Custom/converted magic items for my homebrew campaign world “The Ninth World”. Placed here for my PCs to reference.
Mithril Ring of Protection
- XP 2,500
- GP 25,000
The ring of protection is writ with runes of invulnerability. While worn, the hand on which it sits is as invulnerable as mithril. If you are not carrying anything in that hand, you may use your hand like a light shield by catching and deflecting blows with your bare hand (opposed attack-roll checks as part of a reaction) as you simply twist weapons away from the hands of combatants by grabbing the blade.
Additionally, you can use your hand as an invulnerable tool – -up unto the wrist. You can dip your finger in acid, hold open a door that slams shut, or catch a swinging pendulum blade. Still, the ring does not confer super strength or other protection. The force of a blow might shatter your shoulder.
You can elect to shatter the ring of protection to automatically pass a saving throw. You must make this decision before making the roll.
