The Retainer's Sword

By:

The Ducal Retainers of Urania who patrol the ever moving Twilight Zone, carry special swords that only they may legally carry.

The Ducal Retainers of Urania who patrol the ever moving Twilight Zone, carry special swords that only they may legally carry.

The hilts are of glowstone and there are glowstones set in the guard, along with a number and name of the Retainer who was issued with it. The glowstones act as a limited light sworce and provide warmth. Not a lot of warmth, just enough to prevent the hand that holds it from getting numb with cold, should the Retainer enter the Darkside for any reason. The iron blades are a foot long. Should an outsider be found with one of these swords, he or she will at the very least be taken in for questioning as to how it came into his or her possession. At worst the outsider could be slain on the spot.

That's a nice idea. No idea who the ducal retainers are, but the swords are cool! I love the attention to detail, especially the hand warmers, and you covered all the possibilities of someone stealing it. A little short, and I would have liked a little history or story, but overall a good solid and realistic item!

I could of sworn I voted on this before. Here we go to correct that oversite. This weapon was attached to a setting/ world Cheka was creating which had an extremely odd rotation (thus darkness and winter came quickly), thus the glow stones.

A good start - I'd like to see a lot more though.

As the PCs travel the road, right after a bend they hear a sharp whistle and call: "Heeey, not so lazy, move your asses!" It is a large man that calls, and there are unwilling workers that listen. A small company, 10-15 men work on the road, push boulders aside, dig up roots from under the road, etc. The large man that shouted turns to you, smiles fast and mutters something under his breath, sounds like cursing some lazy worker. "Where does the road bring you from, travellers?" And does a little small-talk.

And what is really happening? A group of bandits is 'adapting' the road for shady purposes. The road will not be wider, but tighter, with enough cover around (and a few traps perhaps), and will become an ideal spot for ambushing travellers or entire caravans. The bandit leader wants them all to appear harmless. The 'lazy worker' he cursed was actually a guard that should give warning before any travellers come around (fallen asleep). Not surprisingly, the boss may decide for an ambush even now.
