Mask of the Shamed Royal
Wondrous Item, uncommon (requires attunement)
While wearing this comical mask you bring a sense of mirth to those around you, putting them at ease. You have advantage on Charisma (Persuasion) checks made to interact with people who dislike the noble your mask depicts. Once per day, you can speak using the actual voice of the noble the mask is made to depict, allowing you to cast the charm person spell (save DC 12).
Appearance: This highly detailed mask is modeled after a notorious and generally disliked royal NPC (choose whichever NPC from your game that you think fits best). It covers the face and head entirely, with small eye holes and a larger hole for the mouth, complete with an attached wig styled and colored like the royal NPC’s hair. The mask is not flattering, and when paired with a good vocal impression, it delights common people and nobles alike who share a distaste for that particular royal NPC.
Background: The mask was made by a court magician who served under the royal NPC but was unfairly dismissed. This court magician loathed the royal, and crafted this mask to mock them during private parties. Being a magician, they figured a couple extra enchantments upon the mask couldn’t hurt.
This mask is currently in the possession of a group of thieves working out of a dungeon. It can be made available to characters in a treasure chest in any dungeon thieves and bandits might occupy.
Optional Drawback: The mask has been saturated in negative energy from all of the mockery it has endured at the expense of the royal NPC it is modeled after. Every time the mask’s charm person spell is used, there is a 10 percent chance the mask will permanently bond with the wearer’s face, transforming their appearance into that of the royal NPC. Now the wearer physically appears to be the hated person they mocked.
