Talk:Indigo Coat of Tears (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
It does have cursed Items, this is true. Page 143 of the DMG also details quirks and minor properties as a way of adding distinctiveness to the item. In the Sanctuary's Lot setting, magic items show up quite a lot, to avoid some of the "Monty Hall" syndrome, quite a lot of items have drawbacks or nuisance effects like those listed in the DMG to add a bit more flavor also to keep items from just being a sort of equipment. I don't know, to make magic items more...magical. And a little more dangerous. A quarter of the items in this setting have something that makes players think twice about using them casually, or taking them for granted.
id like to draw attention to special rules like that. truth be told, id rather do it the other way; informally add the drawback tag to the robe of eyes. --Eviltenet (talk) 17:52, 5 February 2017 (MST)
