Reconstructing the Lion in Lapis Lazuli

  • Judge

    To reconstruct the Lion in Lapis Lazuli, you must be a spellcaster with at least two 5th-level spell slots.

    The process also requires spending 3,000 GP on eldritch powders, unguents, and materials that are consumed in the process. If the process must be restarted, these materials must be purchased again. Reconstructing the lion requires dedicating 60 downtime days and the creator must make a DC 15 Arcana (Int) throw at the 15th, 30th, and 45th day. A failure of any of these checks means that you have messed up the process and it must disassemble the lion and start over (failing on the 45th day can be upsetting, to say the least).

    Note: this check should be made in front of a Multiverse DM, preferably me, and tallied.

    If you have an assistant (a spellcaster with at least two 3rd-level spell slots), you may take advantage on these throws. An assistant can be another PC (though they must spend downtime days) or you can hire one in Izuz for 2,500 GP per 15 day segment of research and construction.

    Once reconstructed, the lion obeys its creator. When its creator is on hand to command it, it performs flawlessly. If it is left without instructions or is incapacitated, it continues to follow its last orders to the best of its ability. When it can't fulfill its orders, it might react violently - or stand and do nothing. If the lion has been given conflicting orders sometimes alternates between them. The lion can't think or act for itself. Though it understands its commands perfectly, it has no grasp of language beyond that understanding, and can't be reasoned with or tricked with words.

    The Lion's stats are as follows:
