Humble Homebrew: Haggard Head

At certain point in each adventure, party members crave more powerful weapons to bolster their defense. Some wait to find what loot there is during adventure or perhaps they commission an npc to craft a powerful new sword, but you either find nothing worth the wait or you have to wait months in game for the upgraded blade. The Haggard offers the option for a quick power boost to any mundane weapon.



I was really excited to release this item because it was inspired by one of my favorite graphic novels, Head Lopper by Andrew MacLean. The story follows a warrior and “undead” head that he sometimes ties off onto the handle of his sword. The two get into antics that on occasion forces Agatha, the head, to use her magical powers. From there I decided to try and adapt her into D&D as an item. I think this item might be a bit unbalanced, but I think it’s a very silly, but otherwise effective item. I enjoyed making it so much that I think I’ll make a collection of items that function in much the same way. If you enjoyed this item please let me know, and if you think it could be better let me know that too!
