A minor piece, but this could certainly be the hook for a larger adventure: "So you say you found this armor in an Orc hoard, eh? Well, I might be willing to go easy on you if you take care of this little problem I have with the kingdom next door. I can't get involved directly, you understand..."

Nice item. Could be a spring board for similar types or armour and maybe shields. Cheaper ones could only absorb up to certain levels of spells or only certain types of spells. Go to Comment

Interesting, but no.
Poor backstory, the powers seem very arbitrary. Why does lightning strike an evil wearer.
Below average.

2/5. Go to Comment

I would tweek and tune the armor a bit. I personaly feel that the armor should not be able to hold protective spells for instance, but just things offensive spells for instance.

Besides that, even good characters may want to bend the rules, so they could be punished as well, at least according to my interpretation.

All in all it is a nice item though and I think I would love to see a roque use it ;+)) Go to Comment

I liked most of it, with the exception of the very last line. I got a good visual of  Huran and his armor, his precious armor. However, I don't think his dying words would be enough to add a lightning strike. Especially dying peacefully, but not all tales need to be tragic.. Solid submission!

Very useful. The Grand Master of an Order might wear this. Go to Comment

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
