Well, I have studied the relevant sections of the 2e Volo's Guide to All Things Magical, 3e Magic of Faerun, and some other gaming materials (both WotC and third-party), yet no tome makes mention of the fact that this method is possible. However, these tomes also do not discount the possibility either. It might be an interesting idea to tinker with a little.

An Exceptionally tall Man of indeterminate age slinks into the shop, slowly perusing the magical wares. Every now and again he pauses in step to more thourougly examine a given piece. A tome of candle keep, a dagger with a handle in the shape of a cobra, quick glances at various scrolls...
Eventually he comes before the propietor and speaks softly...


Greetings again Sage, I just recently noted this rather miraculous shop of yours and was hoping that perchance you could help me with some small difficulties of mine. You see, for a rather long time I've been meaning to part with some minor trinkets i've collected and repaired over the years. For me it's never really been fun owning the item, just in reconstructing them.
So i was hoping i might be able to display some of them here in your fine establishment , i'd finally have them out of my cluttered storage locations and you'd have some rather interesting conversation pieces. What say you?

"Oh, Do stop whining, It's not the End of the World. It's just the end of Your's."

::The Sage's head slowly lifts from the tome Lectures on Kant and the Critique of Pure Reason - that he had been busily reading - to greet the new patron to his shop.

"Yes, please do come in", he says in a gruff tone, as though he were a little disappointed at being disturbed from his reading.
::

Anyway, yes Malanthius. I would be honoured to accomodate anything of a magical nature that you wish to display here in my humble little shop. If indeed these pieces do provide a source for interesting conversation then I am sure either the Bookwyrm or myself would be more than happy to accomodate you on this as well.

Please post them here when you are sure they are ready.

Thank you.

Reaching deep into his robes, the tall newcomer slowly draws out a long slender object wrapped in worn cloth. Holding it before him as he unravels it, he begins to explain...

"I recovered, hmm, i guess you would call it the basis for this item in shadowdale.
Originally I had thought the Old Sage of that place had truly become senile to allow such a large disruption of the weave to take place in a farmers shack, but further investigation -much to my chagrin- led me to find the cause of it was, unfortunately something far worse."As the cloth tumbles to the floor an incessant murmering can be heard that rises in both pitch and volume, finally forming into a loud and obnoxious voice that constantly repeats
" Is we THERE YET?!!!"



For Centuries the lands of the Sword Coast have produced adventurers with cunning, boundless common sense, and a fierceness of heart difficult to find anywhere else in Faerun.
Keller Of Beregoast was not one of these.
To His Credit, Keller was without equal in terms of shear ferocity of fighting, a veritable engine of destruction upon the battlefield. Unfortunately, his slow wittedness made him almost as much a threat to his allies as to his enemies. Complicating all of this was the simple fact that Keller couldn't understand that there were things his sword simply wasn't able to hurt.
A notable argument with his then ally, the Sorceress Jelila of Evereska, occurred over the matter of how to properly dispose of a troll. Keller's refusal to allow her to cast aganazar's scorcher on the puried remains allowed the creature to regenerate and eat several of the companions before Jelila finally destroyed it with a well placed fireball. This led to Kellers seperation from Jelila's trackers along with his being ostracized by all other chartered groups and/or bands of brigands in the region.
Dispondant over this turn of events and greaving over recent news of his half brother Lilacor's dissapearance, Keller decided he needed to do something drastic. Get an enchanted blade.
The problem Keller then ran into was that no witch,wizard,priest or sorcerer seemed either willing or able to provide the kind of magick sword he wanted.
It seemd like a simple enough request to him: "I wants a sword whut can hurt anything. Even kill it if'n yas hit it enough times." he'd tell them, and sooner or later, some way or another they all would tell him the same thing, yes you could make a blade that could pierce this kind of monster, or slice that one, on a certain day under the right circumstances, but a weapon that could literally hurt anything? Impossible! Sheer Madness!
So, frustrated beyond belief with these "id'ut spell slingers" Keller had the wonderful idea that he'd simply make a magick blade himself.
Thus began a rather long crime wave that hit the wizards along the sword coast as a crazed fighter dashed into their sanctums, grabbed everything he could carry that looked remotely magickal, and bashed anyone that tried to stop him.
This insane quest culminated in Keller gathering all these "ingredients" together in one massive pot over a fire in a farmers shack in shadowdale. The resultant explosion destroyed the shack, most of the farm land surrounding it and (Unfortunately) only "most" of Keller.
Wether it was tymorra's toss, or Mystra's humor, to some degree Keller actually succeded in making the blade he disired so much.

Keller's Folly or The Un-Silent Blade

Description and Powers
At first glance one would dismiss this half melted object as a piece of scrap metal. Further inspection reveals it to be in a shape vaguely resembling a longsword that's blade is twisted and seemingly poorly balanced. Careful scrutiny shows that there is a form of handle carved from burnt bone.
Damage:1d8(Special-See Below)
Melee/Ranged: Melee
Size: Medium
Market Price: Priceless (literally-See Below)
Weight: 10lbs
Special:
Treat Keller's Folly as as +5 to Hit in all attack rolls, (No damage bonus, just to Hit, No Matter the creature the blade will only do 1d8 damage per hit plus wielder's strength bonus) Unique ability: Do to the generally messed up accident that created this bizarre weapon Keller's Folly can do damage to any form of creature,living or dead, ethereal or solid,inanimate or animate.Reguardless of said creatures regenerative abilities this does not count as subdual damage.
Semi-Sentient(Curse): Although there is some remainder of Keller about the weapon, "intelligence" would be a stretch. The Sword talks. And Talks. It never actually stops talking. It's annoying. Very Annoying. If the sword talks continously in the presence of the current wielder for 2d10 days, wielder must make a will save (21) or go insane as per the insanity spell.

"Oh, Do stop whining, It's not the End of the World. It's just the end of Your's."

I like this. A great background tale, and a magical item of amazing ability. This was exactly one of the types of contribution I was hoping for. Someone's idea of an 'ultimate' weapon. Everything seems well balanced, although I think that the DC 15 could be a little higher, maybe 18 or even 20-25. You want this weapon's curse to be able to affect even those who are strong of will. I especially like the fact the the weapon's bonus affects the to-hit roll rather than the damage roll. An interesting alternative.

I guess the only thing left to ask is...do you have any more items to display here in the Magic Shop?.

Armour Arcana

Caster Level: 15th
Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armour, Expeditious Retreat, Catís Grace, Haste, Protection from Spells
Market Price: 64000 GP
Cost to Create: 32,000 g.p. + 2560XP
Special:
This armour is prized by arcane spellcasters, who are proficient in the use of Heavy Armour. Currently only one suit of this armour is known to exist. Sir Richard Trueblade, a Royal Knight of Cormyr and Alusairís court is the current owner, and it was made specially for him by Vangerdahast for services that he and his brother-at-arms Duke Sir Lowie Silversword performed for the Crown. Sir Richard Trueblade (NG Ftr 8/Sor 12) is neither a War Wizard or a Purple Dragon Knight like his friend Lowie, but Sir Richard is a distinguished and respected ROYAL knight of the Court.

This Half Plate armour is decorative and appears to be worked by the finest of Cormyrean smiths. There is a gentle glow to the mail; powerful magic radiates from the armour, as if the mail was enchanted with the dawn. The extreme cost of this magical armour prevents it from being distributed amongst the War Wizards of Cormyr.

The armour grants an enhancement bonus of +3 to the wearer, and a spell ressistance of 15. The most prized benefit of this armour, is that there is no penalty for casting arcane spells while wearing this armour. (Arcane Spell Failure 0%, SR: 15, AC:10 (7armour +3 Enhancement).

With an almighty flash....well not almightly....more like a pitiful plop MuadDib, pops into existence in the small shop startling some creatures, one of whom is his small pseudo-dragon which immediately latches onto his face and starts frantically frothing at the mouth in anger and wetting MuadDib's robe in its fear. After a slight scuffle, a couple of bites (not all of which were the dragon's) a coughed mini-fireball and a sedative, MuadDib manages to exact some control over his familiar. "Teleport without error my left...." Looking more than a little embarressed and with a few patches of hair missing, MuadDib approaches the learned Sage behind the counter, hoping he wont be disintegrated on site for his familiar's anticts. "I hear tell of thy magnificent shop and was wondering..."MuadDib notices the Sage's sceptical looks at his now partially bald head and the tattoo under it. MuadDib stammers "ummm....I assure ye M'Lord, tis not the markings of a Red Wizard, simply an unfortunate incident involving the timing of my permanency spell and a particularly disgruntled octopus" MuadDib presently launches into a very indepth discussion regarding the dangers of trying to meld a live octopus with a wand, speaking as if to himself, before the Sage's impatient look cuts him short. "Well....I digress, I have come to ye, to find out perhaps if ye would like to sell this magical item in thy shop. I assure ye it is quite powerful" MuadDib removes a small plain looking Onyx ring which is adorned with only one Opal, although looking into the ring reveals only deepest shadow.

"The story of this ring's origins are detailed in a collection of scrolls known as "Realms of Infamy". This ring allegedly belonged to one of the ruling council of the Zhentarim..." MuadDib proceeds to launch into a mumbled fit of swearing often calling Manshoon's parentage into question before he composes himself and continues" which had the power to call forth a Dragon. Directly superceding the disolving of the council, its chambers and the Dragon at the hands of a number of beholders (one of whom was secretly Elminster)", MuadDib whispers to the Sage, "this ring and its spiritual dragon were transported to a place now believed to be the Shadow realm. It is believed by more leanred scholars than myself that the remnants of the Netherese tampered with it, and that despite their most concentrated efforts to pervert its power to evil, Elmi...well 'someone's' mark on it was too powerful and they abandoned the ring and the untamable dragon back to the normal plane, inadvertantly saving the dragon from final destruction. I happened upon this ring in my, what i loosely call 'youth' and only recently have i discovered it's true potential. At considerable cost too i might add!

So do we have a deal M'Lord? Agree and i will share with you its power!"

::The Sage stares suspiciously at the onyx ring for a few more moments before again returning his gaze to the strange traveller who calls himself MuadDib.

"We do indeed have a deal, my curious friend. I seem to recall the details surrounding this particular ring from a series of studies I conducted on the Realms of Infamy scroll you previously mentioned", the Sage wanders off behind the shelving system directly behind the Magic Shop's front counter. MuadDib waits quietly, glancing occassionally at the myriad collection of customers who regularly frequent the store. The Sage quickly returns in a flurry of motion from behind the shelving unit carrying a specially crafted bag of holding.

"Place your ring in this bag, and I will see to finding a suitable area for display". The Sage smiles, proud of his latest acquisition.

Mournblade, I see that at last, your armor is completed. I can now see that the wait was definitely worth it. This is a fine magical item indeed. I know several of my players are going to be extra happy when they visit the Magic Shop this Saturday to 'suit up' for their latest adventures in my campaign.

Malanthius steps out of the shadows once more (somehow leaving those around to wonder wether or not he actually left the shop)tilting his head in seeming deep thought.
"I'm glad you liked the blade, Kind Sage. Most of the other individuals i tried to extend it to ran away screaming for some reason." he pauses thoughtfully " The other trinkets i believe are a little bit farther away at the moment. On the other hand i do have a couple of scrolls here in my library quarters that might be entertaining for your customers. They did after all make their creator a laughing stock." As he speaks his eyes momentarily unfocus as if he is recalling events of long ago.
"It was a fascinating incident, he was tossed out of a rather respectable mage school for being as he put it : too 'environmentally friendly'. Would you be interested?"

WooHoo! I'm a novice!
One other question, what's the level of the party in question for the campaign and were you looking for some specific items for them?

Mal.

Since most of these PC's are all 20+ levels it is a safe assumption to say that they all have considerable magical items at their disposal. Dunthar and Korloth are really the only ones looking for particular items to replace those that were lost when they were captured several days (3 sessions) ago. Korloth is missing his masterwork Greatsword (with various other titles, which I won't go into here), as well as his prized Silver Shield. Although there is a reason for that loss.

Dunthar is still recovering from the grevious injuries he sustained at the hands of his Drow captors, and has lost everything. He won't be adventuring Saturday. So basically I am looking for some armor suits, a few weapons that would make a dwarven barbarian happy, and a special epic-level greatsword.

And finally Ghelis needs to replace his aging magical staff-sling.

If you need any more details just let me know.

The Abilities of the aforementioned: Onyx Dragon Ring

Equipped Abilities: Permanent blur, Immunity to Level Drain

special Abilities: Summon Shadow Dragon once every three days, duration: 24 hours or until dragon is destroyed. Player and dragon are linked by telepathic link and as such, Dragon can still be controlled if summoner is imobile, silenced, otherwise engaged although not if feebleminded. Dragon is ultimately loyal to wielder of ring and as such is immune to charm effects.
Shadow dragon abilities: 190 HP -5 AC 4 THAC0 3 Attacks
Dragon has no magic, but all natural resistences apply

Interesting. Also I notice these are 2e stats.

Since that is the case, I will craft a conversion to 3e stats. However I will need to know the type of damage and the amount of damage that each of the 3 attacks deals.

It might also be interesting to tinker with the possibility of making this Dragon derived from the Plane of Shadow in 3e terms.

Hmm. Perhaps I should take a look at the ELH. What exactly are you looking for? And how magical was the staff sling? (I have some ideas on that last one . . . . )

The Staff-Sling had a true strike ability as well as a modified rapid true shot feat enchantment (don't worry about that last one, it is something of my own creation). It also was classed as a +1 staff of striking. I am not sure though whether you will have the appropriate material to look that particular staff description up.

Basically anything that would equip an epic-level fighter and barbarian PC (remembering the types of equipment they had lost) should be enough. I would rather leave the creative enchantments and such to the people who wish to create something for this.

Okay. I'll try to make at least a new staff-sling in the morning. I was hoping that it would work as a sort of quarterstaff as well (as I assume the staff of striking to be similar to the 2e staff of smiting?).

I have a few ideas on special abilities for other things as well. I'll try to work them out.

The 2e staff of smiting is a possibility.

Also if you want to work the staff-sling as a quarterstaff, I would be interested in seeing what you come up with.

BTW, there is no hurry on this. I may have to cancel my Saturday game anyway since I will probably have to work.

3 Attacks - each attack deals 3D6 base piercing damage, + a 15% chance per hit of doing 2D6 crushing damage.

Shadow Dragon can be hasted, but only for half duration of spell.

Thanks for that MuadDib. I'll start working on a 3e conversion, although I might wait for actual confirmation on the changes to the haste spell before continuing.
