Thor's Day: Aegis for D&D 5th Edition


Shield, artifact (requires attunement)

You gain a +3 bonus to your armor class and Dexterity saving throws when wielding this

magic shield.

In addition, while attuned to the shield, if you are subjected to an effect that allows you to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, you can use your reaction to take no damage if you succeed on the saving throw, interposing Aegis between yourself and the source of the effect.  

Finally, as an action one per day, you can force a creature that is within 10 feet of Aegis to make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw.  A creature that fails the save begins to turn to stone and is restrained . The restrained creature must repeat the saving throw at the end of its next turn, becoming petrified on a failure or ending the effect on a success. The petrification lasts until the creature is freed by the greater restoration spell or other magic. 

"Aegis was made for Zeus by Hephaestus and the Cyclopes, it is made of gold and has a carving of the medusa in it's center."
