The Savage Tides
All books the party finds.
All books which grant a special bonus require a day to read, study, or atttune to said character until otherwise stated.
- Dream Journal of the Pallid Seer
This battered, leather-bound book looks like an aged and heavily worn notebook. Anyone reading the journal for an hour or more has strange dreams the following night, the details of which he cannot remember. The following day the character is fatigued. Reading the journal for a total of 24 hours or more causes the reader to have a prophetic dream wherein he sees his own death — though, as before, he cannot remember the details. If a character who has had this vision comes near death at any point afterward, at the moment he is about to die he may reroll any failed saving throw made within the last round or force an opponent to reroll a killing attack. The character must accept the result of the second roll, regardless of its outcome.
Only one character may see the signs and connections in such a prophetic book at one time, thus only one character may gain the benefits contained therein the texts. Others may read the journal and be troubled by the following dreams but will gain no benifit. Once a character has had the opportunity to avert death, regardless of its success or failure, the journal provides no more benefit and never aids the character again.
- Preklikin’s Book of Cults
This strange leather-bound book contains erratic handwriting of a frantic scholar and cultist of some renoun; the words within it appear to have been translated from Gnome into Common (and perhaps some other language before Gnome). It contains notations of strange cult practices, disturbing rants about ancient near omnipotent beings, and confusing diagrams resembling summoning circles, with many parts crossed out or obliterated with ink or fire. You gain a +1 resistance bonus on Will saving throws while carrying the book.
If you worship Dagon or aspects of Yugoloth religion, you may hold the book in one hand to use it as a lesser extend metamagic rod but only for conjuration spells that summon or call an evil outsider.
