Physical Description

This nasty weapon is made for charred bones. The whip is fashioned from spinal bones. The handle is a skeletal hand which graps the hand of the wielder in an unsettling handshake of death. The tip of the whip is a large single fang.

History

The true history of this item is generally not known to the scholars and the wizards of the world. There is an orcish legend, however. According to orcish folklore, this item was created during the thirteenth century, during the Age of Rebirth, an orcish shaman named Turgrak who lived in the Dragonclaw Mountains desired greater power and magical knowledge. Through his magic, he made contact with a greater demon and made a pact with the demon. In exchange for the sacrifice of ten orcish children, the demon gifted the shaman with dark necromantic knowledge and power. With the demon's aid, Turgrak crafted this whip from the fire blackened bones of prisoners. Turgrak used the whip for decades before he died. It passed to the chieftain of the clan and then to a rival clan during a battle. It has passed through various orcish hands since. Over the last few centuries, it has made way far from the northern mountains and now might be found almost anywhere.

Enchantment

This dark weapon delivers nasty slashes with every strike. It also delivers a blast of blinding pain with the lightest scratch. The pain is so intense that the target is often momentarily stunned by pain. Repeated strikes will have the target writhing on the ground in agony.

Furthermore, this weapon is sentient and thoroughly evil. It can move on its own accord, slithering like a snake. It prefers evil owners that will use it often on slaves and in battle. It will attempt to leave or kill a non-evil person that possesses it. It has been known to wrap around the necks of sleeping people to kill them.

Drellis Effect Response

Will not function during a Drellis dominant stellar phase.
