Lesser Pallid Mask (Minor Artifact)

Aura overwhelming conjuration; CL 21st; Slot head; Weight 2 lbs.


Lesser pallid masks are masks that have been shed from the original Pallid Mask and retain some of its cosmic power. The wearer of a lesser pallid mask gains a +4 bonus on Perception checks and all Knowledge checks. In addition, creatures do not notice the wearer’s presence unless the wearer interacts with them personally. Even attacks by apparent allies against the wearer do not alert enemies to the presence of the wearer. This is a mind-affecting abjuration effect similar to hide from animals, though the effect is not restricted to animals. An observer can notice the wearer normally by means other than vision, hearing, and scent.


A lesser pallid mask can be destroyed by wearing it in a zone of truth while in the presence of the King in Yellow as he speaks a secret truth.
