Familiar Stone (3.5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
|Blades Of Keran|
These green crystals were found in Kylanthian Ruins in the wild lands of Cyclon by Andrew Shadowborn During the Third Era. They have a strange relationship with mages and their powers, Specifically their ability to bound their soul into things to create familiars.
When held by a Binder, Dread Necromancer, Sorcerer, or Wizard, it glows a beautiful and majestic emerald green. They can then partially bind their soul to the Gem in a way similar to the Familiar Rite (Except without spending Experience or Gp). Afterwards as an free action you can convert you're familiar into Arcane Energy and place it into the gem. While the familiar is contained in the Gem it will glow a colour depending on you're alignment.
Once the familiar is "inside" the stone it can be released at anytime as a free action. If the Gem is destroyed while the Familiar is inside the gem it cracks open and arcane energy bursts out of it. This energy deals 1d6 damage for each HD of the familiar inside at the time, on every square within 15ft.
