Tuesday Magic Item – Incense of Swift Travel

16 January, 2018

A gift to the stoneVoddick watched the smoke curl up from the incense set on the milestone, he whispered to Gollaon.  “It is rare to see such ceremonies, their roots obviously date far back.”

“Well spotted,” replied Gollaon with an appreciative raised eyebrow.  “I do would place it origins in the mists of time before the Imperium.”

“Will it still work?”

“I suppose that we will find out soon enough.”

Incense of Swift Travel

This incense must be made specifically for each road requiring either careful study of the route or access to an existing formula.  It is usually made in discs or coils to be placed on shrines or milestones.

Tuesday Magic Item – Door of Diminution

10 January, 2018

Big door, little peopleVoddick was about to pound on the door when Gollaon pulled him back.  “Do not touch the door!”

“Why not?” asked Voddick a little unbalanced by the interruption and demand.

Gollaon pointed to the ground in front of the door where there was a tiny shoe.  “I have heard of wizards using such traps for the unwary.  An enchantment on the door shrinks those who try to open it.  Most wizards who use such a trap also have many large and hungry cats who also know of the door’s properties.”

“The fiend,” said Voddick.

“We had best find another way to approach the wizard within.”


Door of Diminution

It is not known what cruel wizard first created these nasty traps, but legend said they was killed by a very angry (though very small) dragon.  These doors are always very heavily built with magical glyphs and sigils worked into the design, often along the edge where they cannot be seen by the casual observer.

New Magic Item – Lantern of Dancing Shadows

4 January, 2018

Dance shadow, danceVoddick sipped his mulled ale and listened to the beautiful song.  He smiled as the shadows began to dance in tune with the music.

Gollaon sat down beside him with his spiced wine.  “Sublime music and subtle magic, how beautiful.”

“Indeed,” nodded Voddick.

Lantern of Dancing Shadows

These lanterns are always of the highest craftsmanship and are usually decorated with scenes of entertainment and merriment.  While rarely made of material more valuable than copper and glass, they are sometimes adorned with crystals and decorations in gold or silver.

Tuesday Magic Item – Charitable Box

26 December, 2017

A Box of Good Hopes“I am not sure how much use that old cloak and hose will be to anyone,” said Voddick closing the lid on the box.

“Well, along with that much mended tunic and socks I added, they should keep someone warm,” replied Gollaon.

“I hope so, that cloak keep me safe on more than one cold night.”

“And from more than one dagger thrust as I recall,” said Gollaon with a grin.

“True, one of the reason it was so patched.”

Charitable Box

These solidly built wooden chests have a clasp but no lock, they are often battered and damaged from hard use.  They refused to be sealed, ropes untie, chains unlock and magic fails to keep them from opening.

Tuesday Magic Item – Silver Bells of Winter

19 December, 2017

Dashing through the snowVoddick trudged through the snow.  “Not much further now, yes?”

“If we have followed the route correctly we should make it to the town by nightfall,” replied Gollaon.

“I hope so, it is cold enough as it is.”

A distant but approaching ringing brought the mercenaries hands to their weapons as a sled pulled by a horse bedecked by bells.  The driver reined in.  “Ho travelers!  Headed to town?  Climb aboard, there is room for you.”

“Thank you,” said the pair in unison.

Silver Bells of Winter

These sets of silver bells are usually found attached to a harness and only work in sets of six or more.  They have a lovely, cheerful tone when shaken by the movement of those wearing them.

Tuesday Magic Item – Fire-Eating Moth

12 December, 2017

Moth watches“It is buzzing again,” said Voddick, tapping at his pin.

“More elementals?  I am regretting taking this contract to root out these summoners,” said Gollaon, nocking another arrow.

“Well, the pay is very good,” said Voddick sighting along his crossbow.

“Agreed and they did give us some useful tools to help.”

Fire-Eating Moth

These metallic pins are in fact bound elementals tasked with detecting other elementals and protecting the wearer.

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.”


Snow Kettle

These kettle are made of metal, usually copper, and are rarely decorated.  They are practical items and often show signs of hard use.
