|Type||dagger, Cairn Scythe|
Zii Horvutah daggers were first created by members of Vith Alok as a way to harness the latent energy of souls. They are made to help fuel the creation of a dracolich from the soul of a dying dragon that may not be strong enough to survive the processing of turning a living dragon into a dracolich. The soul sucking ability of a Zii Horvutah classifies it as a Cairn Scythe.
These daggers are always vile weapons, and usually enchanted to +3.
