Tuesday Magic Item – Star of Fame

8 February, 2022

sparkling-starVoddick watched the woman walk past, he frowned and furrowed his brown in concentraition.  “I am sure I have seen her somewhere before . . . is she a noble?

Gollaon idly tapped their fingers on the hilt of their dagger.  “I think she would be pleased to be mistaken for such, but I believe she is an actress.”

“Indeed?” asked Voddick.  “She seemed so . . . regal.”

“Truth,” nodded Gollaon.  “I suspect her natural . . . grace had been enhanced by a minor glamour.”

“So often it is the case,” replied Voddick. “We should see if we could catch one of her shows.”

Star of Fame

These pieces of jewellery are designed to be noticed which occasionally caused them to drift into garish designs but at the very least they are always flashy.  They can be worn as a broach, amulet or hair or hat ornament as long as they can be seen by all.

The star must be displayed for its magic to take effect.  The wearer feels a great sense of confidence and control, gaining a +2 morale bonus to saves against Fear, while it is so displayed.

Those meeting with the wearer percieve them as someone important, someone worth treating with respect and listening to.  The wearer gains a +5 competence bonus on Charisma-based skill checks.  As long as the wearer continues to make successful Charisma checks against someone, the bonus remains, but should they fail, the bonus vanishes for dealing with that person for a full day.

Aura moderate enchantment; CL 5th

For D&D 5E:

Wondrous item (star jewellery), uncommon

First paragraph as above.

The star must be displayed for its magic to take effect.  The wearer feels a great sense of confidence and control, gaining a +1 bonus to saving throws against Fear, while it is so displayed.

Those meeting with the wearer percieve them as someone important, someone worth treating with respect and listening to.  The wearer gains advantage on all Charisma attribute checks.  As long as the wearer continues to make successful Charisma attribute checks against someone, the advantage on rolls remains, but should they fail, the advantage vanishes for dealing with that person for a full day.

Notes: Partly inspired by the fact that today is the day the Hollywood Walk of Fame opened, where famous people are marked by stars.
