Dousing Club

Weapon (club), rare (requires attunement)

This club is made from the sturdy and resilient wood of a mangrove tree. Carvings along the natural grain of the wood make the surface of the club resemble ripples on water and it has been polished to a glossy finish.

You have a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon.

When you attack a creature with the club and roll a 20 on the attack roll, water erupts from the club dealing an extra 2d6 bludgeoning damage and pushing the target 10 feet away from the wielder.

In addition, the Dousing Club can also be used to extinguish fire. As an action, the wielder can strike the club against the ground, causing a wave of water to douse non-magical flames within a 5-foot square in reach.

Once per day, the club can create a bigger wave, capable of extinguishing a 20-foot square of fire.

Both types of wave wash harmlessly past any creatures or objects in the area.

Creation Notes

Inspiration words: dousing and critical.

As explained in the rules, each of my random words is from a different dictionary. The theme word is from a d&d themed list, and the wildcard word is from a much larger generic word list. Amazingly, "critical" is today's wildcard word!

Originally I wanted this weapons ability to trigger on a critical hit, but decided to go the same way as Vicious Weapon. It's close enough.
