Ring of Alternate Paths

Ring, legendary (requires attunement)

Mounted in the interwoven basket of a thick trellis silver ring, a sparkling amethyst symbolizes the many possible lives of a hero.

The ring of alternate paths bestows upon you visions of some parallel lifetime.

At the beginning of each day, you swap one ability you possess for another you could have possessed had you chosen differently.

This substitution lasts for 24 hours, and the ability you gain must be a valid choice on the day that you make it. For instance, a cleric could change his domain, but could not swap his domain for a fighting style or sneak attack. If applicable, you may swap a set of abilities, such as a druid’s choice of circle.

The interlacing destinies brought about by the ring of alternate paths disrupt reality’s perception of the wearer, making it harder for others to comprehend her destiny. A creature casting a divination spell that targets the wearer has a 20% chance of spell failure.

If a creature tries to simultaneously wear two rings of alternate paths, the rings interact in paradoxical ways, and both rings permanently lose all their magical properties.
