Full Item Description
The chain spear looks quite odd. The actual spear is made of strong steel. The end of it is linked to a long chain that goes through a thick steel belt. The belt has shoulder straps for its wearer. It is mildly heavy, but light armor can still be worn under it.
The chain spear was made in the city of Berenha. The city was busy, rich. It was a time of war however, and the city was suffering greatly. So, in a bid to end the war quickly, many weapon smiths invented new weapons for their armies. Some great creations came from Berenha, the twinblade, Claymore, and halberd were some of the weapons that quickly spread throughout the world. But there were also many failed weapons, one of which was the chain spear.
The prototype was made by an unknown smith, but all who have held the weapon praise him as a god. The smith had made it to reduce the cost of creating spears. His idea was to make a device that could allow a spear to hit targets, and then come back to the owner. This way one would never have to use another spear. His first design included a crank to retract the spear, but he realized it would take too long to pull it back. So, he contacted a wizard.
He made a model of the chain spear before he visited the unknown wizard. It had a steel spear with a chain an shoulder belt. He asked the wizard to enchant the device to work to his satisfaction. Within minutes the chain spear was finished. The wizard told the smith that to retract the spear the wearer would have to simply say ‘retract’ while wearing the belt. The smith was going to present his weapon, when Berenha was attacked by enemy forces. A soldier found and took the chain spear, using it in battle. He was eventually killed in war, and the weapon fell into unknown hands.
It was sold many times throughout history, until it landed in the hands of a hunter by the name of Kaiser. Kaiser made a living off of animal pelts, and when he saw the chainspear on his travels, he bought it. He used it for many years, becoming a master at it. He became well known as the chain hunter, people have even tried to learn from him. Only now, in his old age, is he accepting students to learn from him. It is said he will give the chain spear to his greatest student.
Kaiser lives on huge grounds by the (insert name) woods. There he will hold a training program on spears. The pc will have to have considerable skill to even enter his land. They will have to pass a test or two to get become a student, and then train there for a small while. If they are the most skilled by the end of a set amount of days they are put to train with the chain spear. After they master the chain spear they will have to fight Kaiser to win the chain spear.
The chain spear can be thrown a long distance, and by saying ‘retract’ the one in its possession will see it reverse its course.
