Wailing Tome

The hideous faces whose skin forms the binding for this book wail like tortured souls each time it is used.

Level: 5
Price: 1,000 gp
Implement (Tome)
Enhancement: +1 attack rolls and damage rolls
Critical: +1d6 damage
Property: When you use a wizard psychic or teleportation power, you gain a number of temporary hit points equal to the tome’s enhancement bonus. When this occurs, you can instead elect to be dazed until the end of your next turn. If you do so, you gain a number of temporary hit points equal to twice the sum of the tome’s enhancement bonus and your choice of your Charisma, Intelligence, or Wisdom modifier.
Property: This tome contains two wizard daily psychic or teleportation powers. Both powers must be of a level equal to or lower than that of the tome. Choose these powers when you acquire the tome; they cannot be changed later. You can add these powers to your spellbook.

(Daily • Arcane, Implement, Psychic or Teleportation): Free Action. Choose a power contained in this tome and expend an unused wizard daily attack or utility power of an equal or higher level. You gain the use of the chosen power during this encounter. The power is lost if you do not use it before the end of the encounter.
