The "Leader" characterOne player, who is elected by their peers, has certain advantages that other players do not have.
Also, it should be mentioned that when the leader is at negative hit points or dead, the remainder of the party is shaken (-2 on almost everything).
There is only one limitation on the leader character. The leader can't create a character that would allow him/her to cast 7th level spells. I don't want any Fingers of Death being pointed...
The aforementioned magic item is a:
Amulet of InformationThis amulet allows the wearer to constantly benefit from spells "Status" and "Rary's Telepathic Bond" with up to the last four willing allies to touch it, aside from the wearer. Furthermore, those four allies also gain the benefits of "Status" with the each other and the wearer. Additionally, as a standard action, the wearer can focus the amulet's energy on any target within line of sight and know the target's alignment, any and all classes, race, current hit points, levels, any magical effects currently affecting the target, and any spells the target has prepared, if they are a spellcaster. This amulet can only be used by someone who has worn it for one day. If the wearer dies, or the amulet is removed, the spell effects wear off after one hour.
