Ruins of Adventure
A blunt blade of blackened steel, the magic of this weapon heats it to red hot as battle continues. As it begins to glow and crackle, runes of power shine menacingly on the blade and pommel.
This weapon functions as a Broadsword. Each combat round after the first the searing sword gains a +1 cumulative damage bonus. This bonus damage is fire damage and may ignite flammable objects (item saving throw vs. fire negates).
Each combat round after the first the weapon grows progressively hotter, burning the wielder for an amount of fire damage equal to its damage bonus. Heavy gauntlets or gloves reduce this by 1.
