Phinegan’s Mute Stocking
Aura faint illusion; CL 3rd
Slot hands; Price 7,000 gp; Weight 2 lbs.
Description
This soft-furred hand puppet represents a domestic animal such as a dog or cat, and has shiny ceramic eyes; it is made primarily from a stocking. While wearing the puppet on one’s hand, you can speak to a single visible ally within 60 ft. without making a sound; this is not a telepathic effect, but a magical one, it cannot be intercepted psionically or magically. You cannot wield a weapon or item in the hand that the stocking is on. Once per day, the owner of phinegan’s mute stocking can cast a spell as if possessing the Still Spell metamagic feat. If they possess that feat, the spell that they cast does not increase in spell slot level. A bard may use phinegan’s mute stocking to conduct a silent bardic performance, if their regular performance involves auditory components it is still effective in every way, and can affect beings not normally affected by auditory attacks, such as akatas.
