Oyster of Ricochets
Aura faint conjuration; CL 9th
Slot -; Price 5,000 gp; Weight 1lb
This oyster-shaped wooden box produces a ricochet (very dense and rubbery pearl about 3 inches in diameter) per day. Once thrown, a ricochet travels 100 ft in a straight line. If there are any small-sized or smaller targets in its trajectory they are knocked prone and take 2d4 nonlethal damage (DC 14, Ref negates both). If there is a wall or a medium-sized or larger target it deals 1d6 nonlethal damage (DC 16, Ref negates) and bounces in a random direction. Roll a dice to determine the direction that the ricochet go excluding the ones that the target grants cover. The ricochet continues its trajectory in a straight line until it bounces again or all its movement is over, when it simply vanishes. The attacker may try to control the bounces with a dexterity check: DC 14 allows you to control the first bounce and each +2 over that threshold grants you control of one subsequent bounce. The oyster does not produces another ricochet if one is still inside it. A ricochet dissolves after 9 hours outside of its oyster.
