Abadra Siege Barrel
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Magical)

I personally did not see the "fun" aspect of this. This is not a personal item for PCs or anyone, but the kind of toy that would be used in the world around them.

The format and language of the post work for me. The content is useful. I would link to Thaumatrium, so people will realize what it is. Linkage is one of the important aspects of posts here, as you can make simple posts "richer" and "more complete" by adding other submissions to it.

Useful item. Good job. Post some more. Go to Comment

Now this is an interesting idea, a magical pot-de-fers or siege mortar. While it is interesting, it is hard to tell if this is something that PCs would actually be interested in, or if it would be silly Snakes in a Barrel gag item. Go to Comment

I remember this from a while ago, and I'm shocked I never voted on it.

While the outside is covered in spears and arrows pointing towards the exit hole, perhaps the inside is covered in the magical scripts that give the barrel it's momentum-capturing enchantment, and that is why hitting the inside is dangerous? (Just a bit of extra PC-interaction fluff for when you're describing it to them) Go to Comment

your item is silly but I think you have a good idea in it and i think you should continue posting these things. Go to Comment

So it is like a "snake in a can" with arrows in it.

So would the PCs be rolling this thing around or it just a gag trap? Go to Comment

While not all items should be PC items (not every PC is going to need, want or find interesting an evil silver writing desk, an enchanted spinning wheel or the technocolor dream coat) but everything should be something that PC will have to interact with or respond to. So every item should be in this way be PC directed, and thus the only reason to design a complex item (for game terms anyway) is to have a complex PC interaction with that item.

As a battlefield item this could be interesting cause it can be captured and used/reused by a small group (aka capturing the machine gun nest). As a PC item, I don't know about you guys, but I always have one player that loves set traps/snares. Go to Comment

Well, it is intended primarily as a form of artillery - with normal Archer/javaline throwing range. The culture which developed them would have deployed many of them and used them primarily as an ambush weapon - stop a calvary charge, or as point defence similar to using cannon with grapeshot.

This is not intended as a PC weapon or adventuring gear. I did not figure that all Items had to be PC items.

And yes, it could be used as a booby trap or rather lethal gag.

It was also part of a list of military oriented magic items I was working on, but this item ended up being described enough to be better then a scroll entry so I added it as a general entry. Maybe a backstory with it's intended use would have better set the stage... Go to Comment

Yep. While we are at, dump a bunch of carnivorous monkeys too :)

Sigh, never intended for it to be silly... :) Go to Comment

One way to increase the utility of this item would be to mount one on a chariot. Go to Comment

Perhaps living creatures (vipers, scorpions, nests of wasps, unruly children, etc)could be hurled into the barrel and kept in stasis, as well?

Snakes in a barrel, indeed! Go to Comment

Pretty cool. I like the twisted humor of the Helgii screws every thing up. As adventurers should remember... wish is often synonymous with trap... Go to Comment
