Tuesday Magic Item – Festival Blessing Token

24 December, 2019

Take this and be safeVoddick put his feet up by the fire and sipped at his posset.  “Good to have some time to just rest without madmen and monster chasing after us.”

Gollaon swirled the mulled wine is his goblet.  “Truth, my friend.”

“While reflection, indeed, having the time to reflect, is not in our usual purview,” said Voddick, “it occurs to me now, that this is why I fight.  To allow people to have these happy times, free from fear.”

“It is a good goal,” nodded Gollaon. “And, yes, one I share in.  I would love to see a peaceful world, full of festivals and good cheer.”

“And it would give you more time for your preferred pursuits,” replied Voddick with a wink.

“There is truth to it though . . .”

Festival Blessing Token

These simple tokens are given as gifts during festivals, usually by friends and family, and their magic lasts until expended (or a year has passed) which ever comes first.  In fact, their magic only is activated when given as a gift during a festival, they tap into the enchantment generated by the event to activate their abilities.  Though a person may only have one of these items active at a time, not matter how many they received.

While being worn or carried, the bearer gains a +1 sacred bonus to saves against fear due to the feeling of safety it engenders.  When the bearer fails a save against hostile magic, disease or poison, they may reroll the save once, if the save if successful, the token’s magic is expended.  If not, it can be used again on a later save.

First paragraph as above.

While being worn or carried, the bearer can reroll a natural “1” on a saving throw against fear due to the feeling of safety it engenders.  When the bearer fails a saving throw against hostile magic, disease or poison, they may reroll the save once, if the save if successful, the token’s magic is expended.  If not, it can be used again on a later save.

Notes: It has been a bit since I did something folk magic-ish and last week’s item (the Festival Dice) made me think about how more items should be empowered by things like festivals.  They are vast gathering of potential energy that people should have found a way to focus and shape into small magic item.

Also, Happy Christmas Eve all!
