    The Curse
    Once you wear the Hood of Voice you are robbed of your voice and hearing, permanently. Your ears and vocal cords are removed, and the area around your ears and vocal cords become charred and blackened. The this effect is attached to your body and soul. Nothing has the power to reverse it. The only way for you to be able to speak and hear is by wearing the Hood. The Hood is not bound to you in any way, so you are capable of losing it, having it stolen, or selling it. You cannot be forced, coerced, mind controlled, or tricked into wearing The Hood.

    If you are going to shorten my name go with "Akaz" instead of "Aka" its less confusing.
    Also I may End up Capatalizing the BEginning of words, or mispelleing them interly.
    Think nothing of it, I just REALLY suck at typing.(Those examples were on purpose, though.)

    So you need to speak to use the hood but you can't speak until you do use the hood?

    Also, you can only speak once/week so it's really hard to use the other N.I.N.E. artifacts, assuming they work the same way as the hood and the blindfold.

    Its meant to be, you only have the ability to speak normally while wearing the hood, and the god speak is its special ability.

    See, the wording on the blindfold makes it sound as though you need to use My Vision Is Exceptional to see, not just be wearing the blindfold, so I assumed a similar thing applied to the hood - indeed, "Using" the hood implies that you have to, well, use it rather than just having it on your head. Replace it with "Wearing"?
