The pendant radiates Superb spirit and protective magic, though these effects do not accurately reflect the device's nature. The pendant is a spirit snare, designed to capture and hold an elemental creature of nature. The creature contained within is a life-giving elemental with only a dim awareness of its surroundings. A Great test of divination magic will reveal the process required to tap into the trapped spirit's powers, while a Superb test will reveal the process required to free the spirit contained within.
To activate the pendant's powers the owner must meditate upon the flickering light it contains, opening their will to that of the spirit contained within. Obtaining the proper mindset to do this requires a Great test of will. After ten minutes meditation the spirit will form a spiritual bond with the owner, which has two effects:
- Maintaining the bond drains the owner's will, causing a two rank penalty to any skill tests or resistance checks involving willpower.
- The owner gains the spirit's powers of renewal, healing one rank of damage every ten minutes, and gaining a two rank bonus to any resistance checks versus poison, disease, or other natural damage sources.
Should the owner attempt the rite required to free the spirit, a Good difficulty ritual, the pendant will shatter, leaving the owner with nothing but a Good value silver chain and broken bits of green glass. Note that the spirit is not particularly unhappy with its current status, as it is a very low order entity.
