Hmm...as a thought, perhaps instead of it being ensorceled as a gift, perhaps it aquired that ability thanks to the act of Huran. I remember us discussing such things before. Go to Comment

After reading this, I wish I had read it years ago.  I had an item similar to this in campaign I ran in the 90s Imperial Nomar Bracers.  It was armor that stored spells for later use, and changed color when it was charged.  What I like about this post is that the description was much more direct and straight forward.  When I wrote up the item for this Citadel I really struggled with how to phrase things like



 



when a spell is cast at the wearer the armor sucks up the spells affects and stores them until the wearer directs them somewhere else.



Its metal takes on a silvery glow when it has an absorbed spell in it, 



This post re-enforces the importance of simple straight forward phrasing.



Except for the last sentence, which just feels like it was tacked on as after thought by somebody that wandered by the computer terminal.

A decent item. Axlerowes is right on with this one.

As for a penalty while charged, the armour glows visibly, though not enough to provide real illumination.

Like the trade-off b/w absorbing a magical spell against normal strength of protection.
Like Ramhir, I'm happy with the lightning effect on those with bad alignment.

I rather liked it, CP. There was enough backstory to give it some background in the world, but not enough to make the backstory unusable, like some I've seen.



Pieh, the lightning strike effect could have been part of the original spell, or as a result of his heroic action, and just not noticed while he was wearing it, since he was of good alignment. As you said, solid submission. 3.5/5

I like that one. Say new idiots in town. See a rich swank dude walking around like he owns the place talking his uppity talk. Maybe he annoys them or something so they see an opening to get a killer ransom.

If the PC's are of the unscrupulous persuasion, rival could maybe convince the PC's to swipe the kid for an easy buck, or rob his person or home.

PC's good guys then the local law may have been trying to capture Fullick for years (too smart to do it themselves), and find the PC's ignorace of who he is perfect. Send the PC's to break into his house to look for damning evidence of some sort or something like that. Fullick finds out and uh oh. Go to Comment

This suggestion is just insane, but I'm bored. What if he has a child, and someone who doesn't realize quite who he is (jealous/hateful rival, member of opposing Thieves' Guild, etc.) kidnaps the child? You could get into all sorts of messes that way... Go to Comment

A good way to get the party into a situation where they owe debts to people they don't want to. Conflicting loyalties and interests soon follow. Go to Comment

Interesting-I like the idea of it. A local "wide boy" who has got rich and apes his "betters". Go to Comment

So, from what I gather, Tolky never opened the bag, possibly knowing what would happen.

One of Tolky's crew decided to keep it for himself, so opened the bag, closed it, placed a copy of the bag in its place (Tolky would never open the bag and so the theft would not be discovered in time) and fled with the stone.

Dredged from the depths of the citadel. Another one of my finer pieces that I toiled over for hours and hours. This one was a one-off that we used in one of our games and had some fun with. That unvoted list is a wonder isn't it. :) Go to Comment

A basic and interesting item. It is not a "grand item" or something to base a campaign around, but a utilitarian item that can easily be installed in almost any fantasy campaign.

Not your best work, but not bad either by any stretch.

I should get around to posting something new myself. Go to Comment

Simple, but effective in some circumstances. Most jewellers I've run always have sufficient guards to discourage crime, so this item would need to be area-effect to be useful in such circumstances. Go to Comment
