Trumpet (Su)

All creatures except archons within 100 feet of the trumpet’s blast must succeed on a DC 20 Fortitude save or be paralyzed for 1d4 rounds. The archon can also command its trumpet to become a holy zero-edge longsword as a free action. Out of the archon’s hands, it is a chunk of useless metal.


Environment any (Heaven)
Organization solitary, pair, or squad (3-5)

Archons are a race of outsiders from a heavenly realm dedicated to the cause of goodness and order.

They are tasked with the protection of their realm and with all those on the mortal world who believe in good and law. They abhor evil and anarchy and are the natural enemies of demons, devils, and other fiendish creatures.

Trumpet archons serve as the messengers of the gods of good and the heralds of the heavenly armies. When the gods of the heavenly realms require mortals to know their will, they send forth a trumpet archon to deliver the message.

A trumpet archon appears to be a beautiful humanoid being with pale skin, white hair and feathered wings, and eyes the color of gleaming pearls. Each trumpet archon carries a gleaming silver trumpet about 6 feet long; often adorned with the symbol of their patron deity. This trumpet can transform into a magical sword at the whim of its bearer.
