New Artifact: Dragacor, Great Axe of the Dragonborn
Created by the dragonborn and constructed of purest adamantine, Dragicor is a great axe that has been infused with the spirit of a dead barbarian king and inset with ostentatious jewels. It now seeks to bring the back glory of its fallen dragonborn empire, as well as the glory of Xryxithinyx, an ancient copper dragon. This dragon helped create Dragacor and is the last living contributor toward its creation.
But will someone be able to do this? And at what cost? Will that someone be willing to work with the dragon, a dragon that wants nothing more than to have the wielder of the weapon do whatever it and the weapon wants, and to be willing to work under a puppet regime? Or will that person instead seek to destroy the artifact?
For the DM:
Originally designed for the Eberron setting, Dragacor is an artifact that can easily be adapted to any other setting, just be sure to change the names of places in the arcana/history backgrounds given below.
