Weapon (Longsword), Legendary (requires attunement)

Storm Bringer is a broadsword crafted from black iron with small bolts of blue lightning occasionally skittering around the blade. Legends hold that it was once wielded by a ruler chosen by a god of the storm, while others theorize that it was forged and enchanted as a symbol of the leader's mishappen belief in their own outrageous claim to leadership.

This magical broadsword gains a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls. Additionally, this weapon can act as a holy symbol for any cleric from the Tempest Divine Domain. Attacks made with this weapon deal an additional 2d6 lightning damage.

'Fast as Lightning'. As an action, your form becomes a torrent of electrical energy for 1 hour. For an hour, your movement speed becomes 300 feet and are you are immune to any damage. However, while in this form, you cannot speak, you have disadvantage on Stealth checks, and you can not deal damage or cast any spells. By spending 1 minute of undisturbed time focusing on your form, you can revert back to your normal form. You may use this once, regaining use at dawn.

'Thunderous Attack.' By swinging your sword in a heavy slash as an action, you send out a magical force imbued with the strength of a hurricane. All targets within a 30 ft. cone must make a DC 16 Strength saving throw, taking 4d8 force damage and being pushed away from you by 10 ft. on a failed save, or taking half as much damage and remaining where they are on a successful save. This may be used twice, regaining both uses at dawn.

'One with the Storm.' While outside in a thunderstorm, you gain advantage on Charisma (Persuasion) and Charisma (Intimidation) checks. Thunder cracks and lightning strikes boost the effectiveness of your speeches or your threats, but can just as easily provide a quiet moment for you at your command.

Sentience. Storm Bringer is a sentient true neutral weapon with an Intelligence of 14 (+2), a Wisdom of 18 (+4), and a Charisma of 13 (+1). It has hearing and darkvision out to a range of 120 feet. The weapon can speak, read, and understand Common, and can communicate with its wielder telepathically. While you are attuned to it, Storm Bringer also understands every language you know.
Personality. Storm Bringer possesses the soul of a fierce warrior from a past age, a hardened soldier who strived for glory and gained it. Storm Bringer is normally calm and reserved, and doesn't talk much, preferring to speak through the actions of it and its wielder. When it does speak, it prefers to lend its opinon to the wielder on its current situation and what it thinks is the best course of action. Storm Bringer is more willing to open up regarding the subject of warfare and tactics. It is a leader at heart, and is always on the lookout for new ways of aquiring gold and glory, and actively requests to preserve anything to do with combat, especially when found in dangerous places that it might find interesting. Stormbringer will not allow its wielder to act dishonorably. Should its wielder act as such, they must attempt a DC 18 Charisma saving throw. On a failure, they are unable to use it. Regardless of the outcome, they take 1d6+4 lightning damage.
