Coat of Many Colors

Wondrous item, rare

Jacob, patriarch of the Israelites, gifted his favored son Joseph a wondrous coat of vibrant colors. This sparked jealousy among Joseph’s brothers as they believed it meant that Jacob would pass on family leadership to Joseph. This discontent festered as Joseph revealed he had received dreams of prophecy in which he saw his brothers bowing down before him. In their envy, they captured and sold Joseph into slavery and tricked Jacob into thinking Joseph was killed by a wild animal. In Egypt, Joseph used his prophetic dreams and interpretive abilities to gain the favor of the pharaoh and eventually become a governor of the region. While wearing the coat, you may occasionally receive prophetic dreams. These dreams are often vague and require interpretation but do give a glimpse into future events. The nature and content of these dreams is at the sole discretion of your GM.
