SHADOWWP.ITM is an undroppable weapon used by Shadow creatures (typically equipped in the Weapon 1 slot).


It is considered a magical weapon of enchantment level 1 and inflicts 1d8 Slashing damage (adjusted by Strength), with a range of one foot, and speed factor of 0.

On each successful hit with this weapon, a Strength drain effect is applied which removes one point of that attribute from the targeted creature. The attack bypasses magic resistance, and the effect cannot be dispelled. The duration is one turn.

Multiple strikes of the weapon are additive, and a creature can be killed by loss of all strength.

Strength drain can be reversed with a Lesser Restoration or the superior Greater Restoration or by waiting for the duration of the effect to expire.
