Silverfang is a +1 undead bane mithral rapier originally forged by a cabal of vampire hunters in Ustalav as a weapon against their hated foes. Ironically, the rapier was claimed by a powerful Nidalese vampire named Volsazni Dezarr as a trophy after he single-handedly slew the entire cabal during their foolish attempt to destroy him. Since then, Volsazni has bequeathed the weapon as a token of his favor to no fewer than a dozen vampiric thralls and five of his dhamphir children – Gnaeus being the latest of these recipients.
As long as Silverfang is carried, the user gains a +2 resistance bonus on all saving throws against negative energy and level drain, and whenever he makes a fortitude save to recover from negative level, he may roll twice, taking the better of the two results as the actual result. Once per day, Silverfang can target an undead creature it just successfully critically hit with a halt undead effect (Will DC14 negates) as a swift action.
