Neckerchief Designed to improve skills!

3
Requires Seasoned
You possess supernaturally heightened senses.
Used by Who Fang, Created by Strazhari.
(You must actively and obviously be using Neckerchief.)

Created by Bu Fang, this is a Neckerchief to be worn in the kitchen that allows one to improve one skill within the kitchen! A generally ceremonial item, the neckerchief is taught to be a practical wilderness item in the Scouting tradition. The neckerchief, unrolled, is designed to be the perfect size for use as a triangular bandage for first aid.

Edit: Expensive...might be better as Activated? This is a major investment, clearly to take advantage of the trading economy. It'll raise the question: how many Senses can you have between Crafted items & Innate Powers?

If the max is still relevant, this item will be wasted on most high level characters...


You gain the following benefits at all times. You must actively and obviously be using Neckerchief to gain the benefits of this Effect.

Your senses are enhanced in the following way.

  • Smell: Your nose is highly sensitive and can differentiate between scents the way a dog can, as well as recognize things you have smelled before.
  • Touch: You can pick up on subtle differences between textures with ease, and can immediately find what you are looking for when rummaging (digging through trash, finding a needle in a haystack, etc), assuming it is actually present.
  • Taste: You can recognize any flavor you have previously tasted and name it, and may determine the composition of something based on its taste.

Any senses which have been heightened cannot be overloaded. Battle Scars you receive cannot affect these senses.

  • Examples of overloading a sense include: an explosion causing temporary deafness, a bright light causing blindness, a sedative causing numbness, etc.

  • Sight: You can see things that are normally invisible to the naked eye, such as fingerprints and bacteria.

Any senses which have been heightened cannot be overloaded. Battle Scars you receive cannot affect these senses.

  • When you are within 50 feet of range, your electroreception sense is sufficient for aiming.

  • Examples of overloading a sense include: an explosion causing temporary deafness, a bright light causing blindness, a sedative causing numbness, etc.
