Hairpin of Tuning
donated by Kipper Snifferdoo
Description: It appears to be a metal hairpin painted bright red.
History: It was created by a red mage who fell in love with a bard. The
Singer often complained that it was difficult to always find the
proper note when singing. So he created the hairpin of tuning to
assist her in finding the proper note.
How it Works: The Hairpin of tuning, works much like a small tuning fork. If
struck it will emit a crystal clear note of perfect pitch.
On a side note, the Hairpin of Tuning can be used to Open
Locks with a +5% added for success. If opening the lock is
unsuccessful the Hairpin emits a horrible highpitched ring for
one round, that can be heard in a radius of 100 ft.
