Wondrous Item        4,200 gp

Power (Zone) Encounter (Standard Action)

When you plant this battle standard in your space or an adjacent square, it creates a zone in a close burst 3. Enemies within the zone when it is created or within the zone at the start of your turn are pulled 2 squares toward the battle standard and slowed until the start of your next turn.

The zone lasts until the end of the encounter or until the battle standard is removed from the ground. Any character in or adjacent to the battle standard's square can remove it from the ground as a standard action. If an enemy attempts to remove the standard, it provokes opportunity attacks from you and your allies.
