Death's Scythe
9th-level Necromancy (ritual)
Casting time: 1 minute
Range: Self
Components: V,S,M(The soul of a humanoid, which Death takes; Or a gift for Death worth at least 5,000 gp, which Death takes)
Duration: Up to 10 minutes

You incant the one of the ultimate forbidden rituals of necromancy: Summoning Death himself, for the purpose of borrowing his scythe in exchange for the material component. Over the course of the casting of the spell, Death appears, and decides if he is willing to part with his scythe. If Death agrees, he places it in your hands and allows you to wield it for the duration of the spell. You are considered proficient with scythes as long as you wield it.

At the end of the spell's duration, or when you dismiss the spell as an action, Death reappears and takes from you both his scythe (if you or your companions still have it) and the material components used in the spell, before being sent back to whence he came.
