Figurines of Wondrous Power
Each of the several kinds of figurines of wondrous power appears to be a tiny statuette of a creature an inch or so high (with one exception). When the figurine is tossed down and the correct command word spoken, it becomes a living creature of normal size (except when noted otherwise below). The creature obeys and serves its owner. If a figurine of wondrous power is broken or destroyed in its statuette form, it is forever ruined. All magic is lost, its power departed. If slain in animal form, the figurine simply reverts to a statuette that can be used again at a later time.
Bronze Griffon When animated, the bronze griffon acts in all ways like a normal griffon under the command of its possessor. The item can be used twice per week for up to 6 hours per use. When 6 hours have passed or when the command word is spoken, the bronze griffon once again becomes a tiny statuette. Caster Level: 11th; Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, animate objects; Market Price: 10,000 gp
Ebony Fly When animated, the ebony fly is the size of a pony and has all the statistics of a hippogriff (Hit Dice, AC, carrying capacity, speed, and so on) but can make no attacks. The item can be used three times per week for up to 12 hours per use. When 12 hours have passed or when the command word is spoken, the ebony fly again becomes a tiny statuette. Caster Level: 11th; Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, animate objects; Market Price: 10,000 gp
Golden Lions These come in pairs. They become normal adult male lions. If slain in combat, the lions cannot be brought back from statuette form for one full week. Otherwise, they can be used once per day for up to 1 hour. They enlarge and shrink upon speaking the command word. Caster Level: 11th; Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, animate objects; Market Price: 16,500 gp
Ivory Goats These come in threes. Each goat of this trio looks slightly different from the others, and each has a different function: The Goat of Traveling: This statuette provides a speedy and enduring mount equal to that of a draft horse in every way except appearance. The goat can travel for a maximum of one day each week-continuously or in any combination of periods totaling 24 hours. At this point, or when the command word is uttered, it returns to its statuette form for not less than one day before it can again be used. The Goat of Travail: This statuette becomes an enormous creature, larger than a bull, with the statistics of a nightmare except for the addition of a pair of wicked horns of exceptional size (damage 1d8+4/1d8+4). If it is charging to attack, it may only use its horns (but add +6 points of damage to each successful attack on that round). It can be called to life just once per month for up to 12 hours at a time. The Goat of Terror: When called upon with the proper command word, this statuette becomes a destrierlike mount, with the statistics of a light warhorse (but hairier). However, its rider can employ the goats horns as weapons (one horn as a +3 lance, the other as a +5 longsword). When ridden in an attack against an opponent, the goat of terror radiates fear as the spell in a 30-foot radius (DC 16). It can be used once every two weeks for up to 3 hours per use. After three uses, each of the ivory goats loses its magical ability forever. Caster Level: 11th; Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, animate objects; Market Price: 21,000 gp
Marble Elephant This is the largest of the figurines, the statuette being about the size of a human hand. Upon utterance of the command word, a marble elephant grows to the size and specifications of a true elephant. The animal created from the statuette is fully obedient to the figurines owner, serving as a beast of burden, a mount, or a combatant. The statuette can be used four times per month for up to 24 hours at a time. Caster Level: 11th; Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, animate objects; Market Price: 17,000 gp
Obsidian Steed An obsidian steed appears to be a small, nearly shapeless lump of black stone. Only careful inspection reveals that it vaguely resembles some form of quadruped. On command, the near-formless piece of obsidian becomes a fantastic mount. Treat it as a heavy warhorse with the following additional powers usable once per round at will: fly, plane shift, and etherealness. The steed allows itself to be ridden, but if the rider is of good alignment, the steed is 10% likely per use to carry the rider to the Lower Planes and then return to its statuette form. The statuette can be used once per week for one continuous period of up to 24 hours. Note that when the obsidian steed becomes ethereal or plane shifts, its rider and his or her gear follow suit. Thus, the user can travel to other planes via this means. Caster Level: 15th; Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, animate objects, fly, plane shift, etherealness; Market Price: 28,500 gp
Onyx Dog When commanded, this statuette changes into a creature with the same properties as a war dog, except that it is endowed with an Intelligence score of 8, can communicate in Common, and has exceptional olfactory and visual abilities. (It has the scent ability and adds +4 to its Spot and Search checks.) It has darkvision (range 60 feet) and it can see invisible. An onyx dog can be used once per week for up to 6 hours. It obeys only its owner. Caster Level: 11th; Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, animate objects; Market Price: 15,500 gp
Serpentine Owl A serpentine owl becomes either a normal-sized horned owl or a giant owl, according to the command word used. The transformation can take place once per day, with a maximum duration of 8 continuous hours. However, after three transformations into giant owl form, the statuette loses all of its magical properties. The owl communicates with its owner by telepathic means, informing its owner of all it sees and hears. (Remember the limitations of its Intelligence.) Caster Level: 11th; Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, animate objects; Market Price: 9,100 gp
This figurine turns into a raven on command (but it retains its silver consistency, which gives it a hardness of 10). Another command sends it off into the air, bearing a message just like a creature affected by an animal messenger spell. If not commanded to carry a message, the raven obeys the commands of its owner, although it has no special powers or telepathic abilities. It can maintain its nonfigurine status for only 24 hours per week, but the duration need not be continuous.
Caster Level: 6; Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, animal messenger; Market Price: 3,800 gp
