    Candle of Abaddon


    Aura strong necromancy and abjuration; CL 13th

    Slot none; Price 9,000 gp; Weight 1 lb.

    DESCRIPTION

    Molded from a pale, milky green wax into the shape of a column of screaming souls, and stamped on the bottom with the unholy symbol of one of the Four Horsemen, the candle of Abaddon is a boon to evil spellcasters, but also to any who would summon or interact with daemons. When burned, the candle sheds eerie illumination in a radius of 15 feet, similar to Abaddon’s perpetual eclipse.

    A spellcaster within the radius of the burning candle gains a +2 bonus to caster level when casting spells with the evil descriptor. The light also acts as a magic circle against evil, but only against daemons. Within the light, all creatures take 1 point of damage per round, natural healing doesn’t work, and magical healing requires a DC 24 caster level check to succeed.

    A candle normally burns for 4 hours, and any burning consumes at least 1 minute of its power. It is possible to extinguish the candle simply by blowing it out, so users often place it in a lantern to protect it from drafts and the like. Doing this doesn’t interfere with its magical properties.

    CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS
