Champion's Belt

Wondrous Item, legendary (Requires attunement by a fighter or barbarian)

This leather belt has a huge copper center plate, with an inscription declaring the bearer "Champion." The belt is a symbol of triumph and martial prowess.

Whenever you reduce a hostile creature to 0 hit points, the belt gains a star, which is magically etched on to the center plate. If you are reduced to 0 hit points, the belt loses a star. When you reach certain milestones, the belt manifests its powers. Milestone Powers can also be lost when losing stars.

If you die and remain dead for 7 days, the star count is reset to 0.

3 The belt refuses to attune to creatures other than you.
10 Once per day, you can spend a bonus action to gain temporary hit points equal to your proficiency bonus. The temporary hit points are lost next time you take a long rest.
20 You gain advantage on intimidation checks.
40 You can no longer be surprised.
60 You gain resistance to all damage.

If you lose a fair, one-on-one fight against an equally-matched opponent, the GM may decide that you have lost attunement to the belt, and it has instead become attuned to the creature that defeated you. The GM has discretion on what situations this applies to.

When a belt is found, it might have stars. The GM can roll a d6 to determine how many.

Creation Notes

Inspiration words: dazzling and achievement.

Similar to Adaptive Blade, this one sort of breaks the rarity rules. Legendary items are normally only for very high-level characters. But you could give this to a mid-level character and it'll get better as it goes.
