If I wished to submit an item to the shop, would you prefer it sent to you first, and if so, at what address? I am seriously considering subimitting the ridiculously overpowered crown from 'review' by the scribes of Candlekeep.

This place is great for exchanging creative ideas on spells, weapons and other equipment. Most of the items displayed here are quite well balanced. In my case, when I create my own magical items, I would like to write a short piece of history to it. That is why I admire the writers of Baldur's Gate. Even a lowly +1 longsword had such a long history in the description. Of course this is easier said than done.

Anyway, I had thought of the concept of this sword for quite sometime. The special abilities and the history though, was something I came up fifteen minutes ago

I know this is pretty basic, but sometimes a good shortsword is hard to find, especially one that does not need continuous sharpening.



If I may, alter something of this sword based on your description.
I was thinking like, since it is keen, and doesn't need sharpening,
you should make it into a keen weapon with crit 17-20. Also, not sure if dark elves use mithril.

I agree Leona, I like long backgrounds for all types of magical items, but sometimes I've got so much going on, that I can't create anything for some of the items I post. I'll try a little harder. To tell you the truth I didn't think anybody appreciated the backgrounds I created for some of the items here at the Shop.

Thanks.

I would prefer it if you sent the items via Interplanar Email (thanks again Bookwyrm) to my email address. Just look in my profile, for my email address, if everything checks out (which I believe coming from you it probably will) I will then post it here with full credit going to you for the item.

Thanks for asking Edain, I appreciate it.

If you feel you want to change some details (if you intend to use this item in your home campaign) please go right ahead. As for the items in the shop, I do intend (at some later date) to change a few details with some of the stats, but for now I'll take your suggestions under advisement.

And since you mentioned whether dark elves use mithral, I'll just say that it was my home FR campaign, and I have changed several rules for my own enjoyment. In fact I use alot of my own crafted material for my FR campaign about as much as I use official information.

(Just as an example, the Time of Troubles in my home FR campaign, ran a little longer than the official ToT and the effects were much greater).

Thanks .

That's fine Leona, if it is easier for you. Just be sure that the items are fairly balanced (if you need help some at the shop can assist you), and that most of the details are filled in.

Oh, and make sure you detail it was your creation, for credit purposes.

Another of my creation

Bracers of the Moonmaiden

This pair of beautifully crafted bracers are made of a material that looks like silver but it isn't. It is said that the bracers were forged from the first Tear of Selune to fall on Toril. They have seen many faithful of the Moonmaiden through difficult times. At the wearer's will, a pair of shimmering beams of force will spring out of the bracers.

Effect: As the 3rd level Moon Domain spell moonblade except that wearer calls forth 2 blades instead of 1. The wearer can call forth the blades as frequently as she wants so long as the total time that the blades spent in existence does not exceed 10 turns per day. Usage recharges every night at midnight. Does not function if only one bracer is worn.

Very impressive Leona.

However, do you have the MARKET PRICE for this item. All items in the shop will need to have a price so customers can see what this particular item costs. Also, are there any PREREQUISITES for this item. We will also need to know the appropriate CASTER LEVEL as well.

Thanks, and keep them coming.

I love all the new items! Those bracers sound rather cool. Maybe if my mind will start working, I may add some items. I'll get back to you Sage if it starts working.

May Melkor smile upon every spell you cast.

Of course it does! And, might I say, 'obviously.' I sent you some ether-mail, remember?

If you've allowed your email to be public (and in most cases it is), it's under 'My contact info'; the link there opens a new window (strangely), and then all you have to do is click on the link. (Alternatively, you can click on the 'E-Mail Poster' icon in every person's post. Same thing happens.) It opens Outlook with the address already loaded. You can copy that and paste it into a web-based email, if that's what you use.

Same with Artalis. I have no idea how to assign prices to my items as they are usually unique (aka one of its kind) and not reproducible.

Anyway, caster level for the bracers is 8.

Great so far, Targon, but does it have any DAMAGE abilities, or special abilities that we may wish to know about?.

I am pretty sure there is a chart of listing for the pricing of magical items, but I can't remember where, and I can't look it up as I am at work at the moment, I'll check tonight when I get home. Anyway if you are both having problems just post your items here in the shop anyway, since there are several worthy sages, myself, Bookwyrm, and Edain who would probably be able to assist you in assigning prices for your items.

Yes thankyou Bookwyrm . Sometimes, due to my sagely concerns I frequently find myself adrift in a sea of absent-mindedism(???), and so therefore fail to see things that are sometimes directly underneath my nose .

Whew!!!, that's it for now.

Greetings,

Some new items have arrived, fresh from a Calimport market.

So let's get into them -

Sliver Bolts

These specially crafted crossbow bolts are designed for maximum damage and maxmium accuracy. They are partially enchanted and have a series (4) of sharp metal slivers embedded in the shaft running down the length of the bolt-shaft.

When fired from a standard crossbow, the slivers pop up from the shaft and point outwards in four directions. These additional slivers form extra rows of sharp bladed edges that can tear into a target.

Damage: -
Range: -
Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armour
Caster Level: 8th
Market Price: 502 gp (each)
Weight: -
Special: These sliver bolts act as +2 bolts of wounding

Onto the second item -

The Holy Justifier of Tyr
It is said the this mace was crafted by a cleric of Tyr five years ago, before a great battle to free the hamlet of Wood's Edge near Cloak Wood. The village was said to be under the thrall of an evil necromancer of Velsharoon, and a horde of orcs and undead. The necromancer had wished to experiment on the villages to create a special type of spectral undead.

However, when a passing group of Tyrian clerics arrived to visit the local shrine to Tyr, they were horrified to discover it's current state. The exact history surrounding the creation of the mace is not known outside of the most holiest of Tyrian clerical circles. What is known, is that the cleric, Valroth Kar of Tyr, spent some time alone at his temple to Tyr where he supposedly asked his god for assistance.

This may be a fanciful speculation, as nobody truly knows how Valroth acquired the great mace. The next day, the clerics, lead by Valroth Kar, the mace firmly in his grasp, lead the resistance to free the hamlet of it's undead curse. After several hours of running battles the horde was broken, the battle was won - the undead and orcs were either destroyed of incapacitated. The battle was not without it's casualities however, after the battle it was revealed that Valroth had been killed - slain in final combat with the necromancer each landing a final fatal blow on each other at the last moment.

The mace was quickly recovered by the remaining clerics who then returned to their temple where the mace was blessed and was said to be returned to Kar's temple to commerate his great deed. How it ended up at the Sage of Perth's Magic Shop is currently unknown.

Damage: 1d8+3
Melee/Ranged: Melee
Size: Medium
Market Price: 30,245 gp
Prerequisites: None as this is a unique item to the Church of Tyr
Weight: 13 lbs.
Caster Level: 13th
Special: The Holy Justifier of Tyr is an intelligent heavy mace +3 of Lawful Good alignment, with a Wisdom attribute of 18, an Intelligence attribute of 15, and a Charisma attribute of 14. It can cast heal on the wielder and one other cleric of Tyr once per day. It as functions as though it had both the Keen and Bane special abilities.

The last item for today people -

The Guardian of Pure Hearts
This chainmail suit was especially crafted by a faction of wizards whose library of knowledge and magical items deep within the Cloud Peaks was preserved from destruction by a local monastery of lawful monks. It is said that the library came under attack by a rampaging horde of Hill Giants intent on razing the library under directives from a Zhentarim agent in the area who had learnt of the library. The Zhentarim obviously had intentions on pillaging the library once the wizards were dead, or had been driven from their library hold. After the wizards discovered that an attack was coming, they put out a call to any adventures or mercenaries in the area who would be willing to help defend the library.

The monastery "The Order of the Righteous Fists" responded to the call to arms, arriving several hours before the attack began. It is said that both the wizards and the monks repulsed an attack by a combined force of hill giants, trolls and other lesser creatures, completely driving them from the mountain range and down into the area surrounding Lake Neng, where it is said that the wounded giants and trolls either drowned or fled.

The chainmail was given to the head of the Order in a show of appreciation for what the monks had done. The chainmail can only be worn by those with the purest of hearts

Armor Bonus: +4
Max Dex: +3
Check Penalty: -2
Arcane Spell Failure: 10%
Weight: 10 lbs
Prerequisites: Craft Magic Armour, Haste, Expeditious Retreat
Market Price: 23,000 gp
Caster Level: 14th
Special:
Once per day the head monk of any lawful good order wearing this armour can cast - Haste, Expeditious Retreat

The mail counts as light armour, and the chosen monk who intends to wear it must have the Light Armour Proficency to make use of it.

Also the wielder can use any of these skills without penalties - Climb, Balance, Escape Artist, Move Silently, and Tumble.





Let me know what you think for all these new items.

Just a quick message,

There may be some delays for the next few days in responses and updates, as I need to settle down and concentrate on the NWN Drizzt Modules I am helping to create. I'll try an post some new stuff sometime next week.

Thanks.

Bookwyrm, those items will be posted either tonight or early tomorrow. I am a little busy at present, so I have had to put the detailed evaluation of the Flail on hold for today.

I will get to them both tonight.

Okay, I have some spare time, so I'll post Bookwyrm's recent additions to the Shop.

Here's the first -

Eyetooth
Amidst the maze of items that crowd the Sage’s Shop, you turn a corner in the seemingly random aisles and find yourself facing a highly unusual longsword. And the sword, it seems, is watching you as well.

A single, lidless eye is set in the crosspiece, slitted like a cat’s, and it is fixed on you. It follows you as you move around it, and you see there are two more eyes, identical to the first, on the pommel and the reverse side of the crosspiece.

This is the semi-sentient sword Eyetooth (longsword +4). It is a blade many find unnerving, but one that is loyal to its holder. It is only when wielded that Eyetooth finds a measure of freedom, of purpose. It is not bloodthirsty, but it does, in essence, love its job.

Damage: 1d8+4 (Special - See Below)
Melee/Ranged: Melee
Size: Medium
Market Price: 45,123 gp
Weight: 10 lbs.
Special:
To use this weapon, one must first bond with it. This merely entails accepting the sword as one’s own primary weapon. It never tricks the wielder, nor does a bonding occur simply by drawing the sword. However, its abilities are not usable until a bonding occurs (it is merely a +2 sword until then).

The bonding has its own penalties. The character temporarily loses 1d4+1 points each of constitution, dexterity, and strength (roll separately), gaining them back at a rate of one every two days. (The player can choose which ability score will be restored each time.) The character is reduced to one-tenth his normal hit-point level, gaining them back normally (minus missing constitution bonuses). The character must also never be far from it or take 3 hp of damage each day (1 per 8 hours).

In return, the sword grants the following powers on the wielder:

* Proficiency with longsword, if not already possessed by the character.

* +2 circumstance bonus on Look and Spot checks. (Not available if the eyes are covered.)

* The character has a +2 bonus to see through illusions. (Not available if the eyes are covered.)

* -2 penalty on Diplomacy checks if the eyes are uncovered: the sword instills an eerie feeling in viewers unused to the sight.

* +2 bonus on Intimidate checks if the eyes are uncovered.

* The character can cast darkvision on himself once per day as a sorcerer of his character level.

* The character can use a true strike ability once per day, as the spell, but only with Eyetooth as the striking weapon.

* The character cannot be flanked. (Available only when the sword is in hand.)
