Tuesday Magic Item – Vigilant Eye of the Republic5 August, 2014
We ducked back to avoid the citizen patrol, this shipment of wine -smuggled at great effort- would be worth a nice bag of coin.
Sticking to the back alleys, we maneuvered into a disused stable. Once used by the Duc Aflon when his wished to visit the pleasure quarters, it had been abandoned for months.
Distantly, the bells sounded midnight. Our buyer should be here momentarily.
Suddenly, there were lights everywhere. “Surveillance Committee,” announced their leader, the Vigilant Eye medal as their throat flashing in the light. “You are under arrest for crimes against public order.”
Vigilant Eye of the Republic
These amulets are made from the melted silver taken from the royal judges, on one side is the eye of vigilance and on the other side is stamped the number of the Republican agent it is assigned to.
The wearer of the Vigilant Eye becomes hyper-aware of threats to the Republic, gaining a +5 competence bonus to Perception checks and a +3 competence bonus to Sense Motive checks. The wearer also gains a +1 morale bonus to attacks against any enemy of the Republic and a +3 morale bonus to defeat any mental effect designed to turn them from their service to the Republic.
Unfortunately, the wearer becomes humorless and focused only on serving the Republic, suffering a -2 penalty to all Bluff and Diplomacy checks. They also find it difficult to overlook any threat to the Republic, no matter how small, requiring a Will Save DC 12 to overlook a minor crime (such an as orphan stealing an apple, upsetting the economy) and going up from there.
