This +1 longsword is well made and handsome, and gives off a magical aura. But this item bears a particular enchantment that prevents it from doing serious harm to anyone. When the blade strikes a living creature, it automatically twists so that only the flat of the blade makes contact no matter how accurate the blow, the sword only does 1 point of damage, plus the wielder’s Strength bonus. The sword’s owner automatically uses this sword over any other bladed weapon in his possession. The only way to be rid of this sword is to voluntarily stay your hand while attacking after three instances (separate combats, not attacks within a combat) of deliberately not harming an opponent that is trying to kill the owner, the owner can pass the sword along to someone else.

Faint enchantment; CL 5th; Craft Magic Arms and Armor; bestow curse; Price 1500 gp
