Key of the Second Vault

Price 3,000 gp; Slot none or neck; CL 5th; Weight —; Aura faint transmutation and conjuration [lawful]


Note: This item is associated with a specific deity.

This elaborate key on a fine gold chain always glints, even in the dimmest light.

The bearer can use it to lock (but not unlock) any non-magical lock as if it were the proper key. Once per day, the bearer can turn the key clockwise once to activate a shield of faith upon herself (though if the wearer is chaotic it provides only a +1 deflection bonus).

If the associated deity is the bearer’s patron, the key counts as a holy symbol. Once per day, the bearer can speak a command word and summon a two-headed eagle as if using summon monster II (the eagle’s extra head does not grant it an extra attack). This eagle obeys the bearer’s commands as if they shared a common language. While the key is worn as a pendant or held in hand, the bearer gains a +2 bonus on Appraise checks to assess an object’s value.


Cost 1,500 gp; Feats Craft Wondrous Item, fox’s cunning, shield of faith, summon monster II; Special creator must have 5 ranks in Appraise
