Tuesday Magic Item – Ring of Coins

14 September, 2021

Ring in process“That is a useful way to carry one’s money,”said Gollaon watching the coins appear below the buyer’s ring and fall into the merchant’s waiting hands.

“Yes and harder to steal than a pouch,”noted Voddick. “And even if you could, the coins can only be returned by their owner.”

“Wise precaution,” mused Gollaon.

Tuesday Magic Item – Mind Robbing Blade

7 September, 2021

A stab to the . . . mind?Voddick adjusted his grip on the throwing axe.  “What is this person seeking, randomly stabbing people and then fleeing.”

“It is not random,” said Gollaon while running their fingertips along the hilts of the throwing daggers hanging from their belt.

“How do you mean?”

“They are following a chain from what to what, I am not sure,” said Gollaon.  “But each of the victims knows each other, sometimes in a tangential fashion.  But the knife-person is seeking something . . . or someone.”

“Perhaps we can ask them . . .”

Mind Robbing Blade

This dagger is made of fine steel, the blacked hilt is decorated with twisting faces that change from time to time.  Even just holding the dagger, one hears distant whispers, but nothing that can be clearly distinguished. Read the rest of this entry ?

Tuesday Magic Item – Vasizek’s Painting Kit

31 August, 2021

What are you paining?Voddick tilted his head and studied the painting.  “Not my usual style but it conveys itself well.”

Gollaon nodded.  “It is unusual, more . .  capturing the idea of the thing than the actual thing itself.  Very intriguing.”

“Its it nicely essential is it not,” agreed Voddick.  “If we had a fixed abode, I would be tempted to purchase it.”

“But, alas, we are but wanderers with out a home, venturing upon . . .”

“No need to wax poetic, I know all too well what our lifestyle entails.”

10 August, 2021

TeaSetVoddick inhaled the aroma of the brewing tea.  “I am not normally much of a tea drinker, but today, it seems just right.”

Gollaon nodded.  “It is like being at home as a child.  I can almost see my mother.”

“Honey and cream?” asked Gran Sugarfoot.  “You two spend so much time out and about.  You need your moments of comfort.”

“Just honey,” said Voddick.

“Both please and thank you again for your kindness,” said Gollaon.

Tuesday Magic Item – Old Irik’s Ring of Bargains

3 August, 2021

Medieval_ring,_Bone_finger_ringVoddick watched from the corner of the room as the money lender went about his business.  Gollaon joined him with a mug of ale for Voddick and wine for himself. “Why are you watching that man so intently, my friend.”

“My grandmother told me of a money lender who made magical deals on the side, she considered him deeply evil,” Voddick’s hand wrapped around the mug.  “That man matches his description perfectly, down to the tarnished silver and bone ring on his left hand.”

Gollaon started a little but managed to avoid looking in that direction.  Rather, they just casually leaned back and surveyed the room.  “I have heard of such a ring and its owner.  A maker of dark bargains who has lived well beyond their allotted span.  We must be careful.”

Old Irik’s Ring of Bargains

This ring is made of carved bone decorated with silver, tarnished with age.  Looking closely, the silver seems to spell out “a deal is a deal” or similar sentiment in the reader’s native language.  The tarnish cannot be removed from the silver, no matter how much it is polished.

Tuesday Magic Item – Comet Bridle

27 July, 2021

Bridle“Are you certain this will work?” ask Voddick for at least the eighth time.

“Yes, yes, I have been thoroughly instructed in how it functions,” Gollaon replied holding up the bridle.

“Does it have to be done on a clifftop?”

“Honestly, I suspect not, but it is so much more dramatic this way!”

Comet Bridle

These bridles are made of leather from exotics beasts, lavishly decorated metal work and the bit is of strong metal often dragon steel or godsmetal.  The decoration are usually astrological or geometric in design.  The whole thing is immensely strong and difficult to damage.  The owner of the bridle has the ability to catch and ride a comet across the night sky to (somewhere near) their final destination.

Tuesday Magic Item – Chess Set of the Spy Master

20 July, 2021

Chess“The Count seems particularly focused on that chess set,” said Voddick.  “There is even a guard when he is not playing.”

“I suspect it serves as more than just a chess board,” said Gollaon.  “I hear rumors that the Count is the chief intelligencer of the Court.  I suspect the chess set figures into his plans in some way.”

“I have heard of such, there were rumors of such a set in my home city.”

“I suspect that one would have been more ornate, this one is surprisingly practical.”

Chess Set of the Spy Master

These chess sets are of varying styles but always made of hard woods, carved stone or metal.  Some are very ornate, other are simple traveling sets but they all are tough to damage.  They can use any board and some have ones that are built to compliment the set. Read the rest of this entry ?

“Indeed and well armed too, those sword are made by a master smith,” said Voddick.

“Well, a ruler should be able to outfit his guards in style.”
