                Today we’re bringing the heat with a trio of fire-themed magic items. I’d tell you all about them, but frankly I can’t stand the heat, so I’m going to step aside and let you check out these sizzling hot pieces of treasure.


CLOAK OF THE FIRE BAT                           PRICE 27,750 gp

Slot shoulders; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
Aura faint varies

                These cloaks are typically black on the outside and bright red on the inside, and are often adorned with a bright red image of a flaming bat on the back. The wearer gains fire resistance 5 for as long as the cloak is worn. Further, he can breathe and see through smoke without difficulty (though this does not grant him protection from other things that may interfere with his breathing or sight, such as inhaled poisons or an obscuring mist spell). Finally, on command, the wearer can produce three fire shuriken from within the cloak, as the spell fiery shuriken (UC).

Construction Requirements       Cost 13,875 gp

Craft Wondrous Item, alter self, flaming shuriken, resist energy


FLAME BARRIER SHIELD                            PRICE 23,860 gp

Slot shield; CL 7th; Weight 45 lbs.
Aura moderate evocation

                These +1 tower shields are often charred black and coated with soot, and are often made of cast iron. Three times per day, on command, the wielder of a flame barrier shield can cause it to transform into a wall of flame. This functions as a wall of fire spell, except that the wall or ring of fire that is created must pass through at least one edge of the square that the wielder was in when the ability was activated, and the wall of fire remains in place until the shield’s command word is spoken. If the effect is dispelled, the shield simply returns to normal.

                None of the flame barrier shield’s unique abilities count as an enhancement bonus equivalent, and it is treated as a +1-equivalent shield for the purposes of the cost of further improving its magical abilities.

Construction Requirements       Cost 12,020 gp

Craft Magic Arms and Armor, wall of fire


MASK OF THE FIRE EATER                         PRICE 60,000 gp

Slot head; CL 15th; Weight 1 lb.
Aura strong abjuration

                These unusual masks are often garishly decorated in bright red, yellow, and orange, and almost always have a fire motif. As long as the mask is worn, the wearer ignores the first 50 points of fire damage that he would suffer each round. Further, for every 2 points of fire damage prevented in this way, the wearer gains 1 temporary hit point, which lasts for 1 minute. These temporary hit points stack with each other, but not with other sources of temporary hit points. If the wearer suffers more than 50 points of fire damage in a round, the mask has no effect on any damage beyond the first 50 points, even if the damage comes from multiple attacks or sources.

Construction Requirements       Cost 30,000 gp

Craft Wondrous Item, resist energy
