Or of the DaRkmoon

Description: An iridescent blue stone sits nestled in a round silver amulet. The heavy silver chain seems tarnished, and no amount of polishing brightens it. Though beautiful, the swirling depths of the blue stone carry a hint of menace.

Powers: An orb of the darkmoon grants its wearer a +4 enhancement bonus to Stamina and a +2 enhancement bonus to Spirit. In addition, if a spell that cures or deals damage is cast on the wearer, the amount of damage it deals or cures increases by +1 point per caster level (maximum 15 points). The powers of the amulet seem tied to the moon, though; when the moon wanes, this power reverses, and the wearer receives -1 fewer point of healing or damage per die (to a minimum of 1 point per die). (The moon waxes for 2 weeks, then wanes for 2 weeks.)

Rumor has it that, during full moons and new moons, truly odd things happen to the wearer of an orb of the darkmoon. A goblin tinker once claimed that a frost nova spell, cast during a full moon by an enemy mage, exploded harmlessly around him and then reformed into an icy elemental that ran off into the woods. A Forsaken priest whispered, in horrified tones all the more horrifying coming from the walking dead, that a cure light wounds spell cast on her beneath a new moon caused the Scarlet Crusader she faced to disappear utterly. Likely these are just rumors, though.
