Needing to speed up magical item creation, Phillip Thornblood made this staff to glue, bind, weld, melt, or even smash things together.

Phillip Thornblood liked to make things, but sometimes the things he wanted to make, didn’t want to be made.  Like the time he tried to make a meat powered gear box out of a lion’s stomach, and a clock.   Or the time he made a road paver out of the eyes of a medusa and a giant slug.  Or even just trying to bind living wood with stone.  Needless to say, these things did not work out very well at all, but never one to be dismayed by a minor setback or two, Thornblood came up with this staff, which he uses to,well, just make things fit together.
The staff is made of a thin pillar stone that a sapling oak grew around, and is covered in a finely made cage of iron, holding it all together.

Magical Properties:

The staff can make two or more things fit, or merge, or just hold, together forever.  Over the course of his experimentation with the staff it was found that trying to merge things with a spell already cast on them, was not a good idea.  And because of the massive power requirements to get,say,a layer of iron to stay on that blasted bird, Thornblood used ‘fuel’(in my campaign it involves magic, gems, and small animals dancing) to power it for the bigger things, however just getting two pieces of cloth to stick together is not a big issue for the staff at all.

I like it but its a teeny weeny bit short. I really liked the way he tried to make a meat powered gear box out of a lion's stomach, and a clock. That was genius.

This is pretty cool, and could be a lot better with work!

I really like this idea and the backstory with it. I just wish that it was a little better defined, to make it easier to use in game. Some ideas on what I'm looking for: limitations on use (times per day, weight or size of objects, types of objects this works and doesn't work on, etc), duration of the effect (are they fused together permanently, or are they just stuck for a short time?), whether or not its possible to cancel the effect, and examples of how the staff was used in the past (a short history with different wielders would be nice). I would really love to see this piece developed some more, since it's such a cool idea!

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.
