Dagger of Rot
Death does not come quickly to all
It has no power now, but when it did this dagger was one of most famous weapons in the whole realm. Legends say it was the blade that Furtha The Uncharitable used to inflict the Zombie Rot on the last queen of the Angors. Yes, thats right the queen who’s body rotted apart as if she was dead, whilst she was alive, her every living moment an agony of pain and suffering. Even though she was hated by many, I still say that what that dagger did to her should not be inflicted on anyone…ever…
Mechanics & Inner Workings
There are many tales regarding how to charge up the Dagger. Most of them involve a ritual sacrifice, but all agree that one of the primary components is a cleric or other holy person associated with healing. The ritual corrupts the persons essence, flipping it from healing to the leprosy/zombification, and is then drawn out into the dagger. One tale says that there is a way of making this effect permanent if it can be used on the avatar or other physical representation of a supernatural beaing associated with healing.
UnPowered If the Dagger of Rot is currently unpowered it can easily be destroyed. However, the remains must be treated as though they was hazardous materials and could potentially infect those who seek to remove them from the blade.
