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

I've been thinking these would work really well mounted on chariots...

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

Guards need - Discretion Required

The_Wizards_Cache By Scrasamax

Guard Duty - Sometimes the gold has to be moved, and hired muscle is more feasible that using layer upon layer of temperamental magic to protect a shipment. The PCs have to guard a gold shipment, or even stand guard on the Keep itself as a show of ability on the side of the Cache. Go to Comment

Wulfhere's comment on 2007-02-23 02:58 PM
In the introduction, you raise a significant point: The "Help Wanted" advertisement is not a very promising way to involve the player characters. In order to make the most of these adventure seeds, perhaps each could have several possible hooks, with only one linked to the central theme. As an example, the Join the Circus scroll could state:

1.) While the PCs are in a small and unexciting village, the Carnival of Forgotten Souls arrives. An intolerant local religious leader, incensed at their licentious displays, preaches in the Village Common, stirring up trouble and urging that "those heathen scum" should be run out of town.

2.) The PCs encounter a pair of sideshow freaks being harassed by local bravos. If they intervene, the Carnival's ringmaster will hear of it and offer them work.

3.) The PCs encounter the Carnival on the road, where a poorly maintained bridge has collapsed while they were crossing a rain-swollen river. Several of the carnival staff and draft animals are injured, while the carts themselves are damaged and stuck on the broken bridge.

The first option would carry the theme of public announcements, while the others involve "help wanted" in other ways. Go to Comment

dark_dragon's comment on 2007-09-29 07:33 AM
Actually, an adventurer's guild could easily have a job-board, where the local citizens come and post their requests.

This works quite well if you have a not-so-regular session, or if you sometimes loose members. Bigger plots can be woven in, but you can still have some fun if a member is late or absent. (ie: it works like a comic book episode)

I can can visualise a large group of guild members crowding the board after a very well paid job has been posted, craning their necks to look at the description and the dangers. A party who took this job (and the risks) would not only gain the reward, but also the admiration and respect of the other groups.

Its also a great way for parties who are short on cash to earn enough to pay the inn, by getting rid of some pests, for example. If you have played fable, the xbox/pc game, it worked really well in there, and each small adventure can itself be a hook to a much bigger campaign. Go to Comment

manfred's comment on 2006-09-22 01:27 PM
Items do not have to be PC items - though this can be certainly used by the PCs. And even with some silly applications, this is a serious battlefield item. With a dozen of these (which, alas, are hard to come by nowadays), you get an instant volley of arrows. Well-aimed, it guarantees a massacre in the right place.

Good work. Go to Comment
