Summary::Employing necromantic axioms and powerful negative energy relays, these Karrnathi-developed weapons were first deployed in the Last War to devastating effect. They are cruel, jagged, and angular weapons of iron and obsidian, constructed with traditional Karrnathi functionalism. Their weight is such that they require two hands to aim and fire, although they can be held in one hand. A death ray fires a black ray of crackling negative energy, with a range of 40 ft. If the attack succeeds, the target gains 1d2 negative levels. Assuming an enemy survives the death ray, it regains lost levels after 7 hours. The negative levels from a death ray never risk becoming permanent. An undead creature hit by a death ray is instead healed 5d2 hp (a creature willing to be hit by a ray is treated as having a touch AC of 10).
