The skinsaw mask is a magical face-covering which resembles both the stalker's mask and the reaper's mask in construction and design. Crafted for use by members of the dreaded Skinsaw Cult, it is made using tanned human skin and resembles a deformed humanoid face. It contains a single bulging eye, a grimacing mouth with jagged teeth and no nose. When worn, the mask whispers violent and murderous thoughts in the mind of wearer, encouraging the user towards greater debauchery. The mask heightens the senses in regards to detecting fear in others, and allows one to literally see the circulatory system of creatures. The latter ability allows the user to make more effective attacks using slashing weapons of any kind. The skinsaw mask eventually causes permanent damage to the user, as his or her thoughts become sullied with images of hate and mayhem.12


A skinsaw mask radiates both necromantic magic and evil.1
