Two Tome of Tomes

Two more Tome of Tomes below. I'm nearing on the 500th tome in the series and am expecting Tome of Tomes vol. V to be out probably in late April, 2017. Thanks to all my Patreons! If you want to join in, it's only 2 bucks a month.

Flies of the Sligo Swamp
Author: Spree Waghorn
Race: Halfling
Dimensions: 8x8x1
Weight: 4lbs.
Materials: Leather-bound, stoneboard, parchment
Rarity: Rare
Fields of Study: Fauna
Special Knowledge Categories: Insects
Value: 200 gp

Another smartly illuminated manuscript by Spree Waghorn, Flies of the Silgo Swamp is also found throughout libraries of the west as the only study of said insects of that eastern swamp.  Like his other work, Insects of the Eastern Jungles, this one is also entirely a work of fiction. Yet again, Waghorn lives up to his name, reaping a significant retirement by organizing reproductions and sales of his work.


Symbolic Language, Vol 1-6
Author: Dorial Lightwalker
Race: Dwarf
Dimensions: 8x10x1
Weight: 2 lbs.
Materials: Leather-bound, woodboard, vellum
Rarity: Rare
Fields of Study: Humankind, demi-humankind, humanoids & giantkind
Special Knowledge Categories: Languages
Value: 100 gp (per volume)

This extensively illustrated work dives into unknown scripts and languages. Compiled from hundreds of adventurers’ notebooks, and coupled with 200+ years of personal experience, Lightwalker provides an excellent framework for those seeking to know something, anything, about an unknown script. Unfortunately, the volumes are not indexed in any way and finding precise information is a long and tedious task.

This magic item as always cracked me up ever since I made it up several years ago... :-)

Pump-Action Broadsword

Description: Appearing as a normal well-crafted broadsword, a pump-action broadsword shoots a magical broadsword from the blade when the wielder moves their hand along the hilt in a pump-action motion. The sword is treated as a normal sword for hand-to-hand purposes, albeit with an Incredible (8) Material Strength and a Break of 10. Its missiles deal 4 points of Slashing Damage with Medium Range. The missiles dematerialize after 20 seconds.

Two Tome of Tomes about Giants

Thanks to everyone who supported the Advanced Adventures Bundle of Holding! We raised a few dollars shy of $1,000 for Reading is Fundamental, so much good was done. Below are two tomes for your fantasy libraries...

The Frost Giants of Flarjarik
Author: Logner Snuppe
Race: Fire Giant
Dimensions: 16x20x3
Weight: 36 lbs.
Materials: Cave bear leather-bound, stoneboard, vellum, iron clasps
Rarity: Rare
Fields of Study: Humanoids & giantkind
Special Knowledge Categories: History, languages, law & customs, legends & folklore
Value: 175 gp

The second of a series of three by the fire giant ambassador Logner Snuppe, The Frost Giants of Flarjarik is a denser, more-scholarly work reflecting an improvement in abilities of the author. Like the former book, this one details a basic history along with language, customs, laws, and legends of the Flarjarik frost giants. Snuppe’s authorial voice is stronger in this work, the details finer, and there is less rambling concerning day-to-day affairs.


The Fire Giants of Rajayarikavaola
Author: Logner Snuppe
Race: Fire Giant
Dimensions: 16x20x3
Weight: 36 lbs.
Materials: Cave bear leather-bound, stoneboard, vellum, iron clasps
Rarity: Rare
Fields of Study: Humanoids & giantkind
Special Knowledge Categories: History, languages, law & customs, legends & folklore
Value: 200 gp

The final in a series of three, The Fire Giants of Rajayarikavaola details Snuppe’s home clan. After more than 15 years as a travelling ambassador, Snuppe returns to his home and turns his eye towards his own people. Of most interest, the final few chapters were written after Snuppe’s encounter with divine Tulatiathior, who unhardened his heart. The Fire Giants of Rajayarikavaola are treated most-harshly in these final chapters, written while Snuppe was in exile, a retainer for Baron Lorformere, the human marcher lord.
