Scorpion Daggers

By:

A simple knife, designed to hold its poison far longer than a blade with poison simply smeared over it.

Full Item Description

The majority of Scorpion Daggers are simple, thick bladed knives, with small perforations barely visible slightly up from the edge. A small handful have been made for more well-to-do clientele, and are fancier.

The blade itself has been drilled to allow passage of fluid from a chamber within the hollowed handle, controlled by a screw twisted by fore-finger and thumb. 

History

Comissioned first by the Desert Rangers of Pelenor, who sought a sidearm with effect against the strange beasts of the deserts, the Scorpion dagger has spread slowly through the lands, mostly in the hands of those described as ‘undesirables’.

A variety of poisons, potions, and other unpleasant concoctions may be contained in any given knife, and when found on any who do not bear the authority of the government in one form or another, suspicion of roguedom or assassins always springs to mind.

Excellent non magical weapons. It has some backstory and origin. It is an effective piece.

       By: ilya

While traversing the tractless deserts of Shezmu, the pc's come across a travelling caravan led by Vual, the Demon-Camel, the Lord of Lust, the Thrice-Humped...Vual is cursed to only be able to assume one form outside the Abyss, that of a rather large, golden-skinned three-humped camel,with a frog-like, black, barbed tongue......

Vual is the demonic manifestation of Lust...his followers, a cult of truly disturbed individuals, engage in bizarre orgies, travelling the desert towns, "entertaining" the desert folk with their perverse antics...

Vual's Rapture is what the cultists call their monthly festival, where they perform perverse rites to honor Vual...ofcourse folk come from great distances to witness the festivals, despite themselves, and the Cult of Vual welcomes all...

Surprisingly for such a hideous creature, Vual has the power to beguile and charm with his magical voice. His voice will always sound to pcs as the voice of the person they most desire...his followers also gain this ability slowly over time...

When the pc's meet with Vual, he tries to seduce them into joining his cult. If for whatever reason the pc's resist..well then... Vual would probably kill them for sport, as a lesson for those who "resist Vual's love"....
