In a magical world where the swearing of oaths takes on a greater significance than the mere given word of an honourable man, it is likely that magic items connected with oaths would be created. In this work, several such items are described in considerable detail, sufficient for you to pick them up and use them in your game with little need for further work except to meld them more closely into your own plotline. This assumes your game is set within the world of Monte Cook's Arcana Evolved, you might need to change some things if your game is set somewhere else.

Each item is in some way connected to oath-taking, and they range from mildy interesting to very useful, powerful or downright scary. There's an earring which can tell you the last oath sworn by whoever you are talking to, for example, and a stone which operates as a kind of death pact: if a member of a group who have sworn an oath over it is dying the rest of the group is summoned to his location. An interesting one is a scroll that acts as a kind of magical Most Wanted list, continuously updated as notorious criminals are brought to book (or someone commits an even more heinous crime!).

All are well presented in a practical and useful manner, and serve to enhance the specific flavour of the Arcana Evolved setting by working directly with it. Many of the items can either be woven into your existing adventures, or may even spawn a plotline of their own when you study them.
