  • Mantis: (iron short sword, requires attunement) An ancient iron sword crafted by Flan shaman as a weapon against a specific threat: green dragons. The blade has a ragged, serrated edge reminiscent of a insectile claw; the metal itself has a strange greenish hue. The pummel is a multifaceted emerald, while the hilt of the blade is made from a green, reptilian skin.

Its wielder gains +1 to attack and damage roles made with this weapon. Against draconic creatures (including wyverns and dragon turtles) it does an additional 1d6 points of damage. Against green dragons, it does 3d6 points of damage.

'Mantis' is an intelligent weapon that seeks the death of dragons, but green dragons in particular. It has a low, insectile cunning, and speaks telepathically through a series of clicks and clacks, usually representing one word concepts (click-clack "eat" click-clack "hide"). It can communicate with others through the use of pheromones -- these radiate emotions like "anger" or "hunger".
