Ruins of Adventure
Portfolio: Torches and artificial light
Symbol: A torch with a blue flame
Alignment: Neutral (Good)
An exarch in the service of Selune, Aglaos is the petty god of torches and artificial light. He is a friend to adventurers and seekers of the unknown. While generally benevolent, he is a fickle deity and can be easily roused to anger or coaxed to abandon those he supports.
Aglaos is depicted in religious iconography as an empty, coal-colored cloak and cowl. Within the hood of the cowl burn two small flames where eyes should be, but which cast no light on nearby objects, nor on the inside of the cloak.
Aglaos is typically invoked when lighting a torch or lamp, or before entering a dark and unfamiliar place.
|Roll = Score||One torch or lantern born by the supplicant becomes enchanted to burn continually without the need for fuel or air. This is equivalent to a Continual Light spell, save that it also gives off heat as a normal flame, so care must be taken in storing or disposing of the light. If the supplicant has no suitable item, nothing happens.|
|Roll < Score||One torch or lantern born by the supplicant lights easily and burns twice as bright. The object sheds light to double the normal radius for as long as it burns. If the supplicant has no suitable item, nothing happens.|
|Roll > Score||Nothing happens.|
|Natural 20||The supplicant is cursed. All attempts by the supplicant to set objects alight fails for the next 24 hours. This applies to all attempts to start fires, whether lightning a torch, building a campfire, igniting oil, or even invoking magical flame fail. Instantaneous magical fire effects (such as a Fireball) will still function and have their normal effects, but will fail to set flammable materials alight.|
