Bell of Announcement
Aura faint abjuration; CL 3
Slot none; Price 12,000 gp; Weight 1 lbs.
This small silver bell with a clear crystal knocker can be hung from a hook, string, wire, or similar connection; this causes the knocker to glow a faint yellow (equivalent to candle light). Once in place, a password can be spoken out loud, activating the effects of the bell; the knocker glows a faint green at this point. If a creature of Tiny or larger size enters with a 20 foot emanation of an activated bell or touches it without first speaking the password, the knocker glows a faint red and the bell rings for 1 round. This ringing is audible to anyone within 60 feet of the warded area; reduce the distance by 10 feet for each interposing closed door and by 20 feet for each substantial interposing wall. In quiet conditions, the ringing can be heard faintly as far as 180 feet away. Creatures within a silence spell cannot hear the ringing. Ethereal or astral creatures do not trigger the bell. A creature remaining within the warded area will not retrigger the bell (unless they touch it), and the knocker will again glow green.
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, Alarm; Cost 6,000 gp
Collar of Hauling
Aura faint transmutation; CL 4
Slot neck; Price 1,440 gp; Weight 7 lbs.
This collar automatically resizes and reshapes to best accommodate whatever creature it is placed upon. Once worn, upon speaking the command word once per day it activates for the next 8 hours. Removing the collar removes the effect but does not interrupt the duration (one could wear it for 4 hours, remove it for 2 hours, and would have 2 hours duration remaining).
The wearer’s carrying capacity triples (see Table 7-4: Carrying Capacity on page 171 of the Core Rulebook). This does not affect the creature’s actual Strength in any way, merely the amount of material it can carry while benefiting from this spell. It also has no effect on encumbrance due to armor. If the creature wears armor it still takes the normal penalties for doing so regardless of how much weight the spell allows it to carry.
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, Ant Haul; Cost 720 gp
