Death Masque

Wondrous item, very rare (cursed)

This is a ceramic mask that fully covers the face and is held in place by silk ribbons. The mask is of an androgynous human face with a neutral expression. When placed on the face, the wearer is instantly transformed as per the alter self spell, but every time it is worn, there is a 1 in 6 chance the curse of the Death Masque will manifest — the magic of the mask creates the illusion that the wearer is a member of the undead. Additionally, the wearer is susceptible to the detect undead and control undead spells.

The death masque can only be removed by a remove curse spell.
