Armada Medallion

Today's post is a short one, detailing a new treasure inspired by tales of the Spanish Armada.


Armada Medallions
Each of these golden amulets was created following the English defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588. As part of the celebration on that occasion, copies were given to Captains Drake, Hawkyns and Frobisher, Lord Howard, and others. Since then they have come to represent how a small group of dedicated mariners were able to fend off the a larger enemy in defense of their homes.

In game terms, the medallions provide a +1 circumstance bonus to all saving throws and attack and damage rolls made by a character defending one's home. In this case, home can be defined as a city, against people from the same country; anywhere in that country, against opponents from another nation; or a ship, insofar as mariners are at home aboard it. Note that the character who possesses one of the medallions should declare which city, country and ship one considers to be home.
