We had many great entries but only one could be winner. Todd Gdula, Wolfgang Baur, and myself had a tough choice, but the final decision was unanimous: the spider dagger won the day. Congratulations, Sam! —Scott Gable


This dagger bears a gleaming blade and a multitude of metallic legs. A single multifaceted gem is inset into the blade, gleaming like an eye. It scuttles toward you with disturbing speed.

Spider daggers are frequently created to act as assassins for thieves’ guilds and mages. Swift and silent, they leap on their targets and slice them apart. In some dark cities, fear of spider dagger attacks keep the populace passive and the “gifts” of the merchants high. A brace of spider daggers can reduce even hardened adventures to sliced and bleeding corpses with shocking speed…
