Tsovinar’s Blessing

Name:  Tsovinar’s Blessing (Trident of the Storm)
Owner:   Sargon (Jack Tar)

Weapon Type:  Trident (legendary)
Origin:  Seeing the peril her people faced, the goddess Tsovinar had Manuela of the Salt forge a weapon that would be her people’s defender and her wrath.

Venturing deep under the oceans, deeper than any surface dweller had ever wam, the Manuela of the Salt came to the blazing heart of a great underwater volcano. With the aid of Tsovinar, she crafted the trident using Amar-Utuk’s forge, Anbar the Black Forge. With them, she forged Tsovinar’s Blessing.

Armed with the artifact, Manuela returned to the goddess. Her trident ended the attacks on her people and answered the calls for Tsovinar’s Wrath. Later, in the betrayal of Tsovinar and the overthrow of her priests the trident was lost to the seas.

PROPERTIES

Base Damage:   2d6+3  (see properties below base damage does not include  abilities), with an additional 2d8 when thrown against enemies of Tsovinar.
Dimensions:    12 inch blade, 72 inches long total, 4lbs.
Requires Attunement?:    Yes, 24 hour dedication on the water in a boat.

Magic Weapon

The Trident of the Storm (Tsovinar’s Blessing) is a magic weapon that starts with a 2d6 damage that grants a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it. An additional 2d8 happens against enemies of tsovinar. The trident also has other functions that resemble belt of dwarvenkind in granting a constitution bonus only, a dwarven thrower granting the return of the weapon, and a sword of sharpness. The difference is a limb is skewered and removed on a roll of 15-20, not just a 20 when a critical hit is taken.

It is unknown of more abilities come to bear if or when Tsovinar is freed.
