New Magic Item – Third Hand Scarf

29 January, 2014

Fashion and functionThat Hollovar is an expressive man, he uses his hands almost as much as his voice when he talks . . . and he can talk for hours upon hours.  His clothing often seemed as expressive as his hands, his scarf flying about, his sleeves flapping.  But he is a good fellow, if a bit of a chancer, a wide boy, if you catch my meaning.

But the other day, as he was leaving, I could almost have sworn that his scarf waved good bye to me.  I must be drinking too much, my friend.

Third Hand Scarf

A slightly tattered scarf that seems to shift more than wind or the wearers movement would account for.

Beyond the normal use of keeping one’s neck warm, the end of the third-hand scarf acts as an extra hand.  While it can only lift up to 5 lbs it is still extremely helpful.  Its ability to do fine manipulation is very limited (-10 to disable device checks made with the third-hand scarf) but it is extremely useful to pick pockets and other such tricks, providing a +5 competence bonus to Slight of Hand checks for such tasks.

While the third-hand scarf is incapable of effectively wielding a weapon or striking a blow, it can be helpful in combat, providing an additional distraction, adding a +2 equipment bonus to Bluff checks when making a feint and to aid another checks.

Aura faint transmutation; CL 5th
Slot neck; Price 3,700 gp; Weight – lbs.
Construction Requirements
Craft Wondrous Items, cat’s grace, mage hand, unseen servant; Cost 1,850 gp

Notes: This is my latest, failed, attempt for Paizo’s RPG Superstar.  It was thrown together at the last moment, but I am happy at how it came out even if it did not get selected.  Posting it today when my area of the South is closed down due to ice and snow seems appropriate.
