Knavel Rings: 20 (Minor) Magic Rings for the Knave RPG

Hey friends! Slightly different post, this is a supplement for use with Questing Beast’s new RPG, Knave. These rings all have minor magical boons, many of which are specific to Knave’s mechanics or OSR concepts but some of which could be adapted to other systems as well. I numbered them so you could roll a d20 to randomly choose one, in true OSR style.
