Outfit of Many Scales

Armor, rare (requires attunement)

This form fitting outfit is made from the skin of an elder ophidian.

The garment has a hood and covers the wearer’s torso, including the hands, leaving only the face exposed. The outfit of many scales gives the wearer advantage on Dexterity checks, adds a +4 to AC (cannot be used with any form of armor), and advantage to all saving throws versus poison.

Curse. The garment carries a curse for non-ophidians who would use its power: they must make a Wisdom save (DC 15) each day that the item is worn. One failure makes the wearer feel disoriented, suffering disadvantage on all attacks, ability checks, and saving throws for 24 hours, and they contract the disease of snake transformation. Thereafter, every 24 hours the outfit is worn, the wearer must succeed at a DC 15 Wisdom save or they transform slightly, taking on some aspects of the ophidian (snake eyes, fork tongue, fangs, etc.). If the character fails three consecutive saves, they turn into an ophidian in all ways, including an alignment shift to chaotic evil.
