Signet of the Life Pharaoh

Ring, legendary (requires attunement by a creature of good alignment)

This ring of protection was formerly worn by a longdeceased noble called the Life Pharaoh. The pharaoh was slain in a bloody coup, but a sliver of his essence managed to cheat death and endure within the ring. It has the following properties: Pharaoh’s Blessing. The wearer can use an action to invoke the aid of the ring, healing 9 (1d8+5) hit points three times per day. When you use this ability to heal a goodaligned creature, that creature gains a +2 bonus on attack rolls, ability checks, and saving throws for 1 round.

Forestall Demise. Once per week, the spirit of the Life Pharaoh can forestall the death of the wearer. Anytime the wearer would fail her third death save, or die from being at 0 hit points and taking damage in excess of her maximum hit points, the ring heals her for 32 (5d8+10) hit points. If this prevents the wearer’s death, her head is surrounded by a beatific halo for up to 1 hour, shedding light as a light spell and enabling her to gain a +4 bonus on a single Wisdom or Charisma check. Once this bonus is used, the halo disappears and the signet of the Life Pharaoh cannot use any of its healing abilities for one week.

Sentience. The signet of the Life Pharaoh is a sentient lawful good ring with an Intelligence of 14, a Wisdom of 10, and a Charisma of 18. It has hearing and normal vision out to a range of 30 feet. The ring can speak, read, and understand Common, ancient Egyptian, and Celestial, and can communicate with its wearer telepathically. While it is attuned to a wearer, the signet of the Life Pharaoh also understands every language she knows.

Personality. The Life Pharaoh was a beneficent and just ruler.

He held the favor of his people due to his good judgment and care for his subjects. The pharaoh’s intellect seeks to protect wearers with high scruples and strong character.
