King Inturt's Chain


The original armor of King Inturt. Was lost to him on a long past campaign when he was captured by his enemy. When rescued they couldn’t find his armor or weapons. If found, he would pay a hefty ransom for its return. Sentimental value.

It is common chain mail with 5 rows of gold trim along the bottom of the chain shirt. Along either arm is a row of 3 gold rows of links that follow the arm up and meat at his neck where 3 more gold rows of links surround the neck.

The mail was lost on the last campaign the King went on. He was expertly captured and ransomed by an unknown group. The ransom being paid, they released the King but kept all his belongings, including the chain. Now the King wants it back.

The suit of chain was King Inturt’s father’s mail and his father’s father and so on for many generations. While the mail is not incredibly strong, it holds much importance in the kings reckoning.

Most any person over thirty will most likely recognize the chain mail if shown it. Very few armorers will not recognize it if it the players try and sell it.

Probably be more used as loot the players find. Then when somebody notices them wearing it or carrying it they could get into some trouble.

I like the description of the armor, but you should give more rich detail of the back story and the motivations.

Well, I guess that at that point, the citadel needed posts..

A minor piece, but this could certainly be the hook for a larger adventure: "So you say you found this armor in an Orc hoard, eh? Well, I might be willing to go easy on you if you take care of this little problem I have with the kingdom next door. I can't get involved directly, you understand..."

Book of the Gods

       By: MysticMoon

This tome looks like a haphazard collection of random notes on different types of paper stitched together and bound within a wooden cover. The pages describe all of the 300,000 gods of the world, each in the language of the people who worship them. The book is stored high in the mountains, kept safe by an order of monks. Reading the entire book confers a deep understanding on the nature of the cosmos and access to incredible power. This only works, however, if it is read without translation, meaning that the reader must master each language contained within. The various monks know these languages but there is typically only one alive at a time who knows them all. This monk would be an excellent source of information and/or magic. IF the PCs learn about it; IF they can find the monastery; IF they can convince the monks to help them; AND if they can understand the convoluted riddle given as an answer.
