The sword of venom appears to be a standard + 1 sword, but its hilt holds hidden poison. Any hit with a score of 20 injects poison into the opponent (save or die). Characters whose alignment or class does not allow poison will not be able to use this weapon once they realize its nature, and they must remove the poison to continue using it.
There are six doses of poison and more can be poured within when less than that amount is within the hilt. The device on the hilt is very complex and a remove traps roll must be made when removing or adding poison or the user will have accidentally inoculated himself or herself with the poison.
