Tuesday Magic Item – Spiritdrinker

11 October, 2022

Choose your weaponGollaon slowly sipped at a glass of wine as they watched the swordsman practice.

Voddick joined his friend and took a drink of ale.  “That is a uniquely decorated sword he has,” he said.  “But did it not have a different pattern when we were here last month?”

“I was just pondering the same thing,” Gollaon took another sip.

Spiritdrinker

It is thought (perhaps hoped) that there is only one of these blades, its maker is thought to have been the God of Smiths at the request of Lady-Lord of Mischief.  The weapon is quite plain at first, though it is perfectly balanced and whoever picks it up finds it fits their hand perfectly.  As it is used, it shapes itself to its wielder and, perhaps, the reverse is true as well.

Tuesday Magic Item – Tyrant’s Bane Ribbon

23 August, 2022

A ribbon for justiceGollaon turned down the alleyway and gestured for Voddick to follow.  “More guards,” he whispered.

Voddick pressed himself into a doorway.  “More Tyrants.  Cannot we ever be free of such petty cruelty?”

“We just need to do our job and keep them busy chasing shadows for the new few hours.  The locals have a plan to finish the Tyrant off.” said Gollaon, weighing a few stones in their hand.

“As long as we can avoid actually getting into a fight with any of the Tyrant’s soldiers, it should work out.”

Tyrant’s Bane Ribbon

These ribbons seem ordinary but they are woven of tears, sorrow and a desire for justice, not the easiest materials to work with.  They are usually black but if another color is common for mourning in the culture it was made in, it will likely be that color.

Round and roundVoddick dodged back around the corner as a whirling disc spun by.  “Keep back!” Voddick shouted to Gollaon.

Dart“Darts?” Voddick said looking at his shield.

“Do not let them hit you!” said Gollaon taking cover behind a barrel.  “They are dizzying darts!”

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.

“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.”
