We are running a campaign that is Comics/Manga and I want to add the Green Lantern power ring (will adjust it to create a ring for all corps) but honestly and having a hard time even getting started on it. Seems it would cast levitate and mage armor of the user upon activation, beyond that....not a clue.

Hmm.. is the game class based?
I think that lantern would work better as class with "arcane focus".

Maybe as variant warlkck and sorcereor.

It's not enough having the ring and play with it.
It require skill and exprience.
That why Sinestro so badass

When the suit is active, it gives constant mage armor and flight, not just levitate.

Otherwise, in general I'd say use illusionist wizards with the conjuration college minor conjuration ability as a bonus feature, the rings are the arcane focus, and the lanterns are the spellbooks. Some specific corps might have some different features, but that should cover Green and Yellow fairly well (just restrict fear spells to Yellow).

Lantern Ring
Aura Overwhelming Emotion; CL 10th; Slot ring; Price 1,000,000(CL x 100,000) gp; Weight

DESCRIPTION

This gem-like ring usually has a solid shape and is capped with the signet of the order it belongs to. The color of the ring is determined by the emotion channeled.

MECHANICS
The ring has a charge capacity of 50 x caster level energy. The energy used determines the exact charge, green Will for green rings, red rage for red rings, etc. Rings gain charge from several sources; direct sources such as batteries and flows of the emotional spectrum energies, from the emotions of their wielder, from emotions directed at the wielder, or the emotions of those around the wielder. Most often non direct sources do not provide enough power to sustain a ring.

By expending 1 charge you may manifest force armor that grants 2 + 1/2 CL armor. This armor manifests in suit with basic design determined by person and accents based on the core.



CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS

Craft Emotion Ring, creator must have strong connection to desired emotion; Cost 500,000 gp.

Some reason 5th didn't register 5e

Assuming were making the real thing this is about 50% of the core functions.

WIP
Green Lantern Ring
Ring, legendary

Each ring is an emphatic intelligent magic item with the purpose of finding someone of high will and driving them to protect the universe from those who wish ill upon others. If the ring deems the bearer unworthy the ring does not function for them at all. The ring can fly with as per the fly spell but will only do so to reach a worthy bearer.

The bearer can manifest a suit of armor that can have any appearance as a free action. If no other armor is worn your AC is 10 + dexterity modifier + wisdom modifier. If other armor is worn it only provides a cosmetic change. If the ring has 0 charges it cannot make the armor.

By expending 1 charge per minute you may gain flight as per the fly spell, this becomes 80% speed of light out of atmosphere. Activating this is a minor action.
By expending 1 charge per day you may gain the ability to endure any natural environment that does not deal direct damage. Activating this is a minor action.
By expending 1 charge per round you may negate any environmental damage. This is a minor action that requires concentration.
By expending 1 charge as a reaction gain resistance to all damage.
By expending 1+ charge as a minor action you may create a construct, a nonmagical item. The item last 1 minute. You may expend additional charges to extend the duration an additional minute. Any item of of 5 cubic feet or smaller takes one charge. Any item is as durable as a steel
versions of the item. Exact costs should be determined by DM. A construct requires concentration to maintain.

The ring records the last round before the bearer dies.

Each ring has a capacity of 1000 charges. A ring may have extra charges but they bleed off at a rate of 50 charges per round until the ring reaches capacity. Ring may be recharged by succeeding in a save vs fear granting 1 charge per level of the source of the fear effect, or by charging it in a power battery.

It's a bit too strong for a single object that can be used as you will.

However, I'd suggest a Warlock with the Mystical Talisman Patron (http://mfov.magehandpress.com/2017/02/the-mystical-talisman.html) from MFOV.

TBH the rings are artifacts. If your going for balance concerns, making the ring consume multiple attunements would be a good fix. Making a "warlock" type class makes a lot of sense.
