Mantle of Chinhotep
A colorful robe spun with cloth of silver and gold
A colorful robe spun with cloth of silver and gold and festooned thin gold plates with arcane markings on them. This magical garment conveys several beneficial effects to its owner. First, The Mantle of Chinhotep grants a +1Personality modifier to the wearer. Second, each gold plate (there are 6 to begin) has the ability to absorb, and render harmless to the caster only, one level of spell. For instance, it can negate a magic missile spell at the cost of one gold plate. A fireball spell will use up three gold plates. Once used, the plates turn to a base, dull lead.
