The Slashed Faces
Wondrous Item, rare (requires attunement)
While wearing this vampire mask you are overcome by rampant bloodlust and the urge to kill. Once per day, you may enter a Rage, as if you were a 1st level barbarian. The rage ends after 1 minute or if the mask is removed.
Appearance: This frightening mask is made from the human flesh and hair of three faces stitched together. It fits over the head completely, and has holes for the mouth, eyes, and nostrils. The mask’s skin is leathery and shriveled, stained with dark splotches of blood. On the inside of the mask it smells strongly of blood and smoke.
Background: This mask is the twisted remains of three long dead murderers: a female human butcher known as Lysa the Slicer, a male dwarf called Urgeth Two-Teeth, and a male halfling only known as The Green Poisoner. A malevolent force exhumed their graves, removed their faces, and stitched them together into this vile murder mask. It retains the vile impulses of the killers it’s fashioned from.
This mask currently lays upon an altar devoted to a death god in random dungeon, waiting to be claimed.
Optional Drawback: The mask’s murderous personalities can assert themselves over the attuned wearer, even when the mask isn’t being worn. Whenever the wearer uses its rage ability, there is a 20 percent chance that during the wearer’s next long rest they are compelled to kill in their sleep. The wearer sleepwalks, putting on the mask, and venturing out into the night to kill. The wearer doesn’t perceive this happening, and wakes up with no memory of the random killing of a single stranger that they committed in the night.
