The Chain Arrow

By:

Also known as the Equalizer.

These exceptionally well crafted arrows bear a powerful enchantment. If the first target they strike is slain, they will overpenetrate and will attack another nearby target. This carries on until it misses, or there are no targets in short range. Each link drops the accuracy of the arrow by 25%. The additional targets are selected at random so firing into mixed melee is inadvisable.

This arrow helps skilled archers to kill multiple weak foes, though as it provides no additional damage, is of limited use against powerful opponents.

Once the arrow misses, all enchantment is lost.

Nice. I've come across this arrow in that dungeon crawl game...Den of Monsters i think it was called. I like the "if miss, enchantment lost" bit.

1,000 of these given to an archer troupe could wreck havoc!!

Cool little idea. Kinda weird that the targets after the first one don't have to be in a straight line -- it just functions like Chain Lightning, from what I understand. Scary self-guiding arrow is scary.

Exactly. It is no more accurate then the original archer, and with a cumulative penalty to hit it should miss quickly. That it cannot distinguish allies makes it dangerous at short range, since the archer could potentially qualify as target.

Not sure how true to the spirit of the 100 word challenge it is to clarify in comments.

So it goes all the way through the enemy to continue its hunt? Ouch.

Cold Comfort

       By: Murometz

Cold Comfort is a long-sword of star-steel, its blade giving off a wan, blueish light. Its grip is wrapped tightly in snow-serpent hide, and its pommel bears a single opalescent gemstone.

This blade is enchanted in such a way, that whoever wields it, begins to fall completely and irrevocably "in love" with the weapon. This love does not manifest itself as the expected reverence and bond formed between any warrior and his weapon, but as a deeper, truer love, one has for a soul-mate of the same species! The longer the wielder carries Cold Comfort the stronger and more disturbing this love becomes, and only the most powerful of magicks can potentially break the sword's insidious spell. The blade's owner will even speak to and coo to the weapon, convinced that the sword understands and returns this epic love.

If the blade's wielder somehow loses the weapon or has it taken away, they will become inconsolable, and will predictably go to "ends of the earth and back" to retrieve it at any cost. Such is the weapon's curse that even separation from it does not damper the feelings the owner has for the sword. Legends tell of several distraught and mind-addled knights who even years after losing the blade, still wander the country-side searching for their lost love. And woe be to the "new lover" if and when they find him or her.
