Beads of the Tarantula (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Beads of the Tarantula
Wondrous Item, Very Rare (Requires Attunement)
A beautiful beaded bracelet worn on the wrist and coupled to a ring. Houses a jewel of hardened sap, encasing the tore legs of a spider.
Venom Curse: Upon meeting the requirements, and when worn correctly, the ring sprouts fangs that bite into the wearer's palm, causing venom to seep into their veins. The creature must Attune to the ring and fashion its duplicate within the next forty-eight hours. Failure to duplicate, or remove the curse, or remove the ring, will result in 1d10 acid damage every hour. After twenty-four hours, the arm withers from the body and painfully atrophies.
Symbiotic Nature: The ring(s) cannot be removed while a creature is cursed, nor can the user voluntarily end the attunement. If targeted by a spell that ends a curse, the Doppelganger (along with the Beads) shatters, the attunement ends, and the ring can be removed.
To attune to this ring, and avoid death or atrophy, the cursed creature must attune to it for four hours. To gain its magical benefits, the creature must then spend an additional twenty-four hours meditating to craft the Beads and the Doppelganger, which must be worn in one minute of its creation. This duplicate is destroyed (crumbles) once separated from the original.
Arms of Tarantula
As an Action, the Attuned Creature sprouts two sets of arms that function as normal arms would. These hands can manipulate an object effortlessly and can hold items. While natural to the user, it is due to their magical nature that they do not possess the ability to deploy magic items, nor can they effectively brandish weapons or shields in combat.
The arms resemble your own arms and hands, in function, tone, and skin color. You just have six of them now. You can move them, feel them, touch with them, touch them. The extra appendages are ornately drawn with ink, ranging in pigments of earth, to pastel. An Arcane, History, or Medicine check will reveal different aspects of their nature. Knowledge in Abyssal transcript is required to read, copy, and understand the context.
The arms cannot effectively wield weapons on their own, nor do they possess the coordination for unarmed strikes. Conversely, if a creature decides to use the Attack Action, with a weapon, some additional leverage and maneuverability will allow the creature to effectively strike twice. If the wearer possesses a Skill that allows one extra attack, they can use a bonus action to attack a third time.
