Necromantic Crown

Wondrous item, rare (requires attunement by a cleric)

This simple circlet of golden snakes provides an evil cleric with the ability to command twice the normal number of undead using their channel divinity, or doubles the number created and controlled when the cleric casts animate dead. The crown also bestows the ability to create undead as per the spell once per week as though using a 9th-level spell slot. Anyone wearing the Crown for more than an hour must make a weekly Wisdom save (DC 20) or lose a point of Constitution. Upon reaching zero constitution the character is completely transformed into a ghoul. Any neutral character who wears this crown must succeed at a DC 20 Wisdom saving throw every round or suffer 4 (1d8) points of necrotic damage. Any good character who wears this crown must succeed at a DC 20 Wisdom saving throw every round or suffer 8 (2d8) points of necrotic damage. If a good or neutral character dies while wearing the crown, they are completely transformed into a shadow.
