Magic Item: Tears of Ivory

One evening while working at his forge, Jie Chue was presented with a token of a former client's appreciation. Setting aside hammer, tongs and blade, he accepted the gift. Within the bundle was an alicorn.

This distressed Jie Chue, though he made no outward sign; with honest graciousness, he gave his thanks and bid good evening to his guest.

The following morning Jie Chue forged a weapon that would not harm.


Tears of Ivory: This slim, slightly-curved dagger is forged with blade and hilt all of one piece of steel, the grip wrapped in plaited silver wire, and inlaid along both sides of its blade with thin and delicately-etched slices of alicorn in the shape of a stylized unicorn's horn.

The dagger cannot be used to attack; it simply will do no damage. However, each day Tears of Ivory may be touched to wounded individuals to grant healing, to a maximum of 8 hit points total per day. Carrying Tears of Ivory grants its owner a +1 bonus to saves against poison.

Can the Tears of Ivory be used to block attacks, to parry? Or should it just not be used in combat at all? I would imagine you wouldn't want to damage the inlays.

You might make Jie Chue stroppy if you did it. Not meant for combat, and all that.

But more importantly, why would you? There's no block or parry in D&D ;3

This alone = Bad Plan.
