Veil of Ethereal Butterflies

Wondrous Item, rare (requires attunement)

This delicate veil is composed of ethereal butterflies that gracefully flutter around the wearer, creating an enchanting spectacle. The veil possesses 5 charges, and each dawn it regains 1d4+1 charges.

The Veil of Illusory Butterflies grants you the following abilities when attuned to and worn:

  • Butterfly Veil (costs 0 charges): As an action, you can command the butterflies to swarm around your head, disguising your face and altering the timbre of your voice. This grants you advantage on Charisma (Deception) checks and can assist in concealing your true identity.

  • Distracting Swarm (costs 1 charge): As an action, you can command the butterflies to converge upon another creature. The target must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw (DC 13) or become blinded until the end of their next turn, as the flurry of butterflies disorients their vision.

  • Evasive Wings (costs 1 charge): As a bonus action, you can command the butterflies to envelop you. Until the start of your next turn, any attack roll made against you has disadvantage, as the butterflies' display distracts and confuses your attackers.

  • Cloak of Vanishing (costs 2 charges): As a bonus action, you can command the butterflies to cloak your form entirely. The butterflies envelop your body and seamlessly blend with the environment, rendering you invisible for 1 minute or until you attack or cast a spell.

The butterflies, attuned to your emotions, instinctively respond to you in certain situations. If the GM determines that your character is feeling embarrassed or uncomfortable in a social encounter, you must make a Charisma saving throw (DC 13). On a failed save, the Veil of Illusory Butterflies activates the Butterfly Veil ability automatically. If you roll a natural 1 on the saving throw and charges are available, the veil unleashes its full potential, activating the Cloak of Vanishing ability instead.
