Banner of the Supernatural Sign

Aura: moderate abjuration, conjuration, evocation and transmutation; CL 12th; Slot: hand; Price: 30,000 gp; Weight: 10 lbs.


These banners are emblazoned with one of the lesser signs described in Chapter 7: Supernatural Signs. The bearer of the banner can call forth the lesser powers of the sign, just as if he himself bore the sign. For example, a banner of the sign of the Great Cross would provide its bearer with two spell-like or special abilities from the lesser sign of the Great Cross’s list of powers. The specific powers are determined by the GM, based on the sign’s list.

However, the bearer’s alignment must not be opposed to the sign’s alignment (e.g., good vs. evil or law vs. chaos), or the banner will not function. The banner allows each sign power to be used once per day, no matter how many times the bearer picks up the banner, and no matter how many different bearers carry the banner in a single day. If a sign special ability power does not have a listed duration or method of invoking it, such as damage reduction or immunity: disease, etc., it is invoked by the banner bearer as a free action and lasts for 2d6 rounds. The banner may be held in one hand in order to free the other hand.

The banner is typically made of a magically hardened wood or iron frame supporting a cloth, silk, or hide banner. The entire banner has 35 hit points and a hardness of 5.
