Each of the legendary Orbs of Dragonkind contains the essence and personality of a powerful dragon. The Orb of Gold Dragonkind was the most powerful of them all, until it was shattered by Mengkare’s draconic breath. Reconstructed at great expense by enslaved spellcasters toiling under the Scarlet Triad’s watch, the Flawed Orb of Gold Dragonkind is a shadow of its prior self, yet it remains a potent weapon against dragons of all types.

While carried, the Flawed Orb of Gold Dragonkind grants its owner resistance 30 to the Breath Weapons of gold dragons. The owner also can sense if there are any dragons within 10 miles, or any gold dragons within 100 miles. When within 1 mile of a dragon, they can determine the direction to the dragon and the dragon’s age category (such as young, ancient, or wyrm).

Activate Three ActionsThree Actions envision, Interact; Frequency Three times per day; Effect You attempt to overwhelm a dragon’s mind—while you cannot control the dragon, you can render it immobile for a short time. Choose a dragon within 60 feet; the dragon can attempt to resist the orb with a DC 30 Will saving throw (or higher with orb shards). Gold dragons take a –4 circumstance penalty to this saving throw. Any stun from this activation ends if the dragon is attacked or otherwise subject to a hostile act other than that of the orb.

Critical Success The dragon is unaffected.
Success The dragon is stunned 3.
Failure The dragon is stunned for as long as the orb’s wielder Sustains the Activation.
Critical Failure As failure, but hostile actions don’t end the dragon’s stun. Destruction The Flawed Orb of Gold Dragonkind is resilient, but its imperfect nature leaves it vulnerable. It can be damaged or even destroyed by mundane attacks (Hardness 40, HP 200, BT 100). It has weakness 30 to the Breath Weapons and Strikes of gold dragons.

Orb ShardItem 20

A shard of the Orb of Gold Dragonkind resembles a pointed length of crystal about the size and shape of a shortsword without a hilt. It functions as a +3 striking shortsword that deals 2d6 extra damage to dragons.

Each orb shard within 60 feet of the flawed orb of Gold Dragonkind increases the save DC against the orb by 1; thus, if all 13 remaining orb shards are in this area, the save DC against the flawed orb increases from DC 30 to DC 43. A talented spellcaster or crafter can integrate an orb shard back into the flawed orb to make this DC increase permanent.
