Pipes of Painful Truth
Unique Wondrous Item (Instrument)_
These pipes function as normal bagpipes when used unattuned, though the melodies they play always seem a bit sinister.
Pipes rendered from the remains of Bolag a bearded devil and the former headsman of Glasia, Lord of the Sixth, and daughter of Aesmodues.
They are intelligent, imbued with the soul and sentience of Bolag, who can compel any sentient creature capable of speech to truthfully answer a question. This power only works once on each creature.
Beyond this power, no known abilities are documented. Because of Bolag’s resident soul, he can buffer the effects of Heavy Magic, at the expense of awakening the soul further.
