Carpet of Desert Fire

Wondrous item, very rare (requires attunement)

This woven mat of golden silk is 5 feet square and embroidered with patterns of flame in glittering orange and scarlet. Crafted by ancient elementalists with a fetish for fire, a carpet of desert fire also serves as a prayer mat for cultists of fiery elemental entities and other devotees of the flame. A carpet of desert fire contains 50 charges when created, and as it is used the fiery patterns embroidered in it become sooty and blackened. When its last charge is expended, it crumbles to ash.

While sitting or kneeling on the carpet, the user gains fire resistance and can converse with any creature any creature native to the Elemental Plane of Fire. If he uses a conjure minor elementals or conjure elemental spell it is treated as if cast from a slot one level higher.

The user of a carpet of desert fire can also use it to observe or enter the Elemental Plane of Fire or make contact with its denizens. By meditating upon the carpet for one hour, the user can expend one charge to ask a question of a fire elemental power as if using contact other plane or can scry (DC 14) upon a creature on the Elemental Plane of Fire. If the user wishes to ask additional questions beyond the first or to continue scrying, he must expend one additional charge for each round after the first. The user can also expend one charge after meditating to send a message to (and receive a reply from) a creature on the Elemental Plane of Fire as if using sending.

Finally, the user can expend five charges to create a gate into the Elemental Plane of Fire. This gate is only 5 feet across and cannot connect to a specific location on the Elemental Plane of Fire (though it can appear within 100 miles of that point). Creatures can move freely into or out of the gate. Keeping this portal open expends two additional charges per round after the first.
