Stealing Stones: Replacement Hat Trap

Effect spell effect (geas/quest compels the target to replace the touched hat with a brand new, exact replica)

A particular zwerc loved his hats and hated the thought of anyone touching them—or, Amber Roads forbid, wearing them. After having too many chapeaus spoiled by the prying fingers of well-meaning but clueless guests, he came up with a clever solution: the replacement hat trap. By taking a few of his favorite hats and casting geas/quest on them, anyone that even touched one of his hats immediately became compelled to replace it with an exact replica (ensuring that, at least, his finery wouldn’t be soiled by others). Every now and then a replacement hat trap appears; no one knows exactly how they get there, but rumors abound revolving around ancient dwarven spirits, hat gods, and even more outlandish explanations.
