Drum of Feeble Flesh

Aura moderate necromancy; CL 10th

Slot -; Price 15,000 gp; Weight 1.5 lb.


This small drum is about 6 inches in diameter, 6 inches deep, and is framed with the rib cage of some diminutive figure.  Leathery flesh has been drawn tight over the frame, providing a ghastly drumming surface.  It can be played as a normal drum, but once per day the command word can be spoken and the drummer makes a DC 20 Perform (percussion instruments) check.

Success means it creates a pulse of negative energy that fills a 20-foot-cone.  All living creatures caught in the cone become cursed for 1d4 rounds (a DC 16 Will save negates).  The curse maximizes any damage variables they are subject to for the curse’s duration.  The DC for the Will save to negate increases depending upon the result of the Perform check which is detailed below.

 Check Result  Modifier
 15  +1
 20  +2
 25  +3
 30+  +4

Failure on the Perform check results in the drummer being affected by the equivalent of a ray of enfeeblement spell (caster level 10).


Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, bestow curse, ray of enfeeblement; Cost 7,500 gp
