Hooked Massacre

Source Horror Adventures pg. 215
Aura strong transmutation CL 13th
Slot none; Price 22,325 gp; Weight 10 lbs.


This viciously barbed +1 spiked chain consists of a jagged hook at the end of a length of rusty chain. It twitches of its own accord, as if it had some semblance of cruel intelligence. As the wielder swings it, the chain contracts and expands with a seemingly endless supply of new links. As a free action, the wielder can cause the chain to expand, giving the weapon reach for 1 round. The weapon doesn’t threaten adjacent squares when it’s expanded. The wielder can’t reverse this change manually; he must wait for it to expire.

If the wielder of a hooked massacre uses it for a dragAPG or repositionAPG combat maneuver that brings the target adjacent to him, he can make an attack against the target at his highest base attack bonus as an immediate action.


Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, Combat Expertise, Improved DragAPG, Improved RepositionAPG, haste; Price 11,325 gp
