This spell creates a black leather mask around the target’s head that renders it both blind and deaf until removed. Though vaguely similar to the hood falconers use to make birds of prey more docile, this mask perfectly fits the contours of the target’s head but has neither eye nor ear holes. Any creature (whether the target or another) with hands or similar manipulative limbs can remove the mask as a standard action, but those lacking them must also succeed in Dexterity check (DC 15) in order to do so.

If cast on a creature with multiple heads the caster must decide on which head the mask appears. If cast on a creature with eyes, ears, or similar sensory organs on any part of its body except its head (or on a creature without a head), the mask tears and falls to pieces without actually affecting the target.

The mask renders the target immune to all fear effects (including those already affecting it when this spell is cast) until it is removed. Once taken off the mask loses this ability, even if placed back on the target again, but it still makes the target blind and deaf while worn.
