Upgrade and replacement of Shroud of the Holy Dead. Intended for PLs. Note: the weight adds to the flavor, but is meant to be more than mere inconvenience: non-strength based robe users will need to deal with possible encumberance. 250 is not "much", but it adds up.
A bit too much :S Wearing the Ely shroud you sacrifice a item slot for good phis imms, this one instead takes care of phis DR and soak as well, along with specials, and is not even restricted to staffmasters.
