Sharkeye’s Stove

Legend has it that a rich sea pirate by the name of Sharkeye gave up the seaman’s life to settle down and marry a woman he met on shore. When a particularly clumsy and dimwitted servant had burned his breakfast for the third time that month, he became enraged, ordering the man to sit upon the stove until he had gained some sense.

Amazingly, the man discovered himself feeling altogether cleverer and more eloquent through some unexplained magic of the stove. When word of this magic stove got out, the servant secretly auctionned off the stove at a high price. Unfortunately, he failed to realise the item’s only flaw, and found himself losing his intellect and charm the very next day…

Sharkeye’s Stove provides a permanent +2 inherent bonus to both Intelligence and Charisma to anyone who sits upon it. However, if someone else later sits upon the Stove, the previous person immediately loses these benefits.
