Banner of the Sanguine Star

Aura strong abjuration; CL 14th; Slot —; Price 111,084 gp; Weight 4 lbs.


The Banner of the Sanguine Star is old and worn from hundreds of battles, yet has not been shredded or torn. Bloodstains mark the lower part and this banner has clearly never been cleaned. It carries a single golden star on a crimson field, woven in thick cloth meant to last through the centuries. Celestial words mark the lower edge of the banner, reading; “Hope is everything!”

Carried by a paladin, this banner offers tremendous power in the form of spell-like abilities, but it also protects anyone of good alignment, offering a bonus on their saving throws.

Only corporeal creatures of good alignment receive the benefit of the resistance bonus and only paladins can use the spell-like abilities, and only when holding the banner on a pole above their heads.

The resistance bonus always applies to creatures within range, but the spell-like abilities must be activated as a standard action. These spells are cast as if enhanced by the still spell metamagic feat.

Any corporeal creature of good alignment within 50 ft. of the banner, receives a +3 resistance bonus to all saves.

Furthermore, if the banner is wielded by a paladin, it offers him the following spell-like abilities;


Feats Craft Wondrous Item, bless, comprehend languages, consecrate, cure serious wounds, daylight, entropic shield, invisibility purge, protection from evil, resistance, shield other, status, zone of truth; Cost 55,542 gp.
