Robe of Vecna.
The robe of Vecna was a garment once worn by the powerful lich Vecna, who achieved deification among the people of Oerth. It absorbed a great amount of magical energy from the powerful undead being, though it possessed but a fraction of the power that remained within the remnants of his undead form.
When worn, the robe granted the wearer significant protection from magical spells and spell-like abilities. Furthermore, it decreased the time required for them to cast either arcane or divine spells, to significant degree.
While it was unknown how the robe of Vecna appeared on Toril, it came into the possession of a merchant named Deirdre during the 14th century DR. Sometime prior to the Year of the Gauntlet, 1369 DR she began selling her wares in the Adventurer Mart of Athkatla.
