Soulforge (Major Artifact)

Aura strong evocationCL 20th; Slot none; Price —; Weight —

DESCRIPTION

This massive forge is built into the structure of a temple and can’t be moved without divine intervention. Made of precious metals and gemstones, the forge is surprisingly resilient, and even hard metals can be crafted upon its seemingly soft, delicate surfaces.

Any item crafted with this forge can be constructed in half the normal amount of time.

When the forge’s furnace is fed by a specific set of bellows, the flames glow with a divine radiance and emit no noticeable heat, allowing for forging at a temperature more comfortable to the crafter. While the Soulforge is so lit, if a character’s successful Craft (armor, jewelry, locks, or weapons) check result using the forge exceeds DC 40, that crafter can choose from one of the three following special rewards.

First, the crafter can ask of the god a single miracle, so long as the request does not conflict with the lawful neutral alignment. A creature can receive at most one such miracle over the course of her life.

Second, at the GM’s discretion, the crafter can override the destruction conditions of a minor artifact without a lawful aura and destroy it in the Soulforge.

Finally, the crafter can choose for her soul to pass from her body, traveling through the Soulforge, effectively causing the crafter to die.

DESTRUCTION

If the great anvil of the Soulforge is used as a sacrificial altar to slay a willing lawful outsider of at least 18 Hit Dice while the forge burns with divine flame, the artifact is destroyed.
