Coin of Persuasion

Description: The Coin of Persuasion appears to be a
bright, silver coin, though it is
really made of white gold. It has a
symbol of an eye on one side and a
triangle on the other side.
History: It's origins are unknown, but it
appears to have been coined and minted
in the Kingdom of Blodehelm, though it
may have come from as far as
Silvanesti, or even Mithas. No one
How it Works: The Coin of Persuasion can be used by
anyone, regardless of race or ability
in magic. The user must have the
triangle side facing the victim of
persuasion and then flip the coin
immediately over to the side with the
eye. The victim of persuasion may or
may not go into a trance, it depends on
his or her magical resistance. The
person will now be susceptible to
suggestions or "persuasions". For
example, the user could "persuade" the
victim to dance on one leg while crying
like a chicken, or he could "persuade"
the person to assassinate a king or
some other high authority figure. Then
the victim will awake and have no
recollection of the "persuasion"
trance. The victim will then have to
carry out the "persuasion" unless the
coin happens to be "borrowed" from
possession of the user who "persuaded"
the victim in the first place...
