Tuesday Magic Item – Collar of the Clever Cat

30 October, 2018

Isis' collar“Cats!  Again?!” said Voddick shooing them out of the saddle bags.  “Must we always be plagued by feline felons?”

“They might be friendly,” replied Gollaon with a grin.

“Seems unlikely,” Voddick said pulling another cat out and sending it on its way.

“Well, cats are useful, keeping vermin down.”

“True,” sighed Voddick.  “And shooing cats is better than killing rats.”

“That is the spirit.”

Collar of the Clever Cat

These collars are always beautifully made, sometime bejeweled but always of the highest quality materials.  They always fit snugly, but comfortably, no matter if they are put around the neck of a person or cat.

The collar is comfortable and gives the wearer, the following bonus:

  • If a cat, +2 enhancement bonus to Intelligence and Wisdom (bringing both to a minimum of 8) and the ability to speak a human language.
  • If a person, +2 enhancement bonus to Dexterity (bringing it to a minimum of 8) and low-light vision.

Additionally, once a day for an amount of time equal to an hour plus one half hour per point of Charisma modifier (if positive, minimum zero), the wearer can shapeshift into the other form (person if cat, cat if person).  Only the being and collar shifts, nothing else, clothes and other jewelry is left behind.

If the collar is removed from a shapeshifted cat, it returns to its true form, while a person who has shapeshifted into a cat, is trapped in cat form.
