SRD:Ring of Virtuous Good
From D&D Wiki
|This material is published under the OGL|
The wearer of this ring is constantly sheathed in a holy aura effect. It bestows one negative level on any evil creature that puts it on. The negative level remains as long as the ring is worn and disappears when the ring is removed. This negative level never results in actual level loss, but it cannot be over-come in any way (including restoration spells) while the ring is worn.
