X-205 Shootemabob

It's a crossbow. That shoots lightning. Enough said, really.

Description:

The history of this minor artifact is not particularly well-known and is beyond Mara’s ability to discern beyond the basics of what it does. The X-205 Shootemabob is a masterwork repeating hand crossbow that possesses an enhancement bonus equal to its wielder’s HD/4 (to a maximum of +5 at L20) and automatically reloads itself with a bolt from an integral extradimensional magazine after firing. This produces an effect as if the wielder of the X-205 Shootemabob had the Rapid Reload feat. The integral extradimensional magazine holds up to fifty bolts and reloading it requires a full-round action for every ten bolts being inserted.

Once per day, plus an additional time per five Hit Dice the wielder has, the X-205 Shootemabob can be used to discharge a bolt of lightning. This ability functions identically to the lightning bolt spell, with a Caster Level equal to the Hit Dice. The DC for the effect’s saving throw is 13 plus the mental ability modifier of the wielder’s choice.

Bio:

Made of some the finest hardwoods you’ve ever seen and embedded with dragonshards, this repeating hand crossbow features a top-fed magazine and bears an extended wrap-around stock embedded with a large Khyber shard that softly crackles with electricity.
