Figurine Of Wondrous Power: Scorpion Throne
Owen Stephens posted this image on FB. With the Halloween theme for RPGBloggers being Things That Go Bump In The Night, I decided this fit, reasonably well, and as you may have noted from my update schedule, getting any content on here lately is a triumph, so you’ll bloody well like it!
The image source, BTW, is this Russian site. I didn’t know there were Russian sites that weren’t serving porn and malware. Huh.
Scorpion Throne Figurine Of Wondrous Power
Aura: Strong Transformation CL 14 Price 78,400 gp
This figurine is actually constructed as a clever mechanical puzzle, about four inches in size. Interlocking and pivoting parts allow it to be transformed between the scorpion shape and the form shown in the picture above. (Rumors of similar figurines, which include a freight carriage, a crossbow, and a glider, cannot be confirmed.) When the command word is spoken, it becomes one of two creatures, depending on the form it was in. If it was only partially changed, the command word fails. (Reconfiguring the figurine is a standard action that provokes an AOO. Excessive force is not required!)
- Its Dexterity is 18, giving it AC 19 (Touch 13), and its Reflex save becomes +5
- It has a stinger attack instead of a slam attack: +9 (1d8+5) and poison (Injury; save Fort DC 15; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d2 Strength damage; cure 1 save.) It takes this attack on its rider’s turn.
- As it has six legs, it has a +8 racial bonus to CMD vs. trip attacks.
