You've passed the first test and are now an Initiate of Cavadar. However, this is only the first step on your journey. Your next task is to combine all five Rings of the Circle. This is an arduous quest that takes years to complete. Near the end of your Rings of the Circle quest, you'll travel to a strange land where you'll meet up with other initiates. Together you'll face even greater challenges. If you survive, much merriment shall be had in the tavern with you and your fellow initiates.

To mark your progression, you have earned the title "Ring Initiate" and can access a new power with the same name. Details are shown below.

Tier 8 Psychic Power: Ring Initiate
Once per adventure as a Free Action, you may swap out one ring you're currently wearing and replace it with another you possess. However, there are some restrictions:
  • Neither swapped ring can affect stats recorded on the party card.
  • Neither ring can affect your max HP.
  • Neither ring can be part of a set--whether or not the set bonus affects the party card.
  • The swapped rings must have different names.
  • Neither ring can affect the number of items you can equip in any slot.
These are some examples of legitimate swaps:
  • Ring of Fire Resistance & Ring of Frost Resistance
  • Ray's Ring of Remembrance & Ring of Dire Warning
  • Ring of Direction & Ring of Direct Insults
  • Ring of the Deep & Ring of the Eye
  • Ring of Soothing Touch & Ring of Feather Fall
Note: The ring swap does not allow you to retcon anything. E.g., if you just took 20 points of damage from an incorrect guess on a puzzle, swapping in Ray's Ring of Remembrance does not reduce the damage you just took to 10.

These are some examples of illegitimate swaps:
  • Ring of the 4th Circle (in or out, it affects max HP)
  • A spent Ring of the Ram for a fresh Ring of the Ram (can't have same name)
  • Feedback Loop & Greater Holly Ring (FL may not affect the party card, but GHR does)
This power is usable by all Skull of Cavadar users, whether or not they attended Skull Con.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?

Nifty! But I think Ring of the Eye should not be used as an example (twice) since surprise immunity is on the party card

Yes, my AC is lower than the Wizard's. No regrets!

That is an amazing ability! Very much looking forward to coming up with creative uses.

Great catch, thank you!

If I had enough Eldritch pieces to get max eldritch bonus lvl, could I saw the SRoEC for let’s say…. Rolland’s L or because Rolland’s adds AC and the ring gives dmg bonus are not eligible due to card stats changes ?

SRoEC is part of a set, it can't be swapped.

Rollands affects party card stats, it can't be swapped.

Cool!

This might cause Wish Rings to be a bit more usable.

Am I correct in assuming the swap does not allow you otherwise illegal configurations?

For example, if you are wearing the Charm of Spell Storing, you can't equip the Ring of Spell Storing at the start of the adventure. I am assuming you also can not swap in a Ring of Spell Storing using this power?

Potential great targets for this:

Ray's Ring of Remembrance
Ring of Direction (immune to Confusion and Maze)
Ring of Evasion / Ring of Improved Evasion
Ring of Expertise (after final use)
Ring of Pandemonium (immune to Confusion, Disintegrate, and Maze)
Ring of Quick Blessing (after relevant spells are exhausted)
Ring of Spell Storing
Ring of Soulsight
Ring of Sure Wit
Ring of the Deep
Ring of Wonder (maybe)

Druegar,
This seems like a direct connection between the 1k purchase multi-year transmutes...
Can you confirm that the only connection between the skull of cavadar and the ring of 5 circles is for story purposes?
I just want to make sure that people who acquire the rings without having a skull aren't going to miss out on some combo bonus? It will just be like missing VTD1 and starting with VTD2?
this is not a signature.
