Fossilizing Rod

Source Elemental Master's Handbook pg. 10
Aura moderate evocation and necromancy CL 11th
Slot none; Price 26,400 gp; Weight 4 lbs.


This forearm-length rod of onyx gemstone is capped by a sphere of amber. Once per day when the bearer of a fossilizing rod casts animate dead to animate skeletons, she can imbue the skeletons with fossilizing earth energy. Fossilized skeletons gain the earth subtype, reduce their Dexterity scores by 4 and their speeds by 10 feet, and cannot fly even if they could do so magically in life. However, due to the stone infusing their bones, fossilized skeletons gain hardness 8.
