New Magic Item – Olin’s Instant Locks

3 January, 2011

“Just a minute,” whispered Jush, tying a quick yet complex know around the latch, “this will slow down pursuit.”

Olin’s Instant Locks

These strings are enchanted to seal a door when tied, the better the knot, the stronger the seal.  However, the seal is temporary.


Instant Lock

With a move action it may be looped over a door, sealing it as if locked and adding +5 to the DC to open the door, such a seal last one minutes.  Taking a full action and making a DC 12 Dexterity check increases the duration to 1d4+1 minutes, with a DC 20 check it increases the DC to open the door by +8.

Each string can only be used once (but up to twenty may be created at one time).

Aura faint abjuration; CL 5th
Slot none; Price 75; Weight

Notes:  Part of the doors and passageway theme.

Just a simple and useful item, ironically, probably more useful for thieves than guardians, but you can prove me wrong.
