The Avenan Empire
Talisman of Ultimate Evil
The Talisman of Ultimate Evil is a simple wooden medallion on a woven leather thong. The carving on the wooden medallion is knotwork that appears at first to be deceptively simple. Gazing at the medallion for a prolonged period, however, can have detrimental effects on the psychology of the viewer.
The Talisman enables a cleric of an evil god to cause a chasm to open beneath the feet of a cleric or paladin of a good god, and send the victim plunging to the center of the earth.
Despite its simple construction and apparently mundane materials, attempts to destroy the Talisman have been unsuccessful. It resides, alongside other bizarre or dangerous treasures, in the Forbidden Room of the Anglesey vault.
