New Magic Item – Elemental Candle

13 September, 2017

Let it light the wayVoddick watched the casting of the candles with intense focus.

Gollaon leaned in.  “It is interesting but not that interesting.”

“You are wrong, my friend, this is a brilliant use of elementalism.”

“Well, that is true,” nodded Gollaon slowly.  “I have not seen it applied in this fashion before.”

Elemental Candle

These candles are made of purest materials imbued with raw elemental essence giving them unique properties.  Making them is tricky and requires considerable skill either as a alchemist or chandler as well as the ability to manipulate the elements.

New Magic Item – Cookbook of Counterspells

6 September, 2017

Baked Goods“I have never worked for a wizard who was also a baker before,” said Voddick.

“I cannot say that I have either, but it is an interesting time,” replied Gollaon weighing a small loaf of bread in his hand.

“Are you going to eat that?”

“Oh, no, I am good.”  Gollaon handed over the loaf.  “Enjoy.”

“I will.  Though I fear this job will lead to me getting fat.”

“Never.”

Cookbook of Counterspells

These books are of moderate size and often filled with notes and marginalia from various owners.  They usually have a strap or ties to keep it closed.  The scents of spices, herbs and cooking blend with the paper of the book.

Tuesday Magic Item – Sceptre of Feudal Oaths

29 August, 2017

Kingly Sceptre“I am glad we are just mercenaries,” whispered Gollaon to his friend as they stood in the back of the grand hall, surrounded by the assembled nobles of the realm.

“Yes?  What am I missing?” Voddick stretched up trying to get a look at what was going on at the heart of the chamber.

“Oaths to the ruler, ones that will be enforced by an ancient magic,” answered Gollaon.

“Ah, best to avoid those entanglements, especially in war,” nodded Voddick.  “At least the feast should be spectacular.”

Sceptre of Feudal Oaths

These items are usually ancient having acquired their authority from decades or centuries of use and tradition.  The sceptres are usually old and often appear outdated when compared to modern regalia, but are sturdily built and often richly decorated.  They come from an era of fierce war leaders who demanded personal loyalty and we willing to enforce their dictates with violence as needed.

Tuesday Magic Item – Arrow of the Eclipse

22 August, 2017

TotalityThe arrow narrowly missed Voddick’s ear.  Behind him, the wall was bathed in night and when it faded, covered in frost.  “Bullocks!”

“Arrows of the Eclipse!  I thought their secret had been lost,” said Gollaon, launching an arrow in return.

Voddick recocked his crossbow.  “I am so pleased that it has been found again,” he said bitterly.

“Truth, not the best time to appreciate our enemies’ weapons.”

Arrow of the Eclipse

The arrow heads of these weapons are a pure darkness, not reflecting any light, whatever they may have been originally made of, the shafts are dim, as if always in shadow, only the fletchings react to the ambient light.  The final crafting of these arrows must be made during an eclipse making them rare in most worlds.

Tuesday Magic Item – Cloaked in Crowds

15 August, 2017

Shy or stealthy?

“Are you sure they went this way?” asked Voddick, trying to spot the person among the flowing marketplace crowds.

“Yes, but between the mass of people and the skill of the one we are, were following, I fear they are lost to us,” answered Gollaon.

“I suggest we search the taverns.”

“Capital idea.”

Cloaked in Crowds

This poetically named item is in fact a rather unassuming cloak, though made of the finest cloths, in muted colors and its platinum claps appears at pewter to those who do not inspect it closely.  Around other worn clothing, it gradually shifts to match them in cut and appearance, blending into local styles seamlessly.

Tuesday Magic Item – Watchful Circlet of the Cat Monarch

8 August, 2017

Circle of Cats“I know the symbol of the kingdom is a leopard, but do there need to be cats everywhere in the palace?” asked Voddick, shooing a kitten away.

“Keeping in a good relationship with the symbolic animal of your house as not the worst plan,” answered Gollaon.  “You never know who is watching, after all.”

“I do, dozen of little bright eyed cats,” muttered Voddick.

Watchful Circlet of the Cat Monarch

These circlets are usually understated copper or silver inlaid with gold and a few gems or enameled designs showing a crest displaying a cat of some sort.  The circlet is very comfortable to wear and never accidentally falls loose.

Tuesday Magic Item – Harvest Crown

1 August, 2017

So regal, so cuteVoddick grabbed another mug of ale as the platter went by.  “It is lovely to actually get a chance to enjoy a festival.”

Gollaon played a short tune on his flute and then said, “Indeed.  Good to be able to enjoy the fruits of our work for once.”

“So true, the town is safe, the beer is tasty and the music is good,” said Voddick with a broad smile.

“A welcome diversion before we return to work.”

“I will drink to that.”

Harvest Crown

These crowns are made of woven plants newly harvested and woven into patterns traditional to the community making them.  Sometimes there is only one awarded, sometimes two, but almost never more than that.  The crowns remain fresh and strong for a year and then suddenly become dry and brittle, breaking apart at the slightest touch.
