauntleted hand and scimitar fully into the still burning elemental furnaces. The molten brass fused with the gauntlet and blade, melting them and reforming them fully of brass. The Sultan removed them from the fires and exclaimed, “He who rules the Brazen Scimitar, rules the City of Brass.”

Magic Weapon. The Brazen Scimitar is a magic weapon that grants a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it. Eternal flames dance along the blade but don’t harm you. When you hit a creature with this magic weapon, it deals an extra 4d6 fire damage to any target it hits. If the target is an elemental, the target takes an extra 2d6 fire damage.

Spells. The scimitar has 6 charges and regains 1d4 + 2 expended charges daily at dawn. You can use an action and expend 1 or more charges to cast one of the following spells (save DC 18) from it: flame strike (3 charges), flaming sphere (3rd-level; 2 charges), fire shield (2 charges), or protection from energy (1 charge).

You can also use an action to cast the continual flame spell from the orb without using any charges.

Bound to the City of Brass. The Brazen Scimitar is formed from the same molten brass as the City of Brass and is bound to the city. If it is removed from the City of Brass, it becomes a nonmagical scimitar until it has been returned to the city and stays there for 24 hours. If in the hands of the Great Sultan, the Brazen Scimitar remains magical even outside of the City of Brass.

Destroying the Brazen Scimitar. The Brazen Scimitar is made of living brass and repairs any damage done to it, no matter how severe. If the scimitar is destroyed while outside the City of Brass, it is reforged anew the next day at dawn out of the Throne of Brass. To destroy the Brazen Scimitar, a descendant of the previous Sultan and Sultana, must coat the scimitar in the blood of the dying Great Sultan before plunging the blade into the Throne of Brass.
