In the slums of Vasteel, no weapon is more feared than a Laced Dagger. While seemingly mundane, these daggers can be easily concealed and they yield a lethal bite. If the initial cut doesn’t do its job, the poison covered blade will.
It’s no surprise that Laced Daggers are outlawed. The minimum sentence for being found with one is a year’s hard labor. Regardless, criminals continue to carry them and to find sly ways to keep them from being discovered.
Any hit you score with this dagger against a creature that is surprised takes an extra 2d6 poison damage.
This dagger has 4 charges, you can use an action to expend one or more of the charges to coat the blade with poison. The poison remains on the blade for 1 minute or until an Attack using this weapon hits a creature–at which point the poison takes effect. The dagger regains 1d4 charges every day at dawn.
