Demonhelm of Marmon the Hungerer
This evil greathelm was crafted to resemble a vicious, demon-faced beast with
great protruding jaws that constantly shift and animatedly move about as though
hungry or gnawing upon some unseen food. This disturbing animation does not
inconvenience a character that chooses to wear it, and without being worn the
helm poses no danger.
The helm grants its wearer a bite attack, which can
be made once each round as part of an attack sequence, with an attack roll
equal to the wearer's base attack score. Creatures struck by this bite attack
suffer 1d12+5 points of damage and must make a fortitude save (DC14) or
immediately contract and suffer the effects of the devil chills disease
(injury, 1d4 Str).
The wearer of the helm is protected by fire
resistance 20 and gains a +2 profane bonus to their armor class.
