Tuesday Magic Item – Necklace of the Bibliothec

18 May, 2010

Passed from head of the grand library to their successor, the necklace has come to symbolize the quest for knowledge.

Necklace of the Bibliothec

This silver alloy necklace has a pendant shaped like a scroll made of silver wrapped around a clear crystal rod, inscribed on the scroll is the word “Veritas” (truth).

The necklace provides a +4 enhancement bonus to Intelligence.  Treat this as a temporary ability bonus for the first 24 hours the headband is worn.  Each necklace of the Bibliothec has two Knowledge skills associated with it after being worn for 24 hours, it grants a number of skill ranks in those skills equal to the wearer’s total Hit Dice. These ranks do not stack with the ranks a creature already possesses. These knowledge skills are chosen when the necklace is created, if no skills are listed, it is assumed to grant skill ranks in randomly determined Knowledge skills.

The necklace further grants its wearer the ability to read writing in any language and any magical writing. The wearer gains a +5 competence bonus on Linguistics checks to understand messages written in partial, archaic, or alien forms. Note that understanding a magical text does not necessarily imply spell use.
