The bastard sword known as "Acerbic"
was a gift from the dark god of strife to the evil knight Valim.
It is a sword of suffering and chaos. Its blade is forged from rare
mithril metals combined with the crushed teeth of infant dragons.
The sword is cursed by the god who
created it. It influences the wielder to abandon their god and join
the dark god. Over a period of months it will shift the alignment
of the wielder to that of chaotic evil, one alignment shift a month
(or lawful evil if the god you choose is that). The shift goes from
law to neutral to chaos and good to neutral to evil. Lawful good
characters will be chaotic evil in 4 months, 2 shifts down in each
category (law to chaos, good to evil).
Abilities: The sword is a +3 sword of sharpness
removing a limb on a natural 18-20 (a critical hit for 3E for the
type of sword). Determine randomly which limb it removes, including
The sword does not gleam in the
light and its blade always appears dull. It allows the wielder to
hide in shadows as a thief of his level (3E: 1 skill point per level).
It also allows the wielder to spread sickness and disease to as
many people as the wielder has levels once per week. The wielder
is immunse ti disease as long as they own the sword.
Note: any paladin touching the sword will know its
exact intent and which god it serves. For 3E this is a greatsword.
