So this comes from one of the keeper titles that I came up with
Last Lantern before the Black Gate.
This small lantern is made of a black matte metal. It is about the size of an apple. Usually found carried on a chain to be worn as a large amulet or from a belt. It is a tiny hooded lantern. Decorated on it is spiraling words almost too small to make out “A light to find your way from the black gate”. These words are written in all the languages of all the beings that have writing. (Spending a lot of time you might be able to find it in your language)
When lit is doesn’t give any light. When held aloft and the word spoken it is lit for a brief moment with a blazing white light. The flame then implodes into the lantern and seems to suck away all light around the lantern. this light shine instead lights the path to the black gate. Any creature who holds it is instantly taken to the black gate and last breath.
I can’t figure out if the bearer should be able to reroll a last breath roll or get +1.
I am thinking reroll. I see this being used when a character is almost dead. So they decide to meet death on their terms. They fictional trigger means you have to
Know the words
Know how to use it
Be able to speak
And be strong enough to hold it alof, but for just the briefest of time.
Help me make this better or give me your opinion on it?
