Orb of Dragonshape

Aura strong transmutation; CL 19th; Slot none; Weight 4 lbs.


Once per day, the bearer of one of these scintillating, 1-foot-diameter orbs can transform into a Huge dragon of a specific variety. This effect is similar to that created by form of the dragon III, but the bearer also gains spell resistance 21 and the following abilities linked the orb's dragon type, usable three times during the transformation. The transformation lasts for 10 minutes and cannot be ended prematurely.


To destroy an Orb of Dragonshape that transforms the user into a good-aligned dragon, an evil dragon must use the orb to transform and sacrifice itself to save another. To destroy an orb tied to evil dragons, a good dragon must use it to transform and go on a rampage resulting in the death of more than 100 innocents.
