Wondrous item, rare (requires attunement)
This small, smooth stone is about the size of a walnut with intricate, swirling patterns on its surface that seem to shift as if alive. When held, the stone feels warm to the touch and pulses with a gentle, healing energy. While attuned to the Slànachaidh stone, you gain the following benefits:
- You have resistance to disease.
- You can use an action to touch a creature and restore a number of hit points equal to 2d6 + your Wisdom modifier (minimum of 1 hit point). Once you use this feature, you cannot use it again until you finish a long rest.
- When you use a spell or ability to restore hit points to a creature, you can choose to increase the amount of hit points restored by 1d6. Once you use this feature, you cannot use it again until you finish a short or long rest.
In addition, the Slànachaidh has 3 charges. As an action, you can expend 1 charge to cast the Cure Wounds spell (1st level) on yourself or on a creature you touch. You can also expend 2 charges to cast the Lesser Restoration spell on a creature you touch. The Slànachaidh regains all expended charges each day at dawn.
Adventure Hook. The village of Stonehaven holds an ancient statue of a gnoll god and a secret relic, the Slànachaidh, which the druids use to heal the sick and wounded. Protect the peaceful Druid village from the attack of the vicious Gnoll Pack Lord Otal and his warband, the Rabid Ravagers. The gnolls covet the artifact for their own purposes, and the druids need the adventurers’ help to keep it safe.
