Headmaster’s Monocle

Price 12,000 gp; Slot eyes; CL 11th; Weight –; Aura moderate enchantment


This monocle with a golden chain grants the wearer an unmistakable air of authority and intelligence. The monocle confers a +2 enhancement bonus on Sense Motive checks and Diplomacy checks. The monocle may also be used to either motivate one’s ally, or browbeat an opponent. As a move action, the wearer may perform one of the two following abilities.

Motivate: By making carefully considered and eloquent speech, the wearer of the headmaster’s monocle may grant a single ally a +2 competence bonus on weapon attack rolls for a number of rounds equal to your intelligence modifier. As a free action, the recipient of this bonus may add an additional 2d6 precision damage to a single weapon damage roll they make during the duration of this effect.

Doing so ends the effect immediately.

Browbeat: By sharply and sternly lecturing an enemy, the wearer of the headmaster’s monocle may force a single target creature to make a will saving throw with a DC of 10 + your intelligence modifier. Should the target fail this save, they become shaken for a number of rounds equal to your intelligence modifier. As a swift action, you can snap at a creature that has already become shaken by this ability to force them to cower for one round, doing so causes the effect to end after the round the target spends cowering.

Both of these modes are mind-affecting, language-dependent effects, including the ability to force the target of a browbeating to cower. Either of these abilities can be used once every 5 rounds, but only one at a time on a single target. If an ally is benefiting from your motivation, you cannot browbeat an enemy, and vice versa.
