Wondrous Item, very rare (requires attunement)

There was a king who who wanted to hide his adulterous deeds from his wife. To do this he had his servant, a girl named Echo distract her with songs and poems, for she had a way with words. Time after time they would do this, but eventually, the kings wife, a powerful sorceress caught on to their little trick. As revenge, she cursed Echo, taking away her words and making it so that she can only repeat the words of others. Over the years, she transformed into the first mocking bird, doomed to forever repeat the words of others. They say that when you call out into the mountains and caves, you will hear her voice in response.

The Curse of Echo is a small silver bracelet depicting scenes of singing mocking birds. When attuned to it, you will receive Echo's great gift with words. You double your Charisma modifier and have advantage on all Charisma checks and saving throws. You can gather a crowd with ease by showing of your singing, poetry and epic tales and you can always find a place to perform, usually in an inn or tavern but possibly with a circus, at a theater, or even in a noble’s court. At such a place, you receive free lodging and food of a modest or comfortable standard (depending on the quality of the establishment), as long as you perform each night. In addition, your performance makes you something of a local figure. When strangers recognize you in a town where you have performed, they typically take a liking to you. You can also innately cast Charm Person three times a day (save DC 8 + Prof. Bonus + Char. Modifier).

Echo's Curse. After 1d6 + 2 days of continued attunement, you must make a DC Charisma saving throw (ignoring your Charisma modifier bonus). On a success, nothing happens and the user must repeat the saving throw during their next long rest if still attuned. On a failure, the user will have a strange dream where a woman in royal garb chastises you and puts a curse on you. When you wake up you are unable to speak and unable to remove the bracelt. But whenever someone else says something, you will repeat their words. The only way to remove the curse and end your attunment and remove the curse is with a remove curse spell being cast at 5th-level or higher. But after 1d4 days these spells will fail. You start growing feathers all over your face and body. These are unnoticeable at first, but after 1 hour, your body is almost fully covered by feathers. Around this period, your body will contort and warp as your bones are painfully reorganized and hollow out, your fingers begin to stretch out and all nonmagical items on your body will be absorbed into your being expert for the braclet. At the 30 minute mark, your feet are those of a bird and your arms have grown into wings. In the last 30 minutes, your lips will harden and stretch out into a beak, you will begin to grow a tail of feathers and your body will begin to shrink. Once this hour passes, you will have finished your transformation into a mocking bird. All of your stats are replaced by those of a mocking bird (use raven statistics) and you are doomed to repeat the words of others for the rest of your life. The only way to return you to normal is through a wish spell.
