wondrous item (bottle), artifact (requires attunement)

The Idol of Hedonism is an enchanted wine bottle that, when used as an improvised weapon, has a +3 to hit. Unlike a normal bottle, the Idol of Hedonism deals 1d6 bludgeoning damage, upgraded to 1d8 slashing damage when broken (by rolling a 6). The Idol of Hedonism cannot be broken entirely. If you deliver a strike that breaks the bottle, the DC save to avoid being dazed becomes equal to 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier instead.

While not broken, the Idol of Hedonism can be drunk using an action. When doing so, you gain a rush of adrenaline, granting 15 + (3 times your Charisma modifier) temporary hit points that last for 1 minute. In addition, on your next turn you may make two additional weapon attacks as a bonus action. However, if you drink from the Idol of Hedonism while having less than 15 Charisma, you become drunk and suffer the penalties of the poisoned condition. You can only drink from the Idol of Hedonism once.

Every time you strike a creature with the Idol of Hedonism while it is broken, the weapon gains 1 charge. Upon reaching 6 charges, you may use a bonus action to cause the Idol to repair and refill itself, allowing you to drink it again. The Idol will automatically repair itself one minute after reaching 6 charges.

The Idol of Hedonism drives whoever drinks from it to seek out pleasure. While it does not change a person's alignment, it strips away their ability to resist their impulses for pleasure. The only cure for this is to no longer be attuned to this artifact.
Destroying the Idol of Hedonism. The Idol of Hedonism thrives off of pleasure. It can only be destroyed if drunk by someone who wants to destroy the weapon as a purely selfless sacrifice. Doing so kills the drinker.
