The Headsman's Blade
A huge unwieldy two handed sword, engraved with at least one pithy maxim about the inevitability of death, and encrusted with decorative silverwork depicting skulls, scales and law scrolls, this sword actively seeks to behead enemies.
The Headsman’s Blade is difficult to use even for a trained warrior of great strength. It functions as a normal Two-handed Sword when used in combat, but it’s wielder suffers a -1 penalty on all attack rolls (this stacks with any non-proficiency penalties). Any critical hit scored with the sword will always be against the head (no need to roll for hit location), and gains a +2 bonus to the critical hit severity roll.
