The Dead Lands of Athas
Crafted from dasyl, the crystalline substance formed from the hardened spittle of a Thri-Kreen, this +1 Bard’s Friend bears a metallic green sheen. This bard’s friend still retains some of the potency of the paralytic poison used in its construction. It allows the wielder to use a poison effect (as the spell, save DC 14) upon a creature struck by the blade once per day. The wielder can decide to use the power after he has struck. Doing so is a free action, but the poison effect must be invoked in the same round that the bard’s friend strikes.
