Helmet of Whispering

{{#set:Summary=Allows you to hear the thoughts of others, but makes you insane.}}

This half-helmet is old and looks it. The black iron shows use, but it does not look like a magical helmet unless one looks on the inside. Old bloodstains can be seen on the iron, as if someone’s skull was cracked open inside the helmet. If someone tries to wash these away, the stains return after 24 hours.

This helmet grants the wearer the power to cast detect thoughts once per day, as an 8th level wizard. The thoughts are whispered within the helmet, but only the wearer can hear them.

The curse of this helmet becomes apparent when worn for an hour. The wearer must makes a Will save (DC 20) and, if unsuccessful, is under the influence of an insanity spell. The helmet can only be removed with a successful Strength check (DC 20) and even after being removed the wearer is under the effect of a confusion spell for 10 rounds.

Caster Level: 13th; Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, detect thoughts, bestow curse, insanity; Price: Cost::84,500 gp; Weight: 5 lb.

Weaknesses Edit

The necromantic magic in this helmet is strong, but a remove curse spell can get rid of the curse. If this is attempted, the helmet is treated as if it has a spell resistance of 30.
