Long Description

A vicious, crescent-shaped sickle of immense proportions. It looks like someone started with a farming scythe then got rid of any parts of it that couldn't directly be used to kill and maim. The handle of the sickle is covered in numerous runes and eldritch sigils. The blade oozes a greasy substance somewhat similar to green oil. Something suggests that this sickle was never designed with gathering mistletoe under the full moon in mind.

Appraises As

The rune-covered sickle is about four feet long and about six inches wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type misc.

Acquisition

The Archdruid in the druid circle has it. You need to have done a quest to be able to hold it though.

Notes

This weapon has a poison attack that does the following:

The unemployed banker suddenly pales, and looks like she'll throw up soon.

Unlike an ornate warhammer, it does not require offensive or insane tactics for the poison to work.
