“As a student?  Longer than I care to remember, my friend,” answered Gollaon in a voice tinged with nostalgia.

“Perhaps we should retire and teach a new generation . . . someday.”

“Yes, someday.  But not today and probably not soon.”

“Sadly truth.”

Teacher’s Hat

These hats come in a variety of styles but are always suited to an educator (teacher, tutor, usw) in the culture and are always made of excellent materials, occasionally even luxurious ones.

The wearer of the hat gains a +5 competence bonus to Perception and Intimidation in an academic or classroom setting and cannot be surprised by attack from behind in those situations.

Once a day, the wearer may impart guidance to a number of people equal to the owner’s level plus the modifier of their choice of mental characteristic.  This guidance lasts for six hours or until used.

Lastly, once a day, the owner may reroll a Knowledge check, taking the higher of the two results.

Wondrous item (hat), uncommon

First paragraph as above.

The wearer of the hat gains advantage to Wisdom (Perception) and Charisma (Intimidation) checks in an academic or classroom setting and cannot be surprised by attack from behind in those situations.

The wearer may impart guidance to a number of people equal to the owner’s proficency bonus plus the modifier of their choice of mental characteristic, once used this effect cannot be used again until the owner has taken a long rest.  This guidance lasts for six hours or until used.

Lastly, the owner may reroll a Knowledge check, taking the higher of the two results, once used this cannot be used again until the owner has taken a short rest.

Notes: Today is Teacher’s Day, in Taiwan, and I thought it would be fun to have a teacher themed magic item (especially with the next D&D book set at a shool of magic).
