Wayfinder, Shining

Aura faint divination; CL 3rd Slot none; Price 2,000 gp; Weight 1 lb.


A shining wayfinder is a polished silver compass.

In addition to the usual functions of a wayfinder (including the ability to create light), a shining wayfinder can be used to cast detect evil—when so used, its needle points not to the north but rather to the nearest source of evil within 60 feet. Once per day, a shining wayfinder can be used to cast protection from evil upon the wayfinder's bearer. A shining wayfinder functions only for a creature that is good-aligned. When held by an evil creature, the shining wayfinder's needle spins in a frantic circle. When held by any creature that is both nonevil and nongood, the needle simply hangs limply, not pointing to anything at all (not even to true north).
