Curse : Initial investigation makes one convinced Lifebleeder is a Ring of Regeneration. Upon donning the ring, it is revealed to be cursed, and cannot be removed short of dismemberment, or a Remove Curse (3rd Level Abjuration) spell. The platinum and ruby dust rune changes shape into a leering demonic skull, bleeding tears of crimson.

While wearing this ring, the wearer loses d6 HP every 10 minutes, provided they have at least a single HP. Body parts cannot be regenerated during this time.

Bio:

Created as a trap for the unwary looter of Blackmaw the Night Hag’s treasures, Lifebleeder is a finely crafted ring that appeals to the greedy. It is meant to bedevil anyone who dares steal from her.

For a time, it was unfortunately claimed by Dame Kahli of Whiterock, but she stilled the curse by removing her left-hand ring finger, and abandoning the ring. Upon later exploration of the burial site, it had been dug up and is assumed to have been reclaimed by Blackmaw once more.
