Wyrmsteeth Bracers (F034)
Magical Item – Rare – Wyrmsteeth Bracers – 12,170 gp
- Standard: Designed to work with dragon forelegs and shows the hatchery symbol on it, each has half of a round crystal embedded in the design. While wearing these bracers, you use the dodge action as a bonus action once per long rest. You can use the bracers as a spellcasting focus for your wizard spells.
- You can use an action to determine which way is north. This property functions only on the material plane.
- You can spend a bonus action to make your scales glisten as if in the sun.
- Attunement: While wearing these bracers, you gain a +2 bonus to AC if you are wearing no armour and using no shield. Glows warm if another dragon is within 120 ft other than the attuned owner.
- You can link the bracers to a location you touch it to, and instead of knowing which way is north, it will know which way this location is. This effect can only be used once per long rest. It grows warm when another dragon (other than the holder) is within 120 ft.
- This item also points to the Wrymsteeth Mountains hatchery as well as north if used by a dragon.
- Can change the colour, shape and style of the bracers as a bonus action. And when making scales glitter, wings ripple as if in a breeze.
- You have Advantage on making a first impression once per day, refreshes at sunrise. While you are attuned to it, it can’t be picked up, stolen or moved by another.
- You can try to cast a cantrip that you don’t know. The cantrip must be on the Wizard spell list, and you must make a DC 10 Intelligence (Arcana) check. If the check succeeds, you cast the spell. If the check fails, so does the spell, and the action is wasted. In either case, you can’t use this property again until you finish a long rest. While attuned you can speak and understand the Dwarven language.
- Relic: If attuned by a giant, you can increase the protection to +3. When a gnome is attuned to this item you roughly know the distance to the location. A halfling attuned to this item has advantage on charm checks against targets larger than you while attuned once per short rest. As an elf, if your attuned you can use it once per short rest.
- Details built from: Created by dragons. Property of Language, Property of Loyal, Alfheim Wizardry Hat, Eastshire Cloak, Wyrmsteeth Orb
