Cloak of Scintillating Colors
The origins of this cloak have been lost in the mists of time. However, for some time it was in the possession of Drosus, a mage of no small power from Waterdeep. Drosus fell afoul of an unusually large group of winter wolves on a solo expedition into the Spine of the World mountains having been forced to don a heavier cloak to keep out the cold. At first glance this cloak appears to be blinding white in color. However, it is in fact a composite of thousands of colors, which dance and play in any available light source. This barrage of scintillating colors tend to distract and particularly blind anyone starting directly at the wearer.

Wail of the Virgins
This thin coal appears frayed at first, but upon closer inspections, the stray threads are actaully human hairs from which the cloak is woven. The cloak twists in torchlight, each strand of hair traveling and unraveling about the other so subtly that it appears as if a light breeze is rippling the cloak. The cloak is woven from the hair of virgins sent to the Burial Isle to sleep with their dead barbarian lords. It was the Seer’s duty to comfort these women, to soothe their pain- in order to do so, she took a lock of hair form each and wove the strand into a cloak that would draw the spirits of fear from the virgins and steady their hearts. The result was a cloak that hangs heavy with guilt and does little to shield the wearer from the cold of the North. When worn, the hairs weave around the wielder’s frame, the long stands lacing together like threads on a loom. The cloak will not willing unravel itself from a wearer without being coerced by a Remove Curse spell.

Cloak of Invisiblity

Betrand used the cloak effectively until he came up against a demonic foe that could see right through the illusion. Betrand’s body was never found, but the tattered cloak continued to work wonders for Betrand’s comrade, the thief Dacon Blackwood. Dacon eventually ran afoul of a thieve’s guild in Sembia. He was believed to have escaped their wrath by traveling to Berdusk. How this cloak arrived at its recent resting place is unknown.

Mithran was well known for his love of travel and his aceptance of the “n’TelQuessir” or “not people” the non-elven people of this world. The cloak was actually the cause of his doom, for it was woven and enchanted by his dark elf lover, Rauva Vrinn.

With a small band of warriors, Gaedel stormed her hut and quickly killed her. When Mithran discovered what had happened, he went berserk with fury.

Mantle of the Coming Storm
Lysan apparently left behind this threadbare robe when she went on her pilgrimage to the Vale of Shadows. As a priestess of Auril, she most likely had no use for it when traveling in the snows. This seemingly threadbare robe had become ‘dormant’ upon Lysan’s command, so as not to expose herself as a priestess of Auril. When as much as a single snowflake falls upon the robe, it transform into a scintillating cloak of white that allows the wielder to flaot above snow drifts and walk through even raging rivers with ease. Most merchants will not wish to purchase this item, or, will will do so at a very low price, as they see it as a sacred item of Auril the Frost-Maiden and likely to attract her followers…and her displeasure. Created during the ceremonies of the Coming Storm (the onset of Winter) to Auril, these robes are specifically created to resist flames and allow the wearer to resist any attempt to stop or hold them. Although the priestesses of Auril are naturally resistant to cold and can move through snow and icy rivers with ease, these cloaks amplify the protection of the goddess, allowing the wearer additional cold resistance (which allows a wearer already immune to cold to absorb itse power) and even goes so far as to leach the heaert from fire attacks directed at the wearer. In addition, the robe may be invoke to allow the wearer to pass over or through any obstacle designed to hold them.
