Skofnung has 12 charges and regains 2d6 charges per week. As an action, you may expend 1 charge to summon a warrior spirit within 30 feet of you. It uses the statistics of a champion warrior except they do not wear armor and possess the following additional abilities:

Unarmored Defense. The warrior’s AC equals 10 + their Dexterity modifier + their Constitution modifier (total of 18).

Bloodied Frenzy. While the warrior is bloodied , they make all attacks with advantage and all attacks against them are made with advantage.

You may also concentrate for 1d4+1 rounds and expend 5 charges to summon a berserker horde within 30 feet of you. Any creatures summoned by the sword obey your commands and remain for 1 hour or until they drop to 0 hit points.


Skofnung was the blade of the legendary king Hrolf Kraki. It was renowned for its supernatural sharpness, the hardness of its steel, and for the fact it was imbued with the spirits of his 12 most faithful berserkers. It later showed up in multiple different sagas, usually as a result of some new hero plundering it from Hrolf’s tomb for one purpose or another.
