Gravestompers

By:

Some say you can’t keep a good undead down.  They’ve obviously not come face to foot with these boots.

Full Item Description
Gravestompers are a pair of calf-high boots made from a glossy black leather.  On the outwards facing side of each boot is a series of clips which one adjust the leather straps through in order to tighten or loosen the boot, but each clip also holds a silver bullet which can be removed by firmly tugging on the "bottom" of the bullet, which is facing upwards.

At the top and in the centre of the boot is a silver mechanical clip (like a seatbelt) that has a cross or other holy symbol engraved on it.

On the toe and heal of the boots is a silver plate that has a similar symbol on them.  Though the metal plate does not cover the whole sole of the boot, there is enough of the plate on either end of the boot that clinking can be heard when someone walks in these boots.

(by on the heal of the boot, I mean that it is on the back of the boot as well as the bottom of the boot where the heal is)

History
Orignally, these boots were made by someone who wanted to make a quick profit by selling these boots to warrior priest , paladins and the like but they become so popular that before too long religious organizations were making them themselves.

Magic/Cursed Properties
No real magical properties, however one could easily adjust the boots to effect the undead or enchant them to give them bonus damage op top of what is given by kicking or stomping with these boots.

An interesting idea, though these boots tickle the back of my brain like I should know they are from somewhere else (Castlevania perhaps? or Trinity Blood?). The initial use as a quick sell to religious types giving over to the religious types making them themselves is a nice touch. All in all, short but good work.

Gravestompers... sounds like a cool brand name. :)

I can hear the players ask "So who can bless my boots?"


Funny and good.

I think it might have been Kane the puritan who wore something similar. Need to dig out my old Conan's to check..

Amusing!

To me, a standard 3.0 piece although I agree the name is very fitting and has an enhancing effect on the piece.

Cool idea; this is what you get your priest who goes for that certain look. I could see a variety of these with different enchantments.

Coinlake

       By: Murometz

Coinlake sits perched between two sheer cliffs in the Stigrani range, and is difficult to find, much less approach. Four miles long and two across, the water is a vibrant cyan blue. The lake's shoreline is an unassuming beach of gray pebbles, and its mean depth is seventy feet. The rare times when the sun makes its way between the cliffs and shines over the the still water, one could see clearly the lake's rock-strewn bottom.

Strangely, no fish or aquatic life can be found here.

At night, a peculiar phenomena occurs. When the night sky is clear, the moon and stars are reflected in the lake's surface, but if one were to look at the surface from a high vantage point, the reflection does not match the firmament above!

Instead the water's surface reflects the night sky of some other distant world and seventeen shining golden moons besides, each ones shimmering upon the water like so many gold coins!

Legends whisper that Coinlake is not a lake at all, but a gate or nexus, to some distant alien world.

The mystery has long remained unsolved, and only recently has the Arch-Duke commissioned an expedition to uncover the secret of Coinlake once and for all. Among the team members are several scholars of the Nascent Academy, an astrologer from the Occultists Guild, and of course the PCs, acting as body guards.
