Mirror of the Silent Ren

Aura moderate abjuration, illusion, and necromancy; CL 6th; Slot slotless; Price 16,800 gp; Weight 1 lb.


This reflective disk of beaten and polished bronze is etched with a hieroglyph of a mouth within a cartouche.


A user who looks into the metal and speaks her name attunes herself to the mirror, at which point the hieroglyph changes to match the name of the owner. The user’s name is held and protected by the mirror. While the user has the mirror on her person, nobody else within 100 feet can speak her name, their lips moving silently whenever attempting to do so. This naming protection grants a heightened sense of self and stability. The user gains a +4 insight bonus to saving throws vs. compulsions and all curses or effects with the curse descriptor.

Should the individual attuned to the mirror be killed, her image can be summoned into the mirror by anyone who speaks her name while holding it. This image can speak and interacting with it functions in all ways as speak with dead, except that the dead individual’s body is not required. The image can be summoned once per day rather than once per week, but the effect is limited to 6 minutes per week. The duration is measured in minutes so any interaction uses a minimum of 1 minute of the weekly limit even if a given interaction takes less than 1 minute.

The mirror can be re-attuned to a new owner at any time; doing so while it is attuned to a dead soul causes the connection to that soul to be lost. Re-attuning the mirror of a living individual has no adverse effect on either person.
