The Hand Cone of Clarity is a custom item crafted for Scanlan Shorthalt by Tiberius Stormwind.


When spells or bardic abilities are cast through the Hand Cone, it increases the spell DC by 1, according to a Tweet by Matt Mercer.[1]



When Scanlan forced an efreeti in the City of Brass to roll 21 on a save or end up under the effects of Dominate Monster, Matthew Mercer warned other DMs of the dangers of giving out items that increase spell save DC.[2]
