These bone masks were first thought to be worn by the Purraj tribe of the Desolation (who were destroyed during the building of the great road) but the recent discovery of several remote groups of Lortmil wild men wearing similar masks has drawn into question the exact source and meaning of these items . Donning the mask deals one point of Constitution that cannot be healed so long as the mask is worn . The mask grants damage reduction 5/- but if the wearer drops to negative hit points they die instantly and they are subject to a Trap the Soul spell that contains the soul in the mask . While a soul is contained within the mask the damage reduction increases to 8/- .
