Mmmm, battlefield magic... always nice to see another product of that line. My favourite were the Fortress Bricks - simple, but with many, many uses. (Can't vote, duh.) Go to Comment

A good all purpose scroll. Remember if you find something that qualifies for it, link the two. Go to Comment

All in all, a codex for war creations seems obvious, yet never done before. Most of these I can see finding use in various places. I rather like it. Nice work on each of the ideas. Those four scroll items are themselves a nice piece of work. More would be nice. Go to Comment

Fortress Bricks

These small bricks appear as small stone blocks 8" inches long, 2" wide and 3" high.

Magical Properties

When a command is given (generally enscribed on the top of the block), it will increase in size up to 4' long, 1' wide and 18" high. If it encounters solid material (including flesh) while expanding, it will cease expanding in that direction. Where they touch stone, they will meld into it. The expansion is actually a restoration of their original size, and so cannot be reversed (except via the magical process that created the small verisons in the first place).

These bricks were originally intended for use to build field fortifications and bridges, as well as to repair stonework. They found that these stones were used for many other purposes, including:

1. Being dropped from castle walls (and flying mounts) onto enemies - the command to expand given prior to impact.

2. Walling in enemies (Ala. A Casque of Amontillado)

3. Booby trap contruction (much easier to create deadfall traps)

4. Capsizing ships (An infiltrator could bring a number onboard and unbalance the ship once expanded)

5. Choking large monsters (Thrown into the monsters mouth before activation. It will stop expanding when it hits the sides of the throat,but has a good chance of choking the affected monster. Go to Comment

Pike of the Hedgehog

The pike of the hedgehoge appears as long, bronze-tipped spear of ancient design. A short spike has been fitted to the butt end of the weapon and numerous bronze-inlaid runes run the length of the shaft.

Magical Properties

When base of the weapons is thrust into the ground, a ring of pikes (10' radius inside the pikes) will appear around the user. The pikes appear in 3 layers, similar to a phalanx, but are 360 degrees around the user.

The pikes extend 10' from the ground and so the total area forms a 40' diameter circle. It takes about 10 seconds for the phalanx to form.

If more then one such pike is used, the rings will merge, allowing a larger protected area. Each Pike provides about 60 linear feet of pikes.


The pikes will not thrust but will move to block any attempt to penetrate the ring. An attacker would need to destroy a large number of the pikes to be able to bypass them.

They provide no defence to the user against missle attacks, but could devastate a charging opponent. Go to Comment

The Bronze Falcon

This animated bronze falcon was designed to protect officers and magi against stray arrows.
It will fly near the individuals it is ordered to protect and will attempt to either snatch or block with its body, missile weapons directed against it's charges.

It is unsuitable for underground/indoor use unless the room in question is very large indeed. The falcon is quite manuverable, but in close proximity to walls/ceilings its capability is greatly reduced.

It is very tough and should be able to parry/block many missiles before being knocked out of commission. Go to Comment

Snaplinks

Perhaps one of the simplest items of magic in the Armory, the snaplink is a small, ensorcelled metal ring which, upon command, will spring open. Another command will cause the link to close once again.

The ring can hold at least a ton of weight before it will sunder and be destroyed.

The link, being so simple, can be used for many purposes, for example:

1. Quick release systems for securing cargo on wagons.
2. Booby traps (of course)
3. Quick release of armor or other pieces of equipment.
4. Locks (so long as command words are kept secure)
5. Binding prisoners with normal chains held together by these links. Go to Comment

There would be bulletin board at larger cities, as well as wanted posters and similiar things at taverns and the like. If the players check out the large tree in the marked place that is pinned full of edicts, wanted posters and public announcements, this could be a nice recource indeed. I like this and will try to add if I can! Go to Comment

Guinea Pigs


Desperate for cash? Down on your luck?
We pay good gold for test subjects!

Enquire at the Poisoner's Guild, Street of Arcana in Talabar.



This is for real. The local Poisoner's guild (which also works on most types of potions) is looking for human guinea pigs for testing their potions. In most cases this should not be lethal, but anything short of that could be the result. One could use the Flawed Potions submission to generate the effects of test potions... Go to Comment
