The Black Kumade was a magical javelin wielded by Lin Goh, clanmaster of the Panthers of Xi. It became a symbol of that ninja clan.[note 1][note 2]

It was an obsidian +2 javelin that would return to its wielder when hurled. It could also be spun like a baton to deflect attacks; while spinning, it served as a +3 shield.[1]



  1. Although named as a kumade, a kind of weaponized rake, the Black Kumade is only statted and described as a javelin. It is unclear if or how this weapon functions as a kumade. It may be that it has a barbed head.
  2. It is unknown what relation this weapon has to the black kumade appearing in the Neverwinter Nights games.
