|Impaler of thorns|
Source: The Skinsaw Murders, pg(s). 53
The impaler of thorns is a type of magical longspear created in the ancient Thassilonian empire. Its shaft is made of darkwood and its head is a thorn-shaped, wide-bladed barb. Particularly damaging blows cause the impaler to emit an animal-like scream, which can be quite unsettling to hear. Once per day, the user can release a wave of despair and sorrow that affects nearby creatures, causing them to lose their focus and in some circumstances become nauseated.
