The charm maker inscribes this basswood disk with symbols of healing and speaks words of magic over it as she carves. The charm radiates magic faintly if a “detect magic” spell is cast upon it. When applied to a mortal wound, this charm will keep the person alive for a brief time. The wound will still be fatal if healing, magical or otherwise, is not forthcoming. The charm only provides a bit of extra time for the injured. This charm does not work on poison, disease, life draining powers of the undead or injuries that produce instant death and cannot be healed such as decapitation.
