Ring of Elemental Command
All four types of elemental command rings are very powerful. Each appears to be nothing more than a lesser magic ring until fully activated (see below), but each has certain other powers as well as the following common properties:
Elementals of the plane to which the ring is attuned cant attack the wearer, or even approach within 5 feet of him or her. If the wearer desires, he or she may forego this protection and instead attempt to charm the elemental (as charm monster, Will save DC 17). If the charm attempt fails, however, absolute protection is lost and no further attempt at charming can be made.
Creatures from the plane to which the ring is attuned who attack the wearer suffer a -1 penalty to their attack rolls. The ring wearer makes applicable saving throws from the extraplanar creatures attacks with a +2 resistance bonus. The wearer gains a +4 morale bonus to all attacks against such creatures. Any weapon the wearer uses bypasses the damage reduction of such creatures, regardless of any qualities the weapon may or may not have.
The wearer of the ring is able to converse with creatures from the plane to which the ring is attuned. These creatures recognize that he or she wears the ring. They show a healthy respect for the wearer if alignments are similar. If alignments are opposed, creatures fear the wearer if he or she is strong. If the wearer is weak, they hate and desire to slay him or her. Fear, hatred, and respect are determined by the DM.
The possessor of a ring of elemental command suffers a saving throw penalty as follows:
Element Saving Throw Penalty ------- -------------------- Air -2 against earth-based effects Earth -2 against air- or electricity-based effects Fire -2 against water- or cold-based effects Water -2 against fire-based effects
In addition to the powers described above, each specific ring gives its wearer the following abilities according to its type:
