Bloody Mercy Crystal[edit]

Used by interrogators who want to scare suspects into confessions without actually killing them, or by those who don't want to let on that they're only dealing non-lethal damage, a Bloody Mercy Crystal appears to be every bit as lethal as the weapon normally would. Although it functions as the Merciful Crystal, it causes attacks to deal illusory wounds appropriate to the weapon being used. Victims knocked unconscious by a weapon with this crystal appear to be dead unless a DC 15 Heal check is made. The illusion lasts for 10 minutes.

If using a weapon with this crystal to attempt a coup de grace against a helpless opponent, the normal Fortitude save becomes a Will save against the illusion. On a failed save, the opponent becomes unconscious regardless of current HP, and on a successful save, the opponent takes only half damage from the attempt, and is immune to the illusion effect of this crystal for 24 hours.

Faint illusion; CL 5th; Craft Magical Arms and Armor, cure light wounds, silent image; Price: 200 gold.
