Yes, I was doing some research for a sci-fi campaign setting several years ago, looking for some information regarding extra-solar planetary systems, and the workings of the Drake equations, and this page was one of the sites I found. It helped me a great deal when it came time to fleshing out the setting.

::The Sage looks over at his other computer, just realising that he had left a half written reply to a post on the Classic Battletech Forum, when a new post from Bookwyrm appeared in Candlekeep::

He'll be flattered to hear that. He used to play an SF RPG years ago, but I can't remember the name right off hand.

Anyway, he's just that sort of person. Science in everything. (Except stupid "sci-fi" films like The Core. I never thought I'd hear of something with holes larger than Star Trek, but at least Star Trek's basic plot wasn't a scientist's bad joke.)

[Bookwyrm stops as he realizes that he's gone far off course, and figures it's about time to shut up before Alaundo catches them not tending to the customers' needs. ]

::The Sage looks cautiously over his shoulder, down the hall as he sits hunched over his table. Tomes and scrolls lay everywhere, the Sage quickly organises them all - especially the ones Alaundo had given to him to reference. He wants to appear busy, should Alaundo come calling::

Anyway, back to topic,

I was looking over MoF, with the section that details moonblades. I want to create a unique moonblade type magical item for the shop, but I really don't know where to start. Since Moonblades are unique magical items, the task would seem to appear impossible, but this is something I really want to try.

Anyone have any ideas?.

Well, a moonblade's only good for an elf or half-elf of a particular family. I don't see any way to make one for general purposes. Or were you just wanting a unique combination of moonblade powers? I did that once, making a history for it (or at least the reasons for the particular powers).

Actually either way would be interesting. I have a few draft items here already. I am working on them for possible posting here in the shop.

However, I would be curious to know a little more about this unique combination moonblade you mentioned. Is it possible?. It may help me with a few ideas I've got cooking here. As for histories for the blades, they're already flesh out, with details connecting to my Evermeet campaign - that's the easy part - the combination of powers is where it becomes interesting.

I made it for my Forgotten Realms fan fiction, though, if I ever get back to writing it, I might actually drop it. I also wrote the powers out before I ever knew how the gaming system worked, so I don't have the same explanation of how to use the powers in a campaign. It doesn't really matter, since it was for a story and not gameplay, but looking back over it I think I'll do it anyway. Just for kicks.

Anyway, here are the five runes and the powers the represent:




“Danger”

Power:

When the moonblade is on the holder’s person, a vague sense of possible dangers aimed at that person is felt. When it is held in the holder’s hand, the dangers become more clarified. (Basically, like a combination of detect evil, detect monster, and other spells.)


History:

The first possessor of this moonblade was a scholar, specializing in finding information on lost civilizations. (We would say an archeologist.) Working as he did in the field, where things can become somewhat dangerous, he usually traveled with a band of adventurers for protection. This was especially necessary due to the fact that this elf was often too absorbed to notice danger; however, after he had been accepted by the moonblade, this changed with the power that developed.



“Speed”

Power:

Equivalent to a haste spell when drawn.


History:

The second holder of this moonblade was a female warrior, who, lacking the strength of most, made up for it in speed. After being accepted by the moonblade, its power enhanced that ability even further.



“Dispel”

Power:

Can be used to block unfriendly magics; however, the wielder has to be prepared to do so.


History:

The third to be chosen by this moonblade was also a warrior, one who had made it his duty to fight against evil mages. When he found himself standing alone against one, the moonblade granted him the power to block that mage’s magics.



“Position”

Power:

The possessor of the moonblade can remember every place he or she has been to since the moonblade came to that person, and can navigate any such place without consulting a map. (Compare to mapping in a campaign.)

History:

The fourth person to hold this moonblade was a mage who was also absent-minded like the first holder. Often he got lost on the way to places familiar to him, much less to places foreign. However, after the moonblade accepted him, this changed.

(He remained absent-minded to the end of his days, however, which were ended prematurely and ultimately led to this blade’s discovery by the fifth and most recent holder, as shown below.)



“Knowing”

Power:

The bearer of this moonblade can tap into the skills, mostly martial in nature but also some others, of those who once possessed it as well.

(Note that this rune means “knowing,” but not “knowledge.” Knowledge is to have facts, while this manifests as more of a feeling; basically an idea of the best moves in a fight, etc.)


History:

The current possessor of this moonblade did not know what it was when he drew it. Attacked by a party of drow in the halls of Undermountain, he drew a sword being which had been carried by one (now dead) in an attempt to protect his companions. (These drow had recently killed the last holder of the moonblade, and knowing what it was, were taking it back to the Underdark as a trophy.) Unknowing of the danger, he simply saw it as the only weapon within reach, and drew it in time to parry a blow that would have killed him.

The moonblade, sensing his desire to defend his wounded companions, did not kill him, even though he was only distantly related to the moonblade’s family. He was also granted his power almost at once, for even though he was a good fighter with a quarterstaff, he only had a passing familiarity with blade work. As such, he was granted access to the collective fighting skills of the spirits still in the sword.

Thanks Bookwyrm.

Actually some of these blades may be of use.

I am already thinking up some great combinations for the 'Dispel' and 'Knowledge' blades. Maybe I can have the 'Knowledge' blade enhance the Knowledge [any] skill.

The 'Dispel' blade would automatically seem to suggest dispel magic, but maybe something a bit more creative can be done.

I'll tinker with these ideas and see what I can create.

Also if you ever finish the FR fanfic, I'd love to read it. I am finding alot of the fanfiction presented here, and at the WotC FR forums are of great quality - well thought out and well presented.

Anyway,

It's not 'Knowledge' -- it's 'Knowing.' I was having a hard time thinking of one-word descriptions at the time, okay? I was in class when I typed that one out.

And the 'Dispel' suffers from a similar problem. It's not an actual dispel. It's sort of an absorbtion effect. Think of it as the sword can absorb a certain number of spell-levels each round. (I'm thinking that it would bleed off at a rate of one or two levels per round.) However, it's a standard action, so the sword's owner has to know it's comming.

I understood what you meant, I was simply relating how I saw these blades in my FR gaming terms . Although your thoughts on the dispel-absorption effect does have some promising potential for game development.

I recently read a book by Mercedes Lackey, Winds of Fate, that had swords with special abilities.

One was Calm, which allowed the bearer to keep a cool head in any situation

Another was Luck, which simply attracted good luck to the bearer.

A third was Warding (self-explanatory, I think), like Bookwyrm's 'Dispel' but worked even if they were asleep.

And finally, Healing (also self-explanatory)

Along the lines of what Bookwyrm said with 'Knowing', one of the swords possessed all four abilities, and the forger cast her soul into the sword, in effect making it sentient. The current bearer was then able to access the fighting knowledge of all previous users as that knowledge was contained in the sword.

I don't know if this helps you or not, but it was interesting that I found your topic shortly after reading this book.

Anyone who likes to read something that's really dark and gritty and completely awesome ought to read The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks. You can check out a little taste at www.BrentWeeks.com I should probably warn you, though, that it is definitely not PG-13 :-D

He also started a new Trilogy with Black Prism, which may even surpass the Night Angel Trilogy in its awesomeness.

Dang -- I hate it when someone steals my ideas before I ever think of them!

I'll have to look into that, I think. It sounds interesting. A bit like Fred Saberhagen's 'Books of Swords' though that's only a guess. I haven't actually read those books, since I haven't been able to find the first one.

Does this book have any same-sex relationships, though? She seems pretty hot and heavy on the male-male ones sometimes. I stopped reading Knight of Ghosts and Shadows because it was just getting in the way of the plot -- and I have to admit that I don't like it when that happens. Pity. That was a good book at first.

There's only been one book (actually a trilogy) where I've ever been able to ignore that in favor of the plot. It's S. M. Stirling's 'Event' trilogy. (NOTE: that's my name for it. I hate it when they don't use series names!) It's a really superior story of time travel/alternate history. I won't go into that here, for fear of attracting a bit of 'bearded wrath' (), but I will say that it's not for everyone.

(To give you an idea, I created a little ratings system for books to help a friend's mom decide what was good or not. It's like the American ratings system for movies, except I added a 'PG-17' and two levels of 'R.' R2 was put in because of those three books. They're the only ones under that listing that I own. It's a good story, but it can be very dark.)

[Bookwyrm, hearing some familiar footsteps out in the hall, ducks and pretends to be polishing one of the swords on display. ]

There's some interesting ideas there Brynweir. Thankyou.

Anyway, my Moonblade designs are coming together nicely, utilising a few ideas that both you and Bookwyrm have mentioned. I have also incorporated a few ideas from the Darksword described in the Weis & Hickman Darksword Trilogy. The sword used in those books had some unique properties that...

::The Sage also hears the same footsteps echoing further down the hall away from Bookwyrm. The Sage then removes a small cloth from the folds of his robes and approaches the sword and shield display where he then begins to assist Bookwyrm in polishing and dusting the collected swords and shields on display within the library::

And finally, I am still looking for contributions to the shop. I am willing to provide an entire shelf for the displaying of your item, and I charge no up-front costs.

Not to continue off topic, but yes Bookwyrm, she seems to really like same-sex relationships, though they are not as prevalent in this book. You may want to check out the Last Herald-Mage trilogy, as well. Some same-sex, but not detailed, and I didn't find it interfering with the story.

Also, I read a series called the Rune Lords by David Farland, in which they use certain runes to transfer abilities to other people, usually nobles, and the transfer lasts until one of them dies. They transfer things that would effect abilities, like brawn (strength), intelligence, stamina, beauty and voice (charisma), etc. Someone might be interested in magical artifacts that could perform similar functions (if they don't already exist).

To get back on topic, Sage of Perth, I am looking to "purchase" an artifact that would let a non-magic user wield magic? Is there anything like this available? If not that would be something I would be interested in seeing created. (I'm not very familiar with magic, since I rarely play a magic user)

*Sorry, Aluando, I really tried. I actually made it eight whole days without jumping off-topic.*

Well, 'rods' can be wielded by anyone, if you want straight spells. What sort of magic are you looking for? I'm always ready for inspiration.

Brynweir, I actually have one or two magic items for non-magic users in the next batch of items to be posted at the end of the week. I am still putting the final touches to them, so nothing is definite yet. But now that you have made the request I'll try extra hard in creating something special for you.

As Bookwyrm said, magic rods can be wielded by pretty much any character class, so if this is something you are looking for, I'll try and make it good. If you have anything specific in mind however, then consider my creative energies now at your personal disposal.

Thanks,

Well, it seems as though Tymora's blessing has indeed visited the Magic Shop today for I am proud to announce another fine magical item from the Bookwyrm.



Lightning Dagger
As you continue to walk through the aisles of the Magic Shop -- a shop you swear seems to be growing by the day -- you come upon an assortment of daggers. These appear to be non-unique items, and perhaps within your budget? It certainly couldn’t help to look.

You pick up one that seems to have an unusual shape to the sheath; drawing it, you see why. The handle is unassuming and unremarkable, but the blade was formed in the shape of a stylized lightning bolt. You’ve never seen such a blade; it must have been hard to forge like that. However, it is well-balanced, and its points look wickedly sharp. It is a thing of simple elegance and lethal beauty.

While you are distracted by this blade, the Sage himself steps up to you. You are embarrassed at how easily this happened, but then the Sage has a very quiet step.

“Ah. The lightning dagger,” he says, peering at the weapon you hold. “Yes, a new addition to my shop. A shipment of them just arrived by ethereal-mail from my colleague, the Bookwyrm. This one is merely the floor model. It has some interesting electrical powers. A very good buy, I assure you . . . .”.

Caster Level: 3rd
Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, shocking grasp, endure elements.
Weight: 2 lbs.
Special:
The powers of the Lightning Dagger are as follows -

  • The wielder casts shocking grasp on the blade as a third-level sorcerer once per round, for a total of ten times in a 24-hour period. This is chosen before a hit; the charge stays in place for one minute, or it is expended on a target (activated by a successful hit), or it is dismissed by the holder. If dismissed, it counts as having been used. If not dismissed or expended after one minute, the wielder of the dagger suffers the effect of the shocking grasp spell as if he had been attacked with it
  • The wielder can, once per day, cast endure elements (electricity) on himself
  • This item can be used by a specialist wizard, even if the powers of this dagger fall under one or more prohibited schools

Believe it or not, I forgot about the rods.

I wasn't really looking for anything specific (although a good ring of invisibility would be great). I was thinking about running an assassin, heavy on the fighting and stealth abilities, and I really didn't want to multi-class as a wizard or anything. Although since I have only used a wizard once, I might need to consider it just to learn more about the class.

And as for Bookwyrm's Lightning Dagger, it sounds cool. I actually have had a dagger with a blade shaped like a lightning bolt. I say had because my brother took it (even though he swears he didn't, I know he has it). I bought it at a store called Whatchamacallit. Really!

Greater Ring of Regeneration
Usually crafted of the purest gold with a ruby stone in the center these rings are rare in the extreme. They simply heal the wearer of any damage done to him or her at a very rapid rate. The wearer of one of these rings regenerates at 1hp/round, Wearer does not age, even magical aging is reversed to the wearers prime. The wearer has a healthy glow +2 to appearance-based reactions due to the fact that skin cells are always healthy and do not die. Wearer cannot die of starvation, asphyxiation or dehydration but is in constant burning agony (-10 to all checks) as his body regenerates dead cells that are starved for nourishment. Cannot be removed except by Dispel Magic, Wish or Limited Wish)

Caster Level: 18th
Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, Regeneration, Permanency, Wish
Market Price: 250,000 gp or more depending on availability
Weight: Neg

Is the wearer in agony all the time, or only when (s)he doesn't eat enough to power the regeneration?

Great work Artalis, I really like this.

I like the twist at the end as well, simply cunning.

Anyway, I've got some great stuff coming for Friday so keep this scroll handy.

Greetings, I am proud to announce another fine addition to the Magic Shop, courtesy of the Bookwyrm.

Here it is -

Piercer
This short sword is simple and unadorned, save for an inscription on the blade in Draconic: That Which Pierces the Metal Shell. Who forged it is unknown, but it has been dubbed “the Piercer.”

Caster Level: 9th
Prerequisites: Craft Magical Arms and Armor, lesser ironguard
Weight: 3 lbs.
Market Cost: 17,245 gp
Special:
This sword acts in all ways as if it were the permanent subject of a lesser ironguard spell, thus treating any nonmagical metal as if it were not there. If, however, you were to attack an opponent wearing metal armor with a +1 enhancement bonus, the sword is slowed, resulting in half-damage only. If the enhancement is +2 or higher, the lesser ironguard spell is of no use against that target. This sword confers no bonuses or effects on the wielder.
