Intersting idea with even execution. I would of liked a few more applications as to what kind of electrical traps and so on it was used for. We don't get a feel for the amount of power this is. Depending on a gamesystem, skill outweights spell channels, so I needed more examples on that to use this as more than just an inspiration.
Oddly enough, when i read the part about erosion in the poles, the first thing I though of was that it would likely be the mithril pole degrading first since it is the less dense metal. I like the idea alot and it really fits into my K'ton world view. Go to Comment
I can see these being used by dwarven warriors as a weapon, seeing as humanoid bodies ARE conductive. Just poke them with it and deal fifty bagillion volts of pure energy, more fun than playing with a house circuit. Go to Comment
This is just a great sentence...
"The Dwarven Lightning bottle is a carefully crafted magical battery with a Mithral Anode, an Adamantite Cathode and Dragon’s Blood for the electrolyte."
