Created during the dark ages as a way for entertainment among the wizards of the time. They had been trying to think of a way to hurt the opposing empire and also create a little bit of fun for themselves to.
One day, at one of the meetings of the wizards, Kuthu, one of the wizards of the 3rd came with an idea of comedic proportions. He proposed that they create a piece of armor that when adorned, would cause a temporary period of Amnesia. It would cause the wearer to forget periods of his/her past, and some new memories to come. If placed well enough it could possibly debilitate the enemies forces.
The idea was taken with great praise.
We love it. Said many of those in attendance. This will allow for great entertainment and a chance to debilitate some of the enemies forces and give us an edge over them.
So with great applause the wizard Kuthus idea was taken to heart and this ancient item was brought to life.
To this day the item is still around, plagueing the worlds heros and civilians alike. Who knows, maybe you will come into contact with this quite annoying piece of equipment. Hope for the best.
This item appears to be a normal piece of Chainmail and will appear so even if an attempt to detect magical properties is done.
When adorned by a willing creature the affect of the item will instantly take place. The affect takes place in 3 stages, that will occur over the course of approximately 3 days (pending on the time in which it is adorned).
1st Stage ~ The character will be under the idea that this piece of armor was always in their posession and they have always been wearing it. Any attempt to remove the armor from the character will result in aggression.
2nd Stage ~ The character will then lose the ability to remember most facts about his/her past experiences. (Important or strong memories will remain due to their significance to the character ie. parents, place of birth, home, age, etc.).
3rd Stage ~ The character will have no ability to remember new or incoming memories.
After these effects have taken place the armor will then disappear from the characters body to an unknown area where it will then plague someone new.
This process will continue untill the armor is destroyed.
