Tuesday Magic Item – Storm-Cutting Glaive

21 November, 2017

Sharp enough to cut magic“Charge!” yelled the knight, his men-at-arms and mercenaries followed, some more rapidly than others.

“Charging wizards is not the best for our health,” muttered Voddick.

“They said they had protection,” said Gollaon, “and we are about to find out.”  He gestured to a warmage crafting a spell.

The mercenaries dove for cover as the mage unleashed a bolt of fire.  As it reached the knight, he reached in a blur of motion, his polearm cutting through the fire, weakening the blaze but not entirely dispersing it.  The remanant of the flame washed over the pair.  “That was surprisingly effective.”

“Hope he can keep it up.”

Storm-Cutting Glaive

These pole arms are decorated with elemental wards and often with other symbolism depending on the who it was made for.  The wood of the shaft shows damage from where it has been burned or otherwise damaged but intense energies but its structural integrity remains intact.

14 November, 2017

“Thief!” yelled the merchant grabbing as the slim form now running from his stall.

Voddick lunged for the thief but grabbed only air as they simply were not there.  He looked around confused.

“There!” shouted Gollaon winging a peach pit off the back of the thief’s head.  The thief looked back with a bit of wounded pride and then leapt up onto a rooftop and was gone.

“Unfair,” complained Voddick.

“But successful.”

Voddick nodded ruefully.

Hop, Skip and Jump Medallion

These medallions are usually colorful, often they could be considered garish, and decorated with images of athletes or animals.

Tuesday Magic Item – Breadboard of Plenty

7 November, 2017

Best thing since . . .“While it is not my preferred food, bread is a true staple,” said Voddick smearing butter across the hunk of bread.

“Some say it is the core of a proper life, but I agree with you, not what I would build my diet around,” Gollaon said, spreading jam across his slice.

“Foolish sell-swords,” said Madam Sugarfoot cutting off another slice.  “Bread is a good food but at its best among others and better yet when shared among friends.”

“Truth,” agreed Voddick.

Breadboard of Plenty

These breadboard are sturdily made of woods harvested from fruitful orchard, with the mark of the marker carved or branded on the back.  They are essential indestructible when used for their proper purpose and extremely durable when used for anything else.

Join the fight!

As I have posted before, Shadowfist is my favorite among the collectable-ish card games.  Sharing its HK action movie sensibilities (along with its background) with the superb Feng Shui RPG.

Inner Kingdom Games has an ongoing Kickstarter for the new Shadowfist: A Better Tomorrow expansion.  Like all card gamers, I like new cards and hope that you do too.

If you are new to Shadowfist, you can include various starters products as part of your pledge at a very good price.
