Dragon Eye Ring (emerald) (Minor Artifact)
Dragon Eye Ring (ruby) (Minor Artifact)

This is a set of five rings, each wrought of gold in the form of a dragon twisting around the wearer's finger. Just as every dragon is unique, every dragon eye ring is different. On each ring, the dragon's head is seen from a side-view and has a small gem inset as the eye, intent upon the viewer. One ring has an emerald, one a sapphire, one a ruby, one a clear diamond, and one a piece of jet.

detect magic reveals an aura of strong abjuration.
identify and analyze dweomer reveal nothing.

legend lore revealed that this minor artifact set is very rare. These rings are badges of honor to the Dragonmasters of Lynn, though a few rings have made their way to Eastern Oerik. Their manufacture is held as a secret by the artificers of that secretive order, so these may not be reproduced.

Experimentation and powerful divinations might reveal the powers of the rings.

(Having done so, the party has determined the following):

Each of the five rings grants continuous see invisible to the wearer, provides a +10 competence bonus to Perception (Spot and Listen), grants a 20 ft. enhancement bonus to the fly speed of the bearer and all allies within 30 feet, and gives a +2 (typeless) bonus to Reflex saves vs. Dragon Breath.

Each individual ring provides an additional bonus to the wearer, appropriate to the color of the stone interpreted as a particular type of chromatic dragon:

Emerald: 50% damage from an initial failed fortitude save vs. poison, eliminates need to make a second fortitude save a minute later.
Ruby: -25% damage from fire
Sapphire: -25% damage from electricity
Jet: -25% damage from acid
Diamond: -25% damage from cold

Caster level 12th. Market Value: ?

Dragonmaster Armor

This ornately crafted plate armor is lacquered and filigreed with gold or silver and studded with gems. The decoration depicts dragons in special and extraordinary ways, such as circling the length and breadth of the suit like a body-length tattoo.

This +3 full plate armor is worth 10,000 gp more than standard value.

Golden Cuirass

This magical cuirass is made of a strange flaky metal. Closer inspection reveals that it appears to be reshaping and reforming its own metal surfaces, constantly writhing and changing as it rebuilds itself.

This function as a masterwork breastplate that provides an unknown (to you) protection against an unknown kind of transformation.

It is worth 1,000 gp due to its curious and unique nature.

Holy Symbol of Loviatar
Unusual only (we think) insofar as it was given to her by the Avatar of the goddess herself.

Robe of Transmutation (140,000)

This finely made green silk robe has a pattern of purple star bursts upon it.

When worn, the robe confers the following powers:

  • The robe increases the Difficulty Class for all spells that change a target's shape (such as baleful polymorph, flesh to stone, or polymorph any object) cast by the wearer by +1.
  • Immunity to baleful polymorph, polymorph any object, and any other spell or supernatural effect that changes the wearer's form against her will.
  • polymorph 1/day
  • baleful polymorph 1/day
  • Prime Transformation: Once per day, this supernatural power allows the wearer to transform herself into any creature that she consumes a tiny piece of. This transformation is treated like shapechange, save that only one form can be assumed. The powers granted by the robe of transformation remain available to the wearer even when she assumes a new form and the robe is absorbed into the wearer's new form.

Strong transmutation; CL 17th; Craft Wondrous Item, baleful polymorph, polymorph, shapechange; Price 140,000 gp; Weight 1 lb.

Shoes of Farstriding (10,000)

This pair of shoes is made of behir hide, padded with velvet and silk. They are worth 2,000 gp for their workmanship alone. Their magic is cloaked by a permanent Nystul's magic aura to make them appear nonmagical.

The church of Fharlhanghn holds these shoes in particularly high regard, although they are also popular among many adventuring circles. They increase the wearer's base land speed by 10 ft. In addition to this ability (considered an enhancement bonus), these boots grant the wearer a +4 bonus on checks to resist being bull-rushed, tripped, or otherwise moved against his will. Finally, they grant a +2 enhancement bonus to Constitution.

Moderate transmutation; CL 10th; Craft Wondrous Item, bear's endurance, longstrider; Price 10,000 gp; Weight 1 lb.

Sword of Kas (Major Artifact)

Intelligent (NE) rapier with a wavy blade, guards of unicorn horn, a basket resembling a grimacing face, and an unusually long hilt, allowing it to be wielded with either one or two hands.

Constant powers: +5 collision enervating souldrinking, foresight, grants immunity to charm, fear, hold, magic missile.

Veracity's blessed book
A reward from Shina-Tsu-Hiko for her role in defeating Vecna, this appears to be a finely-made book, 12″ by 8″ by 1″. The cover is fine leather, inlaid with Veracity's sigil in mithril, and the corners are bound in iron. The book is permanently arcane locked, keyed to Veracity, and is waterproof and indestructible. This small book contains 1,440 pages on which Veracity can inscribe spells, two pages per spell level, without paying the standard 25 gp per page in order to do this. The book currently contains all 112 of her spells on 545 pages.

Pain Touch
Necromancy [Evil]
Level: Sor/Wiz 3
Components: V, M
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Touch
Target: Creature or creatures touched (up to one/level)
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: Fortitude partial
Spell Resistance: Yes

The caster gains a melee touch attack that can be used one time per level. A successful touch induces extreme pain in the target. The pain causes no damage, but for the next 1d4 rounds, the opponent must make a Fortitude save each round. On a failed save, the target is effectively dazed that round and can take no actions, although he can defend himself if attacked. On a successful save, the target can act as desired, but with a -2 circumstance penalty on attacks, saves, and checks.

The material components for this spell are a needle and the finger from a scorched glove.

Veracity's Whip of Pain
Evocation [Evil, Force]
Level: Sor/Wiz 3
Components: V, S, M
Casting time: 1 standard action
Range: 0
Effect: One whip of force
Duration: 1 round/level
Saving Throw: Fortitude Partial (see text)
Spell Resistance: Yes

This spell creates a whip-like, flexible line of force, emanating from the fingertips of one of the caster's hands. The caster wields this crackling, coiling line of purple sparks proficiently as a magical weapon with an enhancement bonus of +1 per 2 caster levels (max +5). The magical whip strikes opponents up to 15 feet distant. As a force effect, the whip can affect ethereal and incorporeal creatures.

If the wielder successfully strikes a target, there is a loud snapping sound, and the target suffers 2d4 + (enhancement bonus) + (Str bonus) points of damage.

Additionally, any hit afflicts the target with intense pain. Each hit forces the creature to make a Fortitude save. If the creature succeeds at the save, it feels only enough pain to suffer a -1 penalty to its next attack roll. Failure wracks the creature with pain, stunning it for 1 round. Multiple hits in the same round force multiple saves. The effects are cumulative.

The material components of this spell are a drop of the caster's blood and one of the caster's hairs.

Wrack (Complete Divine)
Necromancy [Evil]
Level: Clr 3, Pain 3, Sor/Wiz 4
Components: V, S
Casting time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: One humanoid
Duration: 1 round/level
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

A humanoid subject of the spellcaster's choosing is wracked with such pain that he doubles over and collapses. His face and hands blister and drip fluid, and his eyes cloud with blood, rendering him blind. For the duration of the spell, the subject is considered helpless and cannot take actions.

Even after the spell ends, the subject is still visibly shaken and takes a -2 penalty on attack rolls, saves, and checks for 3d10 minutes. The subject's sight returns at the end of the spell's duration.
