Barbed Pentacle of Asmodeus

Source Inner Sea Gods pg. 260, Gods and Magic pg. 54
Aura faint abjuration; CL 1st
Slot neck; Price 3,000 gp; Weight 1 lb.


This iron disk hangs from an iron chain, and is inscribed with an inverted pentagram and decorated around its outer edge with tiny metal barbs. When worn, it provides a +1 deflection bonus to AC.

If Asmodeus is the wearer’s patron, the pentacle counts as an unholy symbol. By holding it and speaking a command word, the wearer can use charm person once per day. If the wearer squeezes the pentacle so its barbs draw her blood (dealing 1 point of damage), the wearer can use that blood as ink, writing with a quill or even a finger for up to 1 hour. The blood-ink dries instantly on writing surfaces so it never smudges, and if it’s used as part of a magical spell the wearer casts that requires or is augmented by writing (such as magic circle against evil or sepia snake sigil), the DC of that spell increases by 1.


Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, bleed, charm person, shield of faith; Cost 1,500 gp
