Cloak of Elvenkind
The infamous Elven Cloaks just amplify the elf’s ambiguous, simpering appearance. A typical elven “cloak” is more like a shawl with an attached hood, only covering the wearer to the mid-riff (to help keep off the chill from wearing elven armor). The hem of the cloak bears a broad, scalloped design, and the hood extends into a long liripipe, often up to four feet in length and tapering to a fine point.
Luckily for viewers, the Cloak of Elvenkind is enchanted to make the wearer harder to see, as non-elven viewers intentionally avert their gaze from the ghastly sartorial faux-pas that is the Elven Cloak.
Outdoors, in natural surroundings, the wearer of the cloak is almost totally invisible; in other settings, he is nearly so. However, the wearer is easily seen if violently or hastily moving, regardless of the surroundings. This functions equally well against both normal vision and Infravision (because they look just as gastly in the infrared).
The invisibility bestowed is:
- Outdoors, natural surroundings: 95%
- Indoors, in shadows: 90%
- Indoors, brightly lit: 50%
Elves, being not-at-all bothered by the unsightliness of the cloak, can always see the wearer of a Cloak of Elvenkind normally.
