Jiklud's Axe


A well worn ornamental axe that has been used beyond its intended ritual uses. Reason being that it has an aura around it that negates all magic.

Jiklud was a dwarven king with an overpowering disgust for magic. A magic item that exploded killed his father and Jiklud vowed that he would never go in such a way. Hating magic and not wanting to have a wizard create an item for him, he nevertheless contracted for an axe to be made.

The exchange and contract was held entirely by emissary so the wizard took creative license with the order and had an ornamental axe created which lowered his cost instead of a true axe as requested. By the time it was noticed it was too late and the wizard disappeared with the payment further causing Jiklud to hate wizards.

Since then he contracted another axe that truly meets his specifications and let the ornamental axe be traded among others without care.
Magical Properties:The axe has an aura of 5ft around it in all directions that negates all magic. It doesn’t destroy the item but renders it useless while in the area of influence. Any spells attempted to be cast inside the area have the effect of a peasant trying to cast. The aura remains whether or not it is held.

With a little more work, backstory and history and description this may just be a very nice item.

It's good. I expected it to be some sort of room-wide antimagic that instantly kills anything that has ever been exposed to magic. You know the kind created by a half-elf half-dark elf half dragon half mermaid etc?

Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised when I read that it only canceled magic in a 5ft diameter.

A nasty gift to give to a mage.

Castoria, Land of Shattered Stars

       By: Veretrix

Castoria was once a thriving and prosperous nation, a rich trade center for the surrounding lands. This all changed when, on one fateful night nearly a century ago, the Mist of Eternity rolled in and surrounded the land, obscuring more of the outside world as days and nights passed.

By the time the Mist blocked out the sun, a new light shone during what was assumed to be daytime: The Starpoint Spire, a mysterious place atop Castoria's highest peak in the northern-central region. Some say that there is some sort of building atop the mountain shining the dim "sunlight" onto the land, but it is only ever too bright or too dark to fully make out any structure, not to mention the mountain's immense height.

Not a month after the Spire's light lit up, the stars fell. Flaming rocks and debris from far-flung edges of space plummeted downward onto the eastern region of Castoria. Once the shower subsided, a strange energy from within the fallen stars transformed the eastern lands in what are now known as The Voidwastes, a barren gray land littered with craters and strange alien creatures (these can vary, but I had Pathfinder's Akatas in mind).

To the south, strange mechanism of eldritch origin are again at work after aeons of rest in the Ruins of Kchuthngnl, an ancient city of non-human creation that is estimated by scholars to be no less that five millennia old.

To the west, the once peaceful and serene forest, now known as The Plagued Woods, has been experiencing corruptions of the wildlife and humanoids living there. Some humans have reported creatures that appear not unlike a halfling, except that they can open their mouths to massive proportions to swallow creatures the size of an ogre.

When adventurers and citizens alike try to make an escape from Castoria, they are never seen again, and it is utterly unknown whether they found hopeful sanctuary or agonizing death withing the Mist's depths.

What is unknown to all residents of Castoria is that all of these events occurred because of the actions of a secret but powerful cult loyal to the Elder Gods who call the space between the planes their abhorrent home. The cult still lives on, larger than ever, and their plan is for the alien horrors to incubate and thrive within the dome of mist that now envelops Castoria, so that when the Elder Gods return as the cult's prophecy foretells, they will have an army of blasphemous creation at their disposal that they will use to make war with and enslave the denizens of the Material Plane.
