Amulet of Ber


Beautiful red ruby seated in the golden gildwork of a half closed eyelid. Amulet causes unappreciated effects when rubbed or caressed.

Beautiful red ruby seated in the golden gildwork of a half closed eyelid. A silver chain with a platinum clasp is used to hang it over the neck.

Created by a rogue wizard for a lesser known thieves guild in the south. They would use the magic properties of the amulet to rob stores that dealt in jewelry. They would put a smudge on the ruby forcing the jeweler appraising it to rub the smudge off to better view the ruby.

After only a few heists, word got out in the jewelers guilds about the amulet and the thieves using it were quickly caught in a trap. Nobody knew what happen to the amulet after the jewelers captured it.

Magical Properties:
When rubbed or caressed the amulet acts like a drug and puts the person touching to sleep within a minute. The affects last anywhere from two to forty minutes. (1d20 x 2)

A basic and interesting item. It is not a "grand item" or something to base a campaign around, but a utilitarian item that can easily be installed in almost any fantasy campaign.

Not your best work, but not bad either by any stretch.

I should get around to posting something new myself.

Simple, but effective in some circumstances. Most jewellers I've run always have sufficient guards to discourage crime, so this item would need to be area-effect to be useful in such circumstances.

Dredged from the depths of the citadel. Another one of my finer pieces that I toiled over for hours and hours. This one was a one-off that we used in one of our games and had some fun with. That unvoted list is a wonder isn't it. :)

One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).
