Strikes with the dagger deal an additional 1d8 positive damage to worshippers of Urgathoa and to anyone who has ever created or summoned an undead creature.

While the dagger is in your possession, you gain a +4 circumstance bonus to Medicine checks and to Midwifery Lore checks.

Despite its utility in combat, the Spiral Athame is intended as a ritual implement, meant to bless newborns and protect them from the predations of undead. If you use the Spiral Athame to cut the umbilical cord of a newly born creature, that creature gains resistance to negative damage equal to their level (minimum 1) and gains a +2 status bonus to saving throws against death effects and necromancy. These bonuses are permanent. Additionally, that creature can never become an undead creature.
