Frozen Quiver

Aura moderate evocation; CL 10th; Slot —; Price 6,750 gp; Weight 2 lbs.


Made from polar bear leather, this item appears to be a typical arrow container capable of holding up to 10 arrows. The outside of the quiver feels cool to the touch, but the space inside the container radiates a constant temperature of 0° Fahrenheit (–17° Celsius). When the quiver’s owner reaches into the container, he draws an arrow crafted from solid ice. The arrow has no enhancement bonus, but counts as a magical weapon and deals cold damage for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction and affecting creatures vulnerable to cold. When the wielder scores a critical threat with an arrow drawn from the quiver, he can forego confirming the critical hit and instead subject the target to an effect identical to the icy prison spell (DC 17 Reflex save partial).

The quiver replenishes expended arrows at a rate of one per day. If the quiver’s contents are fully exhausted, it loses its magical properties forever and becomes a non-magical container. An arrow drawn from its quiver melts 10 minutes later. An arrow exposed to temperatures above the freezing point (32° Fahrenheit, 0° Celsius) melts in 1 round, while an arrow subjected to an open flame or fire damage instantly turns into harmless steam.
