Lightning Brand

Aura strong evocation; CL 20th; Slot none; Price —; Weight 3 lbs.


When this minor artifact sears its barbed lightning bolt symbol into each of a person’s palms, arcane electricity courses through the recipient, imbuing the branded palms with the power to call forth a bolt of lightning 3/day (as a lightning bolt). The first bolt each day strikes for 6d6 damage; each successive bolt strikes for 2d6 less damage (4d6 then 2d6) as the power drains away. This imbued power requires 8 hours of uninterrupted rest to recharge.

The recipient takes 2d6 damage from the application of each brand and cannot use the imbued powers until this damage is healed. Only a wish or miracle can remove the scars themselves.

The Lightning Brand can administer 10 magical brands (5 people) each month, after which it needs to recharge for a full month. Both palms must be branded for the imbued power to function, and the brands interfere with any magical rings worn, causing them not to function.


Wrapping the Brand in a blessed nest of yew and oak branches, then placing it on an altar during the summer solstice at high noon causes it to sputter and melt, destroying it.
