Tuesday Magic Item – Wanderer’s Talisman

13 September, 2011

“The old man who gathered windfall in the woods passed it to me and now I give it to you.  It is a small thing, but it will keep you safe and guard you on your path,” he said, folding my hands around the worn silver talisman.

“Thank you,” I said, the amulet still warm from his hand.  “I will keep it near to me always.” He smiled.

As I put it on, I felt more secure in some way I could not explain.

Wanderer’s Talisman

A simple silver talisman, often worn from handling.  Rarely found on a chain but more often tied to a cord or string.

These items provide a simple blessing (or protective magi, depending on the creator) that is helpful for a traveler.  The wearer gains a +2 bonus to Perception check to spot ambushes and other dangers on the road, +2 to rolls to resist non-lethal damage while traveling and they can treat their base move as 5 feet higher for calculating how far they can travel in a day when walking.

Aura faint transmutation; CL 3rd
Slot neck; Price 500; Weight
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, Bear’s Endurance, Bull’s Strength, Owl’s Wisdom; Cost 250 (+20 xp for D&D)

Notes: Returning to one of my common themes for magic items, simple travel items.

Such things are on my mind as I am about to leave on a trip.
