DM’s Pencil (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Wondrous Item (wand), artifact (Requires attunement)
John Wick used this pencil. It looks like an ordinary shrift, no? Well, you would be wrong. Whoever wields this essentially gains the powers of the game master! Because of its great and dangerous power, the road to get it is also very treacherous and will destroy friendships. You will probably have to get behind your DM's screen and actually steal their pencil. This item is not obtainable in the event you are playing a digital campaign, or if your DM just doesn't play the old-fashioned way. But if you manage to get the tool and somehow don't kicked out of the game for your shenanigans, congratulations! You have this pencil that can wreak havoc in a fake world of imagination and numbers!
Random Properties. The DM’s pencil has the following random properties:
- 4 minor beneficial properties
- 2 major beneficial properties
- 2 minor detrimental properties
- 1 major detrimental property
The Power Scribe. This pencil comes with a writing end and an erasing end. Using them in tandem, you yourself can change your character sheet however you want in the middle of the game, without going through any plot whatsoever. With this power, you can change your ability scores and increase them over 20, so long as it is a number that fits on the space provided on your sheet! You can also write any traits, features, or feats you want for yourself.
Destroying the DM’s pencil. Can be destroyed at the DM’s discretion only (like if they decide to kick you off the table for being a prankster)
