of Vile Darkness 3.5
By Monte Cook
When this piercing or
slashing melee weapon deals damage to a living creature, the wielder may command
the weapon to grind as a free action. At that time, the wielder
lets go of the weapon and it continues, magically
animated, to grind itself into the foes flesh. Each round, it deals damage as if the character who had been wielding it had dealt a successful hit with it. The wielder need not concentrate or devote any time or attention to the weapon. The original wielder can grab it at any time as a standard action. The foe (or someone else) can attempt to rid herself of the grinding weapon by making a Strength check (DC 20). If the foe succeeds at the Strength check and has a free hand, she is now holding the fleshgrinding weapon. In any event, the fleshgrinding weapon stops grinding after 5 rounds.
