Tuesday Magic Item – Accursed Bone Arrow

16 October, 2018

Carved boneGollaon took cover behind Voddick’s shield as the arrows rained down, several shattered into white and yellowed fragments.  One of the soldiers beside them howled in pain and then feel silent.

“Bastards!” said Gollaon, unlimbering his short sword.

“What foul magic are they using now?” asked Voddick.

“Accused arrows,” said Gollaon.  “Those killed by them rise as the unliving.”

“Bastards!”

18 September, 2018

Armed and willing to defend“That new arrival, the one with the staff, seems quite devoted to the defense of the local people,” said Voddick, watching them spar with several men-at-arms.

“Worthy ideals inspire righteous people,” replied Gollaon idly watching the fight.

“We should try and find some of those.”

“Worthy ideals or righteous people?”

“Both.”

21 August, 2018

Mosquito Mask“Thrice damned bloodsuckers,” cursed Voddick slapping at a bug as he waded through the swamp.  “How did we end up here any way?”

“We needed to get out of Glost quickly and this was the only contract leaving directly,” replied Gollaon, scanning the undergrowth.

“Well, those two nights in the palace were worth it,” sighed Voddick.  “Do you have any more of the alchemical paste?  The one to keep the bugs away?”

Gollaon reached forward and plucked a small dark from Voddick’s armor.  “It is not bugs that are trying to bite you my friend.”  He shouted, “Be alert, we have hidden enemies with darts around!”

10 April, 2018

Knight with lance“Look, they are bringing up their elite.  The knights of the doomsday?” Voddick asked, not sure if he remembered the name correctly.

“Indeed, armed with weapons left over from the Gods War, forged in hell flames and other such fanciful nonsense,” said Gollaon.

“Does that indicate that they are not exceedingly dangerous?”

“Well, yes, but less so because of the weapons.  They were forged primarily to fight a divine foe that no longer exists, but they are still potent magic items.”

20 March, 2018

“Why?” asked Voddick recocking his crossbow.

“The skirmishers have javelins that will magically pin the horses’ hooves to the ground.”

“If they were not on the other side I would warn them.”

“Well, send a warning shot their way, it will not dissuade them but at least we will have tried.  I hate the thought of those horses suffering.”

“Agreed,” said Voddick taking aim.

6 March, 2018

BraveGollaon ducked behind a tree and Voddick knelt behind his shield, both tree and shield caught arrows.  “As long as the left flank holds, I think the battle is ours,” said Voddick.

“They will hold, their commander will see to it,” replied Gollaon, stepping out long enough to loose an arrow and then ducking back.

“The soldiers are solid too.  Now we just have to keep from being perforated before the fight ends.”
