Wayfinder, Shining

Price 2,000 gp; Slot none; CL 3rd; Weight 1 lb.; Aura faint divination


A shining wayfinder appears as a polished silver compass.

In addition to the usual functions of a wayfinder (including the ability to create light) a shining wayfinder can be used to cast detect evil-when so used, its needle points not to the north but rather to the nearest source of evil within 60 feet. Once per day, a shining wayfinder can be used to cast protection from evil upon the wayfinder’s bearer. A shining wayfinder functions only for a creature that is good-aligned. When held by an evil creature, the shining wayfinder’s needle spins in a frantic circle. When held by any creature that is both nonevil and nongood, the needle does not point to anything in particular (not even to the north).


Cost 1,000 gp; Feats Craft Wondrous Item; Spells detect evil, light, protection from evil
