Scott's Rise of the Runelords Campaign
The Impaler of Thorns
The Weapon of Xanesha
The Impaler of Thorns was taken from Xanesha’s corpse. A horrible spear it grants a (+2) enchantment on attack rolls, and also is able to release a wave of evil energy, which Variel discovered, but has not been able to determine how it affects opponents. The Impaler’s shaft is made of darkwood, its head a thorn-like, wide-bladed barb. When it makes a critical hit, the blade screeches in a horrific blood lust. Down the shaft are several Thassilonian runes, which speak to its age, and likely evil origins.
