An aquatic spear made of shaped coral.

A Spikespear is a long barbed spear made from a type of coral and used mostly by the People of the Coral, allthough Shura have also been known to use it. The *handle* is prefectly safe to hold once it has been properly shaped with stone tools, a process that takes about a day,  but the *blade* is made of sharp and poisonus coral that can rip an Aquan Man of War apart, and do serious harm to other beings too. The wounds from such a weapon often get infected to the point that amputation is nesscessary. As well as a weapon it is a great hunting tool.

Once allowed to dry on land however, the coral blade dies and blunts and the handle becomes brittle and will crumble iif used in combat, so it is used only by the underwater races.

Spears make sense for an underwater race, due to the problems of water resistance. How rare is the coral?

Quite common.Common enough to equip large numbers with it.

Hey Cheka - might want to add a little (lot) more to this one, or fold it into a larger sub.

This feels like a scroll entry rather then a sub I'm afraid.

I'm sure that there can be some improvements to this one - the basic idea is kind of cool, but needs a lot more flesh on it.

They always ask for improvements, don't they? (Okay, I am guilty of that as well.)

So where to improve... how about noting the regional differences in the material, and the effect of the composition of various waters? Skilled warriors could learn much about an opponent from his weapon. So his spear comes from the reef yonder, but traveled far into the South, and was in the depths for a long time; broken and repaired many times... there is one name that comes to mind. There is still potential here.

The air had grown chill the minute they descended into the strange valley, which was unmarked on any of their maps. It was so strange here, devoid of animal life and completely silent. The horses were nervous the entire journey through the vale. As they set about to collect firewood for the campfire they could hear their own voices as dim echoes through the eerie silence.

The food didn't taste anything that evening and their sleep was cold and troubled by nightmares. While they are clearing camp the next morning, one of them stumbles over a piece of stone jutting out of the ground nearby the horses. On closer inspection there seems to be runes engraved into the polished surface. The symbols true meaning is no more known among mere mortals and if they decide to dig deeper, they will discover that it is an ancient altar buried within the soil.

Any historically oriented party member will recognize the largest symbol to be the insignia of the powerful warlock who ruled this realm several centuries ago. At their departure from the area, something will seem amiss with one of the party members and all will remember the stories of the warlock's thousand curses.
