New Magic Item – Equinox Amulet

21 September, 2021

Amulet“We have never asked to be witnesses to a duel of magics before, I am not sure what is expected,” said Voddick quietly pausing the adjustment of the protective gear.

“I think we are primarily here in case something goes very, very wrong we are to keep crazed wizards or summoned demons from escaping the circle of combat,” replied Voddick, having just strung a longbow in preparation.

“That we can do.” Voddick slipped an axe into his belt loop.

“We have done such tasks before after all.”

Equinox Amulet

These amulets are made of a precise balance of black and white materials, evenly (and visibly evenly) divided.  They always seem at a perfectly neutral temperature, never hot nor cold.

The amulet is designed to enhance balance in ways both physical and metaphysical.  The wearer gains a +4 competence bonus to checks that rely on balance and a +4 resistance bonus to saves against effects that try to invoke extreme emotional or mental states (confusion, fear, rage, usw.),

But the greater power is that the wearer gains is Resistance 10 + the higher or their Charisma or Wisdom modifier to an energy type of their choice, chosen every morning.  Additionally, when struck by the opposing energy type, half of that damage is changed to their type the wearer has resistance to.

Use this to determine resistance/vulnerability pairs:

  • Acid opposes Electricity or Sonic
  • Cold opposes Fire
  • Negative Energy opposes Positive Energy

On the Equinox, the wearer may choose two energy types to be resistant to for the day, and may choose to reroll any one check or save that the amulet gives a bonus to.

First paragraph as above.

The amulet is designed to enhance balance in ways both physical and metaphysical.  The wearer gains a advantage to checks that rely on balance and to saving throws against effects that try to invoke extreme emotional or mental states (confusion, fear, rage, usw.),

But the greater power is that the wearer gains is Resistance to an energy type of their choice, chosen every morning.  Additionally, when struck by the opposing energy type, half of that damage is changed to their type the wearer has resistance to.

Use this to determine resistance/vulnerability pairs:

  • Acid opposes Lightning or Thunder
  • Cold opposes Fire
  • Necrotic opposes Radiant

On the Equinox, the wearer may choose two energy types to be resistant to for the day, and may choose to reroll any one check or save that the amulet gives advantage to.
