War Mask of Terror

Shamans and warriors of many of the indigenous tribes of western Garund add to their fierceness and mystique by wearing wooden masks that bear terrifying visages of demonic spirits. A war mask is considered sacred and personal, and is often handed down to the next generation when a wearer dies. Individual masks are often notorious, and many tribesfolk can readily identify masks of other tribes with a DC 15 Knowledge (local) check.

A war mask of terror provides its wearer with a +2 competence bonus on Intimidate checks and a +1 deflection bonus to Armor Class. In addition, the wearer may cast scare once per day.

Other war masks exist with different abilities; some have higher deflection bonuses, while others can cast bull’s strength, fear, or flesh to stone instead of scare.


Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, scare, shield; Cost 4,500 gp
