Tuesday Magic Item – Elegant Eyes

25 November, 2014

The eyes have itThe dowager duchess entered the ballroom, still elegant and commanding for all of her advanced age.  Her quizzing cane was not in evidence and she moved with a confidence that she had not displayed in public for years.

Intrigued, I approached.  Giving her a deep bow I was unsurprised to see her eyes were still white from their cataracts, but today she wore a headband set with two eyes made of opal.

“Marquis,” she smiled, “how good to see you again.  You remain as handsome as I remember.”

I returned the smile.  “It is delightful to have your perceptive gaze back upon us, your grace.”

Elegant Eyes

 These pieces of jewelry are almost always worked into the shape of eyes or creatures with eyes, with the eyes themselves being made of gems.  Headbands are the most common but other forms are not unknown such as necklaces, broaches or even bracelets.

Their effects is simple, as long as the jewelry is touching flesh, the wearer can see through the jeweled eyes as if they were their own.  If the eyes are somewhere other than where one’s eyes normally are, the wearer is at a -2 penalty to all skill checks while perceiving through the item’s eyes.

Notes: Arcane magic may not be able to cure blindness but it can circumvent it, and you can use it to look around corners too.  Inspired indirectly by my visit to the optometrist today.
