The Teeth of Vorn are large and ancient swords—while the pommels, hilts, and guards vary widely, their long blades are inevitably hewn from what appears to be yellowed and black-veined bone. Priests of Vorn claim the blades were made from the rain god’s teeth by his first acolytes, to protect his enormous form while it lay insensate for nine thousand years beneath The Dreaming Mountain. There were once 32 in existence, it is not known how many are left.
In practice, a Tooth acts as a bastard sword at -1 (the character will realize this as the swords are unusually heavy and strangely balanced), but once a Tooth has tasted its target’s blood, it operates with a damage bonus of +1. Furthermore, with each successful hit thereafter, the blade gains another +1 damage bonus against that target or other targets of the same species. There is no upper limit to the damage bonus that may eventually accrue, but the blade will “reset” at the next sunrise.
