Tuesday Magic Item – Superior Soap

16 December, 2020

“So, what is in the box we spent so much effort acquiring?” asked Voddick looking over Gollaon’s shoulder as the later finished opening the lock.

“Let us see,” said Gollaon as he opened the lid of the small chest. revealing many small packets each wrapped in paper with a label.  Gollaon picked on up and handed it to Voddick.  It smelt clean, like freshly laundered sheets.

“Granduncle’s Superior Soap!?”

Gollaon slit open on of the packages with a thumbnail and opened it.  “It is the real stuff.  Superior soap.”

Superior Soap

These bars of soap can come in any color but are usually white and can be wrapped in paper or come in a box or tin.  They usually have a clean smell but when used to clean something, that scent vanishes as does any scents of the washed person or item. Read the rest of this entry ?

8 December, 2020

Let it snow!“I had not expected that,” said Voddick wiping his brow before taking a swig of water.

“Truth,” said Gollaon, “this sort of desert has probably not seen snow in . . . centuries or more.”

“It is a good trick, we should see if we can get some of those snowflakes for later use.”

“Excellent thought.”

Sudden Snowflake

These devices are in the form of a snowflake, usually made of crystal or silver or a mix of the two.  Most commonly they are about two inches (5 cm) across but they can be larger or smaller.  Sometimes they are work on necklaces or as earrings.  They are used by throwing them, sometimes with a command word, and they trigger on impact.

Tuesday Magic Item – Claws of the Yeti

20 September, 2011

The bandit scrambled up the frozen wall like a spider up a branch.  Leaving his companions behind to be slaughtered.  Kazrig, our ranger, tried to follow but dowslid n the slick wall almost instantly.  “Damn that coward!” he shouted.

“Well, better than fighting another one,” said Levian the Black cleaning his sword.  “I prefer my enemies to flee in terror.”

“Wonder how he climbed so fast?”

“When we catch him, we will ask.”

Claws of the Yeti

These gloves are made of thick white leather, lined with coarse white fur.  They are surprisingly warm and comfortable once put on.
