d100 Necromancer Relics

enjoying possibility of introducing corrupt items. Also items that carry hazards of usage of corruption. Different source items have different pros and cons.

d12 Corruption conditions
Corruption takes time usually or has some conditions

02 After 3 uses of power
04 After 7 uses of power

05 If carried 24 hours

08 If used to cause death
09 When wielder takes more than half damage
10 If the item touches blood
11 If the wielder touches a dead person
12 If carried lunar month (28) days
