Necromancer's Dagger - This dagger is made of a black metal with a carved ivory skull serving as its pommel. In the hands of anyone other than a necromancer it is a simple + 1 dagger. In the hands of a necromancer, it has the following additional abilities: + 2 to all turning / control undead attempts; may attempt to permanently control one undead (only one may be permanently controlled at a time.) Undead must have no more hit dice than half the level of the necromancer in question. Note, the possessor of a Necromancer's Dagger no longer gains hit points from rest. These life energies are instead funneled to the dagger. The possessor can still be healed via magical means.
