Actually pick pockets would love this thing. You spread the dust on the catch and your "bag man" has the item. You, the pickpocket gets nicked by the Watch or the Mark and they can't prove a thing beause you don't have it on you. Go to Comment
Now, what happens if someone dies while wearing it?
I think the Skin would maintain its original look. But what happens to the body inside? If it is completely sealed from outside world, it might become sort of mummified, and so well preserved. One can argue that it is not completely sealed (airtight and all), or your bacterias eat you anyway.
So after a few (hundred) years, you have tattered clothes, a perfectly preserved skin, and the rotten 'filling'. What would the characters think when they spot such a corpse, or when touching it/examining/stealing from it they find it is gelee/liquid/only bones inside?
I think they would be mightily scared, or at least wondering what kind of attack could have caused this bizzare death. And they will wonder long if they don't find the button. Go to Comment
I try to do what I can to satisfy people's requests. Hopfrog wanted something more like an average adventurer would carry rather than an ultimate weapon, I remember almost every established character I know carrying a bag of holding, so I just put a fresh spin on it.
Second skins can be useful to fighters for carrying concealed weapons, armour or items, more so for rouges, clerics and wizards could have concealed magic items and/or scrolls. I'm sure pc's will come up with even more inteteresting ideas. Go to Comment
First of all, I like this idea a great deal. Bravo.
One question...since manfred already covered my other one.
What happens when the robe gets a tear? Maybe a rip from putting it on, or from a slashing weapon. Can the robe be restitched and still have the flawless appearances, or would the wearer only look half naked? Go to Comment
