Everyday Magic #245: Captive Blade

One of the secrets to gift-giving is being able to hide what you're about to give someone until right up until the right moment when it's time to let them have it. 

Which could sound kind of threatening if you think about it... 


Captive Blade

Weapon (dagger), uncommon (requires attunement)

This petite +1 dagger is easy to disguise even when being searched, granting the wielder advantage on Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) or Dexterity (Stealth) checks to hide the weapon from view. A wielder does not have disadvantage on attack rolls with the captive blade when prone or restrained. Whenever the wielder uses the captive blade to cut rope, chains, manacles, or similar objects restraining the wielder, the captive blade’s magical bonus is increased to +3 and attacks with it ignores any damage threshold of the material comprising the restraints unless they are made of adamantine or a substance of similar strength.
