Tuesday Magic Item – Ring of Coins

14 September, 2021

Ring in process“That is a useful way to carry one’s money,”said Gollaon watching the coins appear below the buyer’s ring and fall into the merchant’s waiting hands.

“Yes and harder to steal than a pouch,”noted Voddick. “And even if you could, the coins can only be returned by their owner.”

“Wise precaution,” mused Gollaon.

Ring of Coins

These rings are made of woven bands of copper, silver and gold, its size waxes and wanes as it power is used, ranging from wide wires to a heavy ring that covers the finger from the knuckle to first joint.

The  ring gives the wearer a certain amount of confidence in social situations, for each quarter of the rings capacity that is filled, the wearer gains a +1 competence bonus to contested social rolls.

The ring can contain 500 coins, by touching the coin, it vanished into an extra dimensional space.  As coins are added, the appropriate band of the ring expands.  As a free action, the wearer may cause up to 100 coins, of their choice, to reappear.

Each ring has a ritual, that takes at least fifteen minutes, to transfer ownership of the ring and control of whatever coins may be stored within.

First paragraph as above.

The  ring gives the wearer a certain amount of confidence in social situations, if the right is half full or more, the wearer gains advantage on contested social rolls.

The ring can contain 500 coins, by touching the coin, it vanished into an extra dimensional space.  As coins are added, the appropriate band of the ring expands.  As a bonus action, the wearer may cause up to 100 coins, of their choice, to reappear.

Each ring has a ritual, that takes at least fifteen minutes, to transfer ownership of the ring and control of whatever coins may be stored within.  While the ring require a ritual and attunement to work, as long as the wearer on has one Ring of Coins, it does not could against their number of attuned items.

Notes: I try and do items that would be useful at conventions when I am off to GenCon, in this case, I am taking a modern idea (payment via phone or smart watch) and using magic to achieve a similar end.
