20 lucky winners will acquire one of the magnificent pieces of head armour from Tallys's Master Collection!
Don't forget that any character who purchased one or more tickets for this raffle will be able to turn them in for an Experience bonus!
This thin leather band, which is worn around your head, is fitted with a total of 12 sparkling gems: 3 sapphires, 3 emeralds, 3 rubies, and 3 diamonds. The enchantment this remarkable item bears gives its wearer deep knowledge of the enemies he or she may face, and thus helps to increase the Melee Rating of the adventurer lucky enough to possess it.
This studded leather skullcap was part or a large trove of items Tallys discovered in the lair of an ancient dusk dragon. Tallys later learned that this remarkable pieceof head armour once belonged to a revered Phiadonese seer who unfortunately ended up being little more than a light snack for the previously mentioned dragon.
Few items in the mortal realm are so capable of invoking dread upon sight as is this thin, black cloth hood. Nine ghoulish skulls have been woven into the hood with grey thread. The skulls routinely change position on the hood and Tallys claims that the one time he attempted to don it, he heard strange whispers -- he never again tried to wear it. It is believed that this mysterious item once belonged to a powerful necromancer.
This fanciful leather cap is adorned with three broad plumes: red, white, and black. Not only is this enchanted hat a remarkable piece of head armour, but it also greatly improves the singing voice of anyone who wears it!
This magnificent plate helm is shaped to resemble the head of a small dragon. Tallys acquired this remarkable piece of head armour from the lair of a thief lord he once raided at the behest of the Ryorsilian King.
This black cloth cowl is a headpiece that is said to have at one time covered the head of the notorious Phantom Assassin. Tallys was presented with this cowl by a longtime friend of his who had a short, but unpleasant encounter with its infamouse owner.
This thin leather circlet is fitted with a small iron square that rests against the forehead of its wearer. Tallys claims not to recall how he acquired this piece, though it is plainly evident that he knows more about this item than he is willing to admit.
Tally discovered this thin, but intricately carved crown of oak deep in forests of southern Ryorsial. Though he claims not to know the origin of this extraordinary piece of head armour, the crown was something he wore for years during many of his most perilous adventures. A wide notch exists on the left side of the crown, though Tallys is quick to point out that the mark was already there when he found it.
This grey cloth headpiece covers the head and shoulders of its wearer. In combat situations, the mantle uses the power of illusion with which it's been imbued, to help deceive those wishing to do harm to it possessor, thus raising the Melee Rating of any adventurer lucky enough to be wearing it.
