Umbral Chopper

Umbral Chopper

Weapon [any axe], very rare (requires attunement)

This simple axe looks no different from a standard forester’s tool. A single-edged head is set into a slot in the haft and bound with strong cord. The axe was found by a timber-hauling crew who disappeared into the shadows of a cave deep in an old forest. Retrieved in the dark of the cave, the axe was found to possess disturbing magical properties.

You gain a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this weapon, which deals necrotic damage instead of slashing damage. When you hit a plant creature with it, the target must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or take 4d6 extra damage and have its speed halved until the end of its next turn. On a successful save, the target takes half of the extra damage and its speed is not halved. While you carry this axe, you may use an action to cast darkness (DC 14 to dispel, no concentration required). Once this property is used, it can’t be used again until the next sunset.
