Embalmer's Jar

Aura moderate transmutation; CL 8th; Slot slotless; Price 24,400 gp; Weight 8 lbs.


This ceramic jar is inscribed with glyphs of necromantic blessings. 


As long as an organ taken from a corporeal undead (or a body from which incorporeal undead spawned) is placed within the embalmer’s jar, the undead that donated the organ gains one of the following advantages:

  • The heart: +2 profane bonus to Charisma
  • The liver: +2 profane bonus to Strength
  • The spleen: +1 enhancement bonus to attack and damage rolls with natural attacks
  • The brain: +2 profane bonus to initiative.

An undead may only benefit from one embalmer’s jar at a time. The embalmer’s jar only holds a single organ. When an organ is removed from its jar, it rots immediately, thereafter negating the associated bonus. A skilled embalmer can extract an organ, prepare it, and place it in the jar in one hour.
