The bounty hunter Bakra-Do urged the peasants nearer. He eyed the crowd and decided they were near enough. Pulling a bell from his pouch he rang it several times.
‘Fire,’ was all he said.
A few moments later a spindly humanoid of fire crawled up out of the ground and knelt beside Bakra-Do.
‘Can you undo the work of the necromancer and light their torches?’ he asked.
Nodding, the faceless thing waved an arm over in front of the peasants. Suddenly all torches, lanterns and candles roared into bright flame.
Bakra-do bowed to the elemental who bowed in return and melted into the earth.
The smiling peasants offered coin, the bounty hunter refused their money.
‘I just ask for shelter for two nights to recover and I will be on the necromancer’s trail,’ he said solemnly.
Nodding and waving him towards the inn the happy peasants were thankful to be free of the minor curse, not being able to light anything themselves due to the vile tongue of the necromancer.
Bakra-Do stretched and relaxed, preparing himself for the long jaunt to hunt the necromancer down.
This small bronze bell can be held easily in one hand and can be rung without effort. A gift from a powerful druid to a village for saving his life. On the outside of the bell are many entwined elemental symbols.
Benefit: A magical bell that may be used up to four times per day, one for each elemental type. However, the elementals called upon can vary, such as two fire, one earth, one air, four fire, etc. Each conjured elemental is of the least type and may only accomplish small tasks, such as filling waterskins with clean water for a water elemental, lighting all torches, lanterns and candles in a 30′ radius for a fire elemental, causing a 30′ radius of clean air for an air elemental or excavating a 30’x30’x30′ area in the case of an earth elemental. These creatures can be convinced to fight for the bell’s bearer, but they only fight as 2HD creatures and can only do 1d4+2 points of damage maximum. Any tasks takes no more than a few minutes and the elemental leaves back to its plane.
Usable by: Anyone.
