Magic Items - Two magic items for any setting

It has been awhile since I've made a magic item so this is a nice change in a while.  The following I cannot take complete credit for as my daughter is actually where the idea came from during last night's Hero Kids game.

On a side-note, playing a tabletop game at a Books-a-Million at 2100 at night with an 8-year-old and my wife gets lots of stares. Especially since I'm a rather animated and vocal referee.

Shield of the Wall
A tower shield which appears as a normal tower shield from the front but from the rear is utterly see through, allowing any behind it to easily see their enemies. The shield's magical construction also allows any projectile spell to be cast through the shield, allowing the magic-user to remain hidden while still casting her spells.

And one the I made for an old D&D game I played in the Army.

Staff of the Rings

A staff of ash with an odd gem at its crest. The staff has slots etched out of its wood to securely hold up to four magic rings. The staff's magical construction allows the effects of any magical rings to be used while the staff is being held by a magic-user. Staff can cast light on command.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!


Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
