Fulcrum LensesItem 9+

This Item is from the Abomination Vaults Adventure Path and may contain Spoilers

Source Pathfinder #165: Eyes of Empty Death pg. 75
Fulcrum lenses are unique magical crystals that each contain a sliver of Nhimbaloth's essence. They belong to a larger set of lenses created to manipulate or even bind the Empty Death; most of the other lenses are long lost and likely destroyed. The Haruvex family came into possession of four of the lenses, and they knew that bringing them together focused Nhimbaloth's attention in unprecedented and dangerous ways. Belcorra brought all four lenses to the Abomination Vaults with her, intending to install them in Gauntlight for her ultimate revenge upon Absalom. She also created a special receptacle called the Fulcrum Lattice to hold the lenses so that their power could be focused together. She realized the danger of keeping the fulcrum lenses too close together until the right time and spread them out among loyal groups in the Abomination Vaults' lowest levels for safekeeping.

Belcorra keeps only the most powerful lens, the Ebon Fulcrum Lens, with her—indeed, as a ghost, it's the only one she can carry. If the heroes can bring the other three lenses to bear against Belcorra, they can draw Nhimbaloth's dread glare to the sorcerer. Despite her loyalty, Belcorra can't hope to keep her spirit intact when Nhimbaloth gazes directly upon it.

The fulcrum lenses are more than mere receptacles of Nhimbaloth's essence. Each grants those who use it a fragment of the Great Old One's power.

This concave lens has a drifting crimson cloud resembling slowly swirling blood within it. While you have the Crimson Fulcrum Lens invested, you seethe with malevolent fury you can barely contain. You gain a +2 item bonus to saving throws against fear effects and a +2 item bonus to your melee Strike damage (this increases to a +4 item bonus to damage if the melee Strike is a jaws attack). You can also activate the lens in the following ways.

Activate Two ActionsTwo Actions Interact; Frequency once per day; Effect You grasp the Crimson Fulcrum Lens in one hand and make a Strike that doesn't require that hand. The Strike deals an additional 1d8 precision damage (or 2d8 precision damage if you make a jaws Strike) and doesn't count toward your multiple attack penalty.

Activate Two ActionsTwo Actions Interact (attack, possession); Effect While grasping the lens, make a melee spell attack roll with a modifier of +18. On a hit, you force the splinter of Nhimbaloth's essence from the lens to possess the target. You're no longer invested in the lens, and the target gains the benefits as though it had invested the lens but can't activate the lens's other abilities. This effect is permanent, but it can be ended by any effect that removes a possession effect. The lens doesn't have any magical abilities until the possession effect ends; when it does, the essence returns to the lens.

This strangest and most powerful of the fulcrum lenses resembles a chip of smooth obsidian containing three dark glimmers of Nhimbaloth's essence. Incorporeal creatures can touch and hold the Ebon Fulcrum Lens. While you have the Ebon Fulcrum Lens invested, and you're a corporeal creature, you become insubstantial, gain the incorporeal trait, and are drained 2. Your drained condition can't be reduced below 2 as long as you have the lens invested. You can activate the lens in the following ways. Both require expenditures of glimmers within the lens; once the lens is depleted of its three glimmers, it retains its ability to make corporeal creatures insubstantial but can't be used for its other abilities until its glimmers are restored (which generally requires a ritual or being steeped in an area of Nhimbaloth's power).

Activate ReactionReaction envision; Frequency once per day; Requirement At least one glimmer remains in the Ebon Fulcrum Lens; Prerequisites you have the rejuvenation ability; Trigger you would be destroyed and are able to rejuvenate; Effect For the first 24 hours after you rejuvenate, you gain a +1 item bonus to attack rolls, saving throws, and DCs. Reduce the number of glimmers remaining in the lens by 1.

Activate Two ActionsTwo Actions Interact; Frequency once per day; Requirement At least one glimmer remains in the Ebon Fulcrum Lens; Effect You draw upon a glimmer of Nhimbaloth's essence for power; reduce the number of glimmers remaining in the lens by 1.
