Bane was a quality that could be added to magical weapons. They excelled at striking and doing greater injury to foes of a particular racial type.[1]


In order to forge a bane weapon, the creator must have summon monster I available.[1]

This quality could be temporarily applied to weapons by means of the transmutation spell, bane weapon.[2]
