Balanced?[edit]

My first custom item. Feel free to let me know if it is either over/under powered, or anything else you feel needs to be changed about it, but I'd prefer to make the changes myself. Thanks. -natan_j

A little off topic, but I hope you do not mind. I formatted your item to D&D Wiki standards, editing it, but I did not change any content around so I hope it is okay. --Green Dragon 22:32, 18 September 2006 (MDT)

Wondrous Item?[edit]

Is this a wondrous item? --Green Dragon 22:37, 18 September 2006 (MDT)

Yes, it is. Glad to clear that up. -natan_j

Comparisions[edit]

A few impressions.

This item is balanced oddly. In essence, this is a really expensive component to a very good cantrip. That's problematic.

I'd rate this as a little too good. The effect is better than Detect Animals or Plants (SRD Spell) and essentially better than Locate Creature (SRD Spell). However, it's worse than Alarm.

  • The component can easily be switched out of the necklace slot, so it is no actual limiter in most cases.
  • Clairaudience/Clairvoyance has a 10 minute casting time. The casting time here is far too short.
  • Completely defeats hide, invisibility, concealment, etc.

I suggest some adjustments on this very, very useful toy. Lots of comparison with existing spells are needed.

Alright, I have decided that the medallion should be almost exactly like the Medallion of Thoughts, except for the spell it casts. I've also made it so that the focus object is a small stone eye, kinda like the copper piece for the detect thoughts spell. As for the two prblems you brought up, I've already fixed the first one, with the medallion being exactly like a already balanced medallion. As for the second, I might as well increase the time it takes to detect such a large amount of information, such as, say, ten turns for the exact details on a person, as if you were looking at them yourself. The third will probably take some time, but I have already made adjustments to invisibility limiting the information available to the amount available at 5th round. I would most appreciate if you could let me know if there are any more spells or abilities to conceal a person from magical abilities(such as, pehaps, a healing coma to mask the intelligence of a person), or if I could make any further improvements. Also, would I have to create another seperate page for the focus component for the spell? (a small stone eye) -natan_j

Epic?[edit]

Is this really an Epic Item? -Calidore Chase

I don't see why it should be, strange that someone put it under Epic. What category should it be under? --Green Dragon 12:52, 4 November 2006 (MST)
Likely just under regular wondrous items --Calidore Chase 14:34, 4 November 2006 (MST)
Done. --Green Dragon 16:28, 4 November 2006 (MST)
