Tuesday Magic Item – Women’s Banner of Progress

18 August, 2020

Forward!“It is nice to see such passion,” Gollaon said, keeping pace with the parade, the brightly colored banner leading the way.

“Though it seems odd that they must fight for such,” said Voddick.  “In my homeland, everyone is encouraged to seek the path they are best suited for.  All have a voice appropriate to their success.”

“As it should be but not all are so enlightened or practical,” Gollaon said with a grin.  “Let us work out how we can lend our support.”

“But we should be looking for a paying job?”

“This is the right thing to do.”

“Well, you are not wrong about that.”

Women’s Banner of Progress

These banners are always bright and colorful and thus highly visible, occasionally even crossing to the impracticably large, designed to inspire.

The effects of the banner reaches out to 120′ from the banner while it is held.  Those aligned with the banner’s purpose gain a +4 morale bonus against Fear and a +2 bonus on any Charisma-based skill used to persuade people to listen to their cause.

As long as those who follow the banner to not initiate violence, the banner protects them, providing a +1 shield bonus to armor class and when attacked for the first time, gain 3d4 + the banner bearer’s Charisma bonus (if positive) temporary hit points for the next ten minutes.  For the bearer, these effects are doubled.  A person can only gain temporary hit points from the banner once a day.

First paragraph as above.

The effects of the banner reaches out to 120′ from the banner while it is held.  Those aligned with the banner’s purpose gains advantage to saving throws against Fear and a +1 bonus on any Charisma check used to persuade people to listen to their cause.

As long as those who follow the banner to not initiate violence, the banner protects them, providing a +1 bonus to armor class and when attacked for the first time, gain 3d4+ the banner bearer’s Charisma bonus (if positive) temporary hit points for the next ten minutes.  For the bearer, these effects are doubled.  Once a person has gained temporary hit points from the banner they must have a long rest before they can benefit from them again.
