Occult fetish: at 3rd level, the Student of the Occult can create a special type of magic item known as a fetish. A fetish takes up a body location "slot" according to the design of the creator. For example, a fetish may be made as a necklace, headgear, or a ring, or any other location as desired. The fetish is a single spell storing item of maximum level 3, which activates when the condition appropriate to its use occurs, for example: a fetish for Bull's Strength would activate when the character begins exerting themselves strenuously, such as in combat, or lifting a heavy load. A fetish for Cure Light Wounds would activate when the wearer took damage, or when the wearer drops below 0 hit points (creator's option). The spell has all normal effects as if cast by the creator once activated, including duration. Treat the fetish as a potion for gold and experience point cost. The Student must find an appropriate incantation for the spell they wish to use.
