Tuesday Magic Item – First Principle Ring

12 June, 2018

Does it have a ring of truth to it?“Philosophers,” Voddick almost spat.  “Prattling about the nature of reality and how we know what we know.”

“Well, at least it keeps them out of trouble and usually out of our way,” said Gollaon, refilling his friend’s mug.

“Still, reality it straightforward, it is this floor,” he stomped on the ground, “or this ale.”  He took a drink.

“”For us, yes, but we are practical people.  Now drink up.”

First Principle Ring

These rings are always plain and unadorned, lacking even marker’s marks.  But they are immensely durable and difficult to damage.

The wearer of the ring can always return to the first principle, as a free action all ongoing magical effects with a non-permanent duration are dispelled and the wearer gains an additional save against the effect with a +2 morale bonus against all other ongoing effects.  The ring can only be used once a day.

Aura strong abjuration; CL 13th
Slot ring; Price 30,000; Weight
Construction Requirements
Forge Ring, greater dispel magic, heroism; Cost 15,000

For D&D 5E:

Ring, rare (requires attunement)

First paragraph as above.

The wearer of the ring can always return to the first principle, as a free action all ongoing magical effects with a non-permanent duration are dispelled and the wearer gains an additional saving throw with advantage against all other ongoing effects.  The ring can only be used once before requiring a long rest to reset.

Notes: Always useful to have a way to escape, but it does strip all of your beneficial magics as well.  For those unfamiliar with the First Principle, it is the basic foundation of a philosophy or understanding.
