Tuesday Magic Item – Terribin’s Sling

6 August, 2013

With cool grace, Terribin sent stone after stone into the advancing ranks of the enemy.  Dodging back through the outskirts of the village, he keep up a steady rain of stones.   His shots striking true more often than not and felling more than a score of the invaders before they had made it to the town square.

It was enough, not expecting to face organized resistance and having already lost too many.  They broke and ran, taking their wounded with them.  The villagers harried them until they were gone beyond the fields and Terribin was carried back on their shoulders to great acclaim.
