Tree-of-Blades

By:

The Tree-of-Blades (along with the infamous dragonsword, with which we are not concerned here) is the signature weapon and symbol of the Dragonfighters of Mount Taris. It is also known as the Dragonfighter axe, or as the txarian (this name, pronounced “char-EE-ahn”, comes from Txarian Tapolosthes, the feared Chilliarch of the Dragonfighters, who led the his people in a series of short but vicious wars against the Mysians).

Full Item Description
The Tree-of-Blades is best described as a warclub. It is a length of wood, generally 3.5-4.5 feet long (though sometimes as long as 6 feet, in extreme cases; Dragonfighters are known for their enormous stature), with generally a foot or foot and a half of leather-wrapped handle, and heeled at the pommel with metal. Along the length of the club, at regular intervals, there are viciously-curved, leaf-shaped blades, off-setting each other, giving the appearance of the sharpened leaves of a tree (giving the weapon it’s most frequent name); the club is topped with a trio of blades in the form of the crown of a tree. Much of a Tree-of-Blades’ length is usually bound in bronze, and it is a symbol of pride among Dragonfighters to keep the blades of one’s club as sharp and bright as possible.

History
This fearsome weapon is rarely seen beyond the bounds of Dragonfighter territory in these times; since the final defeat of Txarian’s forces by the Mysians at the battle of Mount Phraion, the Tarisians have been seldom seen by any Agera, in fact.

Magic/Cursed Properties
None.

Nasty, ruthless weapon. Don't swing it onto your shoulder to hold it, that is for sure. How would you store that?

Very carefully, I think.

I think I voted upon this a while ago. But it at least deserves one. This and the entire codex it is part of.

A good example of what some books call a holy-water sprinkler, others a morning star(!) and others just a spiked club.

I like your name and description better.

Bag on a Stick

Very simple gag but a great one, since it can be used multiple times over, even in the same adventure. Great for tribal natives gone restless and humanoids, but anyone can have set this up. Just what the header says, a simple bag over a stick stuck in the ground or floor.

As GM you can place the bag on a stick anywhere, in a floor crack the heroes have passed before, outdoors in a clearing or path, or at the edge of the PCs' encampment the following morning, what have you. Place anything on the stick - a coiled yellow viper angered by the bag removal, mini crossbow w/poison, transdermal hallucinatory drug dusted on the bag, yellow mold colony, an NPC ally's head, a weapon, scroll tube or satchel, what have you.

The idea is to build tension and/or stall for time/distract the party. Provided it's used properly, you'll be amazed at how paranoid players will get from this simple gag.
