It’s widely known that dwarven men value their beards highly, and take any damage to their beards very seriously. It is for this reason that certain enemies of the dwarves have occasionally use traps or magic to cut, burn or otherwise damage a dwarf’s prized facial hair. Though magic item creators are rare in dwarven society, a small group of clerics was formed to deal with this problem. Dwarven beard rings were their solution.
A simple piece of magically enhanced jewellery, a Dwarven beard ring provides magical protection against beard-related injury. Any attack made specifically against the wearer’s beard has a -2 penalty to hit and damage. Any spell cast on the beard allows the dwarf a +2 bonus to the saving throw. If the beard is set on fire, the flames are automatically extinguished within one round. The beard ring provides absolutely no protection against attacks or magic which do not specifically target the wearer’s beard.
Up to three Dwarven beard rings can be worn at any one time, and the bonuses stack.

I’m just curious - does this mean the beard is a party member?
