Gollaon pondered.  “That is a good concern but one not warranted.  They are concerned only about the sanctity of their spirit and will not put that at risk for petty advancement.”

“And you are sure of this, why?”

“They value they purity highly and quite firmly.”

“Ah.”

Hiri Headband

These headbands are simple, often just cloth set with a disc bearing a symbol of the faith, some are made of copper.  They are always pleasantly cool to the touch.

First paragraph as above.

The wearer has perfect moral clarity, knowing on an innate level before they take an action if it will violate their moral code.  This give them a advantage on saving throws to resist magical charms and compulsions and to opposed social tests where people are trying to lure them off their path.

As long as they maintain their moral path, they have an additional hit dice to use for healing.

Notes: “Hri is a Buddhist term translated as “self-respect” or “conscientiousness”. It is defined as the attitude of taking earnest care with regard to one’s actions and refraining from non-virtuous actions.” from Wikipedia.  It seems there is a great amount of inspiration to be found in the Buddhist virtuous mental factors.
