Item name: Spirit Guide's Cudgel
Item type: Club
Description: Spirit guides use cudgels like these as a means of improvised weapon when they have no choice but to fight in the defence of the village under their protection. While there is a subtle enchantment that can help guard the mind against fell influences, it is physically little more than a wooden stick and could not possibly be used for parrying blows like a metal weapon might. In the hands of a loa's servant, however, the true power of this humble looking object manifests, granting them more control over minor blessings.

Colour: Top 1, Middle 1, Bottom 1

Item name: Spirit Guide's Walking Stick
Item type: Quarterstaff
Description: Walking sticks are popular in places like Souragne where the travel conditions are rarely any good. It can help one remain surefooted when challenged by difficult terrain and also sees use in the year-round ritual dances thought to appease the Lord of the Dead. Despite looking like an ordinary tree branch, it also helps to channel the power of the loa, if only one knows how in the first place. For all its applications, if used to block a strike, it might just split in half, and like anything made of wood, would be a liability when rushing through a burning building.

Item name: Bone Sceptre of the Other Side
Item type: Mace
Description: This horrific effigy appears to be nothing more than a bent spine strapped to an oak handle. Given its precarious construction, it would surely break into pieces if it were to clash with anything forged to maim flesh and bone, and should the gods take notice of the wielder, they may interpret the very existence of this foul-looking thing to be an act of desecration and smite them at the worst of times. With the sceptre in hand for more than just a few moments, one feels a supernatural brittleness crawling through their bones that can only be cured by letting go of it, and if they do not, they will avail themselves to not just hostile influence, but outright possession. This may be the goal of the Voodan who chooses to wield it, most likely in the name of the Lord of the Dead; the haunting rattle when it is shaken may prove useful in performances meant to appease him. Besides this, it has some other uses: it is enchanted to make the cowardly steadfast and the brave fearless, and the one who risks wielding it will find that its macabre nature lends it some utility in ritual magic.

Item name: Spirit Walker's Censer
Item type: Torch/Flags/HolySymbols
Description: When incense is burning in the iron bowl of this censer, the user becomes more attuned with the magic all around them, withdrawing from the physical world and reacting more slowly to stimuli, especially in dangerous situations. They will be more susceptible to assaults by magical spells, but this can be overcome with sufficient training in the ways of the occult, and this censer can be a helpful instrument in that pursuit. If the one who wields it serves a loa well, they may channel divine powers through its use, as some of the loa of Souragne take their offerings burned, chiefly Sehkelo, the Queen in Gold, and Tonthomba, the Burning Man.

Item Name: Helm at the End of the Road
Item type: Helmet
Description: This plain soldier's helmet is worn by time and use, with many dents in it rendering it less than useful for head protection. Its most shocking quality however is the sizeable hole, located on the left side of where one's forehead would be. Upon closer inspection, the hole is clearly made by a projectile, which are known to fly about in random directions at battlefields of any size. Clearly someone did not have luck on their side.

The pecularities do not stop there, however. The hole bleeds droplets of a thick, dark blood-like substance, whenever its wearer is in fear of mortal danger. The wearer feels a sense of dread and self-preservation, as if the helm itself wishes to avoid falling to the same fate twice.

Those who twist fate and misfortune for their own ends recognize this ruined helmet for a powerful focus of bad luck.

Item Request Thread: Improved Herbalist Bag
« Reply #102 on: March 20, 2021, 09:47:26 PM »
So this post is out of format but bear with me.

Over in this thread we were discussing the current herbalist bags and reducing their weight to 0.1 lbs.

While we've come to an impasse, I think maybe there is a realistic compromise.

Here is zDark Shadowz's suggestion.

If it used the same base item (which is a lot easier to do) and added a 20% of weight reduction it changes the bag from a 5gp value to a 255gp value.

If people are fine with paying 255gp for a lighter herbalist bag maybe just make an item request thread to have this added in.

Here's the statistics and cost picture for you. Be the change you want to see, go post this exact pic for the item request in the appropriate thread. If people want to buy it so much make the request to add it to the vendors. If you dont do this then you really didnt want what you wanted. Maybe it's a Spidersilk Herbalist Bag which makes it lightweight and strong. Maybe it could be added as a tailoring option later on for MAB77. Who knows?


I particularly like this idea because it is a moderate gold sink, not too crazy, and offers convenience for those willing to pay its cost.

Like magic bags, characters can function without them just fine, but the implementation means a bit less tedium in inventory management.

Seeing this item appear in herbalist shops and some general stores would be really nice.

The idea of implementing this item, or something similar, as a tailoring option also seems sound.
