The tip of this strangely shaped codpiece is elaborately decorated with the weathered idiosyncracies of an imperious, moustached man of older years. The face is said to be the remaining visual effigy of the wizard eccentric who invented it.
The codpiece of attention may be worn over any clothing. It does not take up a slot on the wearer's body, nor does it otherwise grant protection to or impede upon the wearer in any way.
Three times per day as a standard action, the wearer may activate the codpiece's special ability. When invoked, any humanoid creature within a 30 feet cone projected in front of the wearer must make a DC 14 Will save or be fascinated for 2d4 rounds. Any creature so affected may be interacted with on the wearer's next turn, as if under the effects of the hypnotism spell, as long as the fascination persists. During this time and as a standard action, the wearer may mentally will the face on the codpiece to speak a single request to any affected creatures.
The codpiece's fascination effect is treated as a gaze attack.
