W is for Whip of Wounding.
This flexible weapon can be used by any character class save magic-users. It inflicts only minimal damage (1D4 points) and no adjustments are applied for strength. Attack rolls with a whip are modified by a wielder's dexterity instead of strength, though it is only used in melee.
Damage from a whip of wounding fester painfully and cannot be healed except by magical means (cure spells, potions of healing, etc.). The weapon is single-tailed and approximately 7' in length.
|Good weapon for evil clerics.
