The great warrior Krige of Val-Toresh was renowned for his love of battle and the joy with which he entered the field, eager to engage in bloody slaughter. His reputation earned him a large following of expert mercenaries just as motivated. Kings and generals feared him, empires went to war just for the opportunity to hire him, and he grew rich from the spoils of conquest.
His world fell apart after his wife and child died in a war he started. Eager for more gold, Krige purposely inflamed tensions between his native country and a neighbouring state. While he was away bargaining his services, a raiding party crossed the border and attacked his home town, slaying his family. Distraught, Krige fell on his own sword, his great sorrow infusing the weapon with the pain and suffering of his tortured soul.
The wielder of Krige’s sword gains the ability to transfer this great sadness to other creatures. Unfortunately, Krige’s residual spirit, while eager for combat, also takes its anger out on those would use it for further death.

Agony of the Fallen (Su) Those slain by sorrow haunt the wielder. Their moans and curses from beyond the grave frighten the sword’s bearer. Sorrow’s wielder takes a -2 penalty to all saves against fear effects, spells, and spell-like abilities. However, these ghostly voices interfere with another creature’s attempts to control the user. Sorrow grants a +2 bonus to saves against enchantment effects, spells and spell-like abilities.
Deadly Bleed (Su) At 7th level opponents reduced to 0 or fewer hit points by sorrow take 1 point of bleed damage per round. Only magical healing halts the bleed. The caster of a healing spell must make a caster level check to halt the bleed (DC 11 + wielder’s level).
Doom (Sp) The wielder may use doom three times per day.
Eyebite (Sp) The wielder may use eyebite three times per day.
Great Cleave (Su) The wielder gains Great Cleave when using sorrow in combat.
Mighty Cleave (Su) The wielder of sorrow can use the extra attack gained from the Great Cleave feat to attack the same opponent twice in one round. He may not attack a single opponent more than twice in a round when using Mighty Cleave.
