How much do scorched ioun stones cost?


Rules Questions

I can find prices for regular, cracked, and flawed ioun stones, but I can't find prices for scorched stones anywhere. Am I missing something obvious, or are they not listed? Certainly you must be able to buy/sell them, right? Thanks in advance!


Scorched does not have a price. Perhaps I would price them as a broken item (50% cost).

I'd say full price. "If someone is looking for 'em, they obviously got a plan for 'em". Besides, it is going to be obnoxious dice rolling every time the ability might or might not come up.

Scorched These stones are depleted somehow, but not so much as to render them completely burned out and powerless; some achieve this state from damaging exposure to extreme heat or electricity. A scorched stone’s power functions erratically (typically a 50% chance per day for constant-effect items, or 50% chance per use for use-activated items) but is essentially the same as an intact stone of the same type. For example, a scorched pearly white spindle ioun stone might give the wearer a 50% chance per 10 minutes to regenerate 1 hit point.

So if I find them in my treasure loot, I can sell them for the same money of normal ioun stones? SWEET!

IF you find someone willing to buy 'em.


Frankthedm, like most damaged items they should be able to be repaired.

Yeah, I was thinking half as well. Even at half, I don't think they'd be worth buying, but I was just wondering. And the prices reflect normal market values, so obviously it's not going to be the same as a regular ioun stone. Thanks for the input everyone!

Well yes, your reply made sense...I was just poking fun at Frank's assertion that they be full market value of the normal stones.
