Adventurers beware, for scattered reports have circulated of sightings of the infernal relic, the Hand of Vecna. Gnarled and charred black with long, ragged fingernails, it promises power, but gives only damnation.
While we are on the subject of The Hand of Vecna, it is worth noting that when the Lich succeeded in ascending to godhood, he was still deprived of his Hand and Eye, so it could be speculated that he may want those parts of him back, whether their current owner(s) wish to return them or not.
Any adventurers - paladins especially - would be wise to keep a sharp eye out for the Hand to prevent it from falling into the hands of those who would misuse it for their own ends.
