This simple copper headband has a small yellow gem set so that when it rests upon the forehead of the wearer, the yellow gem sits perched on the wearer’s brow as if it were a third eye in the middle of her forehead. Often, the headband contains additional designs to further accentuate the appearance of a third, crystal eye.

The headband grants the wearer an enhancement bonus to two mental ability scores (Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma) of +2, +4, or +6. Treat this as a temporary ability bonus for the first 24 hours the headband is worn.

These bonuses are chosen when the headband is created and cannot be changed. If the headband grants a bonus to Intelligence, it also grants skill ranks as a headband of vast intelligence.


Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, eagle's splendor, fox's cunning, owl's wisdom (any two); Cost 5,000 gp (+2), 20,000 gp (+4), 45,000 gp (+6)
