Isolation Band

Wondrous Item, uncommon

This band is crafted from a thick black fabric and padded with a sound-dampening material. The band is flexible and can be easily stretched to fit over the heads of most creatures of large size or smaller. While on a creatures head, it obscures sensory perception. Depending on the positioning of the band, it can cover one or more (or even all) of the following, resulting in the given effects:

Covered Effect
Eyes The creature is blinded. Any check that requires sight automatically fails. A creature with truesight can see through the band.
Ears The creature is deafened. Any check that requires hearing automatically fails. Additionally, the creature has resistance to thunder damage.
Nose The creature loses the ability to smell. Any check that requires smell automatically fails.
Mouth The creature is incapable of speaking, or making any other sound from their mouth. They unable to cast spells with verbal components.

The Isolation Band is crafted with immense skill and never fails to work if positioned correctly. However, it is not a magical item.

Creation Notes

Inspiration words: deafened and weave.

Great for taking prisoners. Great for players

Some might argue this item is not needed, and characters could just use a standard blindfold & gag. At my table even when blindfolded you would get checks, just with a high DC. This item guarantees automatic failures.
