2 August, 2016

MayoralChain_SouthMolton_DevonVoddick stepped out of the way of the hurrying noble and scowled at the man’s back.  “Using wizardry is cheating, you fop,” he grumbled.

“Compelling magic?” asked Gollaon before taking a bite of peach.

Voddick nodded.  “All they have to do is ask and I’ll step aside, I have my manners . . . unlike them.”

Chain of Majesty

These chains are always highly visible if not positively ostentatious, gilded if not made of gold and ofttimes bearing coins and medals.

The core magic of the item is that people are subtly compelled to show deference to the wearer, giving him a +1 circumstance bonus to Charisma-based skill checks against them,  Those that realize that they are being effected by sucvh may resist with a Will save (DC 11 + wearer’s Charisma bonus +1 if the wearer is of a higher social status).

Once per day, thew wearer can cloak themselves in majesty, gaining a +2 enhancement bonus on all Charisma-based skill and any sentient being that attacks the wearer must make the same save as above of suffer a -4 morale penalty to their attacks,.  This effect lasts for 1d6+ wearer’s Charisma modifier minutes.
