                It’s Corite Week here at Necromancers of the Northwest, and I hope you are enjoying your new crystalline player character race. Now it’s time to suit up your new PCs with some items close to home. Check out this sweet new compliment of magical crystals to back your crystal-like characters up.


CRYSTAL ROD                  PRICE 12,000 gp
Slot none; CL 5th; Weight 3 lbs.
Aura faint evocation

                This rod is about 3 feet in length and formed out of three varieties of quartz crystal. The upper section is purple quartz, the center section is made of rose quartz, and the base is made of plain, clear quartz crystal. Being hollow, the rod is unusually light, and it uses the natural properties of quartz to create distinct magical effects when exposed to electricity.
                A crystal rod normally has no properties of its own, though it makes a serviceable bludgeon, functioning as a masterwork club. When exposed to electricity, however, the crystal rod can produce one of three magical effects. When the wielder suffers 1 or more points of electricity damage, the rod can produce one of the following effects; each effect can be produced once per day.
                The wielder may choose to have the rod hold that electricity within it, allowing it to deal 2d6 points of electricity damage whenever the wielder touches it to another character or object. The rod retains this electrical charge for 1 minute and can deliver this damage either as a standard action, requiring a touch attack, or whenever the wielder hits a creature or object with the rod as part of an attack.
                The rod can also be made to attune itself to electricity, causing it to draw electricity in the area to itself. This ability grants an additional 10 points of electricity resistance to all characters within 30 feet of the rod.
                Finally, the rod can immediately unleash a bolt of electrical damage as a ranged touch attack with a range of 100 feet, dealing 10d6 points of electricity damage on a successful hit.

FLUORITE ARMOR                        PRICE 21,650 gp
Slot armor; CL 15th; Weight 60 lbs.
Aura strong illusion

                Made from magically toughened fluorite, these suits of armor are made to an individual’s measurements and fit like a suit of full plate, though due to being made of natural materials, they can be worn by druids without violating their ethos. The suits are normally perfectly transparent, though those who focus their will can cause the armor to rapidly change colors.
                In addition to functioning as a suit of +1 full plate, a suit of fluorite armor can be commanded to take on extremely bright and vibrant colors. This can produce two effects. The first effect can be used to continually cause characters within 5 feet of the armor, including the wearer, to become sickened for 1d4 rounds unless they succeed on a Will save (DC 22). Regardless of whether or not the save is successful, characters that are subjected to this effect are immune to the effect for 1 minute. The second effect, which can be activated once per day, causes a burst of sickening colors to radiate out from the armor, causing the wearer and all characters within a 10-foot-radius spread centered on the wearer to become confused for 1 round, with no saving throw to resist the effect.

Craft Wondrous Item, scintillating pattern


RING OF DIAMONDS                    PRICE 30,000 gp
Slot ring; CL 13th Weight — lbs.
Aura strong conjuration

                This subtle magic item is a plain golden band with a prayer of salvation inscribed in the common tongue along the inside of the band. Set into the ring are three 5,000 gp diamonds, which can be detached from the ring and sold separately, though doing so diminishes the magical potential of the ring.
                Whenever the wearer of this ring casts a spell which returns a character to life, as a free action, the wearer may speak the prayer written on the ring and wish for the health of the returned, if he does, one of the diamonds crumbles to dust and when the target is returned to life, she suffers no negative levels or Constitution drain as a result of returned to life by that spell. When this ring no longer has any diamonds, it ceases to function.
