Brass Collar

Wondrous item, rare

The brass collars used by the Efreeti of the City of Brass to mark their slave castes are finely fitted collars of living brass. The collars are usually affixed with a red hot bolt that more or less permanently locks the collar into place. The inside of the collar is inscribed with eldritch writing detailing a powerful geas upon the wearer of the collar. Wearers of a brass collar are considered to be under the effects of a permanent suggestion spell in regards to their servitude to their master. The wearer also gains resistance to fire damage so long as the collar is locked in place.

Individuals wearing a brass collar cannot flee from their captor, take up arms against them, or disobey their will in any way. Attempting to remove the collar by any means (such as cutting, breaking, or use of a dispel magic spell) requires the wearer to succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or die instantly. Each attempt at removing the collar requires another save. The one who fit the collar to the slave can safely remove the collar without any ill effects to the wearer.

A collar can be broken with a successful DC 30 strength check or doing 60 hit points of damage against AC 16. A brass collar ignores all attacks that do less than 10 points of damage.

Wearers of the collar enter a barbarian-like rage if their collar is tampered with (this is an effect of the collar placed upon the wearer), attacking anyone save their master who attempts to remove their collar.

This rage is exactly like a barbarian’s rage and lasts for one round per Hit Die of the wearer.
