Tyrnithi Arrows

By:

A bundle of Tyrnithi arrows. Rare and highly prized by Archers in this Lands.

Full Item Description
The Tyrnithi are a shy, retiring folk of the Farther South, who are renowned throughout the Summer Lands (and spoken of by traders to the northerly lands) as the finest archers in the world. Somehow, a bundle of their arrows, very finely-made, has found its way this far north from their homeland.

These arrows are long, thin, made of a dark-reddish wood, and feathered with iridescent green feathers. The heads of the arrows are frog-crotch style rather than the typical “arrowhead” shape; that is, they are shaped like a letter “Y”. They are made of some sort of closely-chipped, light stone which is grey with thin veins of yellow.

Magic/Cursed Properties
None, though people swear they are magical in the way they fly.

A nice feature. Can anyone say "master crafted arrows"? I knew all you D20 and Gurps players could.

These things would be considered magical, even if they are not, as they are extremely rare and so much better than the normal arrows found in the Land.

Very good, but very short.

Ditto. Not every good weapon has to be magic.

Nice non-magical item.

Personally I often prefer this type of thing to the magical stuff.

Good detail. Love this kind of stuff. Had an entire thread on my old, abandoned norwegian forum. Too bad my student days are gone, because I would have loved to have reposted the Coldforged Items thread in its entirety

Order of the Moonbeard

       By: valadaar

Among the assortment of organized criminals who live in the great city, few command greater fear the Moonbeard Order.

They of course do not call themselves that, but have earned the moniker from their fashion of dying their large beards with lye to produce a distinctive crescent shape running from earlobe to earlobe. This is meant as a taunt for their enemies, for it clearly outlines their throats.

They also wear garb similar to the northern tribesman, carefully tooled leather and showing multiple, colourful glyphs.

They are feared due to the intense discipline that their group maintains, due to their origins as a warrior-sect.

They serve as paid thugs, enforcers and assassins within the city, with the client simply ordering a service from the organization, not hiring an individual. Apart from making the request and providing payment in full in advance, the order completes the assignment themselves.

Their order has many moles through the organizations of the city, and more than a couple of nobles. As such, no organized move has been made against them since their chief activity is directed against other members of the crime world. It is said that their services have been useful for those in power as well, further protecting them from persecution.

Their religion holds that their time in this world is vanishingly brief, and largely unimportant except as training for the Great Battle.

The order is very utilitarian with weapons choice - they simply use the tool needed for the occasion, though not without having trained extensively with it beforehand. Daggers, garrottes, swords, bows, battle axes, polearms, wagons, even siege engines have been used to carry out their contracts.
