Screaming Spear of the Sun (Minor Artifact)

Slot none; CL 20th; Weight 4 lbs.; Aura strong divination and enchantment

DESCRIPTION

This +4 wounding throwing longspear has a 2-foot-long iron spearhead covered with over 30 cruel flesh barbs. On a critical hit, the barbs lodge in the victim’s flesh and can be removed only by tearing the blade free. Yanking the blade free is a full-round action that requires a successful Strength check with a DC equal to the attack roll that struck the critical hit, and deals 3d6 points of damage to the victim.

In the hands of a mythic creature, the spear gains the returning special ability, and when thrown seemingly comes alive, screaming wickedly as it flies. When it hits a creature, it radiates fear (as the spell) in a 60-foot-radius burst surrounding the creature struck.

Each use of mythic power the wielder expends when throwing the spear increases the spear’s throwing range by 100 feet.

DESTRUCTION

A screaming spear of the sun disintegrates if thrown into the flaming heart of a sun.
