New Magic Items – Baton and Whip-Sword

23 March, 2010

Today we have a couple of support items for the Imperial Kommissar:

Disciplinarian’s Baton

These items are as much symbols of authority as weapons, they range in design from a simple vinewood canes to a tanned elephant’s pizzle to an ornately decorated rod of steel as is appropriate to the culture that created it.

The Disciplinarian’s Baton provides its bearer with a +4 competence bonus to Intimidate checks.  Used in combat, it is treated a +1 light mace and if used in the bearer’s off hand without attacking provides a +1 shield bonus.

Once per day, the possessor of the Disciplinarian’s Baton can give a short speech or set of commands (as a full round action) inspiring all allies within 30′ with a +2 morale bonus to attack rolls and saves for a number of minutes equal to his Charisma modifier (minimum 0) plus 1d4.

Aura moderate enchantment; CL 7th
Slot none; Price 7,500; Weight 2.5 lbs
Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, heroism, scare, shield; Cost 3,750 (+300 xp for D&D)

Whip-Sword of the Taskmaster

These unpleasant weapons are the symbol of authority among the Forceful Order of the Taskmaster, a group of mercenaries and slavers.  The weapon is made of blackened metal and consists of a hilt wrapped in worn dark red leather, at the command of their wielder, it can change from a whip of braided wire to a short sword and back again.

It is a +2 weapon in either form and changing between them is a swift action.  In whip form, it is quite sharp and can inflict damage on beings with up to an armor bonus of +3 or a natural armor bonus of +5.  Displaying a whip-sword provides the owner with a +2 circumstance bonus to intimidate checks.

Aura moderate transmutation; CL 7th
Slot none; Price 10,500; Weight 2.5 lbs
Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, cat’s grace, cause fear, fabricate; Cost 5,250 (+420 xp for D&D)
