This medallion appears to be a silver disc etched with an rune in the shape of a seven-pointed star (the Sihedron Rune of ancient Thassilon). The medallion grants a +1 resistance bonus to all saving throws. Additionally, the wearer can use the medallion to activate a false life effect once per day (gaining 1d10+5 temporary hit points). Finally, when placed around the neck of a dead body, it prevents decomposition as a gentle repose spell.
Requirements: Craft Wondrous Item, false life, gentle repose, resistance.
The Sandpoint Heroes have encountered several of these items, all being worn by enemies who were defeated in combat.
The evil aasimar priestess Nualia Tobyn was wearing a Sihedron Medallion when she was killed by the Sandpoint Heroes on 16 Rova 4707.
Status: Claimed by Larissa the Swift, who later used it as her bonded object when she became a wizard.
A fourth identical medallion was recovered from the stone giant wizard Barl Breakbones on 12 Kuthona 4070.
A fifth gargantuan-sized but otherwise identical medallion was found around the neck of a 30-foot-tall giant statue at the entrance of Kreeg Clanhold; investigation revealed that the statue was actually a dessicated corpse of a gargantual giant, preserved by the medallion itself.
