Scoundrel's Sword Cane
Scoundrel’s Sword Cane
Aura moderate divination; CL 7th
Slot none; Price 20,925 gp; Weight 4 lbs.
A skull and partial backbone carved from ivory top this +2 sword
cane (Advanced Player’s Guide 179), and gray sharkskin covers its
wooden scabbard. The wielder can use the Weapon Finesse feat
to apply her Dexterity modifier instead of her Strength modifier
to attack rolls with a scoundrel’s sword cane sized for her, even
though it isn’t a light weapon.
The eyes of the skull atop the scoundrel’s sword cane
constantly enhance the wielder’s awareness, granting the
wielder a +5 competence bonus on Perception checks. In
addition, once per day, the wielder can concentrate while
holding the cane to see through the skull’s eyes as if they were
her own. In effect, the scoundrel’s sword cane can be used as a
periscope, allowing the wielder to safely peer over obstacles or
around corners. If the wielder has total concealment from an
observed creature except for the end of the cane, the wielder
uses the skull’s Diminutive size modifier for her Stealth check
instead of her own size modifier.
