Effects
This cloak inflicts a -4 penalty to the wearer's Constitution score.
It adds +2 to the wearer's caster level when they cast a Necromancy school or Summoning subtype spell for the purpose of calculation all level-variable effects of that spell. It also grants its wearer a +2 bonus to Necromancy school spells' DC.
It grants the ability to cast vampiric touch spell three times per day, with a caster level equal to character level.
Unequipping this cloak is only possible after casting remove curse spell on the wearer and passing a DC 25 caster level check. Failing this check kills the wearer immediately and summons a hostile Thanadaemon. If the wearer has reached the 20th level, it summons a hostile Astradaemon instead.

Story[edit | edit source]

Long ago, even before Earthfall, a rich man lived in the empire of cyclopes called Koloran. He possessed anything he could ever wish for in ample supply - money, fertile lands, slaves - but envy still gnawed at him, for his neighbor had even more. With the dream of destroying his rival, the man raised a prayer to Famine, one of the Four Horsemen - dreadful deities who were worshipped in Koloran. The deity demanded bloody sacrifice, and the rich man was all too happy to obey. He wrote his agreement with the Horseman on skin ripped from a living cyclops - one of his slaves - and signed it with his own blood. Famine signed the agreement as well, and in an instant, the neighbor's fields and orchards were filled with swarms of rats.


The rich man rejoiced, but not for long - after decimating the neighbor's crops, the rats moved on to his own lands. So the man prayed to another Horseman, War, for help. The deity demanded their agreement be written on the skin of the rich man's favorite servant - an old butler who'd served the family his entire life. The rich man felt pity for his old friend, but he had to act quickly. So he skinned his butler, and as soon as War signed the agreement, packs of wolves rushed into his lands. The wolves quickly devoured the rats, and then began attacking the slaves.

Seeing his riches melting away, the rich man appealed to the third Horseman, Pestilence, for help. To eliminate to wolves, Pesilence demanded that the rich man sacrifice his concubines. The rich man loved his women very much, but he valued his lands more. After the agreement was signed on the concubines' skins, Pestilence unleashed swarms of flies upon the estate. The flies began spreading all kinds of diseases, wiping out animals and cyclopes alike.

As the rich man pulled his hair out in despair, the fourth Horseman, Death, came with a proposal to return all of his riches in exchange for the lives of all of his family. After the man skinned all his loved ones, Death signed the agreement, and all who'd died previously rose once again - the rich man's slaves, the flies, the wolves, the rats, and even the trees in his orchards. They were all vicious undead now. Once the emperor learned of this, he sent his guards to the estate, and after a series of long and difficult battles, they burned the estate to the ground. A cloak was crafted from the skins that had been used for the vile agreements. The emperor's guards placed the cloak around the rich man's shoulders an chased him through all of Koloran with whips until the cloak and the flesh it covered had been torn to tatters. That would have been the end of this story, but after thousands of years, someone found the pieces of this cloak and restored it, deciding to play with dark powers at their on peril...
