The strange, but beautiful drum appeared outside the gates of the City of Snovna-Rhoso without explanation. The city guards, being rather simple, took the drum to the castle of Vorsa, where those trying to impress the prince fawned over the drum and took turns trying to make the most wondrous music.
In the small hours something shadowy and sinister slipped over the walls of the city and befouled the temples of the gods of Snovna-Rhoso. When the people awoke a strange thing sat toad-like in the city’s center and the people saw the temples in ruin as their new god laughed.
This ancient drum framed in beautifully inlaid silver and white gold is a beautiful thing to behold. Mysteriously, this magic item is often found in cities or towns that appear to have been abandoned seemingly overnight…
Benefit: The Godcaller Drum can be played by hand or with a drumstick, and the drum makes a pleasant, deep bass drum sound to all who hear it. The magic of this drum resounds over the hills and to places high and low, calling out to wayward deities, offering them a home, often unbeknownst to the drummer. Any time the drum is played there is a 25% chance that a deity NOT associated with the area will hearken the call and come to investigate the melodious sounds of the magical drum. If the town already has a god (or gods) this can cause a terrible war to break out, and even if the town has no personal deity the citizens may be loathe to worship that which is summoned to the call.
Usable by: Anyone, but be careful what you wish for.
