Crafting & Treasure

Treasure comes in all sorts of forms, from humble copper coins to incredibly powerful and valuable magic items.

The GM controls the flow of items in the game as the PCs win them through adventures, find them for purchase, or acquire the formulas to make the items themselves.

Items can support characters by granting bonuses to their statistics, allowing them to cast more spells, and creating all sorts of effects that can’t be achieved in any other way.

Magic items come in many varieties, from enchanted swords that can harm even incorporeal undead to containers that can store a king’s ransom within a tiny space; many are permanent items that can be used repeatedly. Alchemical items, by contrast, are not intrinsically magical and are often consumed when used. Both have a variety of uses, from curing the sick to Lighting foes on fire. Some treasures are neither magical nor alchemical, but are instead crafted from Precious materials or using specialized expertise.

This section provides rules for using different kinds of items encountered in the game. Rules for distributing treasure and creating treasure hoards can be found in Game Mastering.

Using Items, beginning below, describes how to activate items and explains the statistics for items.

Table 11–1: Treasure by Level lists the options for treasures, arranged by level, category, and Price.

The catalog of items presents descriptions and rules for all sorts of different treasures that can appear in the game, sorted by category. This also includes a section on Precious materials found in the game world, which can give items unusual properties.

Using Items

This section presents the rules for how characters use alchemical items, magic items, and other special items during play.

The myriad types of items give their powerful boons in different ways. Some function automatically, while others need to be activated. While you need only swing a flaming greataxe to scorch foes, you need to invest a diadem of intellect for it to work, imbibe an elixir of life to heal yourself, activate slippers of spider climbing to walk up a wall, activate your mail of luck to protect yourself, and Cast a Spell using a magical scroll.

Characters acquire treasure from the glittering hoards of their foes, as rewards for defending the innocent, and as favors from the grand personalities they treat with. As they progress through their adventures and improve their station in the world, characters collect ever more fabulous items from enchanted armor and weapons to spell-infused staves.

Constant Abilities

Some magic items have abilities that always function.

You don’t have to use any actions to do anything special (beyond wearing and investing a worn item or wielding a held item) to make these abilities work. For example, an everburning torch always sheds light, and a flaming weapon deals fire damage every time it deals damage.

Investing Magic Items

Certain magic items convey their magical benefits only when worn and invested using the Invest an Item activity, tying them to your inner potential. These items have the invested trait. Many invested items have constant abilities that function all the time or that always trigger when you use the item—but only when they’re invested. If you don’t have an item invested, these abilities don’t work. If an invested item can be activated, you must have invested the item to activate it.

You can benefit from no more than 10 invested magic items each day. Because this limit is fairly high, and because it matters only for worn items, you probably won’t need to worry about reaching the limit until higher levels, when you’ve acquired many useful magic items to wear.

You can still gain the mundane benefits of an item if you don’t invest it. A suit of +1 Resilient armor still gives you its item bonus to AC when not invested, but it doesn’t give its magical bonus to saving throws, and winged boots still protect your feet even though you can’t activate them to fly. Entirely non-magical items don’t need to be invested.

Invest an Item

You invest your energy in an item with the invested trait as you don it. This process requires 1 or more Interact actions, usually taking the same amount of time it takes to don the item.

Once you’ve Invested the Item, you benefit from its constant magical abilities as long as you meet its other requirements (for most invested items, the only other requirement is that you must be wearing the item). This investiture lasts until you remove the item.

You can invest no more than 10 items per day. If you remove an invested item, it loses its investiture. The item still counts against your daily limit after it loses its investiture. You reset the limit during your daily preparations, at which point you Invest your Items anew. If you’re still wearing items you had invested the previous day, you can typically keep them invested on the new day, but they still count against your limit.

Activating Items

Some items produce their effects only when used properly in the moment. Others always offer the same benefits as their mundane counterparts when worn, but have magical abilities you can gain by further spending actions. Either case requires you to use the Activate an Item activity.

Activating an Item works much like Casting a Spell, in that the activity takes a variable number of actions and can have different components depending on how you Activate the Item. This information appears in the item’s Activate entry.

If an item is used up when activated, as is the case for consumable items, its Activate entry appears toward the top of the stat block. For permanent items with activated abilities, the Activate entry is a paragraph in the description.

Activations are not necessarily magical—for instance, drinking an alchemical elixir isn’t usually a magical effect.

Activate an Item

Requirement(s) You can Activate an Item with the invested trait only if it’s invested by you. If the item requires you to Interact with it, you must be wielding it (if it’s a held item) or touching it with a free hand (if it’s another type of item).

You call forth the effect of an item by properly activating it. This is a special activity that takes a variable number of actions, as listed in the item’s stat block.

Some items can be activated as a reaction or free action. In this case, you Activate the Item as a reaction or free action (as appropriate) instead of as an activity. Such cases are noted in the item’s Activate entry in its stat block—for example, “Activate command.”

Long Activation Times Some items take minutes or hours to activate. The Activate an Item activity for these items includes a mix of the listed activation components, but it’s not necessary to break down which one you’re providing at a given time. You can’t use other actions or reactions while activating such an item, though at the GM’s discretion, you might be able to speak a few sentences. As with other activities that take a long time, these activations have the exploration trait, and you can’t activate them in an encounter. If combat breaks out while you’re activating one, your activation is disrupted (see the Disrupting Activations sidebar).

Activation Components Each activation entry lists any components involved in the activation after the action icons or text, such as “ command.” The activation components, described below, add traits (listed in parentheses) and requirements to the activation. If you can’t provide the components, you fail to Activate the Item.

  • Command (auditory, concentrate)
  • Envision (concentrate)
  • Interact (manipulate)
  • Cast a Spell

Activation Components

An item’s activate entry lists the components required to activate its abilities. Each component adds certain traits to the Activate an Item activity, and some components have special requirements. The components that appear in this book are listed below.

Command

This component is a specific utterance you must make in a loud and strong voice. Activate an Item gains the auditory and concentrate traits. You must be able to speak to provide this component.

Envision

This component is a specific image or phenomenon you need to imagine. Activate an Item gains the concentrate trait.

Interact

This component works like the Interact basic action.

Activate an Item gains the manipulate trait and requires you to use your hands, just like with any Interact action.

Cast a Spell

If an item lists “Cast a Spell” after “Activate,” the activation requires you to use the Cast a Spell activity to Activate the Item. This happens when the item replicates a spell. You must have a spellcasting class feature to Activate an Item with this activation component.

If the item can be used for a specific spell, the action icon for that spell is provided. If it’s an item like a staff, which can be used for many spells, the icon is omitted, and you must refer to each spell to determine which actions you must spend to Activate the Item to cast it.

In this case, Activate an Item gains all the traits from the relevant components of the Cast a Spell activity.

Limited Activations

Some items can be activated only a limited number of times per day, as described in the items. This limit is independent of any costs for activating the item. The limit resets during your daily preparations. The limit is inherent to the item, so if an ability that can be used only once per day is used, it doesn’t refresh if another creature later invests or tries to activate the item.

Sustaining Activations

Some items, once activated, have effects that can be sustained if you concentrate on them. This works much like the Sustain a Spell action. If an item’s description states that you can sustain the effect, that effect lasts until the end of your turn in the round after you Activated the Item. You can use a Sustain an Activation action on that turn to extend the duration.

Sustain an Activation

Concentrate

Requirements You have at least one magic item activation that you can sustain, and you are not fatigued.

Choose one magic item activation with a sustained duration you have in effect. The duration of that activation continues until the end of your next turn. Some activations may have slightly different or expanded effects if you sustain them.

Sustaining an Activation for more than 10 minutes (100 rounds) ends the activation and makes you fatigued unless the item’s description states a different maximum duration (such as “up to 1 minute” or “up to 1 hour”).

If your Sustain an Activation action is disrupted, the item’s effect immediately ends.

Dismissing Activations

Some item effects can be dismissed, ending the duration early due to you or the target taking action. Dismissing an activation requires using the Dismiss action.

Dismiss

Concentrate

You end one spell effect or magic item effect. This must be an effect that you are allowed to dismiss, as defined by the spell or item. Dismissal might end the effect entirely, or might end it just for a certain target or targets, depending on the spell or item.

Reading Items

Hundreds of items lie ahead. Each item is presented in a stat block, much like spells or feats. The example below shows the structure of an item stat block and gives a brief description of each entry. Entries appear only when applicable, so not all items will have every entry described here. Detailed rules governing aspects of the stat block specific to items appear after the stat block.

Item Name Item

Trait 1 Trait 2...

Price This entry lists the item’s Price. An item that has multiple types includes Price for each type in its entry.

Ammunition Magic ammunition lists the types of ammunition available for that kind of item.

Usage This entry describes whether the item is held, worn, or affixed to or etched onto another item; Bulk The item’s Bulk is listed here. Runes don’t have a Bulk entry.

Activate The number of actions needed to Activate the Item appear here, followed by the components in parentheses. This entry appears here for consumables and lower in the stat block for permanent items that can be activated. This section might also have Frequency, Trigger, or Requirements entries as necessary.

Onset This entry appears if the item’s effect is delayed, which most often occurs with alchemical poisons. The onset is the amount of time that elapses between when a character Activates an Item and any effect occurs.

The section after the line describes the item and its constant abilities. If the item can be activated and doesn’t have an Activate entry above, that entry appears here in a paragraph beginning with “Activate.”

Type If multiple types of the item exist, entries here indicate the name of each type, its level, its Price, and any other relevant details or alterations from the above description.

Craft Requirements An item that has special requirements to be Crafted details those requirements here.

Level

An item’s level indicates what level of adventurer the item is best suited for. There’s no limit to the items a character can use, though. A 3rd-level character who finds an item of 4th level or higher while adventuring can use it normally. Likewise, they can purchase the item if they can find it for sale and can afford it.

When making items, a character’s level must be equal to or higher than the item’s level in order to Craft it. In addition to anything listed in the Craft Requirements entry in the item’s stat block, the crafter must have the appropriate skill proficiencies and feats, as well as the item’s formula; see the Craft activity for more information about these requirements.

Multiple Types

If multiple types of an item exist, the title line gives the minimum level followed by a plus symbol (“+”). The description includes information on the base version of the item, and the Type entries at the bottom of the stat block lists the specifics for each version, including the level, Price, and any modified or added abilities of the different types.

For some items, the types listed are upgrades to the base item. For other items, such as aeon stones and wondrous figurines, each type is distinct from the others.

Price

If an item is available for purchase, a character can typically buy it for the listed Price, and the character uses this Price when they use the Craft activity to make the item. If a character wants to sell an item, they can sell it for half its Price (or full Price, if the item was made on commission), assuming they’re able to find a buyer. The GM determines whether a buyer is available.

Usage

An item’s stat block includes a Usage entry that indicates whether a character must be holding or wearing the item in order to use it, or whether she instead must have it etched or affixed onto another item.

Held or Worn

If a character must wield the item to use it, this entry in the item’s stat block lists the word “held” along with the number of hands the character must use when wielding the item, such as “held in 1 hand.”

An item that needs to be worn to function lists “worn” as its usage. This is followed by another word if the character is limited to only one of that type of item. For instance, a character can wear any number of rings, so the entry for a ring would list only “worn.” However, if the Usage entry were “worn cloak,” then a character couldn’t wear another cloak on top of that one. It’s assumed that items are meant to be worn by humanoids; any item that can or must be worn by a different type of creature either states this in its description or has the companion trait. Most magic items a character must wear have the invested trait.

Affixed or Etched

Some items enhance other items. Talismans function only if affixed to other items. They have a Usage entry indicating the type or types of items to which a character can attach them, such as “affixed to armor.”

Runes must be etched onto permanent items, such as armor, weapons, or Runestones to grant their benefit. Adding or transferring a Rune takes downtime to accomplish. The Usage entry indicates the type or types of items a Rune can be etched into, such as “etched onto a weapon.”

Craft Requirements

An item might require the crafter to provide specific raw materials, supply spells, have a certain alignment, or meet other special requirements to Craft it. These appear in the Craft Requirements entry of the stat block. Every item also has default requirements. The crafter must provide half the item’s Price in raw materials (as explained in the Craft activity). In addition, creating alchemical items requires the Alchemical Crafting feat, creating magic items requires the Magical Crafting feat, and crafting snares requires the Snare Crafting feat. Finally, crafting higher-level items requires greater proficiency in Crafting.

Unless stated otherwise, creating items of 9th level and higher requires you to have the master proficiency rank in Crafting, and items of 16th level and higher require legendary Crafting.

Treasure Table

Table 11–1 lists the items and Runes appearing in this section. The table includes all the options of a given item level, organized by category and name. Each level has a section for consumables, followed by a section for permanent items. A superscript “U” indicates the item is uncommon, and a superscript “R” indicates it’s rare.

Alchemical Items

Alchemical items are not magical. They instead use the properties of volatile chemicals, exotic minerals, potent plants, and other substances, collectively referred to as alchemical reagents. As such, alchemical items don’t radiate magical auras, and they can’t be dismissed or affected by dispel magic. Their effects last for a set amount of time or until they are countered in some way, typically physically.

Sometimes the reactions of alchemical reagents create effects that seem magical, and at other times they straddle the line between purely reactive and the inexplicable.

Alchemists can infuse reagents with some of their own essence, allowing them to efficiently create short-lived alchemical items at no monetary cost. Even in these cases, alchemical items don’t radiate magic auras, instead using the alchemist’s infused essence as one additional catalyst for the item’s alchemical effects.

Rules for creating alchemical items are found in the Craft activity, and you must have the Alchemical Crafting skill feat to use Crafting to create alchemical items. Critically failing a Crafting check to make alchemical items often causes a dangerous effect, such as an explosion for a bomb or accidental exposure for a poison, in addition to losing some of the materials.

Some alchemical items have additional requirements beyond those stated in the Craft activity; these items list their requirements in a Craft Requirements entry.

All alchemical items have the alchemical trait. Most also have the consumable trait, which means that the item is used up once activated. The bomb, elixir, and poison traits indicate special categories of alchemical items. Alchemical items without any of these traits are called alchemical tools.

This section contains the following subcategories.

Table 11–2 lists alchemical items arranged by level and category, as a reference primarily for alchemist characters.

Alchemical Bombs

An alchemical bomb combines volatile alchemical components that explode when the bomb hits a creature or object. Most alchemical bombs deal damage, though some produce other effects. Bombs have the bomb trait.

Bombs are martial thrown weapons with a range increment of 20 feet. When you throw a bomb, you make a weapon attack roll against the target’s AC, as you would for any other weapon. It takes one hand to draw, prepare, and throw a bomb. Due to the complexity involved in preparing bombs, Strikes to throw alchemical bombs gain the manipulate trait. The bomb is activated when thrown as a Strike—you don’t have to activate it separately.

Splash Trait

Most bombs also have the splash trait. When you use a thrown weapon with the splash trait, you don’t add your Strength modifier to the damage roll. If an attack with a splash weapon fails, succeeds, or critically succeeds, all creatures within 5 feet of the target (including the target) take the listed splash damage. On a failure (but not a critical failure), the target of the attack still takes the splash damage.

Add splash damage together with the initial damage against the target before applying the target’s resistance or weakness.

You don’t multiply splash damage on a critical hit.

For example, if you threw a lesser acid flask and hit your target, that creature would take 1d6 persistent acid damage and 1 acid splash damage. All other creatures within 5 feet of it would take 1 acid splash damage. On a critical hit, the target would take 2d6 persistent acid damage, but the splash damage would still be 1. If you missed, the target would take 1 splash damage. If you critically failed, no one would take any damage.

Alchemical Elixirs

Elixirs are alchemical liquids that are used by drinking them. They have the elixir trait. These potent concoctions grant the drinker some alchemical benefits. While all elixirs follow the same general rules, mutagens (described below) have additional rules that apply to their use.

Activating Elixirs

You usually Interact to activate an elixir as you drink it or feed it to another creature. You can feed an elixir only to a creature within reach that is either willing or unable to prevent you from doing so. You usually need only one hand to consume an elixir or feed it to another creature.

Mutagens

These elixirs, indicated by the mutagen trait, temporarily transmogrify the subject’s body and alter its mind. Typically, only alchemists have the expertise to craft mutagens, and some say they are the only ones reckless enough to use them.

A mutagen always conveys one or more beneficial effects (listed in the Benefit entry) paired with one or more detrimental effects (shown in the Drawback entry).

Mutagens are polymorph effects, meaning you can benefit from only one at a time (see the polymorph trait).

Alchemical Poisons

Alchemical poisons are potent toxins distilled or extracted from natural sources and made either stronger or easier to administer. Each poison’s stat block includes the Price and features for a single dose. Poison doses are typically kept in a vial or some other type of safe and secure container.

Applying alchemical poisons uses Interact actions. A poison typically requires one hand to pour into food or scatter in the air. Applying a poison to a weapon or another item requires two hands, with one hand holding the weapon or item. The Usage entry for a poison indicates the number of hands needed for a typical means of application, but the GM might determine that using poisons in other ways functions differently.

A creature attempts the listed saving throw as soon as it’s exposed to the poison; on a failed save, the creature advances to stage 1 of the poison after any listed onset time elapses.

Some poisons have the virulent trait. This means the poison is harder to remove once it has taken effect; (see Virulent Afflictions.)

Method of Exposure

Each alchemical poison has one of the following traits, which define how a creature can be exposed to that poison.

Contact: A contact poison is activated by applying it to an item or directly onto a living creature’s skin. The first creature to touch the affected item must attempt a saving throw against the poison; if the poison is applied directly, the creature must attempt a saving throw immediately when the poison touches its skin. Contact poisons are infeasible to apply to a creature via a weapon attack due to the logistics of delivering them without poisoning yourself.

Typically, the onset time of a contact poison is 1 minute.

Ingested: An ingested poison is activated by applying it to food or drink to be consumed by a living creature, or by placing it directly into a living creature’s mouth. A creature attempts a saving throw against such a poison when it consumes the poison or the food or drink treated with the poison. The onset time of ingested poisons typically ranges anywhere from 1 minute to 1 day.

Inhaled: An inhaled poison is activated by unleashing it from its container. Once unleashed, the poison creates a cloud filling a 10-foot cube lasting for 1 minute or until a strong wind dissipates the cloud. Every creature entering this cloud is exposed to the poison and must attempt a saving throw against it; a creature aware of the poison before entering the cloud can use a single action to hold its breath and gain a +2 circumstance bonus to the saving throw for 1 round.

Injury: An injury poison is activated by applying it to a weapon, and it affects the target of the first Strike made using the poisoned weapon. If that Strike is a success and deals piercing or slashing damage, the target must attempt a saving throw against the poison. On a failed Strike, the target is unaffected, but the poison remains on the weapon and you can try again. On a critical failure, or if the Strike fails to deal slashing or piercing damage for some other reason, the poison is spent but the target is unaffected.

Philosopher’s Stone Item 20

Uncommon Alchemical Consumable

Price

Usage held in 2 hands; Bulk 2

Activate Interact or 1 or more days; see below

An alchemist with the Craft Philosopher’s Stone feat can create a philosopher’s stone once per month by spending 1 batch of infused reagents during their daily preparations using the advanced alchemy class feature. This is the only way to create a philosopher’s stone.

At a glance, a philosopher’s stone appears to be an ordinary, sooty piece of natural rock. Breaking the rock open with a Force Open action (DC 35) reveals a cavity at the stone’s heart. The cavity is lined with a rare type of quicksilver that can transmute base metals into Precious metals or create an elixir of rejuvenation.

To use the quicksilver, you must be legendary in Crafting and have the Alchemical Crafting feat. You can then use the stone’s quicksilver for one of two effects:

  • You can apply the stone’s quicksilver to an infused true elixir of life using an Interact action. This turns the elixir into an infused elixir of rejuvenation instantaneously. This doesn’t require any crafting time or additional materials.
  • You can spend up to a month of downtime applying the quicksilver either to iron to create silver or to lead to create gold. Treat this as a 20th-level task to Earn Income using Crafting, except that you create 500 gp worth of your chosen metal per day on a success or 750 gp worth per day on a critical success.

Silversheen Item 2

Alchemical Consumable

Price 6 gp; Usage held in 2 hands; Bulk L

Activate Interact

You can slather this silvery paste onto one melee weapon, one thrown weapon, or 10 pieces of ammunition.

Alchemical Consumable

Price 2 gp; Usage held in 2 hands; Bulk L

For the next hour, the symptom disappears and the wounded or afflicted creature doesn’t feel as if it still has the wound or affliction, though all effects remain. A creature can uncover the ruse by succeeding at a DC 17 Perception check, but only if it uses a Seek action to specifically examine the snake oil’s effects.

Sunrod Item 1

Price 3 gp; Usage held in 1 hand; Bulk L

Alchemical Consumable Fire

Price 2 sp

Usage held in 1 hand; Bulk

Activate Interact

An alchemical substance applied to one end of this tiny wooden stick ignites when struck against a rough surface.

Armor

Suits of armor can be crafted from Precious materials or infused with magic to grant them abilities exceeding those of typical armor. Many suits of magic armor are created by etching Runes onto them.

The magic armor stat block lists the Price and attributes of the most common armors you can make with fundamental Runes. Other special suits of armor might be made of Precious materials, and some are specially crafted items all on their own.

Precious Material

Armor Suits of armor made of Precious materials are more expensive and sometimes grant special effects.

You can make leather armor out of dragonhide, wooden armor out of darkwood, and metal armor out of any Precious materials except for darkwood. Because armor’s Bulk is reduced when the armor is worn, use its carried Bulk when determining its material Price.

Basic Magic Armor

The most common special armors are suits of armor with some combination of armor Potency and Resilient Runes.

The following stat block provides a quick reference for these types of armor.

Magic Armor Item 5+

Abjuration Invested Magical

Usage worn armor; Bulk varies by armor

A suit of magic armor is simply a suit of armor or explorer’s clothing etched with fundamental Runes. An armor Potency Rune increases the armor’s item bonus to AC, and a Resilient Rune adds an item bonus to saving throws.

The Prices here are for all types of armor.

You don’t need to adjust the Price from leather armor to full plate or the like. These armors are made of standard materials, not Precious materials such as mithral.

Type +1 armor; Level 5; Price 160 gp

This armor has a +1 armor Potency Rune (increase the item bonus to AC by 1).

Type +1 Resilient armor; Level 8; Price 500 gp

This armor has a +1 armor Potency Rune (increase the item bonus to AC by 1) and a Resilient Rune (+1 item bonus to saves).

Type +2 Resilient armor; Level 11; Price 1,400 gp

This armor has a +2 armor Potency Rune (increase the item bonus to AC by 2) and a Resilient Rune (+1 item bonus to saves).

Type +2 greater Resilient armor; Level 14; Price 4,500 gp

This armor has a +2 armor Potency Rune (increase the item bonus to AC by 2) and a greater Resilient Rune (+2 item bonus to saves).

Type +3 greater Resilient armor; Level 18; Price 24,000 gp

Type +3 major Resilient armor; Level 20; Price 70,000 gp

This armor has a +3 armor Potency Rune (increase the item bonus to AC by 3) and a major Resilient Rune (+3 item bonus to saves).

Armor Alternatives

If you don’t want to wear armor, or you’re trained in only unarmored defense, you can wear either explorer’s clothing or bracers of armor. Explorer’s clothing can be etched with Runes just like armor can, so it can provide item bonuses to AC or saves.

Bracers of armor give a +1 item bonus to AC with no Dex modifier cap, and also grant a bonus to saves.

Specific Magic Armor

These suits of armor have abilities far different from what can be gained by etching Runes. A specific magic armor lists its fundamental Runes, which you can upgrade, add, or transfer as normal. You can’t etch any property Runes onto a specific armor that it doesn’t already have.

Breastplate of Command Item 10+

Enchantment Invested Magical

Usage worn armor; Bulk 2

Celestial Armor Item 13

Divine Good Invested Transmutation

Price 2,500 gp; Usage worn armor; Bulk 1

This suit of +2 Resilient chain mail is made of fine white links of a strange and slightly translucent pale metal, and the sleeves and skirt are fashioned into smaller trails that resemble feathers. Unlike normal chain mail, celestial armor has no Speed reduction, its armor check penalty is 0, and its Bulk is 1.

You gain a +1 circumstance bonus to AC and saving throws against fiends. You appear radiant while you wear the armor, giving you a +2 item bonus to Diplomacy checks against all creatures except fiends.

They deal 2d8 piercing damage and have the deadly d12 trait. On a critical hit with the horns, the target must attempt a DC 30 Fortitude save against the Abyssal plague disease. The horns can’t be etched with any Runes.

If you aren’t evil, you’re drained 2 and can’t recover from this condition while wearing demon armor.

Activate command; Frequency once per day; Effect You cast dimension door.

The breath weapon deals 14d6 damage; each creature in the area must attempt a DC 36 basic saving throw.

Protects Dragon Type Against Breath Weapon (Save) Black or copper acid 30-foot line of acid (Reflex) Blue or bronze electricity 30-foot line of electricity (Reflex) Brass fire 30-foot line of fire (Reflex) Green poison 15-foot cone of poison (Fortitude) Gold or red fire 15-foot cone of fire (Reflex) Silver or white cold 15-foot cone of cold (Reflex)

Activate envision; Frequency once per day; Trigger You are hit or critically hit with an attack, but damage hasn’t been rolled yet; Effect You force the attacker to reroll the attack roll and use the worse result. This effect has the misfortune trait.

Activating the armor causes the gemstone to turn gray and become inert. You cannot activate the armor again until the stone returns to its original green color. The gem turns green again after 1 week or when a significant foe critically succeeds at an attack roll targeting you. (If an enemy rolls a critical success at an attack against you and you force the attacker to reroll that critical success, that critical success does not recharge the mail of luck.) Even if the armor’s power returns before a week has elapsed, it can’t be activated more than once per day.

Consumables

This section includes magic items with the consumable trait. An item with this trait can be used only once. Unless stated otherwise, it is destroyed after activation. When a character creates consumable items, they can make them in batches of four, as described in the Craft activity.

Consumables includes the following subcategories, with any special rules appearing at the start of the section.

  • Ammunition
  • Oils
  • Potions
  • Scrolls
  • Talismans
  • Other Consumables

Ammunition

These magic items are ammunition for ranged weapons.

Each item’s stat block includes an Ammunition entry that lists which type of ammunition it can be Crafted as, or “any” if it’s not limited to any particular type. All stat blocks for ammunition omit the Usage and Bulk entries; use the standard rules in Equipment for the type of ammunition to determine reloading times and Bulk.

When using magic ammunition, use your ranged weapon’s fundamental Runes to determine the attack modifier and damage dice. Don’t add the effects of your weapon’s property Runes unless the ammunition states otherwise—the ammunition creates its own effects. Magic ammunition deals damage on a hit normally in addition to any listed effects unless its description states otherwise.

Regardless of whether an attack with magic ammunition hits or misses, launching the ammunition consumes its magic. Magic ammunition is made of normal materials, not Precious materials, unless stated otherwise.

Activated Ammunition

If magic ammunition doesn’t have an Activate entry, it’s activated automatically when it’s launched. Types of magic ammunition that have an Activate entry must be activated with additional actions before being used. Once you activate the ammunition, you must shoot it before the end of your turn. Otherwise, it deactivates (but it isn’t consumed) and you must activate it again before you can use it. If you shoot the ammunition without activating it first, it functions as non-magical ammunition and is still consumed.

The action required to activate the ammunition doesn’t alter how many actions it takes to reload. For example, you could activate a beacon shot arrow by touching it with 1 action, then draw and shoot the arrow as part of a Strike as normal. For a beacon shot bolt, you could activate it, load it into a crossbow, then shoot it, or load it into the crossbow, then activate it, and then shoot it.

Beacon Shot Item 3

Consumable Evocation Magical

Price 10 gp

Ammunition (arrow, bolt)

Activate Interact

The shaft of a beacon shot is studded with tiny flecks of glimmering gemstones. When an activated beacon shot hits a target, it embeds itself into that target and spews sparks for 1 minute. If the target is invisible, it becomes merely hidden to creatures who would otherwise be unable to see it. The sparks also negate the concealed condition if the target was otherwise concealed.

A creature can remove the arrow or bolt by using an Interact basic action and succeeding at a DC 20 Athletics check.

Climbing Bolt Item 4

Conjuration Consumable Magical

Price 15 gp

Ammunition (bolt)

The shaft of this bolt is wrapped with fine twine. When the bolt strikes a solid surface, the twine unwinds and enlarges into a 50-foot-long rope, securely fastened to the surface the bolt struck. The rope can be pulled free with an Interact action and a successful DC 20 Athletics check.

Disintegration Bolt Item 15

Uncommon Consumable Evocation Magical

Price 1,300 gp

Ammunition (bolt)

Activate Interact

The shaft of this bolt is scorched and blackened, and handling it coats your fingers with a fine black powder. When an activated disintegration bolt hits a target, it is subject to a disintegrate spell requiring a DC 34 Fortitude save. As with the spell, a critical hit on the attack roll causes the target’s saving throw outcome to be one degree worse.

Craft Requirements Supply one casting of disintegrate.

Explosive Ammunition Item 9+

Consumable Evocation Fire Magical

Ammunition (any)

Activate Interact

This piece of ammunition is coated in gritty black soot. When activated explosive ammunition hits a target, the missile explodes in a 10-foot burst, dealing 6d6 fire damage to each creature in the area (including the target). Each creature must attempt a DC 25 basic Reflex save.

Type standard; Level 9; Price 130 gp; Type greater; Level 13; Price 520 gp

The damage is 10d6 and the save DC is 30.

Ghost Ammunition Item 14

Magical Transmutation

Ammunition (any)

Price 900 gp

Ghost ammunition is cool to the touch. This ammunition has the benefits of the ghost touch property Rune and can fly through any obstacle except those that can block incorporeal creatures or effects. Though the ammunition penetrates barriers and ignores all cover, the target still benefits from the flat check from being concealed or hidden. You still can’t target an undetected creature without guessing.

After it is launched, the ammunition vanishes into mist.

However, in the dead of the night 1d4 days later, it reappears in the last quiver or other container it was taken from.

Penetrating Ammunition Item 12

Consumable Magical Transmutation

Price 400 gp

Ammunition (arrow, bolt)

Activate Interact

This ammunition has a slender shape and a viciously pointed tip. When you activate and shoot penetrating ammunition, the Strike takes the shape of a 60-foot line originating from you.

Roll one attack roll and compare the result to the AC of each target in the line. The ammunition ignores up to 10 of a target’s resistance, and it can penetrate walls up to 1 foot thick with Hardness 10 or less. Each target that takes damage from this ammunition also takes 1d6 persistent bleed damage.

If your attack roll result is a natural 20, you improve your degree of success only against the first target in the line, but you can still score a critical hit on other targets if your result exceeds their AC by 10 or more. If you have access to your bow’s critical specialization effect, penetrating ammunition applies that effect only against a target in the last square of the line.

Shining Ammunition Item 1

Consumable Evocation Light Magical

Price 3 gp

Ammunition (any)

A piece of shining ammunition gives off a faint glow. When shot, this ammunition sheds bright light in a 20-foot radius (and dim light to the next 20 feet) for 10 minutes. If it hits a target, it sticks, causing the target to shed Light in the same radius. A creature can remove the ammunition with an Interact action, but the ammunition itself continues to glow for the rest of the duration or until destroyed.

Sleep Arrow Item 3

Consumable Enchantment Magical Mental Sleep

Price 11 gp

Ammunition (arrow)

Activate Interact

Sleep arrows often have shafts of deep blue or black, and their fletching is exceptionally soft and downy. An activated sleep arrow deals no damage, but a living creature hit by it is subject to the effects of a sleep spell (DC 17).

Craft Requirements Supply one casting of sleep.

Spellstrike Ammunition Item 3+

Consumable Magical Transmutation

Ammunition (any)

Activate Cast a Spell

Mystic patterns create a magic reservoir within this ammunition. You activate spellstrike ammunition by Casting a Spell into the ammunition. The spell must be of a spell level the ammunition can hold, and the spell must be able to target a creature other than the caster. A creature hit by activated spellstrike ammunition is targeted by the spell. If the creature isn’t a valid target for the spell, the spell is lost.

The ammunition affects only the target hit, even if the spell would normally affect more than one target. If the spell requires a spell attack roll, use the result of your ranged attack roll with the ammunition to determine the degree of success of the spell. If the spell requires a saving throw, the target attempts the save against your spell DC.

The maximum level of spell the ammunition can hold determines its item level and Price.

Type I; Level 3; Price 12 gp; Maximum Spell Level 1st

Type II; Level 5; Price 30 gp; Maximum Spell Level 2nd

Type III; Level 7; Price 70 gp; Maximum Spell Level 3rd

Type IV; Level 9; Price 150 gp; Maximum Spell Level 4th

Price 1,300 gp

Activate Interact

This sling bullet looks like a petrified serpent’s eye. A creature hit by an activated stone bullet is subject to the effects of a 6th-level flesh to stone spell (DC 34).

Craft Requirements Supply one casting of flesh to stone.

Storm Arrow Item 9

Air Consumable Electricity Evocation Magical

Price 130 gp

Ammunition (arrow)

Activate Interact

The head of this arrow is made from gleaming copper.

When an activated storm arrow hits a target, it is buffeted by raging winds and struck by a bolt of Lightning that deals 3d12 electricity damage and the target must attempt a DC 25 Reflex saving throw. If this arrow is shot from a weapon with a shock property Rune, the save DC increases to 27, though the attack doesn’t benefit from the shock property Rune itself.

Critical Success The foe is unaffected.

Success The foe takes half damage and isn’t affected by the wind.

Failure The foe takes full damage and is buffeted by winds for 1 round, taking a –2 circumstance penalty to ranged attack rolls and a –10-foot circumstance penalty to its fly Speed.

Critical Failure As failure, but the foe takes double damage.

Vine Arrow Item 3

Conjuration Consumable Magical

Price 10 gp

Ammunition (arrow)

Activate command Leafy stalks protrude from the shaft of this rustic arrow. When an activated vine arrow hits a target, the arrow’s shaft splits and grows, wrapping the target in vines. The target takes a –10-foot circumstance penalty to its Speeds for 2d4 rounds, or until it Escapes against a DC of 19. On a critical hit, the target is also immobilized until it Escapes.

Viper Arrow Item 4

Conjuration Consumable Magical

Price 17 gp

Ammunition (arrow)

Activate command

The shaft of this arrow is covered in fine green scales, and its iron head comes to a pair of points almost like fangs. After an activated viper arrow hits a target, the arrow transforms into a viper. The target is affected by the viper’s poison, as if it had been bitten. The viper then lands in an open space adjacent to the target.

The viper has the summoned trait and acts at the end of your turn, even though you didn’t use the Sustain a Spell action. It is under the GM’s control, but it generally attacks the creature the arrow struck. The viper vanishes after 1 minute or when slain.

Craft Requirements Supply one casting of summon animal.

Oils

Oils are magical gels, ointments, pastes, or salves that are typically applied to an object and are used up in the process. They have the oil trait. Applying an oil usually takes two hands: one to hold the jar containing the oil, and another to extract the oil and apply it. You can only apply an oil to an item or creature within your reach. Because the process is so thorough, it is usually impossible to apply an oil to an unwilling target or an item in the possession of an unwilling target unless that target is paralyzed, petrified, or unconscious.

Antimagic Oil Item 20

Rare Abjuration Consumable Magical Oil

Price 13,000 gp; Usage held in 2 hands; Bulk L

This lasts for 1 minute.

Nectar of Purification Item 1

Consumable Magical Necromancy Oil

Price 3 gp; Usage held in 1 hand; Bulk L

Activate Interact

A shimmering liquid, nectar of purification is often stored in bottles similar to those used for vinegar.

Potions

A potion is a magical liquid activated when you drink it, which uses it up. Potions have the potion trait. You can activate a potion with an Interact action as you drink it or feed it to another creature. You can feed a potion only to a creature that is within reach and willing or otherwise so helpless that it can’t resist. You usually need only one hand to consume a potion or feed it to another creature.

This potion has the trait matching the damage type of the breath weapon.

Exhaling dragon breath uses a single action. The damage type and the area of the dragon breath depend on the type of dragon blood in the potion, as shown in the table below.

You have mild control over the details of this change, but you retain a strong “family resemblance” to your former appearance.

The magic functions instantaneously and can’t be counteracted. Your new anatomy is as healthy and functional as your previous body’s, potentially allowing you to procreate (depending on your ancestry’s biology). Drinking a subsequent serum of sex shift allows you to either revert back to your original form or adopt other sexual characteristics, as you choose.

Critical Failure As failure, and when someone asks you a question, you must attempt another DC 19 Will saving throw. If you fail this saving throw, you must answer the question truthfully if you are able to do so; if you succeed, you are temporarily immune to further attempts to ask the same question within the potion’s duration.

Scrolls

A scroll contains a single spell that you can cast without having to expend a spell slot. A scroll can be Crafted to contain nearly any spell, so the types of scrolls available are limited only by the number of spells in the game. The exceptions are cantrips, focus spells, and rituals, none of which can be put on scrolls. The spell on a scroll can be cast only once, and the scroll is destroyed as part of the casting. The spell on the scroll is cast at a particular spell level, as determined by the scroll. For instance, a scroll of magic missile (1st level) can be used to cast the 1st-level version of magic missile, but not a magic missile heightened to 2nd level. If no level is listed, the scroll can be used to cast the spell at its lowest level.

If you find a scroll, you can try to figure out what spell it contains. If the spell is a common spell from your spell list or a spell you know, you can spend a single Recall Knowledge action and automatically succeed at identifying the scroll’s spell. If it’s not, you must use Identify Magic to learn what spell the scroll holds.

Casting a Spell from a Scroll

Casting a Spell from a scroll requires holding the scroll in one hand and activating it with a Cast a Spell activity using the normal number of actions for that spell.

To Cast a Spell from a scroll, the spell must appear on your spell list. Because you’re the one Casting the Spell, use your spell attack roll and spell DC. The spell also gains the appropriate trait for your tradition (arcane, divine, occult, or primal).

Any physical material components and costs are provided when a scroll is created, so you don’t need to provide them when Casting a Spell from a scroll. You must replace any required material component for that spell with a somatic component. If the spell requires a focus, you must have that focus to Cast the Spell from a scroll.

Scroll Statistics

All scrolls have the same base statistics unless noted otherwise. A scroll has light Bulk, and it must be held in one hand to be activated.

Varying Statistics

Table 11–3 indicates the item level and Price of a scroll, both of which are based on the level of the spell contained on the scroll. Any costs to Cast the Spell are added to the scroll’s Price when the scroll is crafted, so a scroll containing a spell with a Cost entry will have a higher Price than what appears on the table. The scroll’s rarity matches the spell’s rarity.

The traits for a scroll vary based on the spell it contains.

A scroll always has the consumable, magical, and scroll traits, plus the traits of the spell stored on it.

Table 11–3: Scroll Statistics
Spell Level Item Level Scroll Price
1 1 4 gp
2 3 12 gp
3 5 30 gp
4 7 70 gp
5 9 150 gp
6 11 300 gp
7 13 600 gp
8 15 1,300 gp
9 17 3,000 gp
10 19 8,000 gp

Crafting a Scroll

The process to Craft a scroll is much like that to Craft any other magic item. When you begin the crafting process, choose a spell to put into the scroll. You have to either Cast that Spell during the crafting process, or someone else must do so in your presence. Casting that Spell doesn’t produce its normal effects; instead, the magic is trapped inside the scroll. The casting must come from a spellcaster expending a spell slot.

You can’t Craft a scroll from a spell produced from another magic item, for example. The caster has to provide any cost of the spell.

Like other consumables, scrolls can be crafted in batches of four. All scrolls of one batch must contain the same spell at the same level, and you must provide one casting for each scroll crafted.

Sample Scrolls

A wide variety of spells can appear on scrolls. The following specific scrolls are just examples.

Talismans

An item with the talisman trait is a magical charm, gem, stone, or other small object affixed to armor, a shield, or a weapon (called the affixed item). Each talisman holds a sliver of combat knowledge or magical energy that can be unleashed for a momentary boost of power or enhanced ability. Many talismans can be activated as a free action when you use a particular action or activity. A talisman is a consumable item and has the talisman trait.

You must be wielding or wearing an item to activate a talisman attached to it. Once activated, a talisman burns out permanently, usually crumbling into a fine dust.

Affixing a Talisman

Each talisman’s stat block indicates the type of item it can be affixed to. Affixing or removing requires using the Affix a Talisman activity. A single talisman can be affixed to only one item at a time, and an item can have only one talisman affixed to it at a time.

Affix a Talisman

Exploration Manipulate

Requirements You must use a repair kit.

You spend 10 minutes affixing a talisman to an item, placing the item on a stable surface and using the repair kit with both hands. You can also use this activity to remove a talisman. If more than one talisman is affixed to an item, the talismans are suppressed; none of them can be activated.

Conjuration Consumable Magical

Usage held in 1 hand; Bulk

Activate Interact

Each feather token appears to be a simple feather from some exotic bird. The feather’s shaft, dipped in gold, bears a single arcane Rune.

Each feather can be activated only once, with most of them permanently becoming the item in their description.

Type anchor; Level 7; Price 55 gp

This feather can be activated only on a boat. When activated, this feather transforms into a massive anchor that causes the boat to immediately stop.

Activating this feather requires you to fan it in a given direction.

If this direction is toward the sail of a vessel, the feather flutters up toward the sail and fans continuously, filling the sail with air and granting the vessel a +10-foot circumstance bonus to its Speed for 8 hours.

While holly berries are usually poisonous, these berries are infused with beneficial magic. You can pick and eat a berry as an Interact action to recover 1 Hit Point.

Activate Strike

An evil deity’s malice lies within this vial of water. You activate a vial of unholy water by throwing it as a Strike. It’s a simple thrown weapon with a range increment of 20 feet. Unlike an alchemical bomb, it doesn’t add the manipulate trait to the attack made with it.

Bag of Holding Item 4+

Conjuration Extradimensional Magical

Usage held in 2 hands; Bulk 1

Though it appears to be a cloth sack decorated with panels of richly colored silk or stylish embroidery, a bag of holding opens into an Extradimensional space larger than its outside dimensions.

You can Interact with the bag of holding to put items in or remove them just like a mundane sack. Though the bag can hold a great amount of material, an object still needs to be able to fit through the opening of the sack to be stored inside.

If the bag is overloaded or broken, it ruptures and is ruined, causing the items inside to be lost forever. If it’s turned inside out, the items inside spill out unharmed, but the bag must be put right before it can be used again. A living creature placed inside the bag has enough air for 10 minutes before it begins to suffocate, and it can attempt to Escape against a DC of 13. An item inside the bag provides no benefits unless it’s retrieved first. An item in the bag can’t be detected by magic that detects only things on the same plane.

Activate command, Interact; Effect You activate the statue by placing it on solid ground and then speaking its name, causing the statuette to transform into a living creature or creatures.

The specifics of each creature, as well as the activation’s frequency (if any), appear in its entry below.

Materials

Most items are made from readily available materials— usually leather, wood, or steel—but some weapons and armor are made from more exotic materials, giving them unique properties and other advantages. Weapons made from Precious materials are better able to harm certain creatures, and armor of these materials provides enhanced protection.

Most materials are metals; they can be used to make metal weapons and armor. The GM is the final arbiter of what items can be made using a material. An item can be made with no more than one Precious material, and only an expert in Crafting can create it. Some rare and exotic materials require master or even legendary proficiency.

A material’s Price depends on how hard it is to work, its scarcity, and its purity; most items made with Precious materials use an alloy, blend, or coating rather than using the material in its purest form. The three grades of purity for Precious materials are low-grade, standard-grade, and high-grade. Regardless of a Precious material’s purity, an item made from it gains the full effects of the Precious material, but creating higher-level items and more powerful magic Runes with Precious material requires greater purity.

Some Precious materials are available only at certain grades. For instance, adamantine can’t be low-grade, and orichalcum must be high-grade. Items made of materials with a lower grade than expected for the item’s level, or of a higher grade than necessary, will mention the Precious material’s grade.

Material Statistics

Table 11–4 below provides the Hardness, Hit Points, Broken Threshold, and example items for some types of common materials. The table has separate entries for thin items (like shields), ordinary items (like armor), and reinforced or durable structures (such as walls).

Stone is a catchall for any hard stone, such as granite and marble. Likewise, wood covers ordinary woods, such as oak and pine. Metal weapons and armor are assumed to be made of iron or steel unless noted otherwise.

If an object consists of more than one material, the GM typically uses the statistics for the strongest material involved. For instance, breaking a wall made of paper panels over a woven wooden framework would require damaging thin wood, not paper. However, the GM might choose the weaker material based on the item’s function. For instance, breaking the wooden handle of a hammer rather than its iron head would still render the item unusable. Sometimes an item is even less sturdy than the Hardness and Hit Points provided for a thin object; for instance, a twig doesn’t take 9 damage to break, even though it’s made of thin wood. Similarly, a particularly sturdy item or structure might have even higher Hardness and Hit Points. Certain structures, particularly thick walls, are so reinforced that you have to break them down over time with tools.

Precious Materials

Materials with the Precious trait can be substituted for base materials. For example, a hammer’s head could be made of adamantine instead of iron. Items made of a Precious material cost more than typical items; not only does Precious material cost more, but the crafter must invest more time working with it. In addition, more powerful items require Precious materials of greater purity.

A number of Precious materials are described below. The Price entry for each material gives the Price of a simple non-magical item made of that material, based on its Bulk (if the item is Lighter than 1 Bulk, use the price for 1 Bulk), as well as Prices for different amounts of the material itself.

Prices for armor, shields, and weapons made of Precious material are in the Armor, Shields, and Weapons sections of this section.

Crafting with Precious Materials

Only an expert crafter can create a low-grade item, only a master can create a standard-grade item, and only a legendary crafter can create a high-grade item. In addition, to Craft with a Precious material, your character level must be equal to or greater than that of the material.

Low-grade items can be used in the creation of magic items of up to 8th level, and they can hold Runes of up to 8th level. Standard-grade items can be used to create magic items of up to 15th level and can hold Runes of up to 15th level. High-grade items use the purest form of the Precious material, and can be used to Craft magic items of any level holding any Runes. Using purer forms of common materials is so relatively inexpensive that the Price is included in any magic item.

When you Craft an item that incorporates a Precious material, your initial raw materials for the item must include that material; at least 10% of the investment must be of the material for low-grade, at least 25% for standard-grade, and all of it for high-grade. For instance, a low-grade silver object of 1 Bulk costs 20 gp. of the 10 gp of raw materials you provide when you start to Craft the item, at least 1 gp must be silver. The raw materials you spend to complete the item don’t have to consist of the Precious material, though the GM might rule otherwise in certain cases.

After creating an item with a Precious material, you can use Craft to improve its grade, paying the Price difference and providing a sufficient amount of the Precious material.

Darkwood Material 8+

Uncommon Precious

Darkwood is a very Lightweight wood found primarily in oldgrowth forests; it is dark as ebony but has a slight purple tint. A darkwood item’s Bulk is reduced by 1 (or to Light Bulk if its normal Bulk is 1, with no effect on an item that normally has light Bulk). The Price of an item made of darkwood is based on the item’s normal Bulk, not its reduced Bulk for being made of darkwood, but reduce the Bulk before making any further Bulk adjustments for the size of the item.

Dragonhide Material 8+

Uncommon Precious

The hide and scales of a dragon can be used to Craft any item normally made of ordinary leather or hide. Dragonhide varies in color from blue to glittering gold, depending on the dragon it came from. Due to the scales’ resiliency, it can also be used to Craft armor usually made out of metal plates (such as a breastplate, half plate, and full plate), allowing such armor to be made without metal.

Mithral is renowned for its Lightness, durability, and effectiveness against a range of creatures including devils and lycanthropes. It has the same sheen as silver but a slightly Lighter hue. Mithral weapons and armor are treated as if they were silver for the purpose of damaging creatures with weakness to silver. A metal item made of mithral is Lighter than one made of iron or steel: the item’s Bulk is reduced by 1 (reduced to Light Bulk if its normal Bulk is 1, with no effect on an item that normally has light Bulk). The Price of an item made of this material is based on the item’s normal Bulk, not its reduced Bulk for being made of mithral, but reduce the Bulk before making any further Bulk adjustments for the size of the item.

Orichalcum Material 17+

Rare Precious

The most rare and valuable skymetal, orichalcum is coveted for its incredible time-related magical properties. This dull, coppery metal isn’t as physically sturdy as adamantine, but orichalcum’s time-bending properties protect it, granting it greater Hardness and Hit Points. If an orichalcum item takes damage but isn’t destroyed, it repairs itself completely 24 hours later.

Runes

Most magic weapons and armor gain their enhancements from potent eldritch Runes etched into them. These Runes allow for in-depth customization of items.

Runes must be physically engraved on items through a special process to convey their effects. They take two forms: fundamental Runes and property Runes. Fundamental Runes offer the most basic and essential benefits: a weapon Potency Rune adds a bonus to a weapon’s attack rolls, and the Striking Rune adds extra weapon damage dice. An armor Potency Rune increases the armor’s item bonus to AC, and the Resilient Rune grants a bonus to the wearer’s saving throws. Property Runes, by contrast, grant more varied effects—typically powers that are constant while the armor is worn or that take effect each time the weapon is used, such as a Rune that grants energy resistance or one that adds fire damage to a weapon’s attacks.

The number of property Runes a weapon or armor can have is equal to the value of its Potency Rune. A +1 weapon can have one property Rune, but it could hold another if the +1 weapon Potency Rune were upgraded to a +2 weapon Potency Rune. Since the Striking and Resilient Runes are fundamental Runes, they don’t count against this limit.

An item with Runes is typically referred to by the value of its Potency Rune, followed by any other fundamental Runes, then the names of any property Runes, and ends with the name of the base item. For example, you might have a +1 longsword or +2 greater Resilient fire-resistant chain mail.

Rune-etched armor and weapons have the same Bulk and general characteristics as the non-magical version unless noted otherwise. The level of an item with Runes etched onto it is equal to the highest level among the base item and all Runes etched on it; therefore, a +1 Striking mace (a 4th-level item) with a disrupting Rune (a 5th-level Rune) would be a 5th-level item.

Each Rune can be etched into a specific type of armor or weapon, as indicated in the Usage entry of the Rune’s stat block. Explorer’s clothing can have armor Runes etched on it even though it’s not armor, but because it’s not in the light, medium, or heavy armor category, it can’t have Runes requiring any of those categories.

Investiture

If a suit of armor has any Runes, it has the invested trait, requiring you to invest it to get its magical benefits.

Rune Formulas

The Price of a Rune’s formula is the same as the Price of a formula for an item of the same level; it can be acquired in the same way as an item formula.

The Etching Process

Etching a Rune on an item follows the same process as using the Craft activity to make an item. You must have the formula for the Rune, the item you’re adding the Rune to must be in your possession throughout the etching process, and you must meet any special Craft Requirements of the Rune. The Rune has no effect until you complete the Craft activity. You can etch only one Rune at a time.

Transferring Runes

You can transfer Runes between one item and another, including a Runestone. This also uses the Craft activity. This lets you either move one Rune from one item to another or swap a Rune on one item with a Rune on the other item. To swap, the Runes must be of the same form (fundamental or property).

If an item can have two or more property Runes, you decide which Runes to swap and which to leave when transferring. If you attempt to transfer a Rune to an item that can’t accept it, such as transferring a melee weapon Rune to a ranged weapon, you get an automatic critical failure on your Crafting check. If you transfer a Potency Rune, you might end up with property Runes on an item that can’t benefit from them. These property Runes go dormant until transferred to an item with the necessary Potency Rune or until you etch the appropriate Potency Rune on the item bearing them.

The DC of the Crafting check to transfer a Rune is determined by the item level of the Rune being transferred, and the Price of the transfer is 10% of the Rune’s Price, unless transferring from a Runestone, which is free. If you’re swapping, use the higher level and higher Price between the two Runes to determine these values. It takes 1 day (instead of the 4 days usually needed to Craft) to transfer a Rune or swap a pair of Runes, and you can continue to work over additional days to get a discount, as usual with Craft.

Fundamental Runes

Four fundamental Runes produce the most essential magic of protection and destruction: armor Potency and Resilient Runes for armor, and weapon Potency and Striking Runes for weapons. A Potency Rune is what makes a weapon a magic weapon or armor magic armor.

An item can have only one fundamental Rune of each type, though etching a stronger Rune can upgrade an existing Rune to the more powerful version (as described in each Rune’s entry). As you level up, you typically alternate between increasing an item’s Potency Rune and its Striking or Resilient Rune when you can afford to.

Fundamental Rune Etched Onto Benefit

Armor Potency Armor Increase item bonus to AC and determine maximum number of property Runes

Resilient Armor Grant item bonus to saves

Weapon Potency Weapon Grant an item bonus to attack rolls and determine maximum number of property Runes

Striking Weapon Increase weapon damage dice

Specific Armor and Weapons

Unlike armor and weapons enhanced with Runes, specific armor and weapons (such as ghoul hide or a holy avenger) are created for a specific purpose and can work quite differently from other items of their type. Specific magic armor and weapons can’t gain property Runes, but you can add or improve their fundamental Runes.

Rune Transfer Examples

You could transfer a flaming Rune from a +1 Striking flaming greatsword to a +2 Striking longsword, resulting in a +2 Striking flaming longsword and a +1 Striking greatsword. You could swap the weapon Potency Runes from a +1 longsword and a +2 greatsword, resulting in a +2 longsword and a +1 greatsword. However, you couldn’t swap a +1 weapon Potency Rune from one weapon with a flaming property Rune from another weapon, as the two Runes don’t have the same form.

When transferring a Rune to an item that can hold multiple property Runes, you can decide whether you transfer a single Rune or swap Runes between the items.

For example, a +2 weapon can hold two property Runes. If you transferred a flaming Rune from a +1 Striking flaming rapier to a +2 Striking frost warhammer, you would decide whether you wanted to end up with a +1 Striking rapier and a +2 Striking flaming frost warhammer or a +1 Striking frost rapier and a +2 Striking flaming warhammer.

You can upgrade the armor Potency Rune already etched on a suit of armor to a stronger version, increasing the values of the existing Rune to those of the new Rune. You must have the formula of the stronger Rune to do so, and the Price of the upgrade is the difference between the two Runes’ Prices.

The armor grants a +2 item bonus to saving throws.

Type major Resilient; Level 20; Price 49,440 gp

The armor grants a +3 item bonus to saving throws.

Fundamental Weapon Runes

Striking Rune 4+

Evocation Magical

Usage etched onto a weapon

A Striking Rune stores destructive magic in the weapon, increasing the weapon damage dice it deals to two instead of one. For instance, a +1 Striking dagger would deal 2d4 damage instead of 1d4 damage.

You can upgrade the Striking Rune already etched on a weapon to a stronger version, increasing the values of the existing Rune to those of the new Rune. You must have the formula of the stronger Rune to do so, and the Price of the upgrade is the difference between the two Runes’ Prices.

Type Striking; Level 4; Price 65 gp; Type greater Striking; Level 12; Price 1,065 gp

The weapon deals three weapon damage dice.

Type major Striking; Level 19; Price 31,065 gp

Upgrading Armor and Weapon Runes

You’ll often want to upgrade the fundamental Runes of magic armor or a magic weapon you already have. This requires upgrading each Rune separately. Tables 11–5 and 11–6 summarize the Price of each step, with a number in parentheses indicating the item’s level for the Craft activity. This also indicates the typical progression for an adventurer to follow when upgrading their armor and weapons. The tables here don’t include progressions that aren’t as likely to come up, like turning a +1 weapon directly into a +1 greater Striking weapon.

Table 11–5: Armor Upgrade Prices
Starting Armor Improved Armor Price and Process
+1 armor +1 Resilient armor 340 gp to etch Resilient (8th level)
+1 Resilient armor +2 Resilient armor 900 gp to etch +2 armor Potency (11th level)
+2 Resilient armor +2 greater Resilient armor 3,100 gp to etch greater Resilient (14th level)
+2 greater Resilient armor +3 greater Resilient armor 19,500 gp to etch +3 armor Potency (18th level)
+3 greater Resilient armor +3 major Resilient armor 46,000 gp to etch major Resilient (20th level)
Table 11–6: Weapon Upgrade Prices

+2 greater Striking weapon +3 greater Striking weapon 8,000 gp to etch +3 weapon Potency (16th level)
+3 greater Striking weapon +3 major Striking weapon 30,000 gp to etch major Striking (19th level)

Property Runes

Property Runes add special abilities to armor or a weapon in addition to the item’s fundamental Runes. If a suit of armor or a weapon has multiple etchings of the same Rune, only the highest-level one applies. You can upgrade a property Rune to a higher-level type of that Rune in the same way you would upgrade a fundamental Rune.

Rune abilities that must be activated follow the rules for activating magic items.

Type corrosive; Level 8; Price 500 gp; Type greater corrosive; Level 15; Price 6,500 gp

The acid damage dealt by this weapon ignores the target’s acid resistance. Increase the acid damage dealt to armor or a shield on a critical hit to 6d6.

Uncommon Evocation Magical

Price 2,700 gp; Usage etched onto a melee weapon

A dancing weapon flies autonomously and strikes your foes.

At the end of your turn each round, the weapon can Fly up to its fly Speed of 40 feet, and then can either Fly again or Strike one creature within its reach.

The weapon has a space of 5 feet, but it doesn’t block or impede enemies attempting to move though that space, nor does it benefit from or provide flanking. The weapon can’t move through an enemy’s space. The weapon can’t use reactions, and its Fly actions don’t trigger reactions.

While it’s activated, a dancing weapon makes Strikes with an attack modifier of +24 plus its item bonus to attack rolls. It uses the weapon’s normal damage but has a +0 Strength modifier.

The weapon’s abilities that automatically trigger on a hit or critical hit still function, but the weapon can’t be activated or benefit from any of your abilities while dancing.

Spell-Storing Rune 13

Uncommon Abjuration Magical

Price 2,700 gp; Usage etched onto a melee weapon

A spell-storing Rune creates a reservoir of eldritch energy within the etched weapon. A spellcaster can spend 1 minute to cast a spell of 3rd level or lower into the weapon. The spell must have a casting of 2 actions or fewer and must be able to target a creature other than the caster. The spell has no immediate effect—it is instead stored for later. When you wield a spell-storing weapon, you immediately know the name and level of the stored spell. A spell-storing weapon found as treasure has a 50% chance of having a spell of the GM’s choice stored in it.

Activate command; Requirements On your previous action this turn, you hit and damaged a creature with this weapon; Effect You unleash the stored spell, which uses the target of the triggering attack as the target of the spell. This empties the spell from the weapon and allows a spell to be cast into it again.

If the spell requires a spell attack roll, the result of your attack roll with the weapon determines the degree of success of the spell, and if the spell requires a saving throw, the DC is 30.

Activate command; Effect Harmlessly expend the stored spell. This frees the weapon to have a new spell cast into it.

Thundering Rune 8+

Evocation Magical Sonic

Specific Shields

Arrow-Catching Shield Item 11

Abjuration Magical

Price 1,350 gp; Usage held in 1 hand; Bulk 1

This wooden shield (Hardness 6, HP 24, BT 12) is carved with images of overlapping fletched arrows.

Activate Interact; Trigger A ranged weapon Strike targets a creature within 15 feet of you when you have this shield raised, and the attacker has not yet rolled their attack; Effect The triggering Strike targets you instead of its normal target. If it hits, you gain the effects of the Shield Block reaction.

Dragonslayer’s Shield Item 9

Uncommon Abjuration Magical

Price 670 gp; Usage held in 1 hand; Bulk 1

A dragonslayer’s shield is a steel shield covered with dragonhide from a certain type of dragon, which distinguishes each shield from the others. While raised, this steel shield (Hardness 8, HP 32, BT 16) grants its circumstance bonus to Reflex saves against area effects (as well as to AC, as normal).

While you hold the shield, it also grants you a +2 circumstance bonus to Will saves against a dragon’s frightful presence ability. The shield has resistance 10 against the damage type corresponding to the type of dragon whose hide was used in its creation (see dragonhide); this applies after reducing the damage for Hardness, so when you use Shield Block, the dragonslayer’s shield takes 18 less damage from attacks of that damage type. You can use Shield Block against attacks that deal damage of that type.

Craft Requirements The initial raw materials must include at least 30 gp of dragonhide.

Floating Shield Item 11+

Uncommon Magical

Usage strapped to 1 hand; Bulk L

Because you’re not wielding the shield, you can’t use reactions such as Shield Block with the shield, but you gain its benefits even when using both of your hands. After 1 minute, the shield drops to the ground, ending its floating effect. While the shield is adjacent to you, you can Interact to grasp it, ending its floating effect early.
