Blue Arcing Blade weapon(any sword), rare (requires attunement)

When you find this weapon it has lightning coming off it in tendrils, arcing to almost any object or surface within 5 feet of it. When you get closer you notice that it’s made of a bright blue metal with white streaks running through it. It has a gold handle with a sapphire embed in the hilt.

Until it is attuned with a creature every time you attempt to pick it up you must succeed on a DC 12 Constitution saving throw or take 1d4 lightning damage.

Water Affinity.

As an attack action you can stab this sword into a body of water and target a creature you can see within 10 feet of the body of water. That creature must make a Dexterity saving throw or take 2d10 lightning damage. If you are not a spellcaster this uses your Constitution modifier as your spellcasting ability.

If this sword has not touched water in over a week it must be fully submerged in water for at least a long rest to regain this property. While it is doing so it sparks slightly and the water tingles with electricity.

Curse. Every time you stab this sword into a body of water you must make a DC 12 Constitution saving throw or take 1d10 lightning damage. Additionally, you have disadvantage to saving throws against other effects that deal lightning damage.

If this weapon is fully submerged for a day or more the water surrounding begins actively arcing with electricity and any creature that attempts to take it out of the water must make a DC 12 Constitution saving throw or take 1d10 lightning damage for each day it has been submerged.

Curse Purge. There is a way to purge this item of its curse.

If a creature is attuned to this weapon and takes more than 30 damage in one hit while taking it out of the water or the weapon has been fully submerged for over a week without being disturbed the electricity constantly arcing off of it is now contained to the sword, and the arcs of electricity run up and down the length of the blade instead. The curse is now completely gone and additionally the weapon gains a new ability that the player learns about.

Once per day as an action you can activate the sword and a dark roiling fog coalesces around your feet out to a radius of 30 feet. For the next minute this fog follows you and sparks crackle through it. Once per turn you can choose a point within the fog as a bonus action. A surge of lightning erupts from that point and all creatures within 5 feet of that point except yourself must make a Dexterity saving throw. If you are not a spellcaster this uses your Constitution modifier as your spellcasting ability. The affected creatures take 3d10 lightning damage on a failed save or half as much damage on a successful one.

Artist’s Flair.

When you cast a spell you can create one minor visual effect as if with the cantrip Prestidigitation or make a visual change to the spell such as adding a color, changing its color, or making it appear to take on a shape.

Advanced Spell Sculpting.

When you cast a Conjuration, Evocation, or Necromancy spell you are able to create pockets of relative safety. When you cast a spell from any of these schools with a duration of instantaneous you can choose a number of creatures you can see equal to 1 + the spell’s level. The chosen creatures automatically succeed on their saving throws against the spell, and they take no damage if they would normally take half damage on a successful save.

if the duration is longer than instantaneous you can choose a spherical or conical area equal to up to half of the spell’s area that is not affected by the spell. As an action on any of your following turns you can change the area of the spell affected if the spell is still active. However the spell can never affect less than half its area or leave the area it would occupy if it was cast normally.

Wooden Walker of the Circle wondrous, very rare

This vehicle appears to be a hollowed out tree covered in vines and branches, still alive and growing. It has two seats facing towards the middle of the vehicle where it has a set of three wooden levers. While a creature is sitting in the walker it has half cover, can fasten themselves to the walker as a bonus action, and can control it as an action or bonus action to move up to 30 feet per round.

The walker can carry up to 400 pounds, its speed is halved if the weight exceeds this, and reduced to 0 if it exceeds 600 pounds. It needs to recharge and return to nature though. When it runs out of energy it will refuse to carry any weight and search for the nearest soil it can find to root itself in. It can remain active for up to 16 hours, after which it needs to root in soil or sand for the duration of a long rest. During this time it closes its hollow and looks just like a stout tree approximately 6 feet tall, covered in vines.

Commune with the Circle.

If you know druidic you can verbally command the walker to move (using druidic) as long as it is in hearing range. Additionally, you can command it to root, unroot, and close its hollow. It will not close its hollow while a small or larger creature is in it but it can close its hollow with up to 200 pounds in it. For every hour it is rooted it can remain active for an additional 2 hours that day.

Notes: The player can later find more swords if you want to make it increase in power slowly, or even find more than 6. Nothing says they can’t eventually have a dozen of these wraith swords.

Ring of the Golden Defender ring, varies

This polished gold ring has a thick ivory inlay. As soon as you attune to it it reaches out to you, impressing upon you to put it on the first finger of your dominant hand. It can not speak, but it can communicate to you through ideas, images, and emotions.

Stages of Power. The desire of this ring is to protect other innocent creatures lives. If you earn the trust of the ring by showing your devotion to the protection of creatures around you and going beyond the call of duty to do so it will grant you power. When you attune with it you start at the Ring Stage, and move forward as the ring decides you are trustworthy. However if you betray the trust of the ring, you may move back a stage. Each stage of power has access to all the abilities of the stage before it. As an action you can transform the ring into any stage it allows you to have access to.

Ring Stage (Rare)

While the ring is content, and you wear it on your first finger, it grants you basic abilities.

Brilliant Presence. As an action you can cast the cantrip Light. Additionally, you can maintain up to three instances of Light, instead of one.
Shield of Gold. Once per long rest you can cast Shield with a range of 15 feet. This reaction is triggered by a creature, other than yourself, that is within range being attacked or targeted by the spell Magic Missile. This shield appears as a golden sphere around the target.

Glove Stage (Very Rare)

The ring stretches out tendrils of ivory, coating your hand and wrist. The ivory forms into plates and gold trim manifests as they harden. Strands arch from the ring onto the gold edged glove and to each finger. The entire system of white arches and plates seems to weigh almost nothing as if it is floating around your hand.

Defender’s Blessing. Once per day as an action while wearing this gauntlet you can fire a beam of brilliant yellow light in a 5 foot wide, 60 foot line from the gauntlet. Each creature in this line must make a Constitution saving throw. On a failed save a creature takes 8d6 Radiant damage and is blinded until your next turn. On a successful save it takes half as much damage and is not blinded. Undead and oozes have disadvantage on this saving throw. This beam counts as a 3rd level light spell for the sake of dispelling magical darkness.
Divine Fist. Your unarmed strikes deal 1d4 damage while wearing the gauntlet. Additionally you can choose to deal Radiant damage instead of bludgeoning damage.

Gauntlet Stage (Very Rare)

The ring sprouts a dense network of ivory and gold tendrils, covering even your upper arm, up to your shoulder. Each gold trimmed plate is connected with a series of ivory strands all gracefully twisting back to the ring. You move unhindered by this long gauntlet, as if it floats effortlessly just above your skin.

Golden Circuitry. You now have a pool of 3 charges stored in the gauntlet. As a reaction you can expend a number of charges to activate Shield of Gold, even if it has already been used, on a number of creatures equal to the charges expended. Additionally, as an action you can expend a charge to cast Cure Wounds, on a creature other than yourself, with a +5 spellcasting modifier. The gauntlet regains all expended charges at dawn.
Divine Fist. Your Divine Fist increases in power, it now deals 1d8 + your Strength or Wisdom modifier Radiant damage.
Telepathic Bond. The ring is connected to you so deeply it can now telepathically speak to you with words in addition to images and emotions, although its words are few.

Shield Stage (Legendary)

The ring covers your shoulder in a graceful paldron, heavily decorated with gold. Additionally a plate begins growing over your forearm and then detaches, floating 3 inches from your arm. This plate slowly forms a shining white kiteshield, with the golden symbol of an intricate shield in its center. While the ring is in this form and its shield is protecting you, you have +2 AC if you are not already wielding a shield.

Selfless Defense. As a bonus action you can command the ring to shield another creature within 30 feet. Until they end their turn farther than 30 feet away or you issue a new command the shield will hover by them, granting them +2 AC. While you are using this feature you can not benefit from the shield.
Golden Circuitry. The pool of charges stored in the gauntlet increases to your level/2 rounded down (minimum of 3).

This item can also be used without its legacy (growing) mechanic. Just pick a stage and treat it as if that is all the item has to offer.

Ring of Eldritch Energy ring, rare (requires attunement by a spellcaster)

This bone ring has a deep purple inlay, and is set with an onyx. While wearing this ring, every short rest you take you gain 1d6+4 temporary hit points.
As a bonus action you can choose to expend all remaining temporary hit points gained in this way to cast Eldritch Blast even if you do not know it.
Additionally, while attuned to the ring you know the cantrip Chill Touch, and can cast it using the ring as a focus.

Curse. Each time you gain temporary hit points from this ring it consumes a hit die. If there are no hit dice to be consumed you take damage equal to the temporary hit points gained, although you can not drop below 1 hit point from this effect.

Permanent Curse. The first time the ring consumes any of your hit points it becomes permanently attuned to your very soul.
The ring dissolves into your finger, the finger withers, and purple veins spider through your hand from the finger. Now when you cast eldritch blast using your temporary hit points it originates from your chest, ignoring verbal and somatic components, but leaves a dull purple mark where it originated. The veins in your hand and the purple mark spread almost imperceptibly each time you do this. After your finger withers Chill Touch can still be cast, also ignoring verbal and somatic components, eminating from your withered finger.
When cursed in this way the curse and attunement can not be removed without destroying the soul of the creature bound to the ring.

Cloak of Conspicuous Armor wondrous, common

As an action while wearing this gray pleated cloak you can wrap it around yourself and choose a type of heavy armor. You immediately appear to be wearing the armor you choose. This armor appears polished as if it is brand new, and with embellishments of your choice. This does not affect your AC and you are not considered to be wearing armor for the sake of any bonuses. This effect lasts until you remove the cloak or dispel it as an action. If a creature touches the armor, or makes a successful Intelligence (Investigation) check DC 15, they are immediately aware of the illusion but otherwise they are convinced so long as they did not see you begin the illusion.

It has been rumored to have been originally found when it was flung through a window, carried from a shipment of china by a violent storm.

Calm Before the Storm

During a short rest if you drink tea from this teacup you regain all expended charges and your exhaustion decreases by 1 level. The tea can be of any type but must be hot when you drink it. You also regain 1 charge each long rest that you take.

Cyclone

As an action while raging you can expend a charge to attack your enemies with the strength of the storm. As the winds swirl around you you make long sweeping attacks at all enemies within 5 feet. All hostile creatures within range must make a Dexterity saving throw with a DC equal to 8 + your proficiency + your strength modifier. On a failed save they take damage equivalent to two of your weapon attacks.

Heart of the Storm

When you activate your rage you can choose to expend all 5 charges to release the full power of the tempest. A 20-foot radius sphere of whirling air springs into existence centered on you that follows you until your rage ends. Each creature (not including you) that ends its turn in the sphere must succeed a Strength saving throw with a DC equal to 8 + your proficiency + your strength modifier. On a failed save they take 2d6 bludgeoning damage. Additionally the sphere’s space is difficult terrain for all creatures besides you.

Jar of Hoarder Beetles wondrous, common

This wide glass jar weighs 2 pounds and has holes poked in it’s lid. It contains about a dozen beetles of blue and green hues, each the size of two thumbs, and their hoarde they sleep on. When you find the jar it has 2d10 silver pieces in it, 1d10 each of gold and copper pieces, and a selection of shiny rocks and bits lying at the bottom. The beetles will always find their way back to the jar at dusk as long as their hoarde is worth at least 2 gold and covers the bottom of the jar.

If released the beetles will fly off in search of shiny objects to add to their pile. When released at dawn within a town the beetles gather 1d10 silver, 1d4-1 each of gold and copper, and 1d4 shiney rocks and bits throughout the day. For every two hours after dawn they are released they have a -1 to their rolls to return with coins. At the DM’s discretion the coins gathered might decrease or degrade in quality in a poor town.
