Clay Tablets of Aneapta
These small stone clay tablets are rectangular in shape, with one end rounded.
In the center of the tablet front is a primitive shape: a circle, square, or
equilateral triangle. Radiating from the imprinted shape is arcane lettering.
A clay tablet can be activated, once, by an act of
will. They remain active for as long as their position is undisturbed.
Thereafter, any affect (magical or mundane) which that tablet targets is
suppressed while within 20 feet. If the tablet is ever moved after it has been
activated then its magical effect immediately ends.
Circle: Suppresses all darkness within its
area of effect. Both magical and mundane darkness are suppressed. Creatures can
clearly anything within the area of effect, regardless of whether they are
within or outside of the area. Prevailing conditions persist (sunlight) when
available, or if positioned in complete darkness then the area of effect is
strangely "illuminated" by a lack of darkness, which causes colors to appear
half-toned and subdued.
Triangle: Suppresses all sensation of cold
and the harmful effects of cold within its area of effect, magical or mundane.
Individual creatures are not actually warmed up; thus
could easily survive within the area of effect. They feel neither warmed nor
Square: Suppresses all illusions which
are brought within the area of effect. The area of effect cleanly intersects
large illusions which are not entirely within the area of effect, causing them
to appear as though part of the illusion were mission.
