Kiss of the Beast

by John Hare

This fetish takes the lower jaw of a bear, wolf, lion, etc and is attached to a melee weapon with tendons from said animal. Then when the command is given and a target is struck, a phantom upper jaw appears and closes on the lower jaw, inflicting bite damage on the target. The lower jaw then comes loose of the weapon and unless removed drains 1 hp per round from the target. The jaw takes 10 hp damage to remove, or a knock spell, or a Str check. Needless to say this fetish only works once per weapon and can last for up to 4 months before the tendons become too brittle and fall off. If the target is missed after the command is said then the phantom upper jaw still appears but the lower jaw does not detach.
