This regal helmet is made of jet black granite, and trimmed with gold. Despite it’s dense materials it is not overly heavy. If you have horns the helmet gladly morphs to fit.
While attuned to this helmet you gain the following features.
You gain proficiency in Constitution saving throws and Athletics checks. You also gain fluent knowledge of the Giant and Terran languages.
While wearing this helmet your strength score changes to 20 unless your strength is already greater than 20, and it can not be reduced below 20 while you are wearing the helmet. Additionally, if a rock or similar object is thrown at you you can, with a successful DC 10 Dexterity saving throw, catch it and take no bludgeoning damage from it.
As an action you can envelope creatures near you with an immense crushing presence. Each creature of your choice within 60 feet must succeed on a DC 18 Wisdom saving throw or become Frightened of you for 1 minute. A creature frightened in this way sees you appear to grow up to 18 feet tall, or as large as the space around you allows, and takes an additional 2d6 psychic damage each time you hit them with a melee weapon or unarmed attack. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. After you use this feature you can not use it again until the end of a long or short rest.
This stoppered flask has a faint, nearly indistinguishable sound when shaken. The decanter weighs 2 pounds. This item has 6 charges and regains all expended charges each day at dawn.
You can use an action to remove the stopper and speak one of three Command words, whereupon sand pours out of the flask and a number of charges are expended. The sand stops pouring out at the start of your next turn. Choose from the following options:
- “Pile” expends one charge to create a small pile of sand that can cover a 1-foot-square.
- “Dune” expends three charges to create a pile of sand that is 10 feet across and is about 5 feet tall. This sand is expelled with some force, and moves Large or smaller creatures that would be covered by the sand to the edge of the pile.
- “Desert” expends 6 charges to create a veritable sea of sand that erupts from the decanter as a 30 foot geyser. This sand covers a a 20-foot circle and is up to 10 feet deep at it’s center. Any creature in the radius of the sand is pushed towards the edge of the area until it would no longer be covered by sand, unless it has a burrow speed.
This glistening blue-gray scale mail is made from overlapping plates of a glossy material you can’t identify, but it is certainly not metallic. While wearing this armor you have a burrow speed of 20 feet through sand or loose earth, and can still breathe even while completely encased in dirt, sand, or other similar materials.
The shaft of this staff is made from a petrified branch, worked to almost a mirror finish. It is topped with a large chunk of obsidian that comes to a twisted point. This staff has 5 charges and regains 1d4+1 expended charges each day at dawn. While attuned to this staff you can tell how long ago volcanic rock was formed, and what type it is.
As an action you can expend a charge from this staff and aim it at a point on the ground or a wall within 60 feet. When you do so the obsidian glows white-hot and a pinpoint ray of immense heat fires from the staff. Each creature within 5 feet of the ray, or 15 feet of the target point, must make a DC 16 Dexterity saving throw. A creature takes 4d6 fire damage and 4d6 radiant damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. If an area affected by this ray is composed of sand or stone it too becomes white-hot before turning to a black glass over the course of a minute, and any creature that starts its turn touching the area during that time takes 2d6 fire damage.
This black leather gauntlet has an intricate bronze ridge down it’s back with five carefully cut stone “gems” set in it’s winding pattern. You can focus on these gems and choose an area of terrain no larger than a 40-foot-cube within 120 feet that you can see. You can reshape dirt, sand, or clay in this area in any manner you choose so long as you maintain concentration (as if concentrating on a spell) for at least the duration required to do so: to reshape a 10-foot-cube it takes an action, 1 minute for a 25-foot cube, and 10 minutes for a 40-foot-cube.
You can raise or lower the area’s elevation, create or fill in a trench, erect or flatten a wall, or form a pillar. The extent of any such changes can’t exceed half the area’s largest dimension. So, if you affect a 40-foot cube, you can create a pillar up to 20 feet high, raise or lower the area’s elevation by up to 20 feet, dig a trench up to 20 feet deep, and so on. It takes the entire duration for these changes to complete. Because the terrain’s transformation occurs slowly, creatures in the area can’t usually be trapped or injured by the ground’s movement.
This effect doesn’t directly affect plant growth, natural stone, or structures. The moved earth carries any of these things along with it. If the way you shape the terrain would make a structure unstable, it might collapse. Similarly, if these transformations would make the terrain itself unstable it will collapse when you stop concentrating on it.
This tiny crystal sphere has an intensely detailed mountain covered in loose snow. When you shake it the snow flies around the miniature landscape, creating a swirling snowstorm. The wind in this diorama always blows towards the peak of the tallest mountain in your current plane of existence.
This tall rectangular shield is lavishly emblazoned with a towering mountain and set with onyx. As a bonus action while standing on stone or earth you may activate the shield to create a 5-foot-square pillar of stone and onyx in an unoccupied space within 30 feet of you that rises to a height of 15 feet or until it meets the ceiling. This pillar sinks back down into the earth after 1 minute, or when you create another pillar, leaving the ground undisturbed.
This dark pebble is etched with minute circular patterns and has a single ridge running around its circumference. When you hold it you feel as if the earth itself is whispering to you, suggesting you swallow the pebble to get closer to it and understand it better. When swallowed, you notice nothing at all for 1d4 days, until you feel a sudden chill and stiffening along your spine. Over the next few minutes your skin darkens and hardens. Fractured plates of stone grow from underneath your skin on your arms, ribs, and jutting along your spine across your back. You gain resistance to piercing, slashing, and lightning damage as well as tremorsense out to 30 feet. Additionally, as an action, if you put your ear to the ground and concentrate as if concentrating on a spell you gain tremorsense out to 500 feet until you move from that spot or lose concentration, whichever comes first.
Curse. Once your flesh has started turning to stone you have vulnerability to Thunder damage. Additionally, while within sight of a chosen mountain each morning you hear it whisper to you, calling you to it, and you must succeed on a DC 8 Wisdom saving throw or spend that day compelled to walk towards the base of the peak. This compulsion is not mind control, and you do nothing rash to follow it, but it is a constant distraction and pull while you are not trying to travel towards the mountains. These effects, including your skin’s appearance, can not be reversed except by a
This piton is made of folded iron and confusingly heavy. It functions as a normal piton, however after 1 minute of contact with solid stone the rocks around it trembles and coalesces to form a stone foothold with no seams or cracks.
This marbled stone pick is reinforced with black iron bands. It has obviously been imbued with magic to have lasted this long without shattering. This magical item has 10 charges and regains 1d8+2 expended charges each day at dawn.
If you are standing on soil or stone, as an action you can strike the ground and expend a number of charges while concentrating as if concentrating on a spell, causing the earth to ripple around you. When you do so you target a number of 10-foot square areas of soil or stone within 120 feet, equal to the number of charges expended, which rise up to create a bluff. You can choose for each of these target areas’ sides to slope gradually, or be a sheer cliff up to 10 feet tall, so long as at least one side is an incline. If you maintain concentration on this effect for the next hour the bluffs become permanent and can’t be dispelled. Otherwise, the bluffs sink back into the earth.
As an action you can target any area you can see that was targeted by the Molehill feature within the past day and expend a charge for each targeted area. At each targeted area a 10-foot square pillar of stone bursts from the ground and rises to a height of up to 20 feet. If a pillar is created under a creature, that creature must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw, DC 17, or be lifted by the pillar. A creature can choose to fail the save. If a pillar is prevented from reaching its full height because of a ceiling or other obstacle, such as a Huge or larger creature, a creature on the pillar takes 6d6 bludgeoning damage and is restrained, pinched between the pillar and the obstacle. The restrained creature can use an action to make a Strength or Dexterity check (the creature’s choice), DC 17. On a success the creature is no longer restrained and must either move off the pillar or fall off it.
This smooth stone staff is covered in frost and topped with an abstract intricate sculpture of ice. This staff never melts or thaws, and at high altitudes snowflakes dance around it’s base. This staff has 4 charges and regains 1d4 expended charges each day at dawn. If the temperature is below freezing at dawn it regains all it’s charges.
If you are not a spellcaster you use Wisdom as your spellcasting modifier for this item’s effects. While attuned to this staff you do not suffer from the effects of traveling at high altitude, and know the cantrip
This flashy amulet has an impressively large green emerald as it’s centerpiece and is ornamented with onyx and blackened steel. When you slip it over your head you can hear it speak to you, and know that it holds a fragment of a dragon’s consciousness within it.
When you are attuned to this amulet as you wear it it begins to change even your physical body the presence within it is so powerful. Over the course of a month jet black scales grow down your spine and your eyes become emerald green. You gain immunity to acid damage, resistance to poison damage, and darkvision out to 120 feet if you did not have it before. If you unattune from this amulet you lose these benefits, but your scales and eyes remain.
As an action if you are within the area of poisonous or harmful gases you can breathe in the toxins surrounding you and exhale a roiling stream of acid and poison 60 feet long and 10 feet wide. Each creature in the line must make a DC 18 Constitution saving throw, taking 4d8 Acid damage and 4d8 Poison damage on a failed throw or half as much on a successful one. If breathing the gas in this way would cause you to make a saving throw you make that save with advantage.
Master of Fear
You can not be frightened by any creature with a CR less than or equal to 13. Additionally, any Adult or younger dragon that tries to use their Frightful Presence feature on you must instead make a saving throw against their own effect.
Sentience. Zarlandris is a sentient chaotic evil amulet with an Intelligence of 20, Wisdom of 18, and a Charisma of 24. It has proficiency in Insight, Deception, and Charisma saving throws, with a proficiency bonus of +6, and it has hearing and blindsight out to a range of 120 feet. The amulet can speak, and understand Common and Draconic, but can only communicate telepathically with its wearer. Its voice is low and rumbling but soothing in a way.
Personality. Zarlandris speaks quietly but with authority that only comes with age and immense confidence. His only goal is resurrection and to be freed from the amulet. He is not friendly, and never will be, but will play the part of a wise grandfather giving sage advice and encouragement, and will do almost anything including lying or getting the wearer killed if he thinks it will sway the wearer closer to his selfish goal. Doing what he must to gain trust is just a part of this scheme, even if he does not enjoy it. Zarlandris is clever and has endless patience, and will never lash out or grow impatient unless he believes he is within reach of his centuries-long goal.
