Gazing Monkey Idol

Wondrous Item, rare

This small jade idol, carved in a distant jungle, depicts a mischievous monkey with its hands covering its eyes. It has 3 charges. While holding the idol, you can use an action to spend 1 charge while presenting it to a creature within 30 feet of you. The idol's hands move revealing the monkey's sapphire eyes. The creature must then make a Wisdom saving throw, DC 15, or be stunned until the end of its next turn.

Even if the creature tries to avoid looking at the idol, the sapphire eyes irresistibly draw the creature's gaze. However, if the creature is blinded, or is otherwise obscured from seeing the idol, it has no effect.

Additionally, if a creature successfully saves against the idol's effect, it becomes immune to the idol's effect for the next 24 hours.

The Monkey Idol regains 1d4-1 charges daily at dawn. If the last charge is spent, roll a d20. On a 1, the Monkey Idol crumbles into dust.
