Had a party one time that was made up of two bards, a sorcerer, and barbarian. With all the squish, I came up with an item for the barbarian to wield that could help the rest of the party. The barbarian found a magical axe that would chime if it made contact with an opponent. The chime would last until the beginning of the barb's next turn. Until then, allies gained +1 charisma. Fun addition to the game.
