Tuesday Magic Item – Mountaineer’s Hat

10 September, 2013

With a Hat and Monkey you are all set!“Lastly, son, never go up into the mountains without your hat,” Klavs said patting his boy on the shoulder.  “It will protect you and keep you warm.”

The boy nodded, holding his hat tightly before putting it on, “I will remember, Father.”

Mountaineer’s Hat

These cloth hats are made from dense felt, often dark green, and usually with a colored corded hatband for contrast.  Sometime they have a spray of feathers or brush at the side of the crown, if a brush it is almost alway made from the tail of a goat.

The hat will not be blown off of the wearer head by any natural wind and it shields its wearer from the glare of the sun.  But the most important power of the hat is the confidence it inspires in the wearer, once each day they may reroll either a Climb or Perception check or a Fortitude save, taking the higher of the two rolls.

  1. Awesome. I love prosaic items. Why does it have a faint aura of necromancy??

    • Because I forgot to change that from the template I copied the magic item form from. Will correct.

  2. Sounds handy. Love these descriptions you give before each entry btw.

    • Thank you. I try and build in some context and maybe an adventure seed there.
