The Forge: Cloak of True Protection

It growls possessively when the party goes item shopping and purrs appreciatively after being fed… I’ll spare you the details of its diet.

The name is Orik Flamebeard, I am a Dwarven Blacksmith. I create all forms of magic items, weapons, and armors; anything you can think of I got it. Let’s see what spark of creativity Moradin has blessed me with today.


Cloak of True Protection

Uncommon (attunement to a full spellcaster)

This majestic looking cloak appears to be made out of some sort of supple burgundy suede material. Those who encounter it, however, quickly discover that it has a bit of an attitude. If a character survives the cloaks assaults and manages to roll a successful Animal Handling check (DC 14) they can choose to attune to it. On a successful “pairing” the wearer gains access to the following benefits:

-While wearing it your AC increases by 2. This benefit does not stack with physical armor.

-Once per round, you may utilize the cloak’s charges (total of 5) for one of the following:
-Free disengage action (2 charge)
-Cast ‘Fly’ on self (3 charges)
-Bite attack as a free action (1 charge) (2d6+2)

The cloak regains all charges at dawn.


The beauty about this magic item is that it allows your casters a bit of extra action economy. We all know how much it sucks to miss that one high level spell and feel like you’ve waster a turn.

I’d like to think that it’s also an item with a bit of personality to it. I had my particular version of this item be just a tad jealous of any other vestment attunements my player has. It growls possessively when the party goes item shopping and purrs appreciatively after being fed… I’ll spare you the details of its diet.
