Tuesday Magic Item – Axel’s Plant Hating Cleaver

30 November, 2021

Get to the chopperVoddick frowned as he watched the lead soldier cutting his way through the undergrowth with considerable glee.  “Our pathbreaker does not seem to care for plants,” he said to his companion.

“Indeed, I think it has to do with his blade.  He seems quite normal until it is drawn,” said Gollaon following behind.

“But he does clear an effective path.  But I do not think he is making any friends among the forest dwellers,” he added steping over a severed branch.

Axel’s Plant Hating Cleaver

This heavy chopping blade is designed to cut it way through vegitation and enemies with equal ease, it has obviously seen hard use and the blade is stained with unidentificable stains.  Made for the mercenary Axel Druckknopf, it became inbued with his viceral hater of all plants and begitation

Tuesday Magic Item – Doll Death Rod

23 November, 2021

TCEsmVoddick swung his crossbow towards the sound echoing through the abandoned manor.  “I know we are skilled in hunting dangerous sorcerers and warlocks,” he said quietly.  “But why can they not hide in someplace pleasant for once.”

“Dabblers in evil magic do not like witnesses?” ventured Gollaon in reply.

“Well, there is that,” admitted Voddick.

Doll Death Rod

These rods are rare as the magic that powers them is widely considered evil and unpleasant, they are short heavy and -inevitably- a dark color, usually black, with minimal adornment.  It is so named because it leaves the bodies of its victims shrunk to doll-like size.

Tuesday Magic Item – Peacemaker’s Baton

16 November, 2021

Keep the Peace“Why are we escorting the envoy again?  They are protected by a peace banner and that fancy baton,” grumbled Voddick

“Because we are mercenaries and ultimately expendable,” answered Gollaon cheerfully.

“Ah, right, all the pay, all the glory,” said Voddick.

“Not enjoying the sellsword’s life?”

“Not at the moment, if we had not been rushed out without breakfast, I would be in a cheerier mood.”

Peacemaker’s Baton

These batons can be short of long enough to serve as banner pole, depending on what is traditional among the culture that made it, but must are small enough to be easily held in one hand.  They are usually made of light colored materials to be highly visible and decorated with symbols of peace.

9 November, 2021

Break down walls and tyrants

“Now we have mobilized the locals, what next?” asked Voddick.

“I fear we are going to have to storm the castle,” answered Gollaon.

“That sort of task rarely ends well,” said Voddick grimly.  “Unless we can convince his solders to turn their coats.”

“If we can make a good show of force, they may see reason.”

“Well, they do have some tools that might help, those pick carry some ancient magic,” said Voddick.  “Do you think you and the other archers can keep the defenders from killing us while we give them a demonstration of that magic.”

“We will do our best.”

2 November, 2021

Brush&MonkeyVoddick watched the official turn to a new page and tried not to sigh.  Pretending to turn his attention back to his book.  “It cannot be too much longer, can it?” he asked quietly.

Gollaon lounged against a wall.  “It will be done when it is done, trying to hurry it will only cause delays.”

“I know, we have officials like this back in my home too.”

“They are everywhere, it seems, as though generated by the laws of bueaucracy itself.”

“A sad truth.”

19 October, 2021

To see the universeGollaon leaned against the wall and watched as the young student engaged in deep debate with . . . a star cat?  So they had said the being was called.

“Can you follow what they are saying?” whispered Voddick.  “I understand some of the words but the concepts are beyond me.”

“It is a deep philisopical debate on the nature of how do we understand the world around us,” replied Gollaon.  “I can make out that much but only that much.”

“It does not seem our skills as bodygurd will be needed, however,” added Voddick.

“Just as well, that cat seems dangerous for a philosopher.”

14 September, 2021

Ring in process“That is a useful way to carry one’s money,”said Gollaon watching the coins appear below the buyer’s ring and fall into the merchant’s waiting hands.

“Yes and harder to steal than a pouch,”noted Voddick. “And even if you could, the coins can only be returned by their owner.”

“Wise precaution,” mused Gollaon.

Goblins in the Sea of Stars, as one would expect, are different.

Goblin (Stellar)

BrokenMirrorMirror, mirror polished bright
Mirror, mirror warding light
Mirror, mirror night and day
Goblin, goblin keep away

-Traditional Visse Cleaning Rhyme

You turn to see something duck behind a rock, a moment later it is leering at you from around a tree.  Glittering yellow eyes slit like a cat’s under a wild green and orange hair peer out from a face like a squashed child.  It laughs evilly as you realize your shoes have sunk into the ankles in a pile of dung that was concealed by loose grass and straw.  You look back and the creature has vanished.

Tuesday Magic Item – Dwarven Work Boots

20 January, 2021

Pull yourself up

“Now these are the sort of boots I have always wanted.” said Voddick admiring his new boots.

“Well, they are nice if you like that sort of thing,” said Gollaon.

“Look at that stitching!  And the sole, it will defeat most hazards.”

“The yellow stitching seems a bit garish,” said Gollaon with a frown.

“It is a signature of the boot maker,” said Voddick defensively.

Dwarven Work Boots

These boots are heavy and over-engineered, designed and reinforced with metal and magic to protect the wearers feet against most threats one is likely to encounter.  And for all of that, they are remarkable comfortable.
