Wondrous Item (Mask), legendary (requires attunement)

A solid metal mask with decorative designs made in the style of an average theater mask attached to that of a blue silken cover for one's head. The mask bears a flat expression whilst not worn. Wearing the mask gives the wearer proficiency in Persuasion, Deception, Performance, and Acrobatics. If the wearer already has a proficiency in these skills, then they may gain expertise in these skills. Once a person attempts to wear the mask, the mask will begin to latch onto their face. The process can be stopped with a DC 15 Wis Check to not be possessed by the spirits within the mask. If the wearer fails, then the spirits in the mask will begin to take over, unless another person makes a DC 17 Strength Check to remove the mask. Failing to remove the mask or overpower the spirits will result in the wearer switching between three different personalities: The Host, Comedy, and Tragedy. To determine who is in control for the day, the host must roll a DC 15 Wisdom check. If the host succeeds then they are in control, but if they fail, flip a coin to determine which spirit is in control.

Sentience. The mask has two personalities. Comedy is Chaotic Good with an Intelligence score of 16 (+3), a Wisdom score of 16 (+3), and a Charisma score of 22 (+6). Tragedy is Lawful Evil with an intelligence score of 20 (+5), a Wisdom score of 14 (+2), and a Charisma score of 20 (+5). Both personalities in the mask have true sight for 60 feet and can speak Common, Telepathic, and Elvish.
Personality. The mask itself has two personalities that fight within it: Comedy and Tragedy. Comedy is the spirit of a jester who died of laughter that loved to bring joy to the others and seeks to possess a body so he may do so. Loving to tell jokes, talk to people, entertain, and be humorous. Tragedy, a spirit of a young man who drowned in a river, is a the polar opposite of Comedy. Preferring to seldom interact with others and be overly dramatic to itself, often using fancy thespian language and tending to monologue, Tragedy mainly seeks to make the world suffer. Both personalities however share one thing in common: they both love the theater. Normally the two personalities fight over control of the host and mix like oil and water, but often while on stage, they make a truce and decide not to interrupt one another's act.
