Amulet of Taunting Enemies
Navnen the thief dodged the swing of the ruffian. Laughing, he took the silver amulet from his neck and threw it to Chalk. The thug that was about to attack the thief suddenly stopped and shook his head as if to clear out the cobwebs and looked around dazed. But another patron of the inn snarled at Chalk and began a spell that the wizard was too slow to avoid. Shadowy tentacles grabbed Chalk and smashed him against a wall then knocked over several tables and chairs with the spellcaster before Koram and the others could free their companion. Wearily Chalk removed the amulet and handed it towards Valance.
‘With my gambling and scams, in this place?’ asked the priest of the Spider God. ‘No thank you! With my schemes we’d have the entire inn turned against us. Tuck that thing away until we really need it.’
Created ages ago by a wizard trying to help a would be Hero this odd magic item often seems to cause as much harm as it does good, but it certainly does one thing very well, this magic item quickly sorts out friend from foe. The amulet appears as a small silver stylized mocking face.
Benefit: This small, silvery amulet constantly works its subtle magic. Silent to all allies and friends, to enemies and adversaries this small amulet mocks and belittles those who would do harm to the wearer, goading enemies to attack. The high, thin voice enrages those affected who have a -2 ability to hit the charm’s bearer should they attack, although they are not forced to, this mockery has an 80% chance of driving anyone berserk enough to try to hit the wearer per turn (10 minutes). If removed the magic instantly renders the amulet inert and anyone who was enraged at the wearer suddenly is no longer in that state, yet is still free to attack or remain calm.
Usable by: Anyone.
