Slaver’s Madu

Price 5,590 gp; Slot shield; CL 3rd; Weight 5 lbs.; Aura faint enchantment


A common sight among slavers, this +1 leather madu is adorned with body parts—ranging from fingers and toes to severed heads—each one crudely affixed to the shield’s spikes.

The wielder of the shield gains a +4 competence bonus on Intimidate checks while the shield is visible. The wearer and any associated companions take a –4 penalty on all Diplomacy checks made against good-aligned creatures while the shield is visible.

Once per day as a standard action, the wielder of a slaver’s madu can shake the shield, causing the fetishes to rattle uncontrollably for 3 rounds. When he shakes the shield, the wielder can choose one creature within 35 feet to suffer the effects of the spell castigate as long as the fetishes continue shaking.


Cost 2,890 gp; Feats Craft Magic Arms and Armor; Spells castigate
