This weapon is an intelligent +2 dispelling burst keen spell-storing mithral halberd. When the Invidious Halberd strikes a creature capable of casting arcane spells, the creature struck must succeed at a DC 17 Will save or the halberd drains one spell of 3rd level or less, storing that spell in its spell-storing ability (or if the drained spell is dispel magic, in its dispelling burst ability). The halberd picks which spell is stored, but otherwise this ability functions as if the creature struck had used the weapon’s spell-storing ability to store a spell of the halberd’s choice, losing that preparation of the spell (or a spell slot associated with it) in the process. It cannot use this ability if it already has a spell stored. On a critical hit against an arcane spellcaster, the Invidious Halberd also casts feeblemind (DC 17) on the creature struck after it drains a spell.
The Invidious Halberd is destroyed if it is hurled under the crushing feet of an Oliphaunt, but only if there is no current Runelord of Envy living in the world.
