Nox (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Weapon (scythe), artifact ((any) neutral)
This scythe is a duplicate of the scythe of Luna, who left it in the hands of a priestess. The latter used it to brainwash people into becoming followers for The Order of the Moon.
Random Properties. The Nox has the following random properties:
- 1 minor beneficial property
- 2 major beneficial properties
- 1 minor detrimental property
- 1 major detrimental property
Soul Rend. When this weapon successfully hits another creature, it is unable to regain hit points until the end of its next turn. Its hit point maximum is also reduced by the amount of damage dealt. In order to regain their hit point maximum, a creature must complete a long rest to regain up to 10 of its lost hit points and repeat for every 10 points lost.
Night Blight. The attuned wielder of the scythe gains the power to cast the darkness spell up to 3 times, without expending material components or a spellslot. This property recovers use at midnight everyday.
Silverbane. Attacks with this weapon are considered magical (silvered). This weapon emits out bright moonlight for up to 10 feet of its attuned wielder.
Photophobia. The attuned wielder of this scythe becomes vulnerable to radiant damage.
Night Shade. Those too weak to wield the scythe will eventually have their own souls stolen as well by its cold void. When the attuned wielder drops to 0 hit points, they must succeed a Wisdom saving throw of 15 or have their own soul stolen by the scythe, and die, unable to be revived save by the wis spell. They must attempt this saving throw for every one of their turns until they regain at least 1 hit point.
Destroying the Nox. The Brotherhood of light, which stands in direct defiance of the Order, seeks to return the scythe to the goddess, which will then take it from any wicked beings wishing to use it for ill. It cannot be physically broken.
