Tuesday Magic Item – Twilight Summoning Broach

3 October, 2017

Seen / Not Seen“That new summoner is exceedingly proficient but I do not like the creatures summoned they seem . . . off,” Voddick concluded he voice trailing off.

“Agreed,” said Gollaon.  “But oddly fascinating much like the summoner.”

“Well, as long as they are kept in line, I have no complaints.”

“Unlike that infernalist we served with in Olosk,” said Voddick.

“Well, I am sure he is regretting his choices now.  That group of imps that turned on him,”  Gollaon shuddered.

“Messy,” agreed Voddick.

Twilight Summoning Broach

These items are made of a gemstone with beautifully carved intaligo work carved into it usually set in silver, but the image on them changes occasionally though nothing else does (cracks, fittings, even dirt and dust) usually they show images of people but animals are almost as common with the occasional item or symbol.

Tuesday Magic Item – Spelldancer’s Mask

26 September, 2017

What do you see?“The local sorcerer are very . . . energetic,” said Voddick, dodging a spinning dancer and their tambourine.

Gollaon cast an admiring gaze as the athletic dancer slide by.  “And very fit.  I approve.  Magic spinners often give into sloth, relying on their magic, and neglecting their physical self.  No such problems here.”

“Agreed, they are all very fit,” nodded Voddick.  “I am glad we are working with them, they seem like they would be quite terrifying on the battlefield.”

“And possibly other places too.”

Spelldancer’s Mask

These full face masks are decorated with runes and sigils on both sides, they can be composed of a variety of materials depending on the tradition of the maker, everything from carved wood to shaped metal can (and had) been used.  The only requirements are the high degree of care and effort placed into the creating of the mask.

Tuesday Magic Item – Black Banner of Piracy

19 September, 2017

Pirates!“I am not happy with this job,” complained Voddick, sipping at a mug of water and trying to keep his footing on the rolling deck.

“Well, it in only to get us to the next major city.  We could not stay where we were, after all,” said Gollaon gripping the rail and looking to the horizon.

“And whose fault was that?”

“So, I forgot which religious orders had strictures about celibacy,” admitted Gollaon with an embarrassed shrug.  “It was not as if the novices had taken vows yet.”

“That did not seem to matter much to the order’s enforcers.”

“Truth,” agreed Gollaon with a grimace.

Black Banner of Piracy

These black ensigns, often gruesomely decorated, are used by pirate ships to aid them in cowing their victims.  After all, pirate would rather their victims simply surrendered rather than having to fight, which is a messy business.

Elemental Candle for D&D 5E

14 September, 2017

Light the darknessVoddick set the lit match to the yellow flame and both went out.  “That is hard to get used to.”

“True,” agreed Gollaon, blinking after images from his sight.  “But useful.  How often are you going to drop a candle into a fire?”

“And even then you would still have light,” noted Voddick with a grin.

“Good point,” Gollaon grinned back.  “I think we should see about getting some of the others too.”

“Agreed, a candle that burns underwater seems most useful.”

Elemental Candle

Wondrous item, uncommon

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 – 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.”

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.
