Charm of the Quiet Brother
Commonly used by those who wish to avoid notice, this charm is nothing more than a small sack of mouse-hide filled with powdered mouse-bones. If worn or carried, it helps make the one it protects “as quiet as a mouse.” It should not be relied upon to hide from magicians, though: chanting Sight from Darkness will reveal the charm’s magic, automatically exposing the one who uses it.
The creation of this charm takes a night’s work, a Ritual check of base difficulty d8, and costs six strain. It keeps its potency until the next equinox, or until broken. Carrying it gives a +2 bonus to stealth-related rolls. This bonus can be increased (at the time of the charm’s creation) by taking another point of strain, and raising the difficulty by one step, for each additional +1 of bonus.
