Cloacina’s Amulet – New Magic Item / A to Z Blogging Challenge [C]

4 April, 2011

The chosen of the goddess Cloacina serve a vital role, one that is often underappreciated by their fellow city dwellers.  By their tireless efforts, the sewers flow properly and the city is kept safe from filth and disease.

As the blessed of Cloacina, they are surprisingly clean in appearance (except when just coming off of underground work), in good health and their often have the happiest marriages, being blessed by their goddess in all areas that fall into her portfolio.

Cloacina’s Amulet

These amulets are made of silver but are always set with a sliver of simple stone, they show the goddess on one side and the symbol of the city on the other.  As long as their wearer is faithful to both Cloacina and their spouse, the amulet never need to be polished.

While wearing Cloacina’s Amulet, the wearer never becomes lost in the sewers and finds it easy to clean up after a days work, no matter how messy or foul.  Additionally, both the wearer and his or her spouse are immune to non-magical diseases.

All of the powers above are lost if the wearer ever betrays Cloacina or their spouse.

Notes: When I found that the Romans had a goddess of the sewer, purity and marrital intercourse, how could I not have a item to celebrate such a wonderful diety!


  1. Goddess of the sewer, purity and marital intercourse. Are they all the same person? How odd.

    • Indeed, those Romans knew how to combine portfolios for their gods.
