Weapon (dagger), common

A dagger which creates illusory wounds for theatrical purposes. Damage dealt by this modestly decorated dagger counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical damage.

Theatrical Strike. As an action, you can plunge the blade of the dagger into yourself or a willing creature within 5 feet of you. The blade becomes ethereal as you "attack," preventing any damage from being dealt to the target. As you retract the blade, illusory blood appears on it and at the site of the target's "wound" which disappears after one minute. An observer can determine the effect to be illusory with a successful Intelligence (Investigation) check contested by the "victim's" Charisma (Performance) check.

The finest theater troupes commonly use weapons like this to enhance their performances. This particular dagger was primarily used by a pair of roving charlatans to sell snake oils presented as healing elixirs.
