Sword of Princes and Princesses

Weapon (shortsword), legendary (requires attunement)

This sword has a blade of a bluish metal with nursery rhymes engraved on it. If you are a halfling or human or elf child, you have a +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls with this weapon. Otherwise you have a –1 penalty to attack and damage rolls with it.

Powers. The sword has the following abilities:

  • It can cast locate object once per hour. It will only use this ability to seek the Sword of Kings and Queens until it finds it.
  • It can cast light once per day.
  • Within a 10 ft. radius, the sword can change the ambient temperature up to 10 degrees per round up to a maximum of 50 degrees. This power can be used once per week and lasts up to an hour.
  • The sword can cast sanctuary once per week with a save DC of 18.
  • While you wield the sword, you are under the continuous effects of feather fall and water walk.

Sentience. The sword has an Intelligence of 12, a Wisdom of 10, and a Charisma of 16. It has frequent mood swings as it communicates its desires to find its parent sword and to engage in tomfoolery.

Curse. Like its parent sword, this sword initially carries a curse. This curse can only be removed by a wish or by the method described below.

The effect of the curse is two-fold. First, it causes you fear whenever you enter combat. If you fail a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw, you will run from the combat. You may repeat the saving throw at the end of each of your turns, ending the effect on a success. If you succeed on the saving throw, the sword will fall out of your hand every other round of combat, quivering on the ground (the sword itself trembles with fear). This curse can be lifted permanently by striking it with the blade of the un-cursed parent sword (spanking it).
