Orb of Darkness — March 23, 2019

Orb of Darkness

A smooth black orb that does not reflect any light whatsoever.


Wondrous Item, Uncommon

Any light within 25 feet of the orb is sucked into the orb and destroyed, thus rendering the area around the orb in complete darkness. No light will function within this range and all vision (including darkvision) is rendered useless.

Isolde — March 6, 2019

Isolde

“When I need someone to disappear, I always call Isolde. I don’t know how she does it, and quite frankly I don’t want to know. I just know that when I hire her the deed is as good as done.”

One of Isolde’s many employers

Isolde is an old female half-elf assassin with neatly-cropped gray hair. She wears well-fitted clothing that is colored with various shades of brown and black. She looks strangely fit for someone as old as she is, and that’s because she is secretly a skilled assassin. She pretends to be a frail old woman to avoid suspicion, but she is actually a very capable killer. Her hand-to-hand combat skills are astoundingly swift and precise. If watched closely, she can occasionally be seen using thieves’ cant during her conversations.

Giant Trouble — February 25, 2019

Drunken Warning — February 20, 2019

Drunken Warning

An unconscious drunkard who is passed out in a bush begins whispering strange omens to the party as they walk past. Upon further inspection it appears that he is simply talking in his sleep, but the next day his omens begin to come true.

Beast Clay — February 15, 2019

Beast Clay

A smooth lump of clay that radiates a gentle heat when held.


Wondrous Item, Uncommon

After being sculpted into a beast of Challenge Rating 1 or lower, the clay will transform into the beast. The clay will grow or shrink to the size of the beast that has been sculpted. The sculptor shares consciousness with the beast and can control the beast’s actions, but the beast is unable make any attacks. After 5 minutes the beast will return to its clay form.

The Corrupted Tree — February 11, 2019

The Corrupted Tree

A massive ancient tree that houses thousands of elves is beginning to slowly decay after a hooded figure was spotted pouring a magical substance on the roots a few nights ago. The elves have been unable to figure out how to save the tree and are calling on the help of anyone who can help.

Atugak — February 10, 2019

Atugak

“The sword I bought from him is the finest blade I’ve ever laid my hands on. It’s light, perfectly balanced, and there’s not a single imperfection to be found.”

One of Atugak’s many satisfied customers

Atugak is a middle-aged male half-orc blacksmith who has a rough, bald head. He is missing his left eye and has a large scar covering the spot where his eye used to be. He speaks loudly in a deep, scratchy voice. He is kind to anyone who respects his craft and shows appreciation for his creations, but he quickly becomes resentful towards anyone who talks down on his craft. His creations are all high quality and beautifully crafted down to the smallest details. He enjoys telling others about his clan and about his now deceased father who taught him everything he knows about smithing.
