Item advice

There's this magic item I picked up the description for somewhere.

It's called the Ring of the Stalker and gives the wearer +5 to various perception based stuff when used to track the person you nominate as your prey; it also gives one the ability to be invisible to that person 3 times per day (but ONLY to that individual, ie everyone else can still see you). The description talks of it having an Invisible Stalker bound into it. (I forgot to write down details or none were present).

What I'd like to know is if anyone has any idea where I may have found it.

If not, what would you chaps say should be the duration of the invisibility and how often a prey can be nominated.

My current thought is prey can be nominated once per week; invisibility lasts 10 mins per time. Does that seem reasonable? Should the current prey have to be dealt with before a new one can be nominated? etc.

That's not crazy powerful, I would imagine the +5 goes to spot, listen, sense motive, and search. The duration of the invisibility would be however long invisibility (the spell) lasts for the spell level it was created at. As for how often prey can be nominated, I have no idea, but I really like the above idea of needing some of his/her blood or something.

I'd say either give the ring a "Tag" ability 1/day which will activate the rings primary function: +5 to spot, listen, sense motive, search and survival(for tracking) in things related to the subject, and also allows you to become visible to that subject 3/day.

The other option would be to have a companion item, which is some sort of magical dust or powder that can be hurled at a subject to "tag" them as prey, that way you could tag more than one person a day, but you could make the powder expensive enough that its not unbalancing.

The way I see it, the powder would be inside a sling bullet which releases it upon striking something. So if you have a runner that you really need to catch, you could hurl the sling bullet and catch up with him later letting him think he got away.

I think it was survival rather than sense motive, but otherwise yep.

I'd take a look at the Oathbow item from the DMG for targeting.
