Trove: 26 New Ioun Stones

Here are some Ioun stone variants from Dragon Magazine #174 that I was waiting on the DMG to come out to convert.  Matthew P. Hargenrager wrote the original article about Ioun stones, and where they come from, as well as some new ones.  I converted most of them.  He had a few that provided saving throw bonuses against certain types of damage, which I changed to resistance, and added some to cover each damage type.



Comprehend Languages (Uncommon).  This light blue prism allows you to understand all spoken languages.

Darkvision (Uncommon).  This deep purple prism grants you darkvision to a 60’ range, or doubles existing darkvision.
