The first is how stacking effects of items work. Is the rule that they don’t stack unless they state that they do, or that their effects do stack unless they say that they don’t? E.g +10hp from Duskwell Talisman and +10hp from Amulet of Athalarion.
Second question, I was recently told that a diamond-soul talisman could negate a master dominate effect, as it is using an item, and not the individual utilizing a skill, feat, or spell. The conversation came about because I was asked if shadow-breaker helped me against Tenebrous in that regard and I assumed no because their dominates are masters. However, shadow-breaker does have a built in “Shadow-breaker, spurn death”. I was wondering if that falls within the same realm of using an item to negate it since the ability comes from the artifact and not myself.
My item states “As a Response to an attack from the front or behind, invoke “Runic Blackweave Mantle” to negate that attack.” Would that allow me to negate a Master Effect, as it is not a skill/spell/feat, but an Item Property?
