Cowl of False Reputation


Ever wish you looked a little tougher than you actually are? Well, the Cowl of False Reputation has you covered.

A cowl with a flowing cape.  Can be made of any material but only comes in gray, black and red.

Magical Properties:

When you pull the cowl over your head, you instantly take on a more menacing, tougher facade.  Anyone looking at you gets a vague feeling that they’ve seen or heard of you from somewhere, but they’re not sure where.  All they know for sure is you’re not someone to be messed with.  Works well in those tougher pubs, not so well with the town guard.

Nice one! I can see why a weak, nerdy wizard might want to invent one of these... :) I love the idea of the effect it might have on the city guard. Imagine trying to get through customs unchecked wearing this!

Holy hoodlums, It's the Thug!

Are there Tights of Threatening to make your legs look meaner too?

No, but there is the Ankle Bracelet of No Stubble.

Super-short, but still good. Rightly belongs to the Generic Magical Items... linked!

I agree with Manfred, long have I missed this. It is far to simple to rate much higher than I have but I gave it a +.5 for being original, somewhat. Good job.

I see that this was submitted years ago, but I'm just not as impressed as others have apparently been. It's an OK idea, concisely written.

The basic idea is presented clearly.

I think it is great idea. Especially if the PC do not know that the cowel has any magical properties.

Interesting. A good, low-powered item. I like it.

Another real world thing. White tea. Can only be picked two days a year, the two days before the flowers blossom. Could be a similiar plant the deadliest poison known, cure known diseases or psychosis, or a potent herb that just tastes awesome.
