Originally invented by shamans of the Kellid tribes of the Realms of the Mammoth Lords, zoic fetishes have spread throughout the Inner Sea region and are much sought after in any area where dangerous animals dwell. Each zoic fetish looks different, but is essentially a small fetish made from branches, grass, twine, and bone crafted into one of several shapes—a mammal, a bird, a reptile, an amphibian, or a fish.

As long as you carry a zoic fetish, you are somewhat protected against attacks from animals, gaining a +1 insight bonus to AC against all animals. In addition, possession of a zoic fetish grants a +4 insight bonus on wild empathy checks. Finally, once per day, you can present a zoic fetish to an animal of the same classification as the fetish (mammal, bird, reptile, amphibian, or fish) to use dominate animal on that creature.


Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, dominate animal, hide from animals; Cost 3,750 gp
