Party of Scoundrels
As you stare into the large, lustrous black pearl, feral faces can be seen in the swirling vortex of shadows.
A Shadow Pearl serves only one function: to create a Savage Tide. Despite being minor artifacts, these pearls are poor approximations of the original. Yet these lesser pearls are more than enough to serve their purpose.
Approximately 4 inches in diameter, the pearl must be anointed with blood and shattered within 1 minute thereafter.
Once cracked, it sputters and smokes for one minute before exploding into a savage tide.
The original shadow pearl was created thousands of years ago by the Prince of Demons and sent to the Material Plane for his followers to discover and use.
