The mask of the High Priest of ancient Erebora. In ancient times, the gods of the Ereborans ceased to answer their prayers, and in desperation, the people turned to the forbidden worship of dragons. Now, of their works, only this mask remains.

Desirability

The mask of the dragon provides an interesting trade-off. Additional magic resistance and see invisible are occasionally very useful, and gaining slaying bonuses from your head slot is very tempting for any character who relies on physical damage, but you give up any AC you may have gained from your helmet slot in the process. This is usually worthwhile, unless you are really low on AC or happen to have another extremely useful artefact hat or helmet.
