Watchful Drum (Artifact )
by jabberwock

This small drum, made with the skins of tigers, is easily carried by a lone traveler on foot. When camp is made, the knowledgable traveler places it beside herself and fuels it with two motes. The drum begins to play itself in a soft, primal rythm and continues to do so throughout the night. As long as the drum is playing, no predators of normal animal intelligence will approach the camp. The drum is also usable by mortals, who must first know the proper rythm and begin playing it, expending a willpower to make the drum continue playing through the night.
