Tuesday Magic Item – Godstalker’s Lion Tooth Necklace

22 July, 2014

Sharper than . . .“But to hunt the divine?  That would take a will of iron and a soul without fear of consequences,” said the Indigo Sage, leaning back in the heavy chair.  “It is not a curse I would wish upon anyone.”

The slender woman flexed her hands.  “But what if justice can only be found in such a fashion?”

“Justice and the divine?” the sage gestured for his servant to bring tea.  “You have me intrigued.  Please sit and tell me more . . .”

Godstalker’s Lion Tooth Necklace

These items are rare, only two or three are thought to exist, which is no surprise as they are made from the teeth of the radiant lions that guard the pathways between the world, etched with occult runes and strung on a necklace made of dream silk and gold from the shadow realm.  While the appearance of the necklace  may be simple, the skill needed in creating such and symbolism of it all is immense.

When worn, the wearer feels outside the usual flow of the world and gains a +5 competence bonus to Perception and Stealth checks.  The necklace guards the wearer from divine magic providing a Spell Resistance of 12 plus the higher of the wearer’s Wisdom or Charisma modifier plus twice the level of the divine spell attempting to affect them, the wearer must consciously focus to suppress this effect to be effected by helpful divine magic.

Additionally no form of divine scrying or other divine divination magic of 4th level or higher can perceive the wearer.

However, if a user of divine magic put on this necklace they must choose to either deny its abilities, in which case they gain no benefit from wearing it, or choose be cut off from their divine magic unable to cast divine spells or use divinely granted abilities for as long as they wear the necklace.

Aura strong abjuration; CL 17th

Notes: The name come partly from P.C. Hodgell’s The God Stalker Chronicles and is in a small way an homage to such.  It is a very powerful item though only against divine casters, it is a dual edged sword as the wearer may find getting healed difficult.

  1. Very interesting. I like the duel-edged nature. Clarification: so the necklace actually provides higher spell resistance against more powerful spells? That’s funky.


    • Yes, yes it does. It is designed to fight high-level agents of the gods and their avatars and is somewhat less effective against those lower on the faith chain.
