                It’s Friendship Week here at Necromancers of the Northwest, and no item symbolizes friendship quite as much as the friendship bracelet. This week’s Magic Market features items inspired by this summer camp tradition, which have great power when worn by two characters who share a close bond of friendship. So make sure that you note some of these items have no magic unless worn by a pair of characters, and all of them thrive on the concept of companionship.


ARMLETS OF ALLIANCE                              PRICE 4,000 gp

Slot wrists; CL 3rd; Weight 1 lb.
Aura faint enchantment

                These simple golden armbands are warm to the touch, though not unpleasantly so, and magically resize to comfortably fit on the arm of any creature wearing them. These armlets allow the wearer to be of more use to others in heated situations. Whenever the wearer of an armlet of alliance is flanking an opponent with another ally creature, the ally gains an additional +1 bonus to all attack rolls against that target opponent, so long as both he and the wearer are flanking the target. Additionally, whenever the wearer uses the aid another action, he increases the bonus granted by his aid another attempt by an additional +1. Finally, these armlets have a certain synchronicity with one another. If a creature wearing an armlet of alliance uses one of the armlet’s abilities to grant a bonus to another creature that is also wearing an armlet of alliance, that bonus is doubled.

BRACERS OF TEAMWORK                         PRICE 10,000 gp

Slot wrists; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
Aura faint universal

                These fine leather bracers are made from the hides of two oxen that spent many years pulling carts as part of the same team, and the spirit of these great beasts lives within the bracers, granting them their magic. These bracers are always sold in magically linked pairs and inspire a feeling of cooperation and confidence between the two characters who wear the linked sets. While two characters wear the bracers from a linked set, each wearer is treated as having all the teamwork feats possessed by the other (both wearers can benefit from these teamwork feats).

Construction Requirements       Cost 5,000 gp

Craft Wondrous Item, any two teamwork feats


HEROES’ BRACELETS                   PRICE 64,000 gp

Slot wrists; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
Aura faint transmutation

                These platinum bracelets are each set with a large opal in the center, which glows with an inner light and becomes brighter the nearer it comes to its twin. While these items have no power when worn individually, they grant increased power to those who wear them in pairs.

                These bracelets are always sold in pairs, and each bracelet of a pair must be worn by a separate creature in order for the item’s magic to function. These bracelets each bestow a +1 luck bonus to attack rolls and AC, so long as the wearers remain within 100 feet of each other. While within 30 feet of each other, these bonuses increases to +2. Finally, while adjacent to each other, these bonuses are further enhanced to +4.

Construction Requirements       Cost 32,000 gp

Craft Wondrous Item, heroism


SPELL-TUNED BRACERS                             PRICE 15,000 gp

Slot wrists; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
Aura faint abjuration

                These fine silver bracelets are inscribed with the arcane marks of the two wizards who crafted them to celebrate their bond of friendship. When worn by two separate individuals, the bracelets hum when brought close together.

                These magical bracelets must be worn by two creatures in order to have any effect. When worn, the paired bracelets allow the wearers to cast spells upon each other that they normally could not. The wearer of a pair of these bracelets can cast spells with a range of personal upon the other wearer of these bracelets, so long as both creatures are within 30 feet of each other (the spells effectively have a range of 30 feet when used in this way). Additionally, once per day, whenever the wearer of one of these bracelets is affected by a spell, he may choose to have it affect the other wearer of the bracelets as well, so long as the other wearer is willing.

Construction Requirements       Cost 7,500 gp
