|Examine|| Unactivated: The Ring of charos.|
Activated: The power within this ring has been activated.
The ring of charos was once owned by a human named Charos, whose gift of speech allowed him to bend the wills of the weak-minded. He was aided by his magical ring. It seems that people who are powerful of mind, like Vampyres such as Malak (He says while wearing the ring: "Don't think that silly little ring of yours will fool me") or Drakan are not affected by the ring. The Wise Old Man has also been proven immune to the power of the activated ring of charos.
If lost, pickpocket Dr. Fenkenstrain to get another. He is located in the top middle tower in the castle in the Creature of Fenkenstrain quest. The player should note that after The Great Brain Robbery, he moves to the basement of the granary on Harmony Island. The ring cannot be reclaimed from a gravestone.
The ring can be activated at the start of the Garden of Tranquillity quest, after completing the Wise Old Man's quiz on persuasion, becoming a Ring of charos (a). Once it's activated, it will stay activated even when lost.
