The Strange, Mystical, and Magical DCCified Ioun Stones!

Yesterday someone suggested that a DCC fan get off their ass and create a DCCified version of the Ioun stones…  and I figured it’d be a fun thing to do (whether they are good or not is an entirely different matter.

Also Claytonian JP shared this AWESOME epic list of Ioun Stones (mostly from 1e D&D).   Seriously…  600 of these bad boys in here!

I converted 16 of them from the d20 SRD, but the rest are stuff I created and also took some inspiration for the epic list mentioned above.

Here’s a PDF version: Ioun Stones for DCC

Ioun Stones
 These crystalline stones always float in the air and must be within 3 feet of their owner to be of any use. When a character first acquires a stone, she must hold it and then release it, whereupon it takes up a circling orbit 1d3 feet from her head. Thereafter, a stone must be grasped or netted to separate it from its owner. The owner may voluntarily seize and stow a stone (to keep it safe while she is sleeping, for example), but she loses the benefits of the stone during that time. (This description taken from d20 SRD).

Ioun stones have AC 20, 10 hit points, and are treated as a hard metal.  They are not subject to saves, and are always considered to have succeeded.
