Magic Item: Densha's Talon Ring

Densha's Talon Ring: This magical ring is carved from moonstone in the shape of a miniature, cable-twisted torc. The end-caps of the "torc" rest where a signet would be, each mounting a tiny, curved feline claw cast from silver.

Three times a day the talon ring may conjure a razor-sharp crescent of translucent force. This force construct can then be directed to attack any target within 50' of the individual wearing the ring, inflicting 1-6 hit points of damage with each attack, or be used to block a single incoming attack (which destroys the construct). A "talon" lasts for 5 rounds, and attacks using the ring-wearer's ranged to-hit.

Though the capricious rogue neu known as Densha claimed to own the only copy of the talon ring, a second ring was subsequently discovered in the depths of a primordial-era dungeon. This ring -- identical to the first -- was contained in a small casket carved from a single pearl which had been sealed with the emblem of a rampant lily-lion, along with a scroll elaborately folded into an ornamental letter packet. The scroll contained the following spell.


Maahes' Claw
Level: 2
Range: 100'
Duration: 1 round per level
Effect: Conjures a curving claw of force

Casting Maahes' claw conjures a razor-sharp crescent "claw" of translucent force. This construct can then be directed to attack any target within range of the spell, using the caster's ranged to-hit and inflicting 1-6 hit points of damage with each attack. Alternatively the claw may be used to block a single incoming attack (which destroys it).

I like this, it's a neat attack and a cool item, I just wish to hell I could stop scheming a tiara version for someone with a talking cat familiar. *cough*
