Evil Mask of the Skinsaw Man
Aura: faint illusion; CL: 5th
Slot: head; Price: 3,500 gp; Weight: 2 lbs.
When worn, this leather mask makes its wearer to appear shadowy and insubstantial, granting him a +5 competence bonus to Stealth checks. Once per day, the wearer may also use a disguise self effect to assume the appearance of any creature that he can see within 60 feet. As long as the wearer uses the guise of that creature, the wearer gains a +2 profane bonus on attack rolls and weapon damage rolls against the creature whose appearance he has taken, as the mask imparts strong feelings of hatred and jealousy toward that creature.
Requirements: Craft Wondrous Item, disguise self, rage; Cost: 1750 gp
This mask is crafted from meticulously-preserved strips of supple leather, draped over one another like scales, leaving the eyes and mouth exposed. The overall effect is similar to that of a scaled skull. The mask imparts strong feelings of anger and jealousy to its wearer, especially when the disguise self effect is invoked.
