Magic Weapon Abilities - Ravenous

A ravenous weapon acquires a taste for the blood of those it wounds, dealing extra damage on subsequent attacks. Ravenous weapons are adorned with teeth or fangs (real or engraved). They make terrible slurping and gnashing noises as they smash bones and carve through flesh. A melee weapon with the ravenous ability only functions if its wielder is evil and can make multiple attacks in a single round.
When a ravenous weapon wounds a creature, it acquires a taste for that creature's flesh and blood. Subsequent attacks made against the same creature during the same round deal an extra 2d6 points of damage (of the same type the weapon normally deals - bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing). For example, Xokarus the blackguard makes three attacks with his +1 ravenous greataxe, hitting Andril the paladin all three times. The first attack deals normal damage, while the second and third attacks each deal an extra 2d6 points of slashing damage.
