Arcana DC 15: These rings are normally found only in the hands of the Purple Dragons of Cormyr (of Ornrion rank or higher), the royal family of that nation, or by individuals performing special missions on behalf of the crown. The Purple Dragons use them to protect the royal family from assassination attempts by poison, and also to verify that merchants claiming the sale of magic potions are not being fraudulent.
