Tuesday Magic Item – Fire-Eating Moth

12 December, 2017

Moth watches“It is buzzing again,” said Voddick, tapping at his pin.

“More elementals?  I am regretting taking this contract to root out these summoners,” said Gollaon, nocking another arrow.

“Well, the pay is very good,” said Voddick sighting along his crossbow.

“Agreed and they did give us some useful tools to help.”

Fire-Eating Moth

These metallic pins are in fact bound elementals tasked with detecting other elementals and protecting the wearer.

When another elemental is near, the elemental beats its wings alerting the wearer of such (a +4 circumstance bonus to Perception checks if appropriate).

Against low levels of fire and heat, it provides a Resistance 3 to such damage, against greater quantities of flames (that would inflict ten or more points of damage) the moth flies out to consume it.  If the flames are natural, it extinguishes a ten by ten foot patch, if they are magical, it eats 6d6 points of fire damage.

It can consume up to three “meals” before it is sated for eight hours, during which none of its other powers function.

Aura faint conjuration; CL 5th
Slot neck; Price 4,500; Weight
Construction Requirements
Craft Wondrous Items, protection from energy, summon monster III; Cost 2,250

For D&D 5E:

First paragraph as above.

When another elemental is near, the elemental beats its wings alerting the wearer of such (advantage on Wisdom (Perception) rolls if appropriate).

Against low levels of fire and heat, it provides a Resistance to such damage, against greater quantities of flames (that would inflict ten or more points of damage) the moth flies out to consume it.  If the flames are natural, it extinguishes a ten by ten foot patch, if they are magical, it eats 6d6 points of fire damage.

It can consume up to three “meals” before it is sated, during which time none of its other powers function, until its wearer takes a long rest.

Notes: Random inspiration for the day, as being too hot is not the issue where I am.  Also, elemental powered magic items are always neat.
