Dagger of the Devourer

Aura strong evocation; CL 15th; Slot slotless; Price 48,302 gp; Weight 1 lb.


The hilt of this gold dagger is fashioned into the Devourer of the Dead, a being with the head of a crocodile, the body of a lion and the hindquarters of a hippopotamus. 


The dagger of the devourer weighs the heart of the target and functions as a +3 holy dagger.

On a successful attack, a spectral Devourer of the Dead appears and bites into the target’s chest to weigh the heart. Non-evil creatures are judged worthy and suffer normal damage. Evil creatures are immediately judged unworthy, and the Devourer consumes their hearts, causing the dagger’s extra holy damage to deal 2d8 points of damage, rather than 2d6.
