Saboteur’s Signet

Aura moderate divination; CL 9th; Slot ring Weight -; Price 18,000 gp


A favored tool for saboteurs, a saboteur’s signet at first looks as any other signet ring. The signet is usually custom-made to be a call sign for a particular saboteur. Pressing the signet into wax to seal a letter magically seals the letter; this is similar to an arcane lock, but prevents anyone from opening the letter. The arcane lock effect does not create an actual lock, and as such it can only be removed by dispel magic or knock. The user of the ring can designate up to three other creatures that can open the letter, designated at the time of sealing it. The wearer of the saboteur’s signet can always open letters she seals.

While anyone can use the above effect, the ring is especially potent in the hands of an actual saboteur. The ring is keyed to one of the four types of mark a saboteur can use with her marked target class feature. When a saboteur uses that type of mark, she treats her saboteur level as being +4 levels higher to determine the effects of that mark (including any saboteur tricks that improve that mark, such as cunning resistance or eldritch insight). To randomly determine what mark type the ring is keyed to, roll on the following table:

Assassin’s Mark
Charlatan’s Mark
Duelist’s Mark
Informant’s Mark
