I have made the appropriate adjustments to the first and last entry of magical items that I just posted yesterday. They are now fully balanced and accurate.



May all your learning be free and unfettered

No need for a special post, Sage. I saw the changes without you pointing them out.

I realise that, but some of the other customers have emailed me about informing them of any changes to items both new and old by making the relevant post in the Shop.

Well, as promised I have some new additions. Included in this cache is a special spell I designed on-the-fly during last nights gaming session.

The new items should be up soon.

Here's the new spell I have been working on. I'll admit that it may need some improvements, since I really haven't had time to test it properly yet.

Glimmer
Abjuration
Level: Sor/Wiz 1
Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1 minute
Range: Personal
Duration: 1 hour or until dispelled/discharged
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: None

This spell causes the fields of probability to off-balance around the caster. This has the result of protecting the caster from attacks. Any one opponent who attempts to target the caster for an attack is penalised by a 25% chance of missing when attacking. Once the attack has been made, whether successful or not, the spell is then discharged.

All non-targeted attacks penalised by the chance to miss upon the bearer suffer a 1 hp per die of damage reduction. This also results in the discharging of the spell as above.


Material Component: a probability cube

Here's another new magical item -

Quill of Arcana
This irregularly fashioned reddish-grey cockatrice quill is the sole possession of the Sage of Perth. It was crafted during the brief period (brief for a being composed of purely psionic eternal energies given physical form) that the Sage worked as a Loremaster for the Temple of Oghma in Suzail, 300 years ago. The reddish plummage of the quill is offset by the small collection of grey feathers at the base of the quill before the point. This quill could be a a boon to all who live by the use of magic.

Caster Level: 5th
Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, creator PC must a total of 5 ranks in spellcraft, knowledge (arcana), and decipher script skills
Market Price: 7,564 gp
Special:
When the Quill of Arcana is held inverted within the bearers hand, it grants the bearer a +5 competence bonus to all spellcraft, knowledge (arcana), and decipher script skill checks.

Here's the last new addition for today -

Razor Battle Gloves
Both of these crudely crafted black-chainmail gloves have four metal lengths of sharpened blades that extend out from the gloves to a length of five inches. Each blade is positioned above each knuckle of the bearers hand.

Caster Level: 11th
Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, mage armor, keen edge
Market Price: 93,235 gp
Cost to Create: 47,321 gp + 2,315 XP
Special:
These battle gloves function as +2 keen spiked gloves. They also grant a +2 armor bonus as per bracers of armor. The glove-blades do 1d4+2 slashing damage.

Here is the new spell. It was inspired by my work on a new Aurilite Temple I am designing for an upcoming campaign.

Coldburst Sphere
Evocation [Cold]
Level: Sor/Wiz 6, Clr 6
Components: V, S, M/DF
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Long (200ft+40ft/level)
Area: 10ft/level-radius burst
Duration: Instantenous
Saving Throw: Reflex half
Spell Resistance: Yes

Coldburst Sphere generates a sphere of freezing cold ice surrounded by a swirling cloud of chilled mist. The sphere will explode quietly from a preselected point of your choosing. All creatures in the area of the sphere are dealt 5d6 points of cold damage. A successful PC Reflex save results in half damage.

Material Component: a shard of ice, recently frozen

I also have about five death and negative energy spells in the works. Would anyone be interested in seeing them when they are finished?. If so, I'll try and post them before the next update next Wednesday.

Sage, that material componant -- does it fall under the same "if there's no gp value, assume it's in your pouch" rule, as stated in the PHB? Otherwise, a wizard or sorcerer would have to cast ray of frost or another cold or cold-subsituted (modifed by the feat Energy Substitution [cold]) spell. I'd have no idea where a cleric woudl get it.

Yes it does fall under that rule Bookwyrm. Unfortunately the campaign it was designed for was a very 'closed' campaign with regard to realism, if you catch my drift. The players didn't like to think too much about those types of things, so an easy explanation was usually the result. I dislike those type of campaigns, as you know, I like them to conform a little with reality to make them all the more interesting, but sometimes, gamers don't see things this way.

I understand. It was just the 'recently frozen' part that prompted my question.

Well as promised, the new items have arrived. Although I just want to make a point of informing customers that due to the very common and basic natures of these items, there really hasn't been any exciting background about them, since most have never been used before.

I have left all of that open for those beginner PC's and DM's who may wish to use the items posted here, but add their own fluff to the items.

That's it for today. I should have some new items by next Wednesday, although the way I am crafting at the moment, they will most likely be powerful epic-level items.

I like the second and third ones. For the third, I also liked how it's less of a limitation of magic than of control -- that is, the more experienced the character, the greater number of changes in a 24-hour period.

For the second one, you pretty much gave me the specs for a pair of daggers my brother created for his first story. The only real difference was that the daggers returned after one minute. (I have to say, those daggers were one of my favorite parts of that story. He never finished it, though.)

Um . . .

[Bookwyrm looks back at his forge, where he sees some cobwebs hanging off of some equipment -- a longsword in particular.]

Er, it's possible, I suppose . . .

I only asked, because it seems as though Candlekeep has been pretty quiet of late. Because of this, I was actually thinking of closing up shop for away, until 'business' picks up.
