Blessed Flail 

Uncommon (attunement to a Paladin)

This triple headed flail uses the power of stored divine energy. You can take an action and use a charge to make a special attack. You can slam the weapon against the ground and do a special 15ft horizontal line attack. This line is specific in that it hits the creature in front of you and any other two creatures on either side of them. Each creature in this line must make a dex save using your spell save DC. On a fail the creatures take 3d4 radiant damage (no modifier damage added), on a save they take half damage.

Charges: This weapon has 7 unreplenishable charges. Once all charges are used up it becomes a normal weapon.


Here we have a very simple magic item for early level parties. This is perfect for a low level paladin that only gets one attack per turn. Limiting the uses to a specific amount of unreplenishable charges helps to do two things; 1. If it is too strong or too weak then it has a finite amount of uses before it stops becoming a problem, 2. If the player likes the item then they can make it part of their journey to find a smith who can make a more permanent version of the weapon. This gives the DM some time to learn if it needs to be powered up or down and can later adjust for the “ smithed and finished version”. Heck, maybe if they get the right materials for the smith, they can have them make a better version of the weapon. Or, if it didn’t work out then it was just another fun little weapon they came across in their journeys.
