A dagger of life-stealing is a weapon which can steal some of the life force of those it wounds, and transfer that life force back to the wielder.


The dagger of life-stealing has a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls. When the wielder rolls a natural 20, the dagger deals an additional ten points of necrotic damage to the target. The wielder then gets ten temporary hit points.[4]


Vax'ildan purchased the dagger from Sherri at Gilmore's Glorious Goods.[5] He first used it when wyverns attacked the skyship on Vox Machina's first journey to Vasselheim.[6]


Based on the description given by Sherri when selling the dagger to Vax, the dagger of life-stealing appears to be similar to the DDB Sword of Life Stealing on D&D Beyond.
