Usurper's Blade

Evil Longsword that can create and control undead

weapon (melee)

The blade is made of black iron, with gold runes etched along the crossguard. It has an intricate design and a skull pommel.

The blade lowers the temperatures in a 10’ radius by 10 degrees, and causes vegetation to decay. It can animate dead and control a certain amount of undead.


The blade was brought to Baron Armin Strath as a gift and possessed him upon hm touching it. Under its control, the baron killed his guards, knights, and servants in his castle. He later launched an attack into the town of Strathaven, attacking the PCs while they were meeting with Magistrate Corienne at his residence.

The PCs tossed the cursed blade into the Inner Sea.
