Blood’s Edge is a deadly glaive made of smoky red crystal as hard and resilient as steel. The glaive is an evil intelligent weapon, but not a particularly powerful one, and most PCs who claim it as their own shouldn’t have much of a problem keeping it in line.
The glaive itself is most comfortable in the hands of one who worships Asmodeus, and if it gains control of its wielder, it forces him or her to sing the praises of the Prince of Darkness, make offerings at his churches, and indulge similar urges that can have a dramatic impact on a non-evil wielder’s alignment.
This +1 keen glaive bears a fragment of the soul and mind of its last victim. The glaive itself has taken its victims name for its own, but can only communicate with its wielder via empathic urges. If its wielder worships Asmodeus, the glaive uses bleed on any of its wielder’s foes it notices is dying, and grants divine favor on a wielder who commands it to do so. If the wielder doesn’t worship Asmodeus, the glaive uses bleed on any dying creature it notices and only grants divine favor against chaotic or good foes—if a wielder commands it to not use bleed in a battle or commands it to grant divine favor against a non-good or non-chaotic foe, a personality conflict occurs and the glaive attempts to gain control of the wielder.
