Gem Socketing

How to enhance your weapons

A new concept using enchanted gems to increase the power of your weapons and armor, a gem can be socketed into your items, and then taken out again to fine-tune your own personal gear. The items being socketed must be able to receive the gems, so special consideration must be made to build them correctly.

Created with the original Akashic Sensitive Prestige class as a power and ability source, these gems are enchanted either by magic, or through communion with the Universe. Sensitive people are able to distinguish between normal gems and those that are transfigured correctly enough to receive the enchantment.

Just like any other enchanted object, it takes the same amount of time bestowing it with magic as it would any other item. Through a combination of specific gems and the ability to "socket" items, a player is able to put these gems into their gear to give them the gem's powers. Many of the gems are specifically keyed to certain abilities and spells, which are naturally unlocked as well through communion with the Universe.

If a player wants to remove the gems from their gear, they can do so freely or at the discretion of the DM. Sometimes, gems bond with the items they are socketed to, and may break down after being separated from them. A character must be trained in the Jewelry profession, roll a Sleight of Hand check and consult this table if a gem is removed.

1d20 Results
1 Gem explodes, dealing 2d10 damage
2-5 Gem shatters and is unusable
6-10 Gem is splintered, lowering in rarity one level
11-15 Gem is okay, but socket is destroyed
16+ Gem is removed fine

Creating Magic Gems

Creating these powerful gems is the same as creating a magic item of the same cost. The prices listed in the tables at the end of this description is the cost of the gem, and the cost of the enchantment. If a player wants to naturally create these gems for their own purposes and they did not have to pay for the gem, divide the cost of the listed gems by five. That will provide the enchantment cost required to make them magic. The gems used for these enchantments though are considered "masterwork" quality gems, so your DM may increase the basic cost required to find a "perfect" quality gem that is also open to modification.

Another way to create these gems is to meditate with them, as the Akashic Sensitive Prestige Class does. Through meditation and manipulation on the molecular level, an Akashic Sensitive can unlock the powers of gems over the same amount of time it would take to enchant them.

Specific Gear

Weapons and armor must be of the masterwork quality before it can be socketed. The power of the gem flows through the gear and lesser quality gear will cause them to malfunction. The better the quality of the gear, the more likely numerous sockets can be applied.

Masterwork quality gear can cost 10 times as much as normal gear, but socketed gear can also cost at least that much, if not more. The item has to be prepared to act as a conduit for the power of the gem, therefore requires the services of the creator and an enchanter.

Any more than one gem in proximity to another outside of being socketed can cause Wild Magic effects (ie, two amulets worn at the same time). so caution should be made when possessing two enchanted gems at the same time within close proximity to each other.

Any item that possesses two or more sockets in it and has active gems working in both sockets must be attuned to before the powers of the gems can be used. Additionally, any gem of very rare, legendary or artifact status must be attuned to as well. If two very rare gems are placed in one item, the singular attunement suffices for both gems.

The socket size and cost for items is as follows:

Item Size and Cost
Item Size 1 Socket 2 Sockets 3 Sockets
Tiny (Ring) x10 N/A N/A
Small (Dagger) X10 X20 N/A
Medium (Sword) X10 X20 X25
Large (Armor) X10 X15 X20

Legacy gear

As opposed to finding new gear and replacing the old, this gives players the opportunity to keep their weapons and just have them re-socketed with newer gems that they find in their adventures. That way, the same sword goes through the player's entire lifetime, becoming part of the legacy of the game. The same goes for armor and other items.

Gem details

The following lists of gems were compiled both from the Dungeon Master's Guide, as well as from Crystal and Gem books. The gems and crystals were reviewed and compared in our world to what spells might come out of them in D&D. If you are familiar with a gemstone that you believe should exhibit certain properties, then by all means, allow that gemstone to have that power.

The list shows the name of the gem, the color denotes what color the gem can be and the power shows what tuned gems normally produce when made magical. If you would rather just use this list as a more detailed for specific kinds of gems, please do so. Again, the prices listed include the enchantment plus the rarity, so if you plan on making these just normal gem rewards, reduce the selling price of these to match the normal rarity of the same type of gem.

New Spells (from Akashic Sensitive Prestige class)

Akashic Immunity

1st-level enchantment

  • Casting Time: 1 reaction
  • Range: Self
  • Components: None
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You can create a barrier between you and another player casting spells at you. For every spell slot used in this way, you can re-direct 1d10 points of damage, plus your Intelligence modifier plus your spellcasting level.

If you reduce the damage to 0, you can spend an additional 1 spell slot to redirect the attack back at the attacker. You make this attack with proficiency, regardless of whether you know the spell or not.

At Higher Levels. As noted above, when the spell is cast as a reaction, the player must choose the number of spell slots they wish to dedicate to the spell. For every spell slot above first, increase the damage redirected by 1d10.

Bigby's Clenched Fist

2nd-level evocation

  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 120 feet
  • Components: S
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You create a Large invisible hand of force in an unoccupied space that you can see within range. The hand lasts for the spell's duration, and it moves at your command, mimicking the movements of your own hand.

The hand doesn't fill its space. When you cast the spell and as a bonus action on your subsequent turns, you can move the hand up to 60 feet and then cause the hand to strike one creature or object within 5 feet of it. Make a melee spell attack for the hand using your game statistics. On a hit, the target takes 2d8 force damage.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, the damage done to the target increases by 1d8 for each slot level about 2nd.

Bigby's Forceful Hand

2nd-level evocation

  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 120 feet
  • Components: S
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You create a Large invisible hand of force in an unoccupied space that you can see within range. The hand lasts for the spell’s duration, and it moves at your command, mimicking the movements of your own hand. The hand has a Strength of 20 (+5) and doesn’t fill its space.

When you cast the spell and as a bonus action on your subsequent turns, you can move the hand up to 60 feet and then cause the hand to push or pull a creature within 5 feet of it in a direction you choose. Make a check with the hand’s Strength contested by the Strength (Athletics) check of the target. If the target is Medium or smaller, you have advantage on the check. If you succeed, the hand pushes or pulls the target up to 5 feet plus a number of feet equal to three times your spellcasting ability modifier. The hand moves with the target to remain within 5 feet of it.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, the strength of the hand increases by 2 for each slot level about 2nd.

Bigby's Grasping Hand

2nd-level evocation

  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 120 feet
  • Components: S
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You create a Large invisible hand of force in an unoccupied space that you can see within range. The hand lasts for the spell’s duration, and it moves at your command, mimicking the movements of your own hand. The hand has a Strength of 20 (+5) and doesn’t fill its space.

When you cast the spell and as a bonus action on your subsequent turns, you can move the hand up to 60 feet and then cause the hand to grapple a Large or smaller creature within 5 feet of it. You use the hand’s Strength score to resolve the grapple.

If the target is Medium or smaller, you have advantage on the check. While the hand is grappling the target, you can use a bonus action to have the hand crush it. When you do so, the target takes bludgeoning damage equal to 2d6 + your spellcasting ability modifier.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, the strength of the hand increases by 2 and the damage done to the target increases by 1d6 for each slot level about 2nd.

Bigby's Interposing Hand

2nd-level evocation

  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 120 feet
  • Components: S
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You create a Large invisible hand of force in an unoccupied space that you can see within range. The hand lasts for the spell’s duration, and it moves at your command, mimicking the movements of your own hand. The hand has a Strength of 20 (+5) and doesn’t fill its space.

When you cast the spell and as a bonus action on your subsequent turns, the hand interposes itself between you and a creature you choose until you give the hand a different command. The hand moves to stay between you and the target, providing you with half cover against the target. The target can move through the hand’s space if its Strength score is less than or equal to the hand’s Strength score, but that space is difficult terrain for the target. If its Strength score is higher than the hand’s Strength score, the target can move through normally.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, the strength of the hand increases by 2 for each slot level about 2nd.

Fist of Unbroken Air

2nd-level evocation

  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 30 feet
  • Components: S
  • Duration: Immediate

You can create a blast of compressed air that strikes like a mighty fist. As an action, you can choose a creature within 30 feet of you. That creature must make a Strength saving throw. On a failed save, the creature takes 3d10 bludgeoning damage and you can push the creature up to 20 feet away from you and knock it prone. On a successful save, the creature takes half as much damage, and you don’t push it or knock it prone.

Mage Hand (Modified)

1st-level Conjuration

  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 120 feet
  • Components: None
  • Duration: 1 minute

An invisible, floating hand appears at a point you choose within range. The hand lasts for the duration or until you dismiss it as an action. You can have your proficiency modifier in hands present at any time.

You can use your action to control the hands. You can use the hands to manipulate an object, open an unlocked door or container, stow or retrieve an item from an open container, or pour the contents out of a vial. You can move the hand up to 30 feet each time you use it.

The hand can’t attack, activate magic items, or carry more than 10 pounds per level , per hand. For example, a 3rd level user who casts this spell can create three mage hands that can manipulate up to 10 pounds per hand, or 30 pounds all together.
