Tuesday Magic Item – Hop, Skip and Jump Medallion

14 November, 2017

“Thief!” yelled the merchant grabbing as the slim form now running from his stall.

Voddick lunged for the thief but grabbed only air as they simply were not there.  He looked around confused.

“There!” shouted Gollaon winging a peach pit off the back of the thief’s head.  The thief looked back with a bit of wounded pride and then leapt up onto a rooftop and was gone.

“Unfair,” complained Voddick.

“But successful.”

Voddick nodded ruefully.

Hop, Skip and Jump Medallion

These medallions are usually colorful, often they could be considered garish, and decorated with images of athletes or animals.

The constant power of the medallion is a +4 competence bonus to acrobatic checks but up to three times a day, as a free action, the wearer may trigger either a feather fall or a jump spell.

Among certain type of people, having such a medallion is a cachet and gives a +2 equipment bonus to appropriate social checks.

Aura moderate transmutation; CL 5th
Slot neck; Price 2,000; Weight
Construction Requirements
Craft Wondrous Item, cat’s grace, feather fall, jump; Cost 1,000

For D&D 5E:

Wondrous item, uncommon (requires attunement)

First paragraph as above.

The constant power of the medallion is advantage on the wearer’s Strength (Athletic) checks when jumping and Dexterity (Acrobatics) rolls.  Once, as a free action, the wearer may trigger either a feather fall or a jump spell, this ability is not available again after the wearer has a short or long rest.

Among certain type of people, having such a medallion is a cachet and gives a +1d4 bonus to one appropriate social roll (of the wearer’s choice) with such people, this ability cannot be used again until the wearer has a long rest.

Notes: Something useful for an urban character especially.
