When the coat is being actively used, the designs begin to writhe slowly and unnervingly.

However, this item is not produced out of thin air. It is actually teleported away from the nearest mundane source, and will raise suspicion in the rightful owner. Using this power also makes the coat exude a strong smell of the substance so acquired.
  59. Cloak of Memories – This loose cloak is a nondescript grey in color, but upon close examination a subtle swirling pattern can be seen. The cloak has two magical effects, with a fifty percent random chance of either occurring: Remembering: Anybody interacting with the wearer beyond casual contact will, for good or ill, never forget them. Every action, every word, every detail will be recalled with perfect clarity, and may result in an unhealthy obsession; Forgetting: Anybody interacting with the wearer beyond casual contact will forget everything about that interaction upon leaving the wearer’s presence. Anybody so affected will gradually become aware that they have a gap in their memory, and may address the issue as situationally appropriate.

  62. Coat of Arms: the coat appears to be made from dozens of arms harvested from a variety of races and species. If the arm would normally have a grasping hand (instead of say, a hoof), it does so here, and can be used to hold a small object. The coat has no pockets, and items held by the hands are visible to all.
  63. Coat of the Dream Druid: it gives the wearer ADV on interpreting dreams (knowledge arcana) and animal handling. It does, however, make the wearer insufferable.
  64. Coat of No Return: When worn, the player cannot exit a room from the same threshold they entered in from. If the player dies wearing the coat, they cannot be resurrected.
  65. Coat of Camelot’s Widow: a double-breasted, strawberry pink coat with a navy trim, stained with the blood of a murdered monarch (the last bit optional if you are squeamish—or gorier if you relish it). The wearer gains the benefits of the True Appraisal spell and gains a bonus to persuasion checks when negotiating with art dealers and home decorators.
  66. The Emperor’s New Cloak: The cloak almost disapparates but gleams majestically. When worn it grants the wearer a bearing of nobility and they gain a charisma bonus of +5. However, when a NPC or player succeeds on a perception check of a 25, the wearer appears naked to everyone in eye shot.

  71. Coat of Gilly: This coat appears messy, and is covered in detritus. Advantage on stealth while still, disadvantage if moving.

  73. The Marquis de Carabas’ coat: It’s a formal black knee length coat filled with hidden pockets. The PC must make a perception check of 15 to find what he is looking for in the coat. On a perception of 25 or more the PC discovers all items hidden in the coat.
  74. Coat with Nothing to Declare: Allows the wearer to enter any city or port if they are carrying no luggage and respond to any questions by authorities in fewer than 3 syllables. The wearer also waives any custom fees. Inside pocket magically contains documents and identity papers that corroborates the wearer’s claims.
  75. Beaver Coat: this furry side of the coat instantly blends any wood it touches. Can protect the wearer from damage from wooden weapons.
  76. Firefly Coat: looks normal, but glows in the dark when the wearer is horny.

  80. Human Coat: looks normal, but turns the wearer into an egocentric asshole.
  81. Kenku Coat: this red, silky coat side makes the wearer able to replicate any sound they ever heard. People listening to it must pass on a CR 14 Perception check to know it’s an imitation.
  82. Mimic Coat: looks like a dark, chaotic mass of tentacles and pseudopods, until the wearer wills it to make them look like something else. The perfect disguise.
  83. Queen Velour’s Gown: Resembles Velour’s form fitting red garb that she wore when she battled Shea Couleé for the crown. When the wearer successfully hits an opponent, rose petals erupt from the point of contact and the party gains +1 morale bonus for attack rolls and saves (cumalative for up to 4 points). At will, wearer can cast Lock Gaze, granting your allies concealment. Ain’t it shocking what love can do?
  84. Coat of Narration: the coat takes in the appearance of a normal cost for the time period but an audible narration is heard by everyone in a 10 ft radius. Stealth rolls are at a disadvantage towards creatures within this radius.
  85. Coat of Annoyance: The coat resembles a normal looking coat but has a mind of its own and reacts to the wearer’s movements and thoughts. The coat does not hesitate to annoy the wearer by becoming stiff, itchy, and could even become a straight-jacket if the coat is feeling devious enough. The only way to please the coat for a while is to give it coins in its pockets.
