Pendant of the Blood Scarab

Aura faint divination; CL 3rd
Slot neck; Price 1,000 gp; Weight


A carved ruby in the shape of a scarab set in gold, this magic amulet grants its wearer insight on where to strike a creature so as to maximize pain and distress. This pendant must be worn against bare flesh in order to function.

Once per day, as an immediate action, when the wearer of a pendant of the blood scarab threatens a critical hit with any attack, he may automatically confirm the critical hit. When the user activates this ability, the pendant’s spiky little legs momentarily animate and clutch against the wearer’s skin, dealing 1d6 points of damage as the amulet burrows and digs into the wearer’s body in apparent delight at the devastating blow inflicted on the enemy.
