The Unnamed Saga
Battle Standard of Healing
Level 3 Wondrous Item (680gp)
“This red flag and standard is emblazoned with sigils of healing that restore the vitality of you and your allies.”
Power (Encounter – Healing, Zone): Standard Action. When you plant the battle standard in your space or an adjacent square, it creates a zone of healing energy in a close burst 5. Whenever you or an ally spends a healing surge while in the zone, you and all allies in the zone regain 1 hit point. This effect lasts until the end of the encounter or until the battle standard is removed from the ground. Any character in or adjacent to a battle standard’s square can remove it from the ground as a standard action.
This magical Battle Standard of Healing was crafted out of the defiled tunic of a defeated cleric of Athola. The banner depicts the alien demon-god Athola’s holy symbol, only now Athola’s iconic three claw marks are depicted as subservient and defeated by a roiling, burning insurgency rising to overcome the Athola forces. This rising championship of fire embodies a hybrid image, depicting a roaring lion, the king of nature, while simultaneously paying homage to the blazing sun symbol of Pelor, God of the Sun. The item was commissioned for the adventurers by the high wizard Amcathra.
