The True Demonslayer

By:

The Demonslayer… ironically created by the very creatures it was designed to kill.

Full Item Description
The True Demonslayer is a fearsome weapon to behold. The blade of the greatsword is inlaid with runes from the hilt to about a quarter the length of the blade. The grip of the sword is encased in well worn leather and has a large demon fang on each side for the handguard. The pommel of the sword encases a large ruby.
History
The True Demonslayer was originally created by an Artisan working for the Demon Archivist on the Hell’s Caravan project. This Artisan met with a very painful death after it was discovered that the curse that was supposed to be laid on the sword backfired. The sword the Archivist wanted created was designed to actually heal any infernal foe that the sword might strike. This mistake was not discovered until after the sword was already in the world. The sword was given as a gift to a young prince of a kingdom. When the demons attacked, planning on destroying the kingdom, they found a nasty surprise waiting for them. The sword had a devastating effect on the demons and the ones still alive fled in terror. The demons have attempted to reclaim the sword over the years but the destruction it wreaks on them has made this unsuccessful so far. The sword has been passed down as an heirloom in the kingdom for generations now.
Magic Properties
This is a greatsword +2, +5 vs. demons/devils and it has a 20% chance of utterly destroying a demon/devil on a critical hit.

Note: This is sort of part of the in work Hell’s Caravan stuff. The demons did make a second attempt at creating the sword and I’ll post that in the next couple of days along with more information about Hell’s Caravan.

Backfire might not have been the proper word there. Basically the demon failed his craft check and the item didn't turn out as planned. Think of it as a car manufacturer. Sometimes things just don't always work right. In this case it worked really wrong. Also the item is part of a much bigger thing I'm working on right now called Hell's Caravan. So the item might be a little less corny after you see the rest of the story which I hope to have up in the next couple days.

The item, had it worked as intended, would have relied on what I call the Curse of magic Naivety. It depends on either the subject having little to no caution with regards to magical gift items, or that the demonic nature of the item be suppressed with undetectibility. So many items seem to depend on someone in power going - "Cool, magic item! Yoink!" and then later "Auugh!"

As for the enchantment having been reversed, I could see it, but it speaks to rampant incompetence among these infernal conspirators that it was deployed in its defective status.

Unless of course, there was intentional sabotage of the Demons plans.

The players see a small shrine to the local nature deity just of the trail. Before they even approach it, they can smell the foul stench of rotting meat. If they inspect the shrine, they can see it has been desecrated by rotting organs in the last few days. There is no mistaking it for an obscure ritual, the organs are thrown everywhere, not left in specific places as in sacrifice.

If the players try to clean the shrine, they will soon find it has been boobytrapped to fling sharp splinters covered in the rotting gore in every direction. While only doing a few points of damage, they injured players will likely take sick soon unless they get medical attention.
