Tuesday Magic Item – Snow Kettle

5 December, 2017

Cup of tea?Voddick looked down the snow covered hillside.  “I have always liked the snow but not the cold.  Why can it not snow when it is warm and we could enjoy it?”

“Well, at least we have hot tea,” said Gollaon, shoveling snow into the kettle.

“I am so glad you found that,” said Voddick rubbing his hands together.  “It makes guard duty much more pleasant.”

“Agreed.”

Tuesday Magic Item – Martin’s Dispatch Bag

28 November, 2017

Dispatches to deliverVoddick shot another pursuer and worked to reload his crossbow.  “This is easier when one is not mounted.”

Gollaon twisted and released an arrow.  “True.  At least who are out of the siege.”

“And being hunted by half their cavalry!”

“It would not be fun otherwise.  Now we had best catch up with that courier we are escorting.”

Tuesday Magic Item – Storm-Cutting Glaive

21 November, 2017

Sharp enough to cut magic“Charge!” yelled the knight, his men-at-arms and mercenaries followed, some more rapidly than others.

“Charging wizards is not the best for our health,” muttered Voddick.

“They said they had protection,” said Gollaon, “and we are about to find out.”  He gestured to a warmage crafting a spell.

The mercenaries dove for cover as the mage unleashed a bolt of fire.  As it reached the knight, he reached in a blur of motion, his polearm cutting through the fire, weakening the blaze but not entirely dispersing it.  The remanant of the flame washed over the pair.  “That was surprisingly effective.”

“Hope he can keep it up.”

Tuesday Magic Item – Hop, Skip and Jump Medallion

14 November, 2017

“Thief!” yelled the merchant grabbing as the slim form now running from his stall.

Voddick lunged for the thief but grabbed only air as they simply were not there.  He looked around confused.

“There!” shouted Gollaon winging a peach pit off the back of the thief’s head.  The thief looked back with a bit of wounded pride and then leapt up onto a rooftop and was gone.

“Unfair,” complained Voddick.

“But successful.”

Voddick nodded ruefully.

Tuesday Magic Item – Breadboard of Plenty

7 November, 2017

Best thing since . . .“While it is not my preferred food, bread is a true staple,” said Voddick smearing butter across the hunk of bread.

“Some say it is the core of a proper life, but I agree with you, not what I would build my diet around,” Gollaon said, spreading jam across his slice.

“Foolish sell-swords,” said Madam Sugarfoot cutting off another slice.  “Bread is a good food but at its best among others and better yet when shared among friends.”

“Truth,” agreed Voddick.

Tuesday Magic Item – Breaker Orb

24 October, 2017

Boom!Gollaon ducked as the projectile passed over his head and shattered against the building with a terrifying roar, tearing apart part of the wall.  He grabbed a javelin and tossed it at the creature that emerged from the blast.

A swift strike from Voddick brought the creature down before it could attack his friend.  “Where did that come from?” ask Voddick as the creatures corpse started to melt away into blue-black smoke.

“More magic, breaker orbs, they shatter releasing magical energy and a creature,” said Gollaon.

“Delightful,” said Voddick.  “And nothing we can do about it except destroy those catapults.”

“A task for the cover of night.”

“Duck!”

Breaker Orb

These heavy and crudely cast glass orbs are filled with a swirling liquid that occasionally almost formed into the shape of a creature or part of one.  One propelled with force, the orb breaks easily, releasing a terrible burst of noise and energy and some sort of creature from another realm.

New Monster – Guardian Companion Template

18 October, 2017

Ghostly Cat“That cat is fantastic!” said Voddick looking back down the alley.

“I am glad it is on our side,” agreed Gollaon.

“She has watched over my family for generations,” said the child.

“I’ll buy it a kipper,” said Voddick heading on.

“And a dish of cream,” added Gollaon falling in behind.
