D&D: Pre-Order The Hand And Eye Of Vecna
Do you have ambition to rival the gods? Then grasp power to match–the Hand and Eye of Vecna can be yours… for a price.
And not like, for your soul or anything, but for actual money. Though, if we’re being honest, probably your soul as well. WizKids has just unveiled a new collectible trophy, and it’s none other than the legendary artifacts belonging to one of D&D’s greatest villains: the Hand and Eye of Vecna, lovingly recreated and preserved together in a handsome glass bell jar. These grisly artifacts are the latest in WizKids’ trophy series, though if you ask me, they’re the best yet.
You can keep your Mind Flayer or Dragon head, this display piece would look right at home on the mantel of anyone aspiring towards apotheosis. And they look incredible. Take a look at the detail here.
This is a sculpted, mummified hand, which is holding a bloodshot eye. Both of these contain a fell power, which, according to the DMG, will allow someone who wields them to gain powerful abilities, like truesight, seeing through walls, casting spells like eyebite and dominate monster–though this comes with the risk that Vecna will devour your soul and puppet your body. With the hand, you can cast spells like disintegrate, though again, Vecna might get hungry–and if you have both, you are never tired, can’t be surprised and regenerate hit points.
But that requires you to gouge out an eye and chop off a hand. Better to, instead, hang on to these in a beautiful display case. Here are the details.
Seldom is the name of Vecna spoken except in a hushed voice. Vecna was, in his time, one of the mightiest of all wizards. Through dark magic and conquest, he forged a terrible empire. For all his power, Vecna couldn’t escape his own mortality. He began to fear death and take steps to prevent his end from ever coming about.
Orcus, the demon prince of undeath, taught Vecna a ritual that would allow him to live on as a lich. Beyond death, he became the greatest of all liches.
Some say that Vecna’s lieutenant Kas coveted the Spider Throne for himself, or that the sword his lord made for him seduced him into rebellion. Whatever the reason, Kas brought the Undying King’s rule to an end in a terrible battle that left Vecna’s tower a heap of ash. Of Vecna, all that remained were one hand and one eye, grisly artifacts that still seek to work the Whispered One’s will in the world.
The Eye of Vecna and the Hand of Vecna might be found together or separately. The eye looks like a bloodshot organ torn free from the socket. The hand is a mummified and shriveled left extremity.
Perfect for a spot of honor in your game room, or on display in your store, now you can add both relics to your illustrious collection! The bloodshot, golden-green eye measures 1.5” and perches between the fingers of its companion hand. Conversely, the shriveled mummified hand measures about 7.5” in length, and nests for all to see upon a red swath of satin in a bell jar display case. The wooden display base measures 7” while the glass cover stands about 10.5” in height.
