Beyond The Shore
Value: 4s 6d
The Liar’s Broom is just simple brush made from animal hair and a beaded cord. It radiates a very faint aura of enchantment magic.
As a full-round action, the user can brush a circle in the dust around them. Once drawn, this circle will act as a magic circle, save that it will hedge out not only summoned creatures, but any creatures able to understand the user’s language.
Anything that understands stories can be kept at bay outside that circle for as long as the user can tell one. The story must be about the creature (or creatures) held at bay and starts with the teller saying “I know a story and it’s got you in it. Listen and be still.” All creatures, great and evil will wait outside the circle to see how the story goes (every full minute that a player can actually keep spinning a story = 1 round in the game).
At the end of the story the the teller can make the listener leave by saying “Now you go away”. The listener must make a Will save (DC 10 + 1 per round the story lasted), or immediately leave (as if affected by a suggestion spell.
Some say that practiced tellers can even make things happen. After a story the teller can say “And that’s nothing. Listen to what happens next” and then proceed to lay out what the listener will do. This also acts as a suggestion (save DC as above).
