ArTifact Tuesday

No promise this’ll happen every Tuesday, but I thought it’d be fun to showcase modern versions of artifacts that have shown up in campaigns of mine.
Corvin Queen’s Shadow

Aura strong necromancy; CL 20th

Slot shoulders; Weight —


This cloak of black feathers fades into the wearer’s shadow once donned, and cannot normally be removed again by anyone, including the wearer. The Corvin Queen’s Shadow protects the wearer from death. Entirely. No force can kill the wearer (though it offers no protection from unconsciousness, capture, petrification, polymorph, and so on).

As a side effect, the wearer is also protected from life, which means the whoever bears the shadow cannot gain experience points or levels, cannot retrain, and basically cannot appreciate the events she experiences.


If the Corvin Queen’s Shadow is donned by an undead, which is then destroyed, it turns into a Memitim psychopomp and flies away.
