The Ashmask is a holy relic of the Tribunal Temple, which can not be taken by the Nerevarine. It sits in the Gnisis Temple. When activated, a message about a feat of generosity that Vivec accomplished appears: When a farmer fell ill and wanted to receive a cure from the shrine, but could not afford the gold needed for a blessing. Vivec then cured him for free, and declared that anyone not able to afford a blessing wouldn't need to worry, and left his mask as a symbol of that statement.
The Nerevarine must journey to Gnisis to receive the shrine's blessing. During the "Pilgrimages of the Seven Graces," the Nerevarine must visit and make a donation at the shrine. This will teach the Nerevarine Vivec's Touch, a unique spell which confers Cure Blight Disease and Cure Common Disease on touch when cast.
- The Ashmask on display is actually a fake. There is a hidden room with the actual mask, which the Nerevarine can use to receive blessings.
- Ironically, Temple shrines will not let the Nerevarine receive a blessing if they cannot afford it.
