Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Pathfinder Unchained (OGL)

Magic Items Unchained

We’ve all been there. We’ve faced the sad crossroads when we realized that our favorite magic item just wasn’t cutting it, and we couldn’t justify keeping it instead of equipping the new and shinier item the party just found instead. But what about the blacksmith who becomes a hero fighting with her father’s sword? Or the halfling who found a strange item early in his career that turned out to be more than it seemed? That’s where the scaling magic items from Pathfinder Unchained come in. These items scale as you level, allowing them to be an important part of your character (these sorts of items are called wonders) or a small and handy tool throughout your career (these are called baubles) or something in between. The math is all worked out to allow GMs to use a few different systems for the advancement, including automatic advancement (in which case, it’s recommended to dole out less treasure if you want to keep the party at about the same power level) or advancement using rituals and gold (the easier method for someone running a published adventure). Scaling items have starting and ending levels for scaling, so I’ve included two of the most wondrous of the wonders: wonders that scale all the way up to 20th level!
