Aura faint evocation (force); CL 3rd; Slot ring; Price 900 gp; Weight —
This ring vibrates slightly, when closely observed.
A ring of forceful strikes continually absorbs portions of the kinetic energy generated by the normal movement of its wearer’s hand over the course of their daily activities, converting it to raw stored force energy.
A ring of forceful strikes has 3 charges. After 8 hours of rest, any expended charges are recovered, resetting the total charges to 3.
- 1 charge: One unarmed strike the ring wearer makes deals lethal damage instead of non-lethal plus an additional 1d4 + Strength bonus points of force damage.
- 2 charges: Unarmed strikes the ring wearer makes in one round deal lethal damage instead of non-lethal plus an additional 1d4 + Strength bonus points of force damage for each successful attack.
- 3 charges: The wearer may make a ranged touch attack vs. a single target within 30 feet. A hit deals 3d4 force damage.
If worn by a monk who chooses to use their unarmed strike, the monk can choose (at no charge cost), to do force damage with their attacks, instead of normal bludgeoning damage. Should they choose to do so, however, the damage dealt is reduced, as if the monk was 4 levels lower (minimum 1st level).
