Shifter braids are small braided loops worn as headbands. Each is crafted of a different material and grants a different special ability to a shifter who activates the braid in the same round that he begins shifting (a swift action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity). The benefit granted by the braid lasts for as long as the character remains shifting unless stated otherwise, and a shifter braid is consumed once used. Shifter braids that function only for characters with a specific shifter trait or other ability offer no benefit to any other wearer.

Braid of Dire Shifting: When activated, this thin loop of braided leather increases the shifter by one size category, as if subject to an enlarge person spell.

Braid of the Dream Path: When activated, this thin loop of translucent silk renders the shifter ethereal for 1 round. This braid only functions for shifters with the dreamsight trait.

Braid of Silver: When activated, this thin loop of braided silver wire allows the shifter’s natural weapons to be treated as silver weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

Braid of Spellstrike: When activated, this thin loop of braided treebark allows the shifter to cast one of his prepared divine spells as part of the same swift action that activates the braid. Any spell cast in this manner must be no higher than 3rd level, must have a casting time of 1 standard action or less, and may only target the shifter. For example, a 5th-level shifter druid with the longtooth trait could cast greater magic fang on his bite attack when activating this item, as long as he had that spell prepared. Casting a spell in this manner does not provoke attacks of opportunity.
