Bone Mask of Life (Relic)

This magic item originally appeared 17 Relics by The Le Press. A relic is a powerful magic item which once formed part of the body or belongings of some great figure. See Seventeen Relics for special rules on relics.

This relic, fierce as it appears, is actually a holy artifact made from the skull of the first aasimar to become a king on the material plane. The mask, with horns coming out of the front, covers the top half of the wearer’s face except for the eyes and nose. It attaches securely to the wearer’s face, resizing to fit anyone with a head of general humanoid form, up to a maximum of Large size.

While wearing the mask, its fearsome visage confers a +2 competence bonus to all Intimidate checks, but the wearer suffers a -2 penalty to Diplomacy checks. The fierce soul of the bone mask increases the wearer’s level by one for the purposes of turning (but not rebuking) undead, and grants the wearer a +1 divine bonus to saves versus any the special abilities or spells of any undead.

The bone mask of life takes up the same “magic item slotâ€? on the body as goggles or eyeglasses.
