Tuesday Magic Item – Accursed Bone Arrow

16 October, 2018

Carved boneGollaon took cover behind Voddick’s shield as the arrows rained down, several shattered into white and yellowed fragments.  One of the soldiers beside them howled in pain and then feel silent.

“Bastards!” said Gollaon, unlimbering his short sword.

“What foul magic are they using now?” asked Voddick.

“Accused arrows,” said Gollaon.  “Those killed by them rise as the unliving.”

9 October, 2018

Amulets“I do not like how that noble is always there when the cattle are slaughtered,” said Voddick, watching said noble over his mug of ale.

“That is wise,” agreed Gollaon.  “I am fairly certain the amulet they wear is a necrourgic item of some power.”

“Now that is even more troubling.”

“Agreed.  A willingness to use such power indicates a dangerous thirst for power.”

Tuesday Magic Item – Collar of Savagery

2 October, 2018

Hund“It was a nice cloak but not worth this much trouble,” said Voddick as he pulled himself up over the ridge.

Gollaon was close behind.  “And we even left it where it could be found once they started hunting us.  Some people have no sense of forgiveness.”  He cocked his head.  “The hounds are casting around for our scent again.”

“It is not the hounds I am worried about but the mastiffs,” said Voddick before taking a drink from his canteen.

“Truth,” nodded Gollaon.  “It looked as though there is some wicked magic on their collars too.”

“Well, we had best be going if we do not want to find out what it does.”

25 September, 2018

Sewing the birdsGollaon watched the aristocratic officer walk by, his gaze envious.

“It is the cloak you want, is it not?” asked Voddick once they were out of earshot.

“Yes, thrice-damn it, it is amazing,” replied Gollaon.

“We could steal it once out contract was up?”

“Tempting,” said Gollaon with a smile.  “Let us get a drink and scheme.”

“I will always take a drink, my friend.”

“We should try and find some of those.”

“You must give our employers their traditions and they have protections.”

“Hopefully it will be enough.”

4 September, 2018

BadgeVoddick caught Gollaon’s elbow and led him away from the new arrival.  “Not a conquest to pursue,” Voddick said quietly, “an Agent of the Imperium.”

“And dangerous.”
