Once per day as a standard action, or as part of a full attack, the bearer of this weapon can strike the blade against the ground, causing it to ring with a deafening clangor that functions as the shout spell. In addition, as a swift action the weapon can be transformed between its reach form and its melee form (from spear to naginata and back). In both forms it is +2 and thundering.
Stolen by Munasukaru years ago, the thundering blade is the ancestral weapon of the Hikoko family, one of the five imperial families of Minkai. The thundering blade is imbued with royal honor, and bestows one permanent negative level on any creature without honor that attempts to wield it (such as oni, traitors, kinslayers, and the like). The negative level remains as long as the weapon is in hand and disappears when the weapon is no longer wielded. This negative level cannot be overcome in any way (including by restoration spells) while the weapon is wielded.
