Flint Sickle

Flint Sickle

The dark priest stalked the slums, killing in a pattern only he understood.  When he was finally confronted by the Order of Three Oaths in his ramshackle temple, a few of the knights laughed at his stone sickle.  The laughing ended when the first squire to reach him went down in a spray of blood.

The dark priest was killed, but the flint sickle skittered across the blood slicked floor and was lost.

Uranus’ Sickle

This item is ancient, as old as the world itself, a simple sickle carved from a single piece of flint.  It seems fragile but is essentially indestructible.  When picked up, it seems very heavy at first but then it rests comfortably in the hand.

Uranus’ Sickle is a +1 keen sickle, by taking a point of Constitution damage it can be given the flaming, frost or shocking quality for ten minutes, and by taking a point of Constitution drain it can be set as a bane weapon against any target the bearer wishes for as long as they possess the weapon or until they change it be spending another point of Constitution.

The only way to recover the Constitution lost to the drain is to sacrifice one of the wielder’s children to the weapon and each time this is done, the Sickle gains an additional +1 damage bonus while wielded by that owner.
