Wondrous item, very rare
Carved in the likeness of an enormous black carrion bird and trickster totem, a raven’s perch is a figurehead which must be mounted on the prow of a ship in order to function. Once per day, the captain may command the raven’s perch to create an illusion over the vessel so that it appears to be another ship of comparable size (DC 17 Wisdom saving throw to disbelieve). The illusion includes audible, visual, tactile, and olfactory elements, as mirage arcane, including the appearance of the vessel’s interior, but does not change the appearance of any creature on board. This illusion may be maintained for up to 9 hours, but vanishes as soon as the vessel or any creature aboard it launches an attack upon a target not on the ship itself.
