Tuesday Magic Item – Sipahi’s Scimitar

28 June, 2011

The mobile reserve waited near to the commander, ready to act when required, horses and weapons at the ready.  The commander watched and then, just as the enemy army bent, he ordered them into action.  Their scimitars flashed in the sun as the charged into combat.

Sipahi

These swords are well made with watered steel blades and grips usually made of polished brass wrapped with brightly colored cording.

A Sipahi’s Scimitar is a simple +1 scimitar unless used from horseback, then it is a +2 keen scimitar.  The scimitar is never lost and never wounds it wielder if and when he falls, or is dismounted, from a horse.

Aura moderate transmutation; CL 9th
Slot none; Price 9,815; Weight 4 lbs
Construction
Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, bull’s strength, cat’s grace, spider climb; Cost 4,750 + 315 for the scimitar (+380 xp for D&D)

Notes– A another focused weapon for the mounted combatant, perhaps too specialized for a player character but useful for enemy horsemen.

Random Demon Name Generator – Least and Lesser Demons (version 1)

28 June, 2011

Finally had an idea for a random generator.  The demon names in most popular fantasy RPGs are rather dull, I like the crazy sorts of demon names you see in HK Action films (and Shadowfist) like Seven Evils, the Eater of Fortune and Four Burning Fists.  So, the following generator is suppose to generate those sort of wired descriptive names, now this is 1- the first version and using only initial thoughts ripped from my own mind, 2- the weakest demons (so there names do not get to be all that cool).  If people like this and I get inspired, I will move up through the ranks of demonic being and wrap it all up into a PDF at the end.  So, feedback and suggestions welcome!

Let us give it a try, instead of a dretch, we have a least demon: rolls a D4 = 3, [C] [A] of  [B], so table C, descriptor roll D8 = 3, Corrupted, on Table A the D20 = 10, Slave and the Aspect D8 =2, so instead we have a Corrupted Slave of Darkness!  Nifty.

Now, for a lesser demon, rather than a rutterkin:  D12 roll = 6, [D] of [E], simple, rolling on Title table D, the D10 = 4, Hunter/Stalker and the Aspect from table E, D10 roll = 7, (Eternal) Night, so we have a Stalker of Eternal Night.  That sounds pretty cool too.
