Robe of Shadows (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Armor (robe), artifact (requires attunement by a rogue)
When Vorinthar was chosen as the first Reaper, he crafted himself a special pair of robes to impersonate Death itself. The robes are black without a hood, and made of pure shadow.
Death's Blessing: If you die while wearing the Robe of Shadows, the robes vanish and you regain 10 hit points.
Magical Defense: When hit by magical damage of any kind, Robe of Shadows has an armor class of 18. Otherwise they are 100% translucent and have an armor class of 0.
Shadow Cast: Once per day you may choose to activate a 1d6 random magical effect from the list below, recharging each day at dawn.
1: You turn completely invisible for the next 2d4 hours. The spell ends early if you use it just before dawn. 2: A Fey creature of your choice, up to a challenge rating of 1, is summoned to obey your will for the next hour. Afterward the Fey vanishes. 3: The robes release a wave of magical power, dealing 1d8 necrotic damage to anyone within 5 feet of you. You restore half the damage you gave, rounding up. 4: You turn 75% transparent for the next 2d4 hours. The spell ends early if you use it just before dawn. 5: The robes cast Disguise Self, making yourself -including your clothing, armor, weapons, and other belongings - look different for the next hour.
Destroying The Robe of Shadows: The Robe of Shadows can only be destroyed by Vorinthar himself. If anyone else tries to attempt this feat, the robes vanish.
