This sword hosts the spirit of her last wielder, the warrior-scholar Upianshe. She is utterly driven to destroy the aberrant villains that killed her expedition.
This +2 aberration-bane bastard sword is made of magically hardened bronze and has the special purpose of killing aberrations and creatures intrinsically tied to Xhamen-Dor (including seeded undead and the dormant Star Seed). Upianshe's spirit can sense such foes within 60 feet, her bane enchantment applies to them, and against them her critical hit multiplier increases to x3. Finally, she can attempt Knowledge (dungeoneering) checks as though she had 5 ranks in the skill (total +13 bonus).
Requirements: Craft Magic Arms & Armor, detect aberration, summon monster I
Cost to Create: 24,435 gp
