Magic-Negating Jewelry


A small collection of magic items intended to limit or negate the powers of a magic user

The Bondage of Power
One of the most continually sought after applications of metallurgy, alchemy and magic in general was the negation of magic use in others. With spells not always requiring material components, a mage that was not bound and gagged could potentially be a threat. There were some powerful mages who could work their magic with thought alone. Ethics demanded a way to control such powers when the magi who possessed them broke the laws of man as well as the laws of nature.

Magic/Cursed Properties
A piece of magic-negating jewelry can either hinder a mages ability to work magic, hobbling him but not completely robbing him of his power, or it can be intended to completely cut him off from the ability to do magic. Most pieces that hinder magic power are typically voluntary in nature for magi who have more power than ability, while the completely negating pieces are more geared towards imprisonment and such.

Manacles of the Mind
These silver and steel manacles were forged in recent years and serve a dual role, the physical restraint of the arms as well as a complete negation of a magic-user's ability to do magic. The metal of the manacles must be in direct contact with the skin to impede the working of magic, otherwise they are shiny and expensive bracelets. The manacles can be picked by mundane means, and they can be broken by force, though most mages tend to be on the scrawny side rather than the brawny. Magic users find the manacles cold to the touch and wearing them more than 24 hours causes a headache that gradually increases as long as the manacles are worn.

The Amulet of Restraint
It comes to pass, from time to time, that there are magic users whose ability to channel magic far excedes their ability to control it. In more primitive says these poor souls would be made pariahs, cast out into the wilderness so that their raw power did little harm to their peers. In more enlightened times, the Amulet of Restraint exists not to cut off a mage's ability to channel power, but to limit it.

Most often a piece of jewelry, brightly colored, the Amulet of Restraint reduces a mage's ability to cast spells be a preset amount, with most Amulets reducing magic power by roughly 20% to 50% of it's maximum.

This is one that a few different people have done before, but we've never gathered them together until this. Are we also accepting submissions of items already created?

If this list extended to items carried by others to protect them from bad magic - like witchcraft, I think we could greatly increase it's utility. Items that ward off the evil eye, etc, sound like they would fit.

The journey had been a long one and now they had entered the mountains. After an entire day spent on paths cut into the mountainside and through moss covered coniferous woods, they encounter a desperate young mountain tribal. He is searching for his beloved wife and his elder brother, both of whom he got separated from after an unsuccessful attempt to kill a cave bear. The last thing he saw was the cave bear in full pursuit of his wife. He could not help her as he had been knocked to the ground by the raging beast, and was struggling to regain full consciousness. The tribal will be clearly nervous and urges them to look for his wife during their travels. He will stay in his village a couple of miles to the north and pleads for assistance should they recover his wife, whether she be dead or alive.

On the next day of travel, they will journey upon a dim track in the forest and while they are preparing to ascend another path cut into the mountainside, they hear moans of lust from somewhere nearby. Upon closer inspection they will spy a young tribal woman in the heat of the act with an elder tribal male. They are consummating their forbidden love on the cold mountain moss, and beside them lay the skinned and slaughtered carcass of a huge bear.
