The Gasping Pearl (Major Artifact)

Aura overwhelming transmutation CL 20th; Slot none; Price —; Weight 4 lbs.


A gasping pearl appears to be a perfectly spherical iridescent abalone pearl the size of a human fist. At all times, it gives forth a choking, gasping sound, as if struggling to breathe. Despite this constant, disturbing noise, a gasping pearl is not evil.

Three times per day, the bearer can call upon its power to move and control water as if by the spell control water, affecting a 500-foot-by-500-foot area up to 100 feet deep.

Once per day, a gasping pearl can also summon an elder water elemental with maximum hit points that serves the caster until it is slain; only one such elemental can be summoned at a time.


The gasping pearl can be smashed by the combined power of three elemental princes, one each from the Planes of Air, Earth, and Fire. Even then, the dust must be cast into a place where it will never touch even a drop of water.
