Cape of Effulgent Escape
Price 14,000 gp; Aura faint evocation and illusion; CL 3rd; Weight 1 lb.
This shining white cloak is trimmed with golden sunbursts and continuously radiates light (as per the light spell, but only in a 10-foot radius). Twice per day, the wearer can command the cape to erupt in a burst of light, blinding all creatures other than the wearer within 20 feet for 1d4 rounds (Reflex DC 14 negates). After triggering this burst, the wearer becomes invisible (as the invisibility spell, with a duration of 1 minute) and the cape's light is extinguished as long as the wearer is invisible.
Cost 7,000 gp
Cape of the Mountebank
Price 10,800 gp; Aura moderate conjuration; CL 9th; Weight 1 lb.
Once per day on command, this bright red and gold cape allows the wearer to use the magic of the dimension door spell. When he disappears, he leaves behind a cloud of harmless gray smoke, appearing in a similar dramatic fashion at his destination.
Cost 5,400 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, dimension door
Price 200 gp; Aura faint abjuration; CL 1st; Weight 3 lbs.
This silvery cape furls and ripples like a flag with every step its owner takes. As a swift action, the wearer can order the cape to transform into a faint sphere of force that surrounds him on all sides. The field grants the wearer concealment (20% miss chance) against ranged attacks and lasts for 1 minute or until the wearer is missed by a ranged attack due to the power of the cloak, whichever comes first. When the field is used, all magic is lost from the cloak, leaving only a mundane silvery garment.
Cost 100 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, shield
Price 45,000 gp; Aura faint evocation and illusion; CL 3rd; Weight 1 lb.
This garish cloak of red velvet is embroidered with gold-threaded patterns, typically in shapes of sinisterly masked harlequins or other imagery of sinister revelry. The cloak acts like a cloak of the mountebank, but its dimension door power can be used three times per day. Furthermore, once per day the wearer of the cloak can use ethereal jaunt, as per the spell.
Cost 22,500 gp
Cloak of Arachnida
Price 14,000 gp; Aura moderate conjuration and transmutation; CL 6th; Weight 1 lb.
This red and violet silk garment, delicately embroidered with a barely perceptible web-like pattern, gives the wearer the ability to climb as if a spider climb spell had been placed upon her. In addition, the cloak grants her immunity to entrapment by web spells or webs of any sort; she can move in webs at half her normal speed. Once per day, the wearer of this cloak can cast web. She also gains a +2 luck bonus on all Fortitude saves against poison from spiders.
Cost 7,000 gp
Cloak of Displacement, Major
Price 50,000 gp; Aura moderate illusion; CL 7th; Weight 1 lb.
Embroidered with images of falling stars and pale moons, this item appears to be a normal cloak, but on command its magical properties distort and warp light waves. This displacement works just like the displacement spell and lasts for a total of 15 rounds per day, which the wearer can divide up as she sees fit.
Cost 25,000 gp
Cloak of Displacement, Minor
Price 24,000 gp; Aura faint illusion; CL 3rd; Weight 1 lb.
This item appears to be a normal cloak, with a pattern very similar to a major cloak of displacement nocturnal designs, but when worn its magical properties distort and warp light waves. This displacement works similar to the blur spell, granting a 20% miss chance on attacks against the wearer. It functions continually.
Cost 12,000 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, blur
Cloak of Elvenkind
Price 2,500 gp; Aura faint illusion; CL 3rd; Weight 1 lb.
These cloaks of famed elven design are enhanced to reflect the wearer's surroundings, aiding him in blending in with any terrain. When this plain gray cloak is worn with the hood drawn up around the head, the wearer gains a +5 competence bonus on Stealth checks.
Cost 1,250 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, invisibility, creator must be an elf
Cloak of Etherealness
Price 55,000 gp; Aura strong transmutation; CL 15th; Weight 1 lb.
This silvery gray cloak seems to absorb light rather than be illuminated by it. On command, the cloak makes its wearer ethereal (as the ethereal jaunt spell). The effect is dismissible. The cloak works for a total of up to 10 minutes per day. This duration need not be continuous, but it must be used in 1 minute increments.
Cost 27,500 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, ethereal jaunt
Cloak of Fangs
Price 2,800 gp; Aura moderate transmutation; CL 9th; Weight 1 lb.
Wearing this animal-hair cloak grants a +1 resistance bonus on saving throws. Furthermore, the wearer can force its teeth to grow rapidly up to five times per day as a swift action. The oversized teeth last for 1 round, during which time the wearer can make a bite attack. Treat this attack as a primary natural attack that deals 1d6 points of damage (or 1d4 if the wearer is Small). If the wearer already has a bite attack, the damage of that bite attack increases by one step (Bestiary 302).
Cost 1,250 gp
Cloak of Fiery Vanishing
Price 2,600 gp; Aura faint abjuration and illusion; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
This thick leather cloak is charred and blackened around the edges and smells faintly of soot. Once per day, when subject to an effect that deals fire damage, the wearer can spend an immediate action while obscured by the flames to become invisible, leaving behind an illusory pile of ashes and bones, as if he had been slain by the fire effect. The wearer's invisibility and his illusory remains last for 5 rounds or until the wearer attacks any creature. Creatures that study or interact with the ashes can make a DC 11 Will save to disbelieve the illusion, though this does not end the invisibility effect.
Cost 1,300 gp
Cloak of Human Guise
Price 900 gp; Aura faint illusion; CL 1st; Weight 1 lb.
This plain cloak only has any effect when worn by a member of a half-human race, such as a half-orc or half-elf. It alters the wearer's appearance similarly to a hat of disguise, but only to the extent that it conceals or alters the wearer's non-human physical traits so the creature appears fully human. Any feature that is plausibly human remains. For example, a half-orc wearing the cloak loses his green or gray skin color and pointed ears, has no visible tusks, and is otherwise completely able to pass as a human version of his normal self. Likewise, a half-elf wearing the cloak has round ears, humanlike eyes, and no other traits indicating elven ancestry. The wearer has no control over the specific guise, and those familiar with his normal appearance can recognize him in his human guise.
Cost 450 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, disguise self
Cloak of Resistance
Price Varies; Aura faint abjuration; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
+1 bonus 1,000 gp; +2 bonus 4,000 gp; +3 bonus 9,000 gp; +4 bonus 16,000 gp; +5 bonus 25,000 gp

Cloak of the Bat
Price 26,000 gp; Aura moderate transmutation; CL 7th; Weight 1 lb.
Fashioned of dark brown or black cloth, this cloak bestows a +5 competence bonus on Stealth checks. The wearer is also able to hang upside down from the ceiling like a bat.
By holding the edges of the garment, the wearer is able to fly as per the spell (including a +7 bonus on Fly skill checks). If he desires, the wearer can actually polymorph himself into an ordinary bat and fly accordingly (as beast shape III). All possessions worn or carried are part of the transformation. Flying, either with the cloak or in bat form, can be accomplished only in darkness (either under the night sky or in a lightless or near-lightless environment underground). Either of the flying powers is usable for up to 7 minutes at a time, but after a flight of any duration the cloak cannot bestow any flying power for a like period of time.
Cost 13,000 gp
Cloak of the Diplomat
Price 20,000 gp; Aura moderate enchantment; CL 7th; Weight 1 lb.
The forest-green cloak grants a +5 competence bonus on Diplomacy and Sense Motive checks. In addition, once per day, before making a Diplomacy or Sense Motive check, the wearer can decide to call upon the powers of the cloak to roll twice and take the better result. Finally, the wearer of this cloak can adjust a creature's attitude up to three steps when using Diplomacy, instead of the normal limit of two steps. However, the cloak's power does have one drawback. Should the wearer ever fail a Diplomacy checks made to adjust a creature's attitude by 5 or more, the creature's attitude is reduced by two steps instead of one.
Cost 10,000 gp
Cloak of the duskwalker
Price 10,000 gp; Aura faint illusion; CL 3rd; Weight 1 lb.
This dark, velvety cloak billows with a dramatic flourish in its wearer's wake. The cloak grants its wearer low-light vision.

While this darkness is active, the cloak also grants the wearer darkvision 60 feet as well as low-light vision.
Cost 5,000 gp
Cloak of the Hedge Wizard
Price 2,500 gp; Aura faint, school based on cloak type ; CL 1st; Weight 1 lb.

Cost 1,125 gp
Cloak of the Manta Ray
Price 7,200 gp; Aura moderate transmutation; CL 9th; Weight 1 lb.
This cloak appears to be made of leather until the wearer enters salt water. At that time, the cloak of the manta ray adheres to the individual, and he appears nearly identical to a manta ray (as the beast shape II spell, except that it allows only manta ray form). He gains a +3 natural armor bonus, the ability to breathe underwater, and a swim speed of 60 feet, like a real manta ray.
The cloak also allows the wearer to attack with a sting ray's tail spine, dealing 1d6 points of damage. This attack can be used in addition to any other attack the character has, using his highest melee attack bonus. The wearer can release his arms from the cloak without sacrificing underwater movement if so desired.
Cost 3,600 gp
Cloak of the Scuttling Rat
Price 6,000 gp; Aura faint transmutation; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
This unassuming cloak initially appears to be made of plain leather. When the wearer speaks the command word, however, the cloak of the scuttling rat wraps itself around her, transforming her into a dire rat as if using beast shape I. The wearer can remain in dire rat form for up to 5 minutes per day. This duration need not be consecutive, but it must be used in 1-minute increments.
Cost 3,000 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, beast shape I
Price 10,000 gp; Aura moderate transmutation ; CL 7th; Weight 1 lb.
This ruffled silk cloak is incredibly durable despite its soft, delicate construction. Anytime the wearer falls asleep (whether the sleep is natural or brought on by a magical effect), the cloak immediately transforms into sticky strands that envelop the wearer's body, hardening into a solid silk cocoon. While wrapped in the cocoon the wearer gains a +4 enhancement bonus to natural armor and is protected from critical hits and sneak attacks as if subject to the light fortification armor ability (25% chance for normal damage on a critical hit). The cocoon opens and transforms back into a cloak once the wearer awakens.
Cost 5,000 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, vermin shape I (Ultimate Magic)
Price 15,600 gp; Aura faint abjuration and necromancy; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
A favored cloak of rangers, this cloak is a patchwork of hides and fur.

Furthermore, while the wearer is resting he regains twice his Hit Dice in hit points for 8 hours of rest instead of the typical 1 hit point per Hit Die. When taking a full 24 hours of rest, the character regains 5 times his Hit Dice in hit points instead of twice his Hit Dice in hit points.
Cost 7,800 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, endure elements
Cowardly Crouching Cloak
Price 1,800 gp; Aura faint abjuration ; CL 1st; Weight 4 lbs.
This nondescript gray cloak has a hood that can fit over the wearer's entire face. The wearer can, as a move action, cover his face and drop to a huddling crouch. Any creature seeking to directly attack him while he does this must make a DC 11 Will save to do so (as the sanctuary spell). The wearer cannot see or take any actions while crouching. This makes him effectively blind, with all the normal penalties, but not helpless. The wearer can end his crouch simply by standing up or moving.
Cost 900 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, sanctuary
Price 14,350 gp; Aura moderate necromancy ; CL 7th; Weight 8 lbs.
These black iron pauldrons are studded with jagged spikes of various lengths. Demonspike pauldrons act as +2 armor spikes and also deal 1d2 bleed damage on a successful grapple attack or melee attack made with the pauldrons. If these pauldrons are worn with normal armor spikes, increase the damage done by the armor spikes to 1d6 (Small) or 1d8 (Medium), and use the greater of the two enhancement bonuses to attack and damage—either from the armor spikes (if any) or the demonspike pauldrons.
Cost 7,175 gp
Price 7,000 gp; Aura moderate transmutation; CL 7th; Weight 1 lb.
Large eagle feathers decorate the back and arms of this magnificent cape. Should the cape's wearer fall more than 5 feet, the cape spreads out behind the wearer and she gently drifts to the ground. This acts exactly like a feather fall spell for the wearer only. Once per day, if the wearer grasps the edges of the cape and spreads her arms, she transforms into an eagle (as per the beast shape I spell, except that it allows only eagle form and the wearer gains the eagle's full fly speed of 80 feet). This effect lasts for 10 minutes but can be ended prematurely as a standard action. In addition, while in eagle form, the wearer gains a +5 competence bonus on Perception checks.
Cost 3,500 gp
Price 14,000 gp; Aura moderate abjuration ; CL 6th; Weight 1 lb.
The abjurations woven into this woolen poncho not only defend against gunfire, but also insulate the wearer from dangerous magic. The wearer gains a +2 luck bonus to touch AC.

When the wearer uses this ability, he must fall prone.

Price 32,500 gp; Aura faint transmutation ; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
This reversible multicolored cape marks the wearer's flamboyant audacity when turned with its bright colors outward, granting a +5 competence bonus on Bluff checks.

Furthermore, the wearer is subject to a constant effect like that of the spell liberating command regardless of the cape's current facing.
Cost 16,250 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, liberating command
Price 7,500 gp; Aura faint transmutation ; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
Usually made from the skins of giant serpents, these cloaks are designed to help rangers, hunters, and trackers blend in with and travel quickly through the areas they are most familiar with. If the wearer has the favored terrain class ability and is traveling through one of his favored terrains, once per day he can transform himself into an animal native to that environment. This works identically to the beast shape I spell, save that it is limited to creatures native to the environment (as defined in the appropriate Bestiary entry or per the GMs discretion). This effect lasts for 10 minutes per day. The duration need not be continuous, but it must be used in 1-minute increments.
Cost 3,750 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, beast shape I
Price 19,200 gp; Aura moderate transmutation; CL 7th; Weight 1 lb.
This billowing white cape renders the wearer almost invisible the moment she is submerged in salt water, granting her concealment (20% miss chance) so long as she remains entirely submerged. The wearer can breathe underwater and gains a swim speed of 20 ft. While the wearer is submerged, the cape surrounds her with tiny stinging tentacles. Any creature that ends its turn adjacent to the wearer takes 1 point of electricity damage and must succeed at a DC 16 Fortitude saving throw or be sickened for 1 round. The sickened effect is a poison effect.
Cost 9,600 gp
Price 40,000 gp; Aura faint necromancy; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
These massive pauldrons take the shape of a pair of clenched fists made of beaten bronze. They bestow a +4 bonus on CMD, and grant the wearer the ferocity ability (Bestiary 300). On command, the wearer can increase its size, as though subject to an enlarge person spell, and can revert to regular size with another command. Three times per day, as an immediate action after the pauldrons' wearer kills an opponent, the wearer gains the benefit of the deadly juggernaut spell for 1 minute.
Cost 20,000 gp
Price 12,000 gp; Aura moderate transmutation; CL 10th; Weight 1 lb.
Made from a single male lion's coat with the mane surrounding its hood, the lion cloak is an impressive sight. A creature wearing the cloak gains a +2 resistance bonus on saving throws made against mind-affecting and fear effects and a +2 circumstance bonus on Intimidate checks. Once per day, the wearer can pull the hood over her head, assuming the form of a lion (as the beast shape II spell, except that it allows only lion form) for up to 10 minutes. If the wearer has the smite class feature, she can use this power more than once per day by expending uses of her smite; at most she can take the lion form as many times as she has smites plus one additional time. While in this lion form the wearer cannot use its normal smite ability.
Cost 6,000 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, beast shape II
Mantle of Spores
Price 13,400 gp; Aura faint necromancy; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
This mantle grants the wearer a +4 resistance bonus on saving throws against disease.

Creatures adjacent to the wearer take 1d6 points of damage from the spores, plus 1d3 points of damage per round for 3 rounds as the spores grow into fuzzy green mold. After these rounds the mold becomes harmless, and can be washed away with a minute of scrubbing.

Cost 6,700 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, contagion
Price 1,000 gp; Aura faint transmutation; CL 3rd; Weight 1/4 lb.
These thick leather cords wrap around the wearer's biceps and shoulders. When worn, they make the wearer's muscles appear larger than normal. The wearer treats his Strength score as 8 higher than normal when determining his carrying capacity. This bonus does not apply to combat, breaking items, or any other Strength-related rolls, it only contributes to the amount of equipment or material the wearer can carry.
Cost 500 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, bull's strength
Pauldrons of the Bull
Price 10,000 gp; Aura faint abjuration; CL 5th; Weight 3 lbs.

Pauldrons of the Watchful Lion
Price 10,800 gp; Aura faint necromancy; CL 5th; Weight 3 lbs.
These steel and brass pauldrons feature two brass lion heads, one on each shoulder. Twice a day as an immediate action when a creature successfully makes an Acrobatics check to move through the wearer's threatened area or its space without provoking an attack of opportunity, a shadowy lion can animate from one of the pauldrons and attack that creature. The attack uses the wearer's base attack bonus + Dexterity modifier and attacks the target's touch AC. On a hit, the lion deals 2d6 points of piercing damage (×2 critical).
Cost 5,400 gp
Price 17,200 gp; Aura faint illusion and transmutation; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
This short black cloak grants its wearer a +8 competence bonus on Slight of Hand checks. Furthermore, as a full-round action, the cloak can be removed and placed on an single object that takes up a 5-foot square or less and weighs 100 lbs. or less, at which point the object disappears and is stored within an extradimensional space within the cloak. The object can remain in the cloak for no more than 1 hour, at which point it falls out of the cloak in a square adjacent to the cloak or its wearer. The wearer can also command the cloak to dispel the object into an adjacent square.
Cost 8,600 gp
Price 1,500 gp; Aura faint transmutation; CL 1st; Weight 1 lb.
One side of this reversible gray hooded cape is exquisitely embroidered and richly decorated, while the other appears shabby and worn. On command, by passing the edge of the cloak over her face, the wearer may remove a mundane disguise (one applied with the Disguise skill) and store it in the cloak. This does not change the cloak's appearance in any way. Once a disguise is stored in the cloak, it can be reapplied to the wearer who placed it within the cloak on command, using the original result of the Disguise check. The cloak can store up to three disguises at once, and any wearer of the cloak can discard any number of disguises within the cloak as a free action.
Cost 750 gp
Price 6,000 gp; Aura faint transmutation; CL 5th; Weight 1 lb.
This shawl of delicate lace can be activated once per day to grant the benefits of the fins to feet spell, transforming the wearer's lower fins or appendages into feet whenever he is on dry land—unless dismissed, this effect lasts for 5 hours.
Cost 3,000 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, fins to feet
Shawl of Life-Keeping
Price 1,000 gp; Aura faint conjuration ; CL 3rd; Weight 1 lb.
This magical shawl is woven from silken, diaphanous material. Once per day, the wearer can speak a command word to transfer some of her life energy into the shawl (up to 10 hit points). If she is wearing the shawl and is reduced to –1 hit points or below, the shawl immediately heals her an amount equal to the number of hit points stored in the shawl. This healing cannot prevent the wearer from being killed. The life energy stored in the shawl lasts for 24 hours or until it heals the wearer, whichever comes first. If the shawl is destroyed, the stored life energy is lost.
While the shawl is storing a creature's life energy, it retains a connection to that creature. If another creature holds the shawl in its hand, the creature whose life energy is stored in the shawl takes a –2 penalty on Fortitude and Reflex saving throws against all effects from the current bearer of the shawl.
Cost 500 gp
Shawl of the Crone
Price 16,000 gp; Aura faint transmutation; CL 3rd; Weight 1 lb.
The yarn making up this knitted gray wrap is frayed and tattered. As soon as a creature puts on the shawl, she immediately takes the form of a venerable female of her race (regardless of the wearer's actual gender) and remains so until the shawl is removed. Though this is an actual physical transformation, the wearer does not experience any infirmities due to advanced age, including penalties to her physical attributes, nor does she gain any bonuses to her mental attributes. The wearer also gains a +4 circumstance bonus on any Charisma-based check intended to make her appear friendly, harmless, helpless, or otherwise in need of assistance or deserving of proper respect for someone of her apparent age. This bonus increases to +8 when directed against children. The wearer also counts as a hag for the purposes of forming a covey, but this covey must always include at least one actual hag.
Cost 8,000 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, alter self
Price 1,000 gp; Aura faint abjuration; CL 4th; Weight 1 lb.
The wearer of this rough, gray cloak can, as a move action, grasp the garment's edge and cause it to harden. The wearer can use the hardened edge it as if it were a masterwork light wooden shield. Using the cloak in this fashion imposes no armor check penalty, but does impose a 5% arcane spell failure chance. The edge of the cloak can be dropped and made pliant again as a free action. Shield enhancement bonuses and special abilities can be added to the cloak as if it were a masterwork shield.
Cost 500 gp
