Mask of the Infernal Offspring
Wondrous Item, Very Rare (requires attunement)
While wearing this mask you feel a ferocious heat work its way through your body, out to your limbs. This heat is unpleasant at first, but soon it subsides and you’re left with a sense of infernal righteousness. You gain the following benefits and powers while wearing the mask of the infernal offspring:
- Darkvision. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light.
- Hellspeak. You can speak, read, and write Infernal as a language.
- Gifts of the Nine Hells. You have resistance to fire damage. In addition, once per day you can cast hellish rebuke as a 1st-level spell. You can’t use this feature again until you finish a long rest. Your type is also humanoid (tiefling) in addition to your current creature type.
Appearance: This half mask is made of red porcelain, flecked with lines of gold. Protruding from the forehead are two long ebony horns. The mask is held on by a crimson silk band, tied in a knot. The mask is warm to the touch, and smell faintly of cloves and spices.
Background: This mask was a boon given to a human warlock by his infernal patron, granting him hellish powers. The more the warlock grew in power, the more his appearance began to match that of his mask. By the time his warlock pact was complete, the warlock had become a tiefling. Imbued with the power of the Nine Hells, the warlock discarded the mask, leaving it to be found by another unlikely soul.
The mask is currently hidden in a treasure chest, along with an unsigned contract written upon vellum in human blood. The contract holds the details to an infernal warlock pact with an infernal patron named Zevious the Eternal. Reading the contract aloud, or donning the mask without first attuning to it summons Zevious.
