This broad-bladed +1 ghost touch nine-ring broadsword (Ultimate Combat p 131) is crafted of silvery-gray steel, with nine golden rings threaded through it spine that glow with magical power. Streamers of blue and purple silk hang from the sword’s prommel.
The nine-fold spirit sword has nine charges, represented by its nine rings. As a swift action, the wielder can discharge the energy in these rings to create one of 3 effects.
By expending 1 charge, the wielder can add the undead bane special ability to the sword for 1 minute.
By expending 2 charges, the wielder can attempt to banish a creature possessing another creature (such as a ghost possessing a creature using its malevolence ability) with a successful hit on the possessed creature. The possessing creature must succeed a Will Save DC 17 or be driven out of the body of the creature it is possessing.
By expending 3 charges, the wielder can attempt to destroy a single undead creature with a successful hit. The creature must succeed a DC 17 Will Save or be utterly destroyed. Spell resistance does not apply to either the banishing or the destruction effect.
Each ring holds 1 charge; when the charge is expended, one ring stops glowing. The sword recharges 1 charge per week.
