Tuesday Magic Item – Jinete Javelin

25 November, 2015

Voddick took cover behind the ruined wall and worked the lever to recock his crossbow.  “I am getting tired of these horsemen.”  A javelin flew over his head.  “Very tired.”

You just cannot see the javelinGollaon drew back his bow and released an arrow.  “I fear we will be out of bolts and arrows well before we are out of foes.”

“We could try throwing the javelins back,” suggested Voddick slotting another bolt.

“They are enchanted I suspect, they will not be of much use to us.”

“Well damn.”

Jinete Javelin

These well made javelins have shafts of dyed wood and the heads are often marked with the symbol of the group they are made for.

A jinete javelin is a +1 javelin that gains the distance quality and an additional +1 damage when used from a moving mount.  After one attack it loses all magic, the shaft warps and it is treated as if it were broken.

Aura faint transmutation; CL 5th
Slot none; Price 177; Weight 2 lbs
Construction Requirements
Craft Magic Arms and Armor, bull’s strength, mending; Cost 85 +7 for the javelin

Notes: Inspired by the historical Jienete, mounted Spanish skirmishers.

  1. Javelins don’t get there due in frpgs. Maybe it’s the dungeon focus? Anyway, good to see a magical one.


    • Which is odd. You would think a javelin would be more suited to a dungeon (since it can double as a melee weapon) than a bow.


  2. Clever mages! Anticipating enemy tactics. They must have had a competent military advisor.
