Blade Out Of Time
Valance screamed in pain as the thief’s blade cut into his arm. The others turned to help the priest of the Spider God when suddenly they saw a strange thing; spiders, apparently at Valance’s suggestion, began scrambling away from the thief and his accomplice and ran backwards towards the priest and back into his robes, likewise with the dog-sized arachnid that had climbed in through the window; it also suddenly ran backwards and out through the window it had jumped through to get in. Chanting backwards, Valance retreated by cautiously stepping back towards the door they had come in.
‘What is up with him?’ Koram called over to Chalk who had just cast a spell that caused an oily smoke to envelope the interloping thieves.
‘I do not know, but I would not want to be struck by that blade,’ the wizard replied.
Moments later Valance stopped retreating and regained his composure.
‘What happened?’ he asked, sounding bewildered.
‘We need spiders now, we will talk later,’ Chalk suggested.
The priest of the Spider God looked around, even more confused then recalled the spiders as the coughing and choking thieves, hearing this, tried to retreat as fast as they could.
This old short sword looks as if the blade is broken, yet it holds its shape despite the blade missing pieces. It is rumored that if ever all of the pieces were found that this would be even more devastating of a weapon.
Benefit: In combat this short sword deals 1d6+1 damage. In addition, any creature struck, living, undead, extraplanar or even construct will reverse all of their actions for 1d6 rounds, this power is usable twice per day. While this might appear comical to the observer, this includes the casting of spells, healing others, combat and every other movement. Creatures with 5HD or more receive a Save versus Paralysis with a -1 penalty to resist the effects of this enchanted blade.
Option: Instead of 1d6 rounds this power is usable once per day and effects the target for 1d4 turns.
