Made of a flat, matte-black cloth and trimmed with gray, this simple hooded cloak bears a sword-and-bow insignia on it but no other markings. These cloaks are given as gifts to certain black cloak hunters for various reasons. The hunter may have performed admirably in a hunt, or saved innocents at the cost of his quarry. Few black cloak hunters form attachments to other people, but on the rare occasion that a veteran hunter becomes fond of a particular recruit, he sometimes gives his lesser cloak away to one when he receives his Greater Cloak.
In the hands of anyone else, the cloak has no function and is a simple cloak. In the hands of a black cloak hunter, however, it gains certain beneficial properties.
First, the cloak provides a +2 circumstance bonus on all Survival checks made by the hunter.
Second, the cloak grants a +1 resistance bonus on all saving throws against the spells and abilities of the hunter’s Hated Enemy. This bonus also functions when the hunter is affected by his Oath of Vengeance ability.
Finally, the cloak grants a +1 Deflection bonus to the hunter’s Armor Class against attacks from his Hated Enemy.
