Heart Bow


Kayvlee or Hewhoshootsrunningmoonsgame moved with a smoother motion than his normal flowing motion. Perhaps it is more practiced. The swirl of his traveling cloak. It made no sound. The draw of the bow, as fluid as a broad deep river, faster than the wind, if I blinked I would of missed it. The arrow glowed. I didn’t even see him pull it. It streaked like a beam of sunlight through a parking cloud. It struck the Fell beasts. It staggered back. He pulled an arrow. Nocked in a smooth motion. The arrow head began to glow that magical green glow that only those with The Sight can see. The second flew, like a falling star. A third was knocked as the beast roared and dropped to one knee. The stream of sparks trailed to its left eye. It tell back and moved no more.

Full Item Description
A Heartbow is a graceful curved wooden bow, more of a poem made form than an utilitarian made of blonde

Developed Bow, used by Elventi but some other peoples have done so.

Like so many Elventi things, the origins of the HeartBow are lost to the first swirls of first time.  

Early charm of Fey or Elventi origin.

It is a charm cast upon a tree, effecting its Heart Wood. The soul of bow is formed into a mystic seed. That seed is set into the heartwood of a strong wood tree. 

A bow magically grown in the heart of a tree. The tree is magically opened and the bow removed. (Sometimes a two if a close set has earned a bow, but that is mostly bardic tales). The tree has the power of life and the power of the spirit it bonds with.

Magic/Cursed Properties
Adding more punch to bowshot, strength and purity of conviction determines the punch.
Some can allow for shots without arrows

Allowing owner to learn certain charms of spells

Hu's Iron Ball

       By: Murometz

Hu was an ambassador of the Seventh Emperor of the Reng Dynasty. Throughout his life he traveled across many miles and lands to entreaty with neighboring kingdoms and the semi-savages who dwelled amidst the Metal Mountains.

During one such diplomatic mission, Hu was gifted a small iron marble as a gesture, by a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe. Little else is known of Hu, but that marble was lost and is now somewhere out there for someone to find.

A tiny, shiny sphere, the marble has several properties. First and foremost it is a strong magnet, considerably stronger than its size and density would indicate.

Secondly, if thrown or rolled upon the ground and the command word is spoken, the iron ball will magically enlarge to either the size of an ogres's head or to that of a great globe, twelve feet in diameter. The rolling ball of either size will continue to roll or fly at the same relative speed it was when launched as a marble, and can thus cause great damage to anything in its path. The magnetic power of the ball will also magnify when enlarged.

Legends claim that the ball has been tossed from besieged castles upon attacking foes and rolled at marching armies in ages past. At the end of such rolls, the larger size globe has been known to not only crush soldiers underfoot, but to also "collect" many dozens of metallic weapons and bits of armor unto itself, appearing as an armored sphere, with swords and spears sticking out from it in all directions.

Owning this powerful marble has its drawbacks. Anyone carrying it on their person, will experience the iron ball's insidious effects after some time. The owner feels no worse for wear, but after two month's time they will suddenly awaken one morning to find that their hair has fallen out completely, their teeth loosened like baby's teeth ready to drop, and their fingernails simply shriveled and sliding off the fingers and toes. Perhaps unbeknownst to the owner at first, the iron ball also renders an owner sterile or barren by this time.

Regular clerical healing will not reverse this horrible malady. Only finding and beseeching a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe to heal the iron ball's effects with their particular brand of magic, will work.

Hu's Iron Ball should be handled carefully by players and gms.
