Fate Cutting Arrow
Aura strong divination and necromancy; CL 11th
Slot none; Price 1,008 gp; Weight 1/5 lb
These arrows have heads made of dull, dark grey metal, an ash gray shaft, and fletchings made from the feathers of ravens and crows. If you stare at one too long, a wispy strand of thread can be seen tangled around the shaft for a moment, but if you blink, it vanishes.

When used by those that do not know their secret, they are simply +1 arrows that ignore 1 point of damage reduction on their target.

Their secret is that they can cut the strands of fate of their target—but doing so is costly to the archer. To use this ability, the archer must mark the arrow head with a drop of their own blood, and speak the name of the target (a move action) inflicting 1 point of Constitution damage and taking a year from the archer’s life (reducing their maximum age). The empowered arrow becomes a +2 named-bane wounding arrow that ignores any damage reduction the target might have and only suffers half penalties for range. Additionally, the archer adds their Charisma bonus—if positive—to any attempt to confirm a critical hit with the arrow.
