Tuesday Magic Item – Fog of War Cloak

20 February, 2018

“Good of the Wizard-Militant to provide us with new cloaks,” said Voddick trudging down the fog-shouded trail.

“Agreed,” nodded Gollaon.  “Now, are you sure we are heading the right way?”

“I . . . I am not sure,” replied Voddick looking around.  “You know I am not very good with trees.”

“Oh, there is a picket.”

“Wonderful, a fire and some tea would be welcome.”

The guard waved them by and the pair headed further into the camp.  As one they both stopped.  “This is the enemy camp,” whispered Voddick.”

“Yes, now how do we leave without attracting attention?”

Over the top!

Fog of War Cloak

These cloaks are of thick and durable cloth, usually gray or dust colored.  Sometime the lining is more colorful or sewn with a unit insignia or symbol.  They are very tough and long lasting.

The wearer gains a +4 resistance bonus to ward off environmental cold and it provides a +1 armor bonus.  The wearer gains a +4 competence bonus to Stealth checks when blending into terrain and to Disguise checks when trying to pass as an average soldier.

However, sometime they make identifying the wearer by friendly forces difficult.
