Aura Faint evocation; CL 5th
Slot —; Price 500 gp
This small magical device is patterned off ancient relics of the Giants of Xen'Drik. Wayfinders are typically made from silver with gold accents, and function as compasses. Each bears four simple glyphs on its face, one for each of the cardinal directions, along with a spinning pointer that always points north, granting its user a +2 circumstance bonus on Survival checks to avoid becoming lost in the wilderness.
In addition, all wayfinders include a small indentation designed to hold an ioun stone. While still granting the bearer their normal benefits, stones slotted in this manner frequently reveal entirely new powers due to the magic of the wayfinder itself. When no stone is in place, a wayfinder can be commanded to emit light as a standard action, as per the spell.
Wayfinders are standard equipment given out to trusted field agents in The Wayfinder Foundation.
