Tuesday Magic Item – Harness of the Night

24 May, 2011

They came in the night, riding huge nearly silent bats and struck by surprise.  They killed the watchers and stole away with treasures and valuables before anyone realized they had come.  Now everyone lives in mortal fear that they will return watching the sky at night for any sign of them.

These harnesses are made of night black leather with blued steel fittings chased with silver.  They make almost no noise, even when jangled.
