Tuesday Magic Item – Spectacles of Fine Work

29 November, 2016

Focus“Nice to watch a professional at work,” whispered Gollaon as the locksmith quickly and carefully opened the third lock on the door.

“All yours, gentlemen and ladies,” she said with a sight bow as she stepped aside, pushing up her spectacles.

Voddick adjusted the grip on his shield.  “I will take the lead, Gollaon, Inge, follow right behind, then the rest of you.”

Spectacles of Fine Work

These spectacles have a variety of adjustable lens to magnify and bring into focus nearby items.

It takes a full action to set the lens to the project at hand but once that is done they provide a +5 competence bonus to disable device and appropriate craft checks.

But, if the wearer is forced to shift from these focused tasks to immediate threats outside of their focus work, such as an attack by guards but not a needle trap in the lock they are working on, they are treated as being sickened for the first round as their perspective is wrenched.

These spectacles have a variety of adjustable lens to magnify and bring into focus nearby items.

It takes a Use an Object action to set the lens to the project at hand but once that is done they provide a +5 competence bonus on use of thieves’ tools and other appropriate skill rolls.

But, if the wearer is forced to shift from these focused tasks to immediate threats outside of their focus work, such as an attack by guards but not a needle trap in the lock they are working on, they are at disadvantage on the first 1d3 rolls they make during the first round as their perspective is wrenched.

Notes: Indirectly inspired by my visit to the optometrist early today.
