Swords & Wizardry Appreciation, Seven Magic Items, Day Four

The Eye of the Storm (Magic Item)

The Eye of the Storm is a beautifully cut round amethyst, with dark swirls within it. The holder of the Eye may call upon the power of the storm to create a violent hurricane in his/her vicinity. The storm will create magical winds reaching hundreds of miles per hour, picking up all individuals and objects not bolted down within a 100 yard radius and throwing them violently away from the user.

Victims of the Eye outdoors must roll a save to avoid being dashed against an obstacle and killed instantly; falling damage may still occur. If the Eye is used indoors – e.g. a dungeon – victims are dashed against the nearest wall and killed instantly, no save. At the GM's discretion, very high level PCs, NPCs and monsters may take damage equal to 50% of their total hp, rather than suffering instant death.

The user of the Eye, along with anyone within a 10' radius of him or her, will suffer no ill effects from the storm, as this area is completely calm.

The Eye of the Storm can only be used only once per year. The Eye recharges on the stormiest day of the height of the campaign world's storm season. The GM, at his/her discretion, may also require a ritual for the recharge to occur.


  1. All the more reason to close in on your foes quickly!

  2. Very impressive item ... as long as you are the one using it. :)

  3. Hmmm...better keep Dante lashed down to something.
