New/Unique Magical Items in Thunder Rift

Post by Gravesguardian »

Yep, just like the title says I'ld like to start a list of Magical Items that were introduced in Thunder Rift products only. (Both Canon and Accepted: ie. The Dragon's Den boxset is accepted as being in Thunder Rift, regardless of that silly map.)

Quest for the Silver Sword
#1. Room 5: Dining Room - a small silver bell, untarnished & magnificently crafted. When rang it causes a fine meal to spring into being. The food will be exactly as desired by the character who rang the bell, reflecting his or her own personal tastes. Thereafter in order to use the bell a character must state the food desired and then ring the instrument vigorously. Usable 3 times per day.
Assault on Raven's Ruin
#1. Room 12: Treasure Room - Scepter of Truth: causes all who are touched to speak the truth.
#2. Room 15: Raven's Room - Carving of Restful Sleep: When hung on a wall, this cursed item causes anyone in the room to fall asleep, no Save. The item may be broken or burned easily.
The Knight of Newts
#14: Dressing Room - Orb & Chest caused Castle Kraal to fall into the Black Swamp. Once at a depth of 12 feet below the water table, the Orb expended all of its magic.
In the Phantom's Wake
#1. Location 8: Officer's Quarters - Torture Bracelet: If worn: "You scream in agony and buckle at the waist, falling to the floor. The delicate gold chain flies up and connects the bracelets together, wrapping itself around your ankles as well - effectively hog-tying you. You can feel your heartbeat pulse in your fingers and toes as the chain strangles your circulation. If you are alone, then the adventure ends." (Kills w/in 10 minutes. Can be affected by magical weapons or Dispel Magic.)
#2. Location 13: Storage/Hold - Astrolabe of Henrik: see pg. 13 of said adventure.

Thanks, I typed it up as I picked thru each of the adventures. I never realized just how many new magical items were introduced via Thunder Rift 'til I finished it.
