Masks of the Headhunters

Art by Sam Flegal

These masks are made from the skin of an unknown animal and covers the lower half of the wearers face. They are usually decorated with a monstrous grin of some legendary beast or demon. Legends claim they either come from a group of savage warriors of the southern steppes or vicious cannibals from the jungles to the east. They were brought here by a band of travellers and adventurers who upon their return earned their silver by hunting down criminals and witches.

The wearer are able to sense the general direction of where a specific person can be found. If the wearer of the mask also have a part of the person (hair, still wet saliva, toe etc.) or an object with emotional importance for the person (wedding band, spell book, pet etc.) the distance to the person can also be estimated. The direction or distance is never exact.

Using this ability requires ten minutes of undisturbed meditation and the wearer have been wearing the mask for more than half of the last week days. When this ability is used the wearers hair will grow of up to 2" of snow white hair.
