Tuesday Magic Item – Silver Bells of Winter

19 December, 2017

Dashing through the snowVoddick trudged through the snow.  “Not much further now, yes?”

“If we have followed the route correctly we should make it to the town by nightfall,” replied Gollaon.

“I hope so, it is cold enough as it is.”

A distant but approaching ringing brought the mercenaries hands to their weapons as a sled pulled by a horse bedecked by bells.  The driver reined in.  “Ho travelers!  Headed to town?  Climb aboard, there is room for you.”

“Thank you,” said the pair in unison.

Silver Bells of Winter

These sets of silver bells are usually found attached to a harness and only work in sets of six or more.  They have a lovely, cheerful tone when shaken by the movement of those wearing them.

They protect the wearer from cold weather (as endure elements, but only for cold) and provides a +4 competence bonus to any check or save to avoid slipping on ice or snow.  Additionally, the bells keep the animal calmed and contented, providing a +4 competence bonus to Animal Handling and Riding checks.

The bells can be worn by a person and provide the same protection against cold and slipping but also negates any attempt at stealth, the bells are too cheerful to be silenced.
