These are the kinds of items that those in power would want MUs to make, they are solid, basic, and useful.... nothing flashy and unique. You could build a powerful army with these shields... if you had enough mages.
Perhaps the shields should be from a bygone era, when The Legions protected the world for the intrusions of the Goblin races. Using these magics shields and slightly enhanced weapons, these brave men protected Civilization!
Such a connection would add a sense of history to such utilitarian enchantments. Go to Comment
Personaly I do not feel that the shield has simple abilities, but you are right in stating that they are simple to describe and can actualy have great use.
Personaly I would use the second ability in the following manner: While dropping, first position the shield below my feet and then speak the command word. This way the shield would form a platform onto which I fall. This seems much more secure as just dropping and holding the shield as a parachute above me.
Two of these shields could form a perfect set of stairs as well....
Comming to think of it, it seems very much like a unmovable rod, but then a bit more powerfull, as the rod always needs to be attached to something.
No! If you have a god who can be known as the Rabbit or Eastern Rabbit, it can be a perfect item, if you just give it a better name, like just the Eastern Rabbit's Staff, and maybe a new command word. I like it! It fits in perfectly with my god Tosh, the Tradelord, who's avatar is a golden rabbit. Go to Comment
