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The arrow heads of these weapons are a pure darkness, not reflecting any light, whatever they may have been originally made of, the shafts are dim, as if always in shadow, only the fletchings react to the ambient light.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.

Tuesday Magic Item – Magical Incense

25 July, 2017

Drifting smokeVoddick rubbed at his nose. “Incense always make he want to sneeze.”

“Well do not,” whispered Gollaon.  “We do not want to offend any of these god-botherers.”

Voddick nodded and tried to breath through his scarf. “Why are we here again?”

“Because our patron asked us to be.”

Voddick nodded and sighed.

Magical Incense: Calming, Mystic Focus, Petitioning

Incense comes in various forms, block, cone, coil, stick and no doubt others.  Magical incense must by lit and breathed in to be able to use if, each unit of incense fills a 10 x 10 foot area and requires a minute to take effect.  One can hold their breath or move other of the area to avoid then effect should they wish.

Tuesday Magic Item – Intelligencer’s Hive

18 July, 2017

What's the buzz?Voddick shooed a bee away from his drink.  “The bees are particularly busy today.”

“Price you pay for good mead,” replied Gollaon with a smile.

“Truth.”  Voddick nodded.

“But it does seem a bit late in the season,” mused Gollaon.  “And it is a little odd to see them around so many people.”

Voddick frowned.  “It is magic, isn’t it?  It is always magic.”

Intelligencer’s Hive

This magic item consists of two components, a piece of jewelry (usually a broach) emblazoned with a bee, hive or hexagon pattern and a gold disc with a matching pattern.  The disc must be placed in a bee hive to function.

Tuesday Magic Item – Citizenship Shield

4 July, 2017

Defend your people

Voddick checked his bolts and closed their case.  “Well, I am glad they are enthusiastic, though I would prefer that they were better trained,” he said surveying the gathered militia with their mismatched weapons and armor.

“At least they have kept to a unified choice of colors and the shields are in good shape,” answered Gollaon.  “Though I would have liked another week or two of drills and weapon practice.”

“Very rude of the raiders not to be sporting about all this.”

“Indeed, we shall have to let them know how we feel about their lack of manners.”

Citizenship Shield

These shields are solid and well made, decorated with the symbols of the community they are made for.  Often each civic bearer has painted their name on the inside as if to emphasize the continuity of the defense of the citizens.
