Extra Info:
gentling mask

In wool paper and acrylic the pain of experience is smoothed away into the aspect of a child. Neuronal clamps peek out from the concave interior surface. The mask is fastened by a brass chain, adorned by beads of glass, and branded on the forehead with the Holy Rhombus, a sign of the price of innocence.

Cannot be removed once equipped.


A gentling mask is facewear that is most often found being worn by the 'domesticated' followers of a newfather. Like some other gear, it cannot be removed once equipped. Because it is significantly easier for most creatures to survive without a face than without a head, severing the attached body part (e.g. with Amputate Limb) is a much more feasible strategy for removal than with a gentling cone. Alternatively, filling a spray bottle with acid or lava and spraying the gentling mask also works.
