Crude Tattoo, Crusader’s Friend

Aura faint abjuration; CL 3rd; Slot –; Price 282 gp; Weight


This tattoo has been made in the image of a shield bearing the holy symbol of a lawful good deity.


This simple tattoo protects warriors from being forced to harm their companions. When the bearer fails their save against a compulsion, mind-affecting, or possession effect created by an evil creature, the bearer may activate this tattoo as an immediate action. This causes the bearer to fall into a deep state of unconsciousness for 1d6 rounds, as per the sleep spell with no saving throw or HD limit. The evil creature may not use the control or compulsion granted by the original effect to wake the bearer, but may wake them as per the sleep spell, at which point the effect resumes. The tattoo merely suppresses the effect by rendering the bearer unconscious, it does not affect duration. This tattoo functions once before fading.


Feats Craft Wondrous Item; Spells protection from evil, sleep; Special Profession (calligraphy artist, painter, or tattoo artist) 3 ranks; Cost 141 gp
