weapon (melee)

Aura moderate evocation; CL 9th
Slot none; Price 90,308 gp; Weight 3 lbs.

Ikarikurusai is an ornate +3 shock sansetsukon (Ultimate Combat
134) that automatically resizes itself to match the size of its
wielder. The chains joining the segments of this three-section
staff crackle with arcs of electricity, and while held in at least
one hand, the weapon acts as a lightning rod, drawing away
incoming electrical attacks and granting its wielder electricity
resistance 10. Upon striking a successful critical hit, Ikarikurusai
explodes with electricity. In addition to the electricity damage
from the shock ability, the target of the attack is struck by a
stroke of lightning, which then arcs to other targets, as chain
. The bolt deals 5d6 points of electricity damage to the
primary target (Reflex DC 19 for half damage). After it strikes,
the lightning can arc to up to five secondary targets within
30 feet of the primary target. The secondary bolts each strike
one target and deal as much damage as the primary bolt (Reflex
DC 17 for half damage). The chain lightning effect only triggers
on the first critical hit confirmed in a round, regardless of how
many critical hits are made by the weapon that round.
