Screams of the Damned A creature attuned to the Greatsword of Soul Drinking will have their maximum hit points reduced by 1 every hour until they unattune or the weapon is destroyed. If the creature’s maximum HP is reduced to zero, its soul is absorbed into the sword.
Infernal Smite The Greatsword of Soul Drinking has three charges. When the foot soldier hits a target with an attack using this weapon, before the damage roll the soldier may expend 1 charge to deal 10 points of fire damage to the target in addition to the weapon’s normal damage.
Drinker of Souls Whenever the foot soldier kills a humanoid other than a construct or undead with this magical sword, the humanoid’s soul is absorbed into it and the soldier gains 10 temporary hit points. A humanoid whose soul resides within the sword cannot be resurrected by any means except by a Wish spell. Souls can only be released by melting down the sword blade in fire such as a forge, volcano, etc. Souls within the sword cannot communicate, but an Identify spell targeting the sword will reveal the names of every Soul currently trapped within.
The Foot Soldier makes two weapon attacks, or one weapon attack and one tail attack.
Soul Drinker Greatsword melee +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 2d6 (5) slashing damage.
Tail Attack melee +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 3d8 (13) piercing damage. On a hit the target must succeed on a DC 16 CON save or take 1d8 poison damage and be incapacitated until the end of its next turn.
Opportunity Attack when making an opportunity attack, the foot soldier may use its tail attack instead of a weapon attack.
Hulking abyssal soldiers with purple-black skin, patches of green scales, and a thin, segmented tail ending in three prongs glistening in oil. The face has no nose, no mouth, and is dominated by huge, jaundiced eyes.
