The Ghost Hood
Wondrous Item, Very Rare (requires attunement)
While wearing this hood you can perceive invisible or intangible undead creatures (ghosts, specters, wraiths, banshees, etc.) as if they were solid and material. Undead creatures perceive you as being a similar undead as well, and are nonhostile unless you attack them or are clearly associated with a creature that is hostile to them.
Additionally, whenever you calculate the damage you would deal to an incorporeal undead creature, you ignore its damage resistances.
Appearance: The ghost hood is a pure white linen sack with two prominent eye holes. Despite its rough appearance, it feels smooth like velvet and cold to the touch.
Background: A Hallow’s Eve tradition is to cut eye holes in white sheets to disguise yourself as a ghost. Years ago, a talented medium made such a disguise, but found that she could see spirits as plain as day while wearing it. Even after her death, the disguise retained this eerie magic. Over time the sheet became frayed and tattered, until only enough remained to cover the wearer’s face as a mask.
This mask has been passed on by supernatural experts, shamans, and clerics who work to lay unquiet spirits to rest. It is often found in either consecrated places like churches, temples, or shrines, or in haunted locations.
Optional Drawback: Undead creatures of all kinds are drawn to the character attuned to the mask when it is not being worn. These creatures single out that character and attack them exclusively, driven to destroy the mask. The opposite is true when the mask is being worn.
