108 - Recipe for ceiling mounted machine gun.

1 Halfling (or Gnome, bloody light Human, Elf or 1/2 elf)
6 to 12 iron spikes for the afore mentioned character, plus 1 or 2 for the quivers of arrows
a few short (by comparison) lengths of rope
1 bow and 1 or 2 quivers of arrows
1 hammer (unless you really want to try and hammer them into the stone ceiling by hand), mace, hammer, or other top heavy implement would suffice.

Hammer spikes into ceiling
Secure character to spikes with rope, do the same for the quivers
Have everyone else looking docile below the character on the ceiling, playing the afore mentioned Nim with spare spikes if you wish.
Wait for unsuspecting bad guys to see you and move towards you - hope they fail their spot checks. Go to Comment

108.
Wrap a rag soaked in oil around the head and light for a quick torch. (It is advisable to drive the spike into a stone wall, floor, or companion you've got a grudge with first.

109. To satisfy the desire for male companionship. (Everyone was think'n it, I just said it! :P )

110. In place of wooden stakes to secure your tent for the evening.

111. For makeshift tapping a tree to get sap or syrup from it. (A bucket would come in handy here) Go to Comment

The sub recieved a strange touch with the character being dead. It appears the guidance of a saint is not always enough. Go to Comment

Just found this - it's always great to know someone's actually used one of your submissions for RP; a high compliment. I also very much like the way he makes the order come to life (the eaten sword really made me laugh as well!) Go to Comment

Ack, never voted for good old Aeth! Also added link to Iain's order of Saint Senren, presumably Aethelstan's patron deity. Go to Comment

Class: Cleric of Andur, Lord of Order
(Brother of the Most Holy Order of St. Senren)

Attributes: Aethelstan is physically unremarkable, but exhibits more wisdom than is common for one his age. He is personable and articulate (when he’s not dealing with attractive women!)

Strength 12 (Average), Dexterity 12 (Average), Constitution 12 (Average)
Intelligence 11 (Average), Wisdom 16 (Very Good), Charisma 14 (Good)

Weapon Proficiencies: Two-Handed Sword (Favored of St. Senren), Footman’s Mace

Other Notable Skills: Court Etiquette, Healing, Herbal Lore, History, Horsemanship, Law, Religion

Supernatural Abilities:
Aethelstan has learned to channel the holy power of Andur to heal the wounded; he has also learned to call upon the power of St. Senren, his patron saint, to drive back the undead and other creatures of darkness.

Lesser magic he has acquired include the ability to conjure light in times of darkness (Light), a spell for cleaning items (Prestidigitation), a spell to purify food and drink (Purify Food and Drink), and a spell to summon humble creatures such as mice or rats and command them (Lesser Animal Summoning).

Equipment:
The Justice of Andur, a Footman’s Mace
The Bringer of Order, a Two-Handed Sword (Eaten, but he’ll get a new one eventually)

Don't tell Talia! I think she plans to take over running things, since our fights so far have been rather dicey affairs.

At least, if I lose my mace, I can bludgeon foes over the heads with my iron spikes. They're also my missile weapon, if one is needed! Trade goods if we encounter savages! Paperweights! Writing implements! (Cuneiform, anyone?)

1001 uses, those spikes! Go to Comment
