Lesser magical device – Silence the Heckler’s Dissent

Another low powered but useful item for a starting covenant, created for the Ars Magica RPG. I can see this item being carried by those who have to interact with normal folks, but wish to keep the upper hand during negotiation.

Created as a lesser enchanted device which allowed the user to force the target to stutter and slur words. All Communication rolls are at -3, all spoken spells are at -6 and include an extra botch dice (as per Curse of the Unruly Tongue. ArM p 134).

  • Form and Material: a small wooden baton.
  • Effect level 5, Item level 10. Crafted as a lesser enchanted device.
