A phonograph sits on a table, the record is spinning, but the needle is raised.
|The record is a special scroll filled with sonic spells. When the needle falls, it casts one of the spells through the horn.
The needle is very precariously balanced. Any creature that moves within 10 feet of it causes the needle to fall, unless they specifically take actions to move softly. If they do, this requires an DC 14 Dexterity (Acrobatics) check.
When the needle falls, it plays harpsichord music and casts one of the following spells into the room.
Channeled Sound Blast – cast as a full round action with a DC of 17
Deafening Sound Blast – with a DC of 14
Creaking Cacophony – with a DC of 13
Haunting Tune – with a DC of 13
A general aura of magic on the phonograph can be detected with detect magic or a successful DC 12 Intelligence (Arcana) check.
Dispel magic or a successful DC 16 Intelligence (Arcana) check permanently disables the spell casting abilities of the phonograph.
The record can be taken and used as a scroll with any remaining spells.
