Consuming Rod

Consuming Rod

Weapon (mace), very rare (requires attunement)

This bone rod is crafted from a humanoid femur. One end is carved to resemble a ghoulish face, its mouth open wide and full of sharp fangs. The rod has 8 charges, and it recovers 1d6 + 2 charges daily at dawn.

The consuming rod functions as a +1 mace of biting. When it hits a creature, the mace's mouth stretches gruesomely wide and bites the target, adding 3 (1d6) piercing damage to the attack. If the rod's wielder then expends 1 charge, he or she regains hit points equal to the piercing damage.

The rod can attempt to swallow a Medium or smaller creature it has just bitten. This costs 5 charges, whether or not the attempt succeeds. The target must make a successful DC 14 Dexterity saving throw or be drawn down the mouth of the rod, ending up in an extra‐dimensional space where it remains incapacitated until the rod's wielder uses an action to command the rod to regurgitate the creature. The rod automatically regurgitates a trapped creature at dawn when it regains charges. A regurgitated creature reappears prone, within 5 feet of the rod.
