Tuesday Magic Item – Regal Guitar (for Pathfinder and D&D5)

16 August, 2016

Music for allGollaon leaned back, letting the music flow over him.  He watched the singer, they seemed more attractive after each song yet he was barely sipping at his wine.

“Quite a talent,” whispered Voddick once the song had ended and the mistral took a break.

“Indeed,” nodded Gollaon, “but I think it is talent given a helping hand from some subtle magic.”

Voddick looked a little disappointed but then brightened as another set was begun with a strum on the guitar.

Regal Guitar

These finely crafted guitars often show signs of hard use and travel, yet they still play beautifully.  They are made of rare woods occasionally inlaid with ivory or other precious materials but most are simple superb examples of the guitar-makers art and when properly tuned, they produce lovely music.

When played by anyone with even a little bit of skill (One of more ranks of Perform – Stringed Instrument) it provides a +4 bonus on Perform checks where it is used, even if it is only accompanying singing or a dramatic presentation.

More subtly, anyone who listens and enjoys the music is subtly influenced be friendly toward the performer, especially if they are already attracted to the performer.  For the next twenty-four hours, the performer gains a +2 bonus on all Charisma-based skill checks against those that hear and enjoyed the music, doubled against those who find the performer attractive

When played by anyone with even a little bit of skill (proficiency with guitar) it provides advantage on checks where it is used as a musical instrument, even if it is only accompanying singing or a dramatic presentation.

  1. I enjoy the subtle touch that Voddick’s “brightening” at the end is at least party magically induced. I imagine he will be even more irritated later…
