Tuesday Magic Item – Negation Seal (A to Z, N)

16 April, 2019

Gollaon sauntered around the corner, turned on his heel and came back.  “We have to go,” he said to Voddick.”

“Why?” asked Voddick.

“Imperial Auditor,” Gollaon shot back.

“Oh?  Oh!” said Voddick and hurried to catch up.  “That cannot be good.”

“Indeed not.  I think we should not stick around to see the inevitable conclusion.”

“We can steal horses.”

Negation Seal

These seals bear the mark of their issuing power, by that empress, queen or high priestess, decorated in enamels or colored precious metal and are made from hard metal, often platinum, with the seal itself usually an equally hard stone.  The bearer must take an oath to serve and uphold the law of the issuing power and the seal only work as long as they maintain that oath.

While bearing the seal, the bearer is protected from illusions, charms and deception, gaining a +5 bonus to resist any of these effects.

Thrice per day, the seal may be used to sweep away the magic from a thing (not a person) as a greater dispel magic using a targeted dispel.  This is often used to find hidden record books and concealed valuables.

For D&D 5E:

First paragraph as above.

While bearing the seal, the bearer is protected from illusions, charms and deception, gaining advantage on any roll to resist these effects.

The seal may be used to sweep away the magic from a thing (not a person) as a dispel magic cast using an 8th level spell slot, this ability can be used three times before requiring a long rest on behalf of the bearer to reset the ability.  This is often used to find hidden record books and concealed valuables.

Notes: While a simple set of effects to describe, this item is quite powerful especially for its specific task.  Though if payer character had access to it, they could certain find some off brand ways to use it for other ends.
