Trophy Belt

Price 92,800 gp; Slot belt; CL 16th; Weight 8 lbs.; Aura strong transmutation


This grisly, heavy corded belt is adorned with hollowed skulls and bones. The trophy belt counts as a belt of physical perfection +2. Additionally, whenever the wearer slays a creature, he can claim a trophy from it as a free action. The trophy manifests upon the belt, typically as a severed body part, bone, or similar tiny-sized object. Trophies cannot be claimed from summoned creatures. Upon claiming a trophy, the wielder picks one ability from the following list. It must be an ability that the killed creature possessed: burrow, climb, fly, swim, all-around vision, blindsense, blindsight, darkvision, greensight, lifesense, low-light vision, scent, see in darkness, telepathy, tremorsense, damage reduction, energy resistance or immunity (choose one type the creature had), fast healing, regeneration, spell resistance, breath weapon, bleed, burn, earth glide, fear aura, ferocity, frightful presence, hide in plain sight, natural attacks (up to two), poison, pounce, rend, stench, trample, trip, vortex, water breathing, web, or whirlwind. If the slain creature does not possess one of these abilities, then the wearer of the trophy belt cannot claim a trophy from it.

The belt can hold up to five trophies. At any point, the wearer can use a standard action to consume the magic within all trophies he currently has, gaining the selected abilities for 10 minutes. He uses each ability at the same strength as the creature the trophy was taken from (for example, if he claims a trophy for a breath weapon from an adult black dragonb1, it deals 12d6 acid damage in an 80-foot line). However, the Difficulty Class of a used ability (if any) is always DC 22, regardless of its original DC. He cannot claim any trophies while this effect is active. This is considered a polymorph effect. At the end of this duration, all trophies he currently has crumble to dust and are destroyed.

If the wearer adds a sixth trophy, he must choose one of his current trophies to replace. The replaced trophy crumbles to dust, providing no benefit. Trophies remain on the belt if it is removed, but only the creature that claimed a trophy can activate its effects.
