A bone ring was a magic ring that protected the wearer's life-force.


Despite its name, it could be made from bone, stone, or ivory, but would never be made from any metals.[2]


The ring would protect its wearer from being drained of life energy and health, such as an attack by a vampire. However, each time it protected the wearer, a charge was used up, and when all charges were gone, it crumbled to dust.[2]


Creation of a bone ring required the spell negative energy protection.[2]


It was worth between 20,000[1] and 36,000 gold pieces.[2]
