New Magic Item - Vilstrum's Clay Legion

Here's a handy magic item to give you that extra helping hand - but without having to share XP and GP with those damn henchmen!


Yes, I know I look too Greek...

Vilstrum’s Clay Legion: This item appears to be a porcelain box containing a number of crude clay figures of soldiers – about 2” tall.  A typical box has 3-18 such figurines.  Any time one of the figures is taken out of the box and doused with water (a full round action), it magically transforms into an animated clay warrior holding a sword and shield.  The warrior lasts for 24 hours or until destroyed.  Additionally, the creator of the warrior can permanently banish it at any time.  Once used (or banished) the warrior is permanently gone.  The warriors can’t speak but they understand simple oral commands given by their creator and will instinctively fight to protect him.  They will do any simple action as commanded by their owner.  They listen to nobody else.  Their stats: HP 10; AC 5; HD 2+1; DMG 1-8; Move 9”.  They are immune to any mind altering spells.  XP: 150 per warrior.

  1. Very nice! That's not too overpowered at all. It's similar to the figurines of wondrous power; I can see using this in a 1st-3rd level dungeon. Thanks!

  3. Thanks. I'm a big fan of temporary magic items. That way, if it's too powerful at least it goes away eventually. And also, it makes the PC's use judgement about when to use the limited reasource.

  7. Then simply apply the Leather Aroma Cream to the surface of the leather with a lint free cloth. Allow it to dry then simply wipe off any excess.
