Finnigan’s cradle + 1
Weapon (shortbow), rare

This shortbow provides a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls. In addition, it deals an extra 1d6 to damage per hit if the target is a giant. The decorative jewels on the bow glow faintly orange if the wielder is within 60 feet of any type of giant.

The shortbow is made out of a carved rib bone from the hill giant Finnigan who was a renowned hoarder of magical treasure. The giant was bested by the Dwarves of Cragg from the town Hammersong over a century ago.

The dwarves brought back the giant’s treasure and its bones, and brought them to the artificer Gudrun. She fashioned a shortbow from the giant’s rib and endowed it with magical items from its hoard. Finnigan’s Cradle has been in the possession of the Cragg Clan’s family ever since.


Duelist’s blade +2
Weapon (dagger), rare

This magical weapon provides a +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls. In addition, on a roll of a natural 20, you can use your reaction to either disarm your opponent or break your opponent’s weapon if they are using a weapon with the light or finesse property.

Make a Strength check contested by your target’s Strength or Dexterity check, whichever is the highest. If you are successful, you break your opponent’s weapon and thereby render it useless. However, if your opponent wants to, they can choose to let go of their weapon to prevent it from being ruined. In this case, the opponent drops their weapon, which lands at their feet.

The Duelist’s blade is an elegant parry dagger, often used by expert duellists and nobles at royal courts. Its handle is decorated with braided silver and decorated with a large gemstone (typically a sapphire, emerald, or ruby), while the blade and cross-guard are made from an alloy of adamantine and hardened steel.

Only members of The Blacksmiths Guild in Hammersong know how to make these weapons.


Ravenholt spear + 2
Weapon (spear), rare

This magical weapon provides a +2 bonus on attack and damage rolls. In addition, it does 1d8 extra radiant damage against undead creatures. On a hit, as a bonus action, the wielder can whisper the words “Altilia Nexiuous,” which loosely translates to “Go back to the darkness” in ancient Draconic and curses the target with the 1st-level spell Hex.

When the spear is within 120 feet of an undead creature, its blade glows faintly white.

The blade of the spear, as well as its sharp end, are made entirely out of silver. Its handle is made of walnut wood and reinforced with steel panels.

This spear once belonged to the elven paladin Arathian Ravenholt, who was renowned for his hatred of and life-long crusade against the undead.

Arathian Ravenholt was last seen five years ago, travelling north, through the Wolfberg Pass. What happened to him – or if he is indeed still alive – is unknown.

A travelling group of fortune-seeking, brave adventurers found his spear and signs of battle in the snow near an old ruin, two days from the Wolfberg Pass.


Soul stealer +2
Weapon (rapier), rare

This magical rapier provides a +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls. In addition, the wielder is granted a +2 bonus to Charisma skill checks while the weapon is on their person.

The blade of the sickle resembles a (somewhat evil-looking) half-moon surrounded by entangled decorations in dark steel. The handle is inlaid with bone which has been branded with the symbol of Malar, the god of the hunt.

The Moonshard sickle is often used by evil druids who harvest poisonous herbs at night for wicked rituals. Its origin is unknown, but according to some bards, the Moonshard sickle comes from Unseelie court in Feywild.

Engraved elvish runes follow the staff and read “Travel well”. The staff was made by wood elves and given to friends of the elves, or to wood elves who planned to embark on long journeys.


Hellfire weapons
Magical weapons (any), uncommon

Hellfire weapons have been forged in depth of The Nine Hells, some say by Asmodeus himself. Any living creature who touches a hellfire weapon has to make a Wisdom ability check DC 20. If you succeed, nothing happens and the weapon’s magical abilities remain dormant. However, if you fail, your character instantly changes alignment to lawful evil.

The weapon will provide a + 1 to attack and damage, as well as an extra 1d6 of fire damage, if the person wielding it is lawful evil. The wielder also has resistance to holy and radiant damage.

When the weapon is drawn it burns with a hellish flame and a faint smell of sulphur lingers in the air. The flames provide bright light in a 30-foot radius.

As a special feature, you can call forth a Hell Hound to fight for you once per day. It takes 1 minute to summon the canine fiend. The Hell Hound attacks on your initiative and obeys your mental commands (requiring no action on your part). The Hell Hound returns to its natural plane when it drops to 0 hit points, if your concentration is broken, or 1 hour after you summoned it.

The hammer head is decorated with the embossed symbol of the deity Torm (a right-hand gauntlet). The handle is made out of white ash and it’s engraved with Littlemoor’s coat of arms: a lamb and three maple leaves.

The javelins are sleek and exceptional light. They are made of one single piece of matte steel and has a long red double-blade. The end of each weapon is shaped like a dragon’s tail. According to legend, Wyrmtail javelins once belonged to fierce dragon hunters in the north, several hundred years ago, but this has never been fully established by scholars at the Seven Keys Library or Winterhold Academy.
