Tuesday Magic Item – Blessed Disc of the Earth Mother

12 June, 2012

“What is this?” asked Conrad, taking a painted clay disk from the mantle piece.

Ask for her blessings

Earth Mother

“Put it back,” I hissed.  “It protects the house, they will be upset if it is disturbed.”

“Peasants and their superstitions,” laughed Conrad putting it back.  I noticed, as he did not, the look of pure hatred that the cook sent Conrad’s way.  I made a mental note not to eat any of the food he was served while we stayed here.

Blessed Disc of the Earth Mother

These discs, usually of fired clay, are decorated with the image of the earth mother and are used to venerate her and to gain her favor.

The disc must be placed in a prominent place in the household it is to protect and aid.  Weekly sacrifices of wine or other spirits must be made and yearly offering of food and other luxuries must be offered.  As long as the Earth Mother is appeased, all who live within the house gain a +1 to saves against disease and those seeking to become pregnant will find such easier and receive a +1 bonus to all saves related to the pregnancy from the Earth Mother’s blessings.
