Plain looking dagger. However, when the dagger is seen in the light of an open flame Jamil's hand print is on the hilt from where he gripped it in his death.
Increases percentage to hit by 75% and damage by 50%. Bonus are there only when used by a mage. However when the mage is in a life or death situation the dagger will fail. The bonus are reversed percentage to hit is decreased by 75% and damage is decreased by 50%.
This is due to a mage name Jamil casting a curse on the blade when it failed him in a fight for his life.

A nice item: although short it establishes its sinister personality and abilities well. I like it.
An intresting idea... A dagger that is both enchanted and cursed. I make the distinction, as it is very well possible that the dagger can help you, it also may actualy be a curse to use it.
A classic case of the GameMaster giveth, and the GameMaster taketh away.
And the vote goes too...
Whenever you in combat isn't it a life or death situation, especially for wizards/mages? Anyway. 4/5
Definitely one for those parties that insist on casting Detect Magic and Identify on everything they find...
'It has a surprisingly strong magical aura, but Identify determined that it only works for Wizards. It has some other property, that appears to be hidden.'
'Cool! I'm taking it!'
What kills me is that this was updated in 2007
Okay, an interesting idea. Nothing special.
Talk about a sub just begging for some additional ideas.
I think I would make the curse activate whenever the mage was alone and/or outnumbered.
I agree that this piece could really use some fleshing out, but it's a solid idea to start with. Would love to see a quest centered around removing the curse or appeasing the dead spirit of Jamil.
Echoing what Dossta said.
As said above - We need flesh!
Who was Jamil? What caused him to curse this dagger so? Why was he slain?
Very basic, but there is a good idea here.
Almost a 100 word challenge sub - would not take too much to make it so.
