Band of Efficacious Death

Source Potions and Poisons pg. 28
Aura faint necromancy CL 3rd
Slot ring; Price 9,250 gp; Weight


This golden ring is set with a large, almost gaudy onyx that can open to reveal a hidden compartment with just enough room for a single dose of powdered poison. This ring provides a +2 competence bonus on Sleight of Hand checks to conceal this poison on the wearer’s body. In addition, the ring contains four charges that recharge each day. When drawing a poison from the band of efficacious death, the wearer can tap the onyx up to four times to increase the frequency of the poison by 1 increment per tap. For example, if the poison’s frequency were 1/round for 2 rounds, by touching the onyx once, the frequency would become 1/round for 3 rounds.


Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, pernicious poison; Cost 4,625 gp
