Tuesday Magic Item – Shoes of the Wilis

28 June, 2022

Let's danceGollaon frowned and moved to get a better look at the dancer.  Voddick thought nothing of it at first, used to his friend trying to get a better look at handsome folk, but then he noticed that his friend’s attention was focused almost entirely on the dancer’s shoes.

Voddick sidled up to Gollaon.  “What is it, my friend?” he asked in a whisper.

“Those shoes, there is something about them, but I just cannot put my finger on it . . .”

Voddick looked closer.  “Something fae perhaps?”

Shoes of the Wilis

These shoes are always well made from the best of materials, though no iron or steel is ever used in their construction.  While obviously of the highest quality and value, to those who appreciate such things, they are never overly decorated or gaudy. Read the rest of this entry ?

Tuesday Magic Item – Helpful Honey

24 May, 2022

As sweet as“Kind of the beekeeper to give us some of his honey,” said Voddick tucking away the jar of honey.

“We help protect the hives, the product of the hives helps to protect us, it seems a virtuous cycle,” said Gollaon with a smile.

“I like that, seems . . . complete.”

“Sometimes the things we do work out.”

Helpful Honey

This honey is a beautiful golden hue but sometimes, if you catch it just right in the light, it has a rainbow sheen.  It must be kept in clear glass, stored in any other sort of container, it just vanishes.  The honey’s magic comes from the types of bees that make it and the types of flowers they gather pollen from, usually, one or both are from the fae worlds.

Tuesday Magic Item – Fae Torc of Forms

17 May, 2022

Change your look“Was not that . . .” whispered Voddick.

“The Duchess, now the Duke,” answered Gollaon.  “They seem to have acquired a rather potent magic item for form shifting.”

“Hmm,” mused Voddick.  “I can see uses for it I suppose but I do not think such magics are for me.”

“Some people are not comfortable with the form they were born with, nothing wrong with them finding one that suits them better.”

“Truth.”

Fae Torc of Forms

These torcs can be made of various precious metals, from copper to gold, and subtly decorated with runes and symbols representing various genders and kindreds, these are so carefully worked that it requires careful examination to even notice them.  Rarely they are decorated with gems or enamel work.

Beware the thornsThese creatures are created for a singular purpose, to kill, drawing upon fae magic and the ties of blood to create an animated plant that seeks to slay a particulat target.

A child-size being of vaguely humanoid form made of intertwined strands of thorny vines, its head a mass of flower petals.

Tuesday Magic Item – Stable Snowshoes

5 January, 2021

Dashing through the snow“Snow is better experienced from the comfort of a warm window,” said Gollaon trudging along the snow.

“As least we are properly equipped,” said Voddick, tapping one of his snowshoes with his staff.  “Wading through this without them would be even less pleasant.”

“True . . . and the payment for delivering the message is good.”

“Enough to buy several nights in a warm inn at the very least.”

Stable Snowshoes

These snowshoes are well made in the local style using the best of materials, the enchantments used in creating them keep them flexible and strong even if poorly stored or treated.  Occasionally they are decorated but this is rare as they are primarily a practical item.

Tuesday Magic Item – Soothsayer Sundial

29 December, 2020

Light Sorceress Sundial“Why are we hiding in a garden in the middle of the night?” asked Voddick in a whisper.

“To see who will avail themselves of the power of the sundial,” answered Gollaon passing a bit of candied fruit to his friend.

“What powers are those?” asked Voddick taking the fruit with a nod of thanks.

“Predictions of the future, I saw it being used at dawn.  But at the deep of night is when one asks about the darkest of deeds.”

Soothsayer Sundial

These sundials are always unique and unusual, speaking of something more than simple time keeping.  They are relatively large and difficult to move and will not work unless aligned properly so that they can display the time. Read the rest of this entry ?

Tuesday Magic Item – Solstice Spear

22 December, 2020

One  solstice or another“I knew we should not have gotten tangled up in the politics of the Fair Folk,” said Voddick hacking his way through the vines which seemed to gown back almost as quickly as they were cut.

“It seemed so easy,” said Gollaon pushing forward.  “Deliver the case, take payment and go.  How was I to know everyone would go crazy.”

“Fair folk,” snapped Voddick.

“Truth.  Never again.”

“That is what you said last time!”

Solstice Spear

This spear is a masterpiece of fae construction, the spear point is leaf-shaped with a long guard.  The shaft is inlaid with designs echoing leaves and vines.  At the height of the winter solstice, the spear point is silver with black runes and the shaft is dark gray with leaves the color of autumn, while during the summer solstice, the spear point is golden with red rune and the shaft is white with green leaves.  Between the two periods, the spear slowly changes from one state to the other.
