Magic Item of the Month: Bulwark Baby Björn

Each month (eh, most months?), we’ll give you a new magic item to use in your 5e game. This month, we give you the bulwark baby björn.

Bulwark Baby Björn

Wondrous item, rare (requires attunement by an infant)

This magic item was created by a bard whose “downtime activities” resulted in them being the caretaker and guardian of a baby. The bard wanted to ensure that the baby remained safe even while they explored dangerous dungeons.

This magic harness holds the baby on the wearers chest and also provides the baby inside with magical protection.

While inside, a baby attuned to the baby björn has three-quarters cover (+5 to AC and Dexterity saving throws) and resists all damage. Additionally, whenever the baby in the björn takes damage, the adult wearing the baby björn can transfer all of the damage dealt to themselves, so that the baby takes no damage.
