The war mask is a tribal clothing item. It provides minor protection, as well as increasing pain threshold, allowing the wearer to take more damage before crumpling. War masks can be purchased from traders, crafted (by tribal factions), or stripped from tribal raiders.
War masks are a cheap source of armor for tribespeople in the early game, if you have a good craftsman. While they doesn't give much protection, the increase in pain shock threshold helps your tribespeople stay longer in the fight before giving in to pain.
Wood is reasonably easy to obtain in most biomes, so obtaining materials shouldn't be too much of an issue. Rather, the greater issue is having to divert labor to obtaining the wood and crafting it.
War masks can be equipped on Wimp colonists to allow them to function under certain illnesses which would normally surpass their pain threshold.

Ideoligions allow the selection of styles which then change the texture of the certain items and buildings when constructed by the colony. These style variants can be crafted if the colony has the selected style, or can be looted from raiders from factions with the requisite style.
