Price: 20,360 GP, Strong Necromancy
Jevenite is a rare ore native to the Nine Hells. It is very difficult to work (+2,000gp to enchant)
When made into a weapon it is noted for the vicious wounds it inflicts. A Jevenite weapon acts as both a Vicious and Wounding weapon and has a powerful necromantic anticoagulant effect that impedes currative magic.
A Jevenite weapon deals 1 point of bleed damage when it hits a creature. Multiple hits from a Jevenite weapon increase the bleed damage. Bleeding creatures take the bleed damage at the start of their turns. Bleeding can be stopped by a DC 20 Heal check or through the successful application of any spell that cures hit point damage DC 20 Caster Level Check. A critical hit does not multiply the bleed damage dealt by this weapon. Creatures immune to critical hits are immune to the damage. When a A Jevenite weapon strikes an opponent, it creates a flash of disruptive energy that resonates between the opponent and the wielder. This energy deals an extra 2d6 points of damage to the opponent and 1d6 points of damage to the wielder.
