girdle. I had it from a Stygian priest. It will aid you,
though it failed me at last," muttered Khemsa.
Conan stared down at the girdle. The hair of which it was woven was not horsehair. He was convinced it was woven of the thick black tresses of a woman. Set in the thick mesh were tiny jewels such as he had never seen before. The buckle was strangely made, in the form of a golden serpent head, flat, wedge-shaped and scaled with curious art. A strong shudder shook Conan as he handled it, and he turned as though to throw it over the precipice; then he hesitated, and finally buckled it around his waist.
~The People of the Black Circle, by Robert E. Howard
The girdle of Khemsa, a Stygian wonderous item, provides the wearer with luck and spell resistance. It provides luck in that if there is a choice of targets, an opponent will choose someone other than the wearer (it is of no aid if the opponent targets the wearer specifically - just if the choice is pretty much at random). It provides spell resistance of 30 to the wearer.
