Tuesday Magic Item – Coffinnails of Cool

7 August, 2012

Nick the Blade lit a gray cigarette and took a deep drag.  “It is all going down tonight,” he told Thin Tony.

Smoking Kills

Be cool, light up

The jumpy Tony nodded and tried to light his own cigarette.  “I know, but won’t the Granite Mob fight back?”

Nick lit Tony’s coffinnail with his silver lighter.  “Won’t matter.  We will have the jump on them.  The Granites will be . . . broken,” he said with a smirk.  “Now smoke up, we are leaving as soon as the others get here.”

Coffinnails of Cool

These cigarettes are wrapped in gray paper and packaged in coffin shaped packages.  Their ash is white and their smoke is white and carries a hint of sweetness, which some register as decay.

Those who smoke these cigarettes find they calm and sooth their jitters, but overuse makes the smoker cold and calculating.  While smoking and for 5d6 minutes afterward the smoker gains a +3 morale bonus to saves against Fear and a +1 bonus to Bluff and Intimidate checks.

Prolonged steady use, over years, make these bonus permanent as long as the user smokes at least a cigarette a day, however they begin to lack empathy, suffering a -2 penalty to Diplomacy checks and a -1 penalty to Animal Handling and Sense Motive checks whether they smoke the cigarettes or not.

Notes: Yes, more magical cigarettes and why not?  Smoking has a long history, magical cigarette should be common.
