The Weapon of Pure War (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Weapon, artifact (requires attunement by a worshipper of Nemesis)
The Weapon of Pure War is a powerful artifact sacred to Nemesis. It can manifest itself as any weapon that has ever been used. This form is chosen by the artifact's wielder, and it can be changed at any time. The one thing that doesn't change about this weapon is that its handle is always made out of bloodstone, and the weapon portion is always made out of platinum. Despite its construction, the Weapon of Pure War is always perfectly balanced. It was created by Nemesis herself for her worshippers, and only her worshippers, to use. The weapon's purpose is to spread violence and war wherever its wielder goes. It does this by making its wielder go insane with the thought of killing someone they know or having to bathe themself in blood to stop the craving.
