Aba of Fair Winds

Wondrous item (requires attunement, rare)

This light, flowing silken robe has a lining of parchment-hued silks dyed with maps and charts covering an area 1,000 miles across, marking major islands and currents throughout that area. What at first glance might appear like simple wrinkles and blemishes in the silk shift and change position in response to weather conditions (such as clouds, rain, and wind) in the region. While you wear the aba of fair winds, you gain the following benefits:

  • You gain a +2 bonus to Wisdom (surival) and other ability checks to navigate within the area depicted on its lining and to avoid natural hazards in that area.
  • You gain a +4 bonus to Wisdom (Survival) checks made to predict future weather conditions in the region.
  • You can make a DC 15 Wisdom check (with a +2 bonus from the above benefit) to plot the best possible course for a wind-propelled ship you are piloting within the region. Until the next time the ship makes port or landfall, the ship’s waterborne speed increases by 10% (decreasing the number of days required for the journey for the purpose of long-term travel by 10%).
