Revelation Quill (Minor Artifact)

Slot none; Aura strong divination; CL 20th; Weight 3 lbs.


The quill is fashioned from a peacock’s tail feather. Its nib is made of bone, and when held in one’s hand, the quill seems strangely heavy. If placed in an empty vial or other glass container of similar size and left there for an hour, a revelation quill fills that container with ink. The ink created is of a random color 50% of the time, otherwise the ink is black.

While a revelation quill can certainly function as a standard writing implement, its true strength lies in its ability to answer questions. Once per day, if the user concentrates on a specific future goal, event, or activity occurring within the coming week, the revelation quill takes over and writes out a short phrase in response, often in the form of a cryptic rhyme or omen, much in the same way the divination spell functions. Once per week, the user may use the quill in the same way to cast contact other plane instead, asking up to 10 questions of the mysterious intellect that guides the revelation quill.


The quill must be tricked into revealing the method of destroying itself without asking it to reveal that method.
