Medusa’s Snake Hair
Description: A single snake “hair” of a medusa. For every 24-hour period since the medusa was slain there is a 10% chance that the “hair” will have no effect when used in spellcasting (check after casting). Example: A “hair” from a medusa killed 3 days earlier (72 hours) has a 30% chance of being worthless. After 10 days the “hair” is completely worthless.
