Magic Item - Whipping Boy

New Magic Item for Swords & Wizardry
Whipping Boy
The Whipping Boy is a small figure made of clay that has a vaguely humanoid appearance. When a drop blood is placed on the Whipping Boy the Clay figure takes on the appearance of the blood’s owner bonding itself to the owner.
Legend has it that the Whipping Boy was first created by Zulan Cultists when the Ar’kree roamed the world. Used by the Cultist to protect themselves from the slave rebels who dared attempt to overthrow the Zulan Empire and seal the Ar’kree away.
While worn by the owner of the blood the Whipping boy has a 75% chance of taking the damage its owner would have received. Once that damage exceeds 30 points the Whipping Boy will crumble into dust and the former owner must succeed a Saving Throw are be inflicted with all the damage the Whipping boy took for him.
Thankful, Whipping Boys are exceedingly rare, but from time to time the can be found in the ancient temples of the Ar’kree or in some nobles private collection.

The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District.

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.

The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.

More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
