Tuesday Magic Item – Social Climber’s Ladder

10 July, 2018

Ladder to love?“Are you sure it is wise to pursue the Doge’s child?” asked Voddick before taking a sip of ale.

“It is all in good fun beside not much chance that I will actually catch them,” replied Gollaon with a wide grin.

“You are successful more oft than not my friend.”

Gollaon nodded his thanks at the implied compliment.  “Besides, I have just reacquired one of these.”  He held up a necklace.

Voddick smiled.  “Ah, good to see.  Those sorts of necklaces have gotten us out of more than one scrape.  And into one or two as I recall.”

“Truth.”

Social Climber’s Ladder

These necklaces are always made with a ladder pattern but otherwise come in a variety of styles, they tend to be understated rather than flashy.

These items obscure the wearers motives for, whatever they may be doing, imposing a -4 circumstance penalty to any Sense Motive checks made against the wearer.

Once a day, the wearer may choose anyone person in their line of sight to be their loteby. with who they have a +2 bonus to Charisma, if they had some physical tie to the person (hair, nails or such), this bonus is increased to +4 and it applies to all Charisma based check and calculations (such as spell DCs).  The wearer may only have one lateby at a time.

Lastly, the necklace can unfold into an actual ladder of up to 45 foot (14m) that will attach itself to a surface, such as a window sill, and support the wearer or any other one person.  With a touch and a gesture from the wearer, it folds back into a necklace.  It can become a ladder once a day.

For D&D 5E:

First paragraph as above.

These items obscure the wearers motives for, whatever they may be doing, imposing disadvantage to any Insight rolls made against the wearer.

The wearer may choose anyone person in their line of sight to be their loteby. with who they have a +2 bonus to Charisma, if they had some physical tie to the person (hair, nails or such), this bonus is increased to +4 and it applies to all Charisma based check and calculations (such as spell DCs).  The wearer may only have one lateby at a time and the ability to select one is regained only after a long rest.

Lastly, the necklace can unfold into an actual ladder of up to 45 foot (14m) that will attach itself to a surface, such as a window sill, and support the wearer or any other one person.  With a touch and a gesture from the wearer, it folds back into a necklace.  It requires a long rest by the wearer before it can become a ladder again.

Notes: Another tool for the ambitious, a way to make friends and influence people.
