Tuesday Magic Item – Flashing Spear16 November, 2010
Three-Flawless-Strikes Wen wove a web of razor steel with his spear, those that tried to close with him found his name was well earned as his spear sought the weak points in their armor and their defenses. Those that managed to get close found things were no easier as his spear was always there, piecing and blocking.
These weapons are prized by spear fighters, their leaf bladed points are razor sharp and decorated with geometric patterns inlaid in bronze. The shaft is flexible yet strong made of a beautiful dark grained wood with bronze reinforcing the shaft below the blade and a butt spike of steel.
The flashing spear can change between short and long spear as a free action, in either form it is a +2 spear with a x3 Critical multiplier. When using the flashing spear in a charge, or set against a charge, it gains a +1 equipment bonus to damage. Against foes who do not know what the spear can do, its wielder gains a +2 bonus to initiative.
