Ouch. Now that is a bad bomb if I have ever seen one, and nicely disguised, too. At least, I would think that it takes great expense and a lot of time (and magical power) to create, so it is not going to be produced very often. Still it is a dangerous toy.

Plot hook: one major bombing like the above was successful, the knowledge spreads quickly, and everywhere start people in charge getting concerned about possible security risks. If a rumour of another prepared attack gets out, people may start to panic, and act really weird around chainmails (or any armours, actually!). This may even lead to a rapid dislike of chainmails.

Interesting piece. Did not really need the story, but it is a nice touch.

Does any other mage know how to make these, or are they only the work of one man (so once he is dead, these pass into history (or do soon after)? Go to Comment

Another great item iwhished i ad thought of it. I can see an evil empire outfitting some of its men with this, mixed with regular armor, and programmed to go of if they try to surrender to the rebels... Go to Comment

"and the assassin will have no problem handing over his weapons at the door..."- nice!!

This is weird, I again loved the effect/power more than the history, just as I did your last item, though the history is good. I think it is more a nod to the armor's ingenuity! I love it because of all of the possible applications in game-play it conjures up. Nice work valaddar!

A suicide bomber, minus the suicide. :P Go to Comment

Any specific suggestions on the histories? The LongSpear had a different style (mythic) then this one and I've been trying out a more technobabblish one here.

The histories are what I've been trying to develop for these submissions and admittedly they need work. Go to Comment

Heh, you should see the Platemail version.... :)

Yes, these items are generally one-off constructions. They are very expensive (that is why the target in the backstory was a king) and need suprise to be effective. Once mages know what to look for, these suits lose their effectiveness. Go to Comment

Heh, some people complain if there is no story!

In any case, I would let the GM decide on how well they are known. Their power is increased by their rarity. In this case, only Kagerith knows the way to make these suits (he has apprentices, but he is jealous of his secrets, so they only know part of the process). If his written works were stolen, then other mages could carry on with production. Go to Comment

Fun. Quick. And very useful. A very handy weapon. Leaves me curious on why Tryvaard was sucked down by skeletal hands though. Would make me cautious of using it if I knew the legend. Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2006-08-27 10:05 AM
This story resonates with the myths of Greece, of Perseus and the sea monster, and of Odysseus and Polyphemus the Cyclops. I like the power of the spear, and how Tryvaard himself was collected by the capiricious mountain spirits. There could certainly be some sort of notion that Tryvaard will one day return when his service to the Mountain is done, and who knows what wisdom and magic he might return with. Go to Comment
