Heart of Vecna
The heart of Vecna is from Vecna’s original body. Tough and leathery, it resembles a large heart-shaped hunk of jerky. The heart radiates powerful magic that cannot be analyzed directly. Moreso than the other relics noted herein, removal of a potential recipient’s heart is a deadly serious operation, and it most likely kills the recipient. If compatriots complete the operation by placing the heart of Vecna in the recipient’s chest cavity, it resurrects the recipient (although to begin with, the recipient begins with only 1 hit point), and from that time forward functions as a normal heart, although a recipient’s chest bears horrible scar tissue that never heals.
Constant Powers: Spell Resistance 15; Power Resistance 15
The heart continually allows a living wearer to heal 1 point of damage per round and an equal amount of nonlethal damage. In addition, the host is immune to bleed damage. If a limb, an organ, or any other body part is lost, it regenerates as the spell regenerate.
Invoked Powers: The recipient can make a touch attack, targeting a foe’s chest. If hit, the recipient must succeed at a Fort Save (DC 20) or die of a heart attack. The recipient can trigger this effect only once per month.
Curse: Every month of attachment, the recipient must make a Will Save (DC 25). On a failed save, the recipient temporarily (4d4+4 hours) acts as if charmed by Vecna and acts according to that powers desires, if applicable.
Destruction: Any force, natural or magical, that can inflict 50 points of damage from a single blow, spell, or effect is sufficient to destroy the first digit. In addition, someone using the molars of Vecna can destroy the relic.
