PFS StandardVorpalItem 17

Source Core Rulebook pg. 585 2.0
Price 15,000 gp
Usage etched onto a slashing melee weapon
Originally created as a means of slaying the legendary jabberwock, vorpal weapons prove equally effective against nearly any foe with a head.

Activate envision (death, incapacitation); Trigger You roll a natural 20 on a Strike with the weapon, critically succeed, and deal slashing damage. The target must have a head; Effect The target must succeed at a DC 37 Fortitude save or be decapitated. This kills any creature except ones that don’t require a head to live. For creatures with multiple heads, this usually kills the creature only if you sever its last head.
