Arrow of Slaying

Arrow Designed to kill a specific foe


Slaying Arrow

Aura strong necromancy; CL 13th Weight 1/10 lb.; Price varies; standard slaying arrow 2,282 gp, greater slaying arrow 4,057 gp


This +1 arrow is keyed to a particular type or subtype of creature. If it strikes such a creature, the target must succeed at a DC 20 Fortitude save or take 50 points of damage. Note that even creatures normally exempt from Fortitude saves (undead and constructs) are subject to this attack. When keyed to a living creature, this is a death effect (and thus death ward protects a target).

To determine the type or subtype of creature the arrow is keyed to, roll on the table at right.

Greater Slaying Arrow

A greater slaying arrow functions just like a normal slaying arrow, but the DC to avoid the death effect is 23 and the arrow deals 100 points of damage if the saving throw is failed.


Craft Magic Arms and Armor, finger of death (slaying arrow) or heightened finger of death (greater slaying arrow);
