Evil people in generalEdit
In the hands of any person who wasn't evil, the sword was outright dangerous. It stunted the wielder's vitality, killing those too weak, which was impossible to restore as long as the owner clung to the sword.
In the hands of an evil drow, the sword showed its true potential. It worked as a +5 elf bane unholy vorpal longsword with a large amount of additional powers bestowed on the user, both physical and magical.
On the magical side, the sword allowed the casting of spider climb and web as often as the user wanted and of fire spider once every day. Once per month, the user could summon a yochlol, who opened a channel to commune with Lolth or Selvetarm.
The sword's intelligenceEdit
The Sword of Selvetarm was an intelligent weapon. It couldn't actually talk, barring telepathy, but it could shout Selvetarm's name during any battle. Shouting Selvetarm's name was a common practice among his followers, for they believed killing someone while shouting the name would hand over the killed one's soul to the Spider that Waits.
It generally hated to be not used in a battle and actively urged its owner to enter the fray.
