Circlet of Preservation
Aura Strong enchantment and transmutation CL 20th
This heavy torc of blackened adamantine, with glittering rubies embedded in the ends, adjusts to fit the neck of any Medium warforged. If a warforged character attaches the circlet, the circlet reveals its power to the bearer. The torc is designed to absorb the consciousness of a warforged
when its body is critically damaged, and to repair its injuries. The circlet restores 1 hit point of damage every 10 minutes, even if the bearer has been reduced below –9 hit points; as soon as the character’s hit point total rises above –9, his consciousness is restored to his body.
The circlet can be removed if a warforged bearing it has less than 0 hit points, which prevents the circlet from repairing the warforged. However, the warforged character’s mind remains in the circlet. If a warforged attaches a circlet that already contains the memories of another warforged, the two warforged must immediately make opposed Will saving throws. The victor gains control of the body; the loser is trapped in the circlet. This test can be repeated once every 24 hours. The consciousness within the circlet acts like a docent; it can communicate telepathically with the warforged it is attached to and perceive the world through its host’s senses. It is possible that the two spirits can come to a symbiotic relationship. A warforged can willingly allow the spirit within the circlet to take over its body. However, willingly or not, the personality switch can only occur once every 24 hours.
A circlet of preservation is highly resistant to damage. It is made of spell-hardened adamantine and has a hardness of 25 and 50 hit points. In addition, it repairs damage at a rate of 1 hit point every round.
