Tuesday Magic Item – Imago Amulet

6 June, 2017

An imageVoddick threw a casual salute to the passing guard. Gollaon did the same a bit more slowly, a puzzled expression on his face.

“What is it my friend?” asked Voddick.

“Did we not just see that fellow entering the stores tent?”

Voddick paused and looked back after the guard.  “I fear you are right.”

Gollaon was already turning and launching into a run.  “Come on!”

Imago Amulet

These amulets are intaglio of a bust carved on semi-precious stone usually set in silver or rarely more valuable metals.  They are valuable but not too valuable in appearance.

When their primary ability is not activated, it makes the wearer’s appearance is hard to remember, imposing a -5 circumstance penalty to any check to remember exactly what they wearer looks like.

When the wearer is touching someone, the wearer can copy their appearance for ten minutes (as per alter self) and they can repeat perfectly anything they have heard the copied person say.  However, this ability only works while the copied person remains alive.  This ability can be used three times a day.

Aura moderate transmutation; CL 10th
Slot neck; Price 6,000; Weight
Construction Requirements
Craft Wondrous Item, alter self, modify memory; Cost 3,000

For D&D 5E:

Wondrous item, rare (requires attunement)

First paragraph as above.

When their primary ability is not activated, it makes the wearer’s appearance is hard to remember, imposing disadvantage on any roll to remember exactly what they wearer looks like.

When the wearer is touching someone, the wearer can perfectly copy their appearance for ten minutes and they can repeat perfectly anything they have heard the copied person say.  However, this ability only works while the copied person remains alive.  This ability can be used three times before needing a long rest to reset.

Notes: More options for disguise are always good and I like the must leave the copied person live limitation.

  1. Never can have too many disguise items–and the having to still be alive is a great wrinkle. It could leave the deceiver in a potentially sticky situation.
