Weapon, rare (requires attunement)

A javelin crafted by the giants as a gift to humans, whose lives are so short and bodies so weak. Faintly glowing runes line its blade.

Tewodros' Bloodthirsty Blade

When this blade is drawn, its barer must make a DC 10 Wisdom saving throw or be charmed by the blade and forced to attack and draw blood from the closest living being. Each time this blade draws blood, it gets larger, its damage increases, and its sway on its barer grows stronger. For the purposes of proficiency and attack rolls the blade is a dagger, even after growing. It strengthens as follows: 1d6, 1d8, 1d10, 1d12. Beyond that point, it needs two hands to wield and has reach, increasing in damage as follows: 2d6, 2d8, 2d10, 2d12, 3d6, 3d8, 3d10, 3d12, 4d6, etc. The blade requires a Wisdom saving throw to stop attacking and avoid being charmed. The save's DC increases by 1 for each successful attack after being drawn. After succeeding on the save, the blade's size and strength diminishes by one step per round.

Tewodros' Dagger (x2)

Weapon, rare (requires attunement)

Black smoke curls around this dagger, obscuring it from view.

As an bonus action, you can cause the dagger's smoke to bellow around you, acting as a fog cloud spell, heavily obscuring a 20-foot-radius sphere which is centered on you and moves with you. Dispelling the smoke requires another bonus action.

Wendimu's Poison Blade

Weapon, rare (requires attunement)

This short sword has a black hilt wrapped in an ivory snake. The snake's mouth opens at the blade's edge, and a narrow rivulet runs the length of the blade's edge.

Lighting three grants temporary expertise. Lighting four grants automatic success (as long as the DC of the check is 25 or less). To put out the candles requires a DC 15 INT or WIS saving throw, adding 5 to the DC for each candle lit beyond one. Failure traps you, lost in thought within the candles' glow.

Heart of the Bahir

Wondrous item, very rare

This fist sized blue heart beats with electricity. Though the creature from whom it was harvested is dead, the heart lives on.

When you cast a concentration spell, you may power the spell with the heart a number of times per day equal to your proficiency bonus. When a spell is cast in this way, you do not have to maintain concertation on it. The spell lasts for its full duration unless the heart is destroyed.

When this heart is clenched in your fist, add 1d8 lightning damage to your unarmed attacks a number of times per day equal to your proficiency bonus.

A poison may be harvested from the blood of the heart that adds 1d8 lightning damage to a weapon's attack. When harvested, you gain a number of uses equal to your proficiency bonus.

When you gain a level and eat a bite of the heart, roll a constitution saving throw and choose an option:

If you fail the save, roll a d6. On a 1, roll on the indefinite madness table (DMG 260). On a 2-5, roll on the long-term madness table (DMG 260). On a 6, roll on the short-term madness table (DMG 259).

On a failure, you still gain the benefits, but you must succeed on a DC 15 Charisma saving throw or be charmed by the Vainglorious Boots for 1d12 hours. While charmed, the wearer will be forced to use the boot's powers to put themselves in harms way by acting in a vain or boastful manner.
