Weapon of the Forgotten Pactweapon(any melee weapon), rare (requires attunement)

This weapon is tarnished and dingy, as if it has been exposed to the elements for far too long, but is not rusted. You can not find its sheath anywhere and its handle is bare metal with no wrapping.

You can activate this weapon as a bonus action. As you activate it you hear a cacophony of jumbled whispers and the weapon seems to almost guide itself towards its target, leaving a sickly blue trail behind it. While it is activated you have a +1 bonus to attack rolls made with this weapon.

After it has been activated for one minute you must make a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw. On a failure you take 1d12 Psychic damage as the voices crowd your mind and your vision flashes white. On a success you take half as much damage. For every minute the weapon is activated you gain an additional +1 to hit with this weapon. However, for every minute the weapon is active you must make another DC 14 Wisdom saving throw, and the damage you take increases by 1d12.

Each time you make a Wisdom saving throw against this weapon’s effect you may choose to try to break free from it. On a success you take no damage and the weapon is deactivated. On a failure you are unable to clear the voices from your head and you take damage as normal.

Curse. When you attune to this weapon you make a binding pact with an ancient one. If you die while attuned to this weapon or go unconscious while the weapon is activated your soul will be trapped within the weapon as one of the many voices, and just as all the other souls, you can not be released until a favor for the ancient one has been completed by another person. If you un-attune with this weapon before completing a favor for the ancient one you are certain you will suffer great misfortune.

Tapestry of the Great Hallwondrous, legendary (requires attunement by multiple creatures)

This large forest green tapestry has a symbol stretching across its length switched in gilded thread. Its accented with white and red and all along its hem is a complicated mantra of magical symbols and signs.

To attune to it a creature must be touching the tapestry for at least 1 minute of the hour attunement and for the rest of the duration must study and memorize the symbol depicted on it. This item can be attuned to by any number of creatures but the creatures must renew their attunement each year.

Even when attuned, a creature can not know the tapestry’s abilities unless they are told by another creature, if they successfully decode the mantra around its edges, or if they cast Identify on it. If Identify is cast on the tapestry the caster must make a DC 16 Wisdom saving throw. On a failure they forget all the abilities of the tapestry and are stunned for 1 hour as they become lost in its intricate threads. On a success they only discern a single ability and must cast Identify again to find any more. They learn these abilities in order as they are written.

If there are more than 6 creatures attuned to the tapestry the symbols emblazoned around its edge begin to slowly glow and its abilities are activated.

While attuned to the tapestry a creature can communicate with any other attuned creature even if they do not share a common language. Additionally, the cantrip Message can be used between attuned creatures regardless of distance as long as they are on the same plane as each other.

Recall Beacon

Any creature that is attuned to the tapestry can teleport to an empty space within 60 feet of it, as long as it is on the same plane of existence, by picturing the symbol on it in their mind and maintaining concentration as if concentrating on a spell for 1 minute. After a creature uses this feature they are unable to use it again for 1d4 days.

Ring of Detection

Any creature attuned to the tapestry can on focus on the symbol on the tapestry as if concentrating on a spell. While concentrating like this they can find the location of any creature that is attuned to the tapestry and within 10 miles by speaking their name. Additionally, they can sense if there are any creatures that are not attuned and within 1000 feet but do not know their location.

Emergency Recall

If a creature who is attuned to the tapestry spends 1 hour casting a ritual while focusing on the symbol on the tapestry they are able to forcefully recall all attuned creatures. All creatures not within sight of the tapestry and within the same plane are teleported to an empty space within sight of the tapestry. If there are no more empty spaces the creatures that did not fit are not teleported. This feature can even recall the bodies of creatures (or what is left of them) if the soul is willing to be recalled, attuned to the tapestry within the last year, and was still attuned to the tapestry at the time of death. Once used this feature cannot be used again for 1d4 months.

Banner of Couragewondrous, very rare

This large blue banner is decorated with a flaring yellow crest and mounted on the end of a 10 foot brass pole. As you hold it you can feel the same sense of self confidence that soldiers must when they know their standard is marching right behind them.

The banner has no effect unless it is held aloft by a creature. While holding this banner you can not make any attacks or cast any spells requiring somatic components. While held aloft the banner has an aura that affects all creatures within 250 feet that have either touched it in the last 24 hours, or are wearing a matching crest.

This magical item has 20 charges and regains 2d10 expended charges each day at dawn.

Symbol of Strength

Creatures affected by the banner are immune to being Frightened and any charm effect that would make them endanger another creature affected by the banner has no effect.

Bastion of Fortitude

Whenever a creature affected by this banner must make a saving throw that creature gains a bonus to the saving throw equal to half your charisma modifier rounded up (minimum of 1).

Surge of Hope

As an action you can wave the banner and expend any number of remaining charges to bolster that many creatures affected by the banner. Each bolstered creature gains temporary hit points equal to 3d6 + your Charisma modifier that last until the banner is no longer aloft. Additionally, they are immune to the effects Blinded, Deafened, and Poisoned, while the temporary hit points remain.

Living Wooden Bladeweapon(any sword), rare (requires attunement)

This sword is made from a well weathered wood, but its hilt and handle are yet covered with bark, and carefully molded. It flexes, but doesn’t splinter, and it’s edge is as sharp as steel. Any damage that has been done to the sword is repaired at dawn as long as the blade has been dipped in water within the last day and the handle is still intact.

As an action you can drive the blade into the ground if it is earth or sand. As you do so grasping vines and weeds sprout from the ground and a few leaves grow from the hilt of the sword. The sword casts Entangle on the ground around it in a 10 foot radius with a spell save DC of 15. This effect lasts until it is removed from the ground. Any creatures touching the hilt of this sword when it is driven into the ground are immune to this effect.

Archangel's Halowondrous, very rare (requires attunement by a creature of Good or Neutral Alignment)

This large silver ring is nearly 3 feet in diameter, several inches tall and delicately thin. Along its length is a groove, and at the front it is notched through to the groove where an extravagantly large diamond is set.

When you attune with this item the groove and diamond begin to glow a soft white, and it floats of its own accord to just a foot over your head, remaining there as closely as possible. While attuned to this halo you are resistant to Radiant damage and have advantage on Religion checks.

Heaven’s Wrath

While the halo floats above your head you can call on a sliver of the might contained in the armories of the Upper Planes. As an action you can raise your hand to the sky, pulling down 1d6 shining translucent swords. They fly to your side with a flourish, and will slowly orbit you, hilt upwards, for the next minute or until they shatter.

You can have up to 6 swords orbiting you, and while at least one sword orbits you you can make a melee spell attack against any creature you can see within 60 feet of you as an Attack action. If you are able to make multiple attacks with the Attack action, this attack replaces one of them.
On a hit you deal 1d8 + your Intelligence(Religion) modifier Radiant damage as the sword seems to pass right through the creature. On a miss the sword shatters.

If you are not a spellcaster you use your Intelligence modifier as your spellcasting modifier for this feature.

Angelic Properties

The halo will float above your head even in an antimagic field, despite the rest of its effects being nullified. Additionally, if you are ever separated from the halo you can summon it back to you as a bonus action unless it is blocked by an antimagic field or a ward against magical travel such as Forbiddance.

Curse. If you are ever more than 15 feet from the halo you take 1 psychic damage each minute and head inexplicably aches. If you are on a different plane from the halo you are also Blinded until you are once again on the same plane.

The only way to unattune from the halo apart from Wish or act of a deity is to commit a horribly evil act. If you unattune from the halo in this way the previously white light coming from it glows a dark red, and the silver dulls. The blackened halo falls to the ground, all magic properties lost and its diamond cracked. If you have proficiency with Religion you lose your proficiency in it and take 4d10 psychic damage as the knowledge is sloughed from your memory.

Reynier's Overwhelming Beamrod, rare

This short, dull metallic rod has a note tied around it with string. The note claims that it was crafted to contain the holy light of “the ancient god of some clerics I am pals with. They live on a mountain so you know it’s legit” and is signed with Reynier’s signature. It is partially hollow on one end and has a button on the other.

This rod contains 5 charges and regains 1d4+1 charges each dawn. When you press the button a 6 inch beam of light flashes from the hollow of the rod out to 30 feet before quickly flickering out. The first creature hit by this beam regains 2d8 hit points as they are bathed in the warm light. If there are hit points left over after the creature has reached maximum hit points or the creature is already at maximum hit points they must make a Constitution saving throw equal to 8 + the remaining hit points. On a failure they are Stunned for 1 turn and are Blinded for the next minute as their eyes and mind are overwhelmed with a burning sensation and pure light. At the end of each of its turns, it can make another Constitution saving throw. If it succeeds, the effect ends.

Aboleth's Tentaclewondrous, very rare

This tall brass rod is etched with an abstract circular design that seems to be devoid of any pattern and has a 4 foot section of a curled, shriveled, Aboleth tentacle affixed to its top. The tentacle is a dark sickly green, and it’s so tough you aren’t sure you could pierce it.

While you are attuned to this tentacle you can breathe underwater and have a +5 on any Intelligence (Religion) checks, and +5 on Intelligence (History) checks to recall things about religions or gods.

Bloody Awakening

Once per short rest as an action if you slice your hand or wrist and drip your own blood onto the tentacle as you hold the rod the tentacle rejuvenates, and expands down the rod engulfing your arm. For the next minute you can not use that arm as it is encased in a giant tentacle. However you may make melee attacks with proficiency with the tentacle. It has a reach of 10 feet and deals 2d6 bludgeoning damage on a hit.

After the minute is up the tentacle shrivels once again, receding back up the rod, and releasing your arm, now covered in slime. Until the next day your arm remains a pale green tint where the tentacle covered it and the cut you made to awaken the tentacle refuses to close, even in response to magical healing.

Aboleth’s Eye

While the tentacle is engulfing your arm you may use an action to focus your gaze and force all creatures in a 30 foot cone to make a Wisdom saving throw DC 14 or take 1d6 psychic damage.

Little Red Planar Hoodwondrous, very rare (requires attunement)

This looks like a simple red cloak but the size suggested it was made for a child. Inside the hood however is a magic circle sewn into the lining in vivid blue thread. The circle is divided into 8 segments, the last of which looks to be sewn with a different pattern. This cloak holds 8 charges, each represented by a segment within the hood of the cloak.

Each short rest the cloak regains up to 1 charge, and each long rest the cloak regains up to 7 charges.

Over The River

As a bonus action you can expend a charge to cast Misty Step, but instead of a silvery mist you are surrounded by a small flurry of autumn leaves and a babbling brook can be briefly heard.

Through The Woods

As an action if you are in wild unsettled territory, you can expend all 8 charges and choose a plane of existence (you may specify a target in general terms, such as the City of Brass on the Elemental Place of Fire or the palace of Dispater on the second level of the Nine Hells, and you appear in or near that destination at the DMs discretion). Alternatively, if you know the sigil sequence of a teleportation circle on another place of existence, you can choose that circle.

As you pick a location a small tree with red leaves and pale smooth bark shoots from the ground, rapidly encasing you before you disappear from sight within its foliage. The tree remains where you once were, forever growing in the plane you left.

Curse. This cloak is only able to regain the 8th charge by killing a creature to protect an innocent in danger and dripping the cloak with its blood. It can not recover the last charge by resting.

The turn after it has been activated the orb levitates until it is 20 feet in the air, or as high as the above terrain will allow, and begins spinning as it glows a soft orange. Each turn it will make a ranged spell attack against the nearest creature it can see within range. It has a +5 spell attack modifier, a range of 30 feet for every 5 feet it is above the ground, and on a hit it deals 2d6 fire damage. After 10 minutes, or firing 10 times, it stops glowing, falls to the ground, and can not be activated again until the next dawn.

Warhammer of Retributionweapon(warhammer), very rare (requires attunement by a creature with at least 12 Charisma)

This warhammer is more stockily built than most and the sides of its blocky head are covered in silver inlays. As you attune to it you feel a weight come upon you as if you have taken on a great responsibility.

Once per short rest as an action you can slam the hammer to the ground and it begins eminating a crushing aura. For the next minute or until you pick up the hammer, whichever comes first, all creatures within 60 feet of the hammer must make a Strength saving throw at the beginning of each turn equal to 8 + your proficiency + your Charisma modifier. You can choose a number of creatures up to your Charisma modifier to automatically succeed this saving throw. On a failure every foot of movement costs 1 extra foot until the beginning of their next turn and if the creature is an Aberration, Fiend, or Undead they also fall Prone. If a creature that is already Prone fails this saving throw they become Restrained until they are no longer in the aura.

Curse. While attuned to this item you constantly feel a heavy burden on your mind and shoulders, and your movement speed is reduced by 5 feet. If you remove this curse you hear whispered in your mind “those who are not willing to bear the burden are not worthy to wield me”, the attunement immediately breaks, and you can never attune to the hammer again.

Elytriss' Staff of Static Barriersstaff, rare (requires attunement)

This singed oaken staff has a forked tongue of metal on each end and a hand grip made of padded leather. This staff holds 5 charges and regains 1d4 expended charges each dawn.

As an action you can activate the staff, and sparks can be seen flickering between the forks. As you activate the staff a panel of electricity crackles into existence at a point within 60 feet of your choosing. The writhing section of living lightning appears in any orientation you choose. It can be free floating or resting on a solid surface. It is 5-foot by 5-foot and seems to have almost no thickness. When you activate the staff you can choose to expend a number of charges. The first charge you expend changes the original panel of lightning to a 10-foot square panel, and each additional charge creates an additional 10-foot panel. You can place these panels as you wish but each panel must be contiguous with another panel.

If any creature attempts to move through or make a melee attack through any of these panels, or if any of these panels cuts through a creature’s space when it appears, the creature must make a Strength saving throw or be pushed 15 feet away from the panel and take 1d6 Lightning and 2d6 Force damage. On a successful saving throw they are not pushed and only take 1d6 Lightning damage. If you are not a caster you use your Constitution modifier as your casting ability for these saving throws.

This delicate pink flower is carefully preserved with magic and will not wilt or break yet preserves its natural beauty.

While you are visibly wearing this flower you are blessed by Eldath, the goddess of peace and protection. This flower holds up to 10 charges and regains 1 charge each long rest. As an action once per long rest you can call on the blessing of Eldath to cast the spell Sanctuary on all creatures within 30 feet of you, including yourself. This blessing does not affect any creatures in combat or with their weapons drawn, but lasts until they make an attack or cast a spell that affects an enemy creature or until their next long rest.

Additionally, you may activate the Blossom by making a prayer to Eldath. When activated the center of the blossom glows with a faint yellow and pink. For the next hour you may cast any of the following spells as an action and ignoring component costs, expending a number of charges depending on the spell cast. While activated you can also cast Speak with Plants as a ritual that has a casting time of 1 minute without expending any charges. Your casting ability while using this item is 15 unless your class casting ability is higher.

This amulet is a single large turquoise set in silver. It doesn’t have a chain but it has a hole where it would usually hang from one.

While you are attuned to this amulet the area within 5 feet of the stone is always clearly visible to you unless you are blinded. When in any effect that is more than lightly obscuring a pale blue-green light, that is visible only to you, radiates out to 5 feet from the amulet. This light does not destroy magical darkness but you are able to clearly see within its radius no matter what.

Additionally, Whenever any Invisible creature is within 120 feet the amulet faintly pulsates. If the Invisible creature is within 5 feet of the amulet they are bathed in the pale blue-green light. When a creature is in this light they do not gain any of the benefits of Invisibility against you.

Cloud Giant's Hammerweapon(warhammer), rare

This warhammer is quite obviously made for a giant, although you have a suspicion they would call this a light hammer. The head of it is over 2 feet long and of substantial thickness. When stood on its head the iron knob at the end of its blue handle comes up to the shoulders of an average human. Judging by the crude markings and runes that could represent wind and sky chiseled into its face you can assume it’s the hammer of either a storm or cloud giant.

For its massive size it swings through the air with surprising ease, likely some form of magic to make it a more effective throwing hammer for someone of the intended size. It feels as if it weighs about 24 pounds although without the magic it probably weighs far more.

This hammer has the properties Heavy, Reach, and Two-handed. All creatures of size Large or Medium have disadvantage on their attack rolls with this hammer, and Small or smaller creatures can’t attack with it at all. On a hit this hammer does 3d8 bludgeoning damage, and on a critical hit it you can roll the damage dice three times instead of twice.

Hidden Property. If the magic on the hammer is dispelled or it enters the area of an anti-magic field the hammer instantly becomes 160 pounds and completely un-wieldable by a creature smaller than Huge until the magic is restored or it is removed from the anti-magic field.

Needle of Bloody Displacementwondrous, very rare (requires attunement)

This amulet has a compass rose etched into its golden surface. It is stained and tarnished, and at the southern point of the compass rose a spike the length of a finger extends straight down.

As a bonus action you can plunge the spike into yourself. You take 1d4 Piercing damage, and gain charges equal to the damage taken, as the blood flows against gravity into the compass rose and seeps into the etching. The amulet can hold up to 12 charges and loses all stored charges at dawn.

As an action you can expend a number of charges to teleport creatures you can see within 30 feet to another unoccupied space you can see within 30 feet. For each creature teleported you must expend 1 charge for every 10 feet you move them. If the creature is unwilling they must make a Constitution saving throw with a DC equal to 10 + the total charges expended this turn or be teleported against their will.

Curse. If you are magically healed you lose all stored charges in this item. Additionally, every time you use this item to teleport 1 or more creatures it creates a sigil on your skin around the most recent wound from the needle. This sigil has a number of spines radiating from it equal to the number of creatures teleported or 0 spines if you teleported yourself.

When you stab yourself with the needle you take 1 additional Necrotic damage for each sigil on your body. This damage can not be resisted.

Each day at dawn 1d4-1 random sigils disappear if you did not use this item the previous day.

Call of the Voidwondrous, rare (requires attunement)

This black chunk of obsidian is a rough spherical shape with no sharp edges. As you look into its murky center you can see an almost infinitely receding sea of gold, white, and blue flecks of color. When you hold it you can swear you can hear how silent it is.

This item has 3 charges. While holding it, you can use an action to expend a number of its charges to create a sphere of swirling emptiness at a point within 120 feet of you. The radius of the sphere is equal to the number charges expended x 10. Space itself begins to warp within the area and each creature within the sphere must make a DC 14 Strength saving throw; a creature can choose to fail this saving throw if it wishes. On a failed save they are pulled to an unoccupied space nearest to the center of the vortex. On a successful save they take 2d8 force damage and are not moved.

This item regains all of its expended charges after a long or short rest.

Curse. The first time this item is used after a long or short rest the user takes 1d8 Necrotic damage for each charge they expended as a tiny piece of their life force is pulled into Limbo. This damage can not be resisted and if a creature goes unconscious from taking this damage a gate appears beneath them and they are sucked through it to Limbo. This gate is one-way only and can’t be reopened.

Deck of Many Holeswondrous, very rare

This deck of playing cards has a charred purple color almost as if it was put through a dying process. The stranger part of them though is that they all have 1 or more holes punched straight through them.
After studying the cards for a long or short rest you figure out that the holes correspond to how strong the magic of the card is. Each numbered card has a number of holes punched in it equal to half its value rounded down. Face cards all have 5 holes, but aces are different. They only have a single hole, and its much larger than any of the other cards’ holes.

Using Cards

As an action you may draw a card and choose to either activate it or return it to the bottom of the deck. If you activate it you may create a number of 10 foot wide 10 foot deep extradimensional holes, within 60 feet of you, equal to to the number of holes on the card. If you so choose you can make any pit you have already created 10 feet deeper instead of creating a new pit.

Using Aces

The exception to the rules are the aces. When you activate an ace you may only create a single hole, but the hole is 20 feet wide and 2d4 x 10 feet deep. These holes can only be made deeper with another ace card.

Properties of the holes

The space within these holes exist on separate demi-planes so they do not affect structural integrity or create open passages.
Each minute after a pit is created it gets 10 feet shorter until it doesn’t exist at all or until you activate the card again. If you activate the card again the extradimensional space collapses and everything within the hole is rapidly expelled through the hole(s) in the card. Creatures that are expelled in this way take 2d10 bludgeoning damage.
Once a card is used to create a hole any holes punched in it disappear and it becomes a mundane, albeit still purple, playing card.
