New Magic Item – Whisper Wine19 February, 2011
It is an irony not lost on the Quiet Order of the White Hills that their wines are sought after by thieves, scouts and others with nefarious purposes in mind. Some say that their very best customers are people carrying on illicit love affairs, which the Quiet Order oddly does not seem to object to, though for what reason it is unknown.
This white wine is a crafted by an order of silent monks and aged in casks of white oak among the quiet cellars of the order. The bottle it is stored in is usually brown glass and sealed with white wax marked with the symbol of the order.
Each glass of whisper wine gives the drinker a +4 insight bonus to Stealth checks for six hours but during that time the imbiber cannot speak in a voice above a whisper (and is incapable of casting a spell requiring verbal components). A spell caster may take a swift action and expend a spell slot to end this effect. An standard bottle contains enough wine for four glasses.
