Haenson’s Magnificent Marionette
Aura moderate transmutation; CL 9th
Slot head; Price 12,000 gp; Weight 5 lbs.
This item is a colorfully made cloth puppet with exaggerated features and a hollow form. A finely made product, it can be used as a masterwork puppet for Perform (puppetry), and has a unique and singular power; if the head of the marionette is placed over the owner’s own head, the owner can, during a bardic performance, assume all the traits of a construct, as described in the monster type. The effect can be ended if the wearer takes 20 points of damage, at which point a make whole spell must be cast on it, or a DC 30 Craft (cloth) check must be made to repair it to any kind of usable condition.
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, Craft Magic Arms and Armor, animate rope, fabricate; Cost 6,000 gp
