Rattling Rot
Weapon (Longsword), very rare (requires attunement)

The Rattling Rot is a weapon created using a unique method. First, one must collect 1000 venomous snakes and put them inside an enclosed room or ‘pit’ along with a mix of herbs that would trigger them into a frenzy. Then you wait while the snakes attack and eat each other until there’s only one snake left, a process that could take years or even decades and has a low chance of success. But when you get one healthy survivor, you can use its body to make this sword while imbuing it with powerful necromancy magic while the snake is still alive. This dangerous weapon can inflict a powerful curse that will eat its victim's physical body and life force from the inside. But if they’re not careful, the merciless curse can also affect its user.
