February next with a look back to January

31 January, 2019

Seeking a purification?January is ending as the year moves ever onward.  Hopefully things will warm up soon as it is quite cold here and, I am told, across much of the US.

Our month of February gets its name from Latin term februum, which means purification, via the purification ritual Februa performed at this time of year.  The Romans considered February an ill-omened month which is why it is only twenty-eight days long.  For this month we return to the theme of curses, cursed items, ill-fortune and, perhaps, defense against such terrible things.  As usual, suggestions, comments and ideas are welcome.

The Sea of Stars will also be hosting the RPG Blog Carnival for February on the theme of Making Magic Wondrous.  Please join in!

What was published on the journal in January, 2019, was:

Article:

Did the Gods build the Sea of Stars?

New Magic Items:

Another Year Amulet, a price will be paid for a year of health, who will pay it?

Boots of the Winter Lords, travel on skis.

Journeyman’s Boots, walk to your work.

Raven Cloak, gaze through a raven’s eyes.

Spying Songbird, keep an eye on things.

Review:
