Tuesday Magic Item – Pipe of Dreams26 February, 2013
Moslan the Master Painter awoke late, the Sun was , his subject was already there and anxious. He set to work, drinking strong tea and taking deep draws upon his pipe between brush strokes.
After a few hour, he chased his subject away, his inspiration fled into smoke. “Return tomorrow and we will continue.” He leaned back and lit up his pipe again.
Pipe of Dreams
These pipes are always long stemmed, often in the churchwarden style, and made of exquisitely carved wood, rarely decorated. They are polished from loving use and care.
The pipe is exceedingly durable and nearly impossible to burn. It power is activated by smoking a bowlful of the owner’s favorite blend before bed, then they will find their sleep filled with vivid and inspirational dreams, providing a +4 morale bonus to Craft and Perform checks and a +1 morale bonus to the DC of bardic music and spells of the illusion school for the first four hours after awakening from eight hours of sleep.
The use of the pipe also suppresses the user’s appetite which can lead to other problems as well.
