Palladium

Wondrous item, legendary

Triton reared Athena together with his own daughter Pallas. The two girls were playmates, and Athena accidentally killed Pallas during a play-fight. Grief-stricken, Athena made a three cubits high wooden statue in the likeness of Pallas, with the feet joined together, and holding in its right hand a spear, and in the left a distaff and spindle.

Any enemy of Athena who looks upon the palladium directly must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or become blinded for 1 minute. The creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. The palladium senses any creature within 120 miles who intends to harm followers of Athena. At the same time, the palladium creates the effect of a bless spell upon all creatures friendly to Athena in a 20-mile radius. Immediately thereafter, the palladium sends forth a mental alert to these friendly creatures, warning them of possible danger from the unfriendly creature or creatures within the 120-mile radius.
