The Carrion Crown
This rough-hewn stone in the form of a seven-pointed star at first appears a weathered
relic of ancient times, but a close inspection reveals spidery whorls and traceries of
pictographic runes that bend the mind and yet all lead back into the heart of the star.
A creature carrying an elder talisman gains spell resistance of 10 and the effect of a doublestrength protection from evil, though these protections apply only against creatures or
effects with the mythos descriptor.
If the elder talisman is held in both hands, the bearer may detect mythos at will as a standard action.
