The circlet of the third eye is a blue-white headband, crafted from metal, which bears the icon of a single eye. When activated by the warforged, an actual eye sprouts from the icon, emerging on top of a six-inch-long eyestalk. This eye glows a bright yellow, and can be seen even in the darkest of shadows. In addition, the eyestalk can extend up to 10 feet.[1]

3rd Edition MechanicsEdit

The circlet of the third eye grants the wearer both darkvision within a range of 60 feet and the effects of a continuous see invisibility spell. The eye can function for a total of one hour per day. This time does not need to be continuous, but each activation of the eye lasts at least 10 minutes.

The eye and its stalk can be targeted by an attack. The eyestalk has an AC of 20, and has 15 hit points. If the eyestalk is destroyed, the eyestalk disappears immediately and cannot be summoned for another week. In addition,when active, the eyestalk's bright glow imposes a -5 penalty to the warforged's Hide check.[1]
