The World Born Dead
Ring of Parting Prevented
This ring keeps the wearer safe from death effects once per
day for a limited period.
Description: This band is carved of bone. Inscribed on
the interior of the band in Infernal are the words “Flesh’s last
bulwark.” The exterior of the band is carved to resemble a
swarm of humanoid skeletons interlocked in a circle.
On the round the ring is activated, horrifying screams
peal forth, as if each of the dozen or so tiny skeletons on the
band have uttered their final death shriek.
Activation: If the ring is worn, it automatically activates
the first time in any given 24 hour period that the wearer
is subject to a death effect, energy drain, or any negative
energy effect. The ring activates quickly enough that the
wearer enjoys the ring’s effect (an immediate action that
counts against the wearer’s free actions for the round). The
ring activates only 1/day.
Effect: As the death ward spell, when a ring of parting
prevented is activated, the wearer enjoys 7 minutes of
immunity to all death effects, energy drain, and negative
energy effects (such as from inflict spells or chill touch).
The 7 minutes of immunity cannot be used in smaller
chunks—once the ring is activated, its protection runs
through to the effect’s duration.
Aura/Caster Level: Moderate necromancy. CL 7th.
