Shadow Elf specific Magical Items

by Kyle Knight

For those who play Shadow Elves, or DM's who made such items for their NPC's:

Fan made adventure called: The Wanderer's Grave had a Staff of the Wanderer that combined a Staff of Healing w/ a Staff of Harming

Ring of Rafiel (my own recent creation)
(Combines the benefits of a Ring of Holiness w/ a Ring of Wizardry. Replaces the need for carrying a Soul Crystal when outside Shadow Elf Territory).
Shaman Bonus Spells: 1 1st, 1 2nd & 1 3rd
Wizard Bonus Spells: 1 1st, 1 2nd & 1 3rd

The first "offical" appearance of this ring was in the hands of the Shadow Elf Shaman: Calenderi. Shortly after receiving her first Soul Crystal, it shattered & in it's place lay this ring. Since then more of these rings have appeared to new Shamans after their Soul Crystals mysteriously shattered, revealing the ring w/in. While Calenderi's Ring of Rafiel is the first "offically" known, or recognized, ring; there are whispers of the ring appearing once before.
According to the vague whispers, hundreds of years ago a male Shaman was mysteriously found & raised by the Temple. He disappeared before being offically recognized as a Shaman, only to reappear centuries later bearing a Ring of Rafiel & wielding the full powers of a Shaman.
Whatever the true story, these rings only appear to 1 in 25 new Shamans & marks those Shamans for a life of adventure outside Shadow Elf Territory. Calenderi is the only Shaman, to date, to receive a ring & remain w/in Shadow Elf territory.
