This could easily be the start to a great campaign. Hints at an greater story than has been revealed thus far, and the genesis of any number of powerful villains who quickly spread out from the scene of the impact to pursue their own plans of conquest or vengeance.
I would definately add additional drawbacks, such as the wearer has the viewpoint of undead, so life is both visible, hunger-inducing, and induces hatred. The wearer would need to have strong willpower to avoid falling into the mind-set of undead. Go to Comment
Friday the 13th horror, and almost a Garage Sale From Hell item, apart from its obvious utility as a weapon. In any case, it could be the start to a murder mystery, though I expect it would be a fairly short one due to its effects.
