Tuesday Magic Item – Raven’s Mask

6 September, 2022

Stylish Hat says RavenGollaon frowned.  “Something is wrong but I cannot for the life of me pin down what it is.”

Voddick nodded.  “I agree, there is something disturbing in the air.”  He looked around.  “I cannot help but think it is tied to that young courtier.”

“The one with the long black hair?”

“That is the one.  I think you may be right.”

Raven’s Mask

While called a mask, many of these items are in fact hats, but in either case, they are blessed by and tied to the tricker being of Raven.  Somewhere on each of these items sometimes subtly, sometimes not, is the image of a raven.

The wearer of the Raven Mask can Alter Self for an hour at a time but each time the effect ends, they must make a Will save (DC 15) or retain one cosmetic aspect of the appearance they had assumed.  This can be used up to five times a day but the save DC goes up by 1 each time.

Additionally, the wearer may take the form of a raven, as often as they wish.

However, for however long the wearer is in the form of a raven, Raven make take their form for the same amount of time.

First paragraph as above.

The wearer of the Raven Mask can Alter Self for an hour at a time but each time the effect ends, they must make a Charisma save (DC 12) or retain one cosmetic aspect of the appearance they had assumed.  This can be used up to the wearer’s proficiency bonus times before taking a long rest but the save DC goes up by 1 each time.

Additionally, the wearer may take the form of a raven functioning as a Druid’s wild shape ability, as often as they wish.

However, for however long the wearer is in the form of a raven, Raven make take their form for the same amount of time.

Notes: Raven is a trickster and happy to help others imitate him as long as he get some tricks out of it as well.
