Soul Lens (Major Artifact)

Aura strong necromancy; CL 20th

Slot none; Weight 8 lbs.

DESCRIPTION

This large lens of red crystal has the rune for enchantment and lust inscribed upon its surface. The lens is fitted in an iron ring, which is attached to an articulated arm that allows the lens’s position to be adjusted to any angle and configuration. The soul lens has but a single purpose— whenever a creature is subjected to a specific ritual in which its body is branded, tattooed, or otherwise marked with the Septemplex rune, the lens can focus upon that creature’s soul. At any point thereafter when the marked creature dies, its soul passes through this lens on its way into the afterlife and eventual judgment—as the soul passes through, the soul lens filters elements of the sin of greed from the soul and focuses that fragment of soul-energy into the Runewell of Lust. This does not significantly damage the soul (although it does cause it a severe amount of spiritual anguish)—a creature that dies and has its soul filtered through the soul lens can still be brought back to life as normal.

DESTRUCTION

A parasitic weapon must be used to smash the soul lens.

The soul lens has hardness 20 (this hardness cannot be bypassed) and 200 hit points, but the parasitic weapon gains the full benefits of its bane special abilities when damaging the soul lens. The soul lens takes no damage from other attacks.
