Cursed Backbiter Spear

Source Ultimate Equipment pg. 345, PRPG Core Rulebook pg. 542
Aura moderate evocation CL 10th
Slot none; Weight 3 lbs.


This is a +2 shortspear, but each time it is used in melee against a foe and the attack roll is a natural 1, it damages its wielder instead of her intended target. When the curse takes effect, the spear curls around to strike its wielder in the back, automatically dealing the damage to the wielder. The curse even functions when the spear is hurled, and in such a case the damage to the hurler is doubled.


Requirements +2 shortspear, any magic weapon; Cost
