Assassin’s Band

Wondrous item, uncommon (requires attunement)

When activated, this mesh vest creates a sonic field that surrounds the wearer. If used underwater, the field keeps a sheath of water two inches thick encapsulating the wearer if they leave the water. The sheath of water around the wearer allows them to breathe water, even when on land. After an hour, the water surrounding the wearer is depleted of oxygen, and no longer allows a water breather to breathe.

The wearer must submerge in a body of water large enough for them to fit, and re-active the water sheath to allow another hour of breathable water to allow them to breath in air.

The water also acts as a cushioning armor, blunting the force of blows, and protecting the wearer.

While the sheath is active above water, it reduces nonmagical piercing damage by 2 points. Once the sheath has reduced 10 points of damage this way, the integrity of the field is disrupted, and the water splashes to the ground. This overloads the device, which cannot be activated again for 10 minutes.

While water sheaths can use batteries, they are most often used by creatures which have the capacity to generate sonic energy naturally. When used by a creature who can deal thunder damage, the relevant ability can power the sonic grip for 1 hour per use of the ability.

Assassin’s Band

Wondrous item, uncommon

This intricate, crystalline bracelet portrays excellent craftsmanship with a hinge and clasp to snap over the wrist. The bracelet has 3 charges. As an action, you can expend 1 charge to cause the bracelet to form either a light melee weapon of your choice or a shield, crafted of force. If you aren’t proficient in shields, you are considered proficient with the shield created by the latter effect, while the former functions as a magic weapon of the type chosen. Neither the shield nor the weapon can be disarmed, stolen, or damaged, but they are vulnerable to spells and effects which affect force, such as disintegrate. Either effect lasts for 1 minute.

Once created, the object remains in its chosen form and cannot be changed, though you can deactivate the assassin’s band as an action and reactivate it on a subsequent turn to produce a different form.

The bracelet regains 1d3 spent charges daily at dawn.
