Tuesday Magic Item – Collar of Deadly Reversal

16 June, 2020

Be safe, my petGollaon paced around the body, it was not a pretty sight.

Voddick shook his head,  “Unpleasant.  Some sort of foul magic?”

Gollaon nodded.  “If I am not mistaken, his own turned back upon him.”

Voddick looked again.  “In that case, he probably deserved it . . . evil feeds upon itself and all that.”

“Indeed, not let us make sure there are no more threats.”

“If there were, that should have scared them away,” Voddick said with a gesture to the body.

Collar of Deadly Reversal

These collars are always well made and often exceedingly fancy, hidden on the interior are an extremely complex set of interlocked protective runes.  They are only made for small and mostly harmless pets, nothing bigger than a small spaniel does to the nature of the magic involved which requires that the subject be comparatively harmless.  The person who puts the collar on the pet can (almost) always find it, feeling a gentle tug toward the pet and collar’s location.

These collars are embedded with very strong detection magic, making the person attuned to it able to find the pet and collar very easily.

But that is a deliberate blind, concealing the powerful protective magic layered into the collar.  When a deliberately lethal, or potential lethal (including transmogrification, plane shifts, and so on), spell or attack is made on the pet, it it reflected back at its caster who receives no save against it (if a save would be required) or who suffers a critical hit from their own attack.  The pat is also teleported 30′ away to the safest place that can be reached.  This effect only works once and after it is triggered as soon as the pet is reunited with its person, the collar flakes away to nothingness.

The collar can only be removed by the person who placed it there.

As above.

Notes: Laura and I were watching a show which had the scene where the villain does something horrible to a pet to show how evil he is trope and I said, why would not the owner (who is this case was a powerful hedge witch) have provided their pet with protection.  Thus this item was born.
