Tuesday Magic Item – Plowshare Amulet

17 February, 2015

Something like thisVoddick picked up the silver amulet and turned it in his hand.  “So why was Master Crazybones here trying to destroy this?”

Golloan finished scattering blessed salt over the body of the recently defeated, and hopefully dead, necrourgist.  “Search me, old friend.  But did you notice that he was using his wands and that ring,” he gestured to the wizards severed left hand and the ring that still glowed violet around the index finger, “I think something had gone wrong with his magic.”

Voddick looked closer at the amulet, “It seems harmless enough, it has a pruning hook on one side and a plow on the other.”

Plowshare Amulet

These amulets are made of silver or less valuable metal, never of gold, and feature farming implements upon them or the fashioning of such, sometimes from weapons.  The designs are rarely fancy and sometime are quite basic.  They are very hard wearing and difficult to damage, but tarnish easily.

Three times a day, the wearer of the ring may change a spell that causes damage (or other harm) into any cure or healing spell of the one level lower.

However, if the wearer of the amulet ever uses their magic to deliberate harm innocents, defined as people not causing or threatening harm to the wearer, all of the caster’s harmful spells become changed into cure or healing spells that help the innocent or their champions of the same level.  As long as the amulet exists, it will reassert this curse until the cursed person truly repents and spends a year and a day helping those that they have harmed and causing no injury to the innocent.

  1. This is cool. Love the idea of a reverse curse (it seems like there should be a lot of these out there!) and the “year and a day” duration.
