Magic Item: Lyre of Mal-odiousness

This magical lyre was once the prized possession of the famous philanthropist bard Zagreus. It is enchanted to magically enhance performances and bestows a +5 circumstance bonus to perform checks while being played.

It was buried with him long ago. A dastardly rake named Jax plundered his tomb to steal the lyre and became cursed in doing so. Now, any time anyone possessing it attempts to gain monetarily they find themselves frustrated. This manifests in various ways but is generally a -10 circumstance penalty on their social skill checks to do so; negotiations turn sour, diplomacy checks almost always fail etc.

Minor transmutation; caster level 5th; Create wondrous item, eagle's splendor; Price: 3,125 gp; Weight 5 lbs.
