Wondrous item, uncommon
Appearance: A violet quill pen with a sharp silver tip on which are three Amiqui glyphs: one for steadfastness, one for courage, and one for truth
This pen, always sharp, produces its own unending supply of silver ink. It is popular with Amiqui wizards for their spellbooks, and is also used by some street artists for tattoos. There are three glyphs on the pen, and when one of those glyphs is marked onto a person, any voluntary oath that is taken associated with that glyph is binding.
While following their oath, player-characters have advantage on any associated skill rolls three times per day.
Oathbreaking will result in the glyph turning black and becoming very painful and cold to the touch, until the person with the glyph either returns to keeping the oath or goes to a shrine of Camazoth and goes through the Oathbreakers’ Rite, which lasts one week and is physically and mentally demanding, resulting in the permanent loss of 1 point in either Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution. The tattoo of someone who has broken the oath remains black and stays on the skin, even after the pain is removed through the Oathbreakers’ Rite. The tattoo of a someone who has fulfilled the conditions of their oath turns gold and remains on the skin, as well.
