Dragon Horde


  • PC

    During last gaming session, there was discussion around the declining value behind d20/3.5 treasure generators. And what magic items the party might find useful. The Portable Mansion was mentioned so everyone else won’t have to ride in Dregnoth’s little shop of horrors (very good idea), others may include-

    1. Laputan’s Recipes for Manacite based magic items; anything specific to their culture
    2. Magical Receipe for Manacite-Self Recharging Cubes
    3. Magical Formula/Craft Design for Manacite-Based Mythallar (Lesser, Medium, or Greater)
    4. Map to the location of a Laputan Magical Research Facility
    5. Dragon Notes/Journal that describes the locations the Dragon has searched, and theories as to its location, seeking treasure that was buried and never recovered during the great battle between Dwarven Kingdom, and the Laputans. Which gives a reason as to why the Dragon choose this area in the first place.
    6. Introduction of the Spellbreakers
    7. Introduction of the Socket magics
    • I would suggest some of the more lessor or minor Ancient magic item recipes, being found in the the horde however since there hasn’t been an Ancient in this multi-verse that may be a tad difficult to explain.
    1. Truesight Goggles

    2. Spell Point Battery

    3. Star Sapphire Crystal Ball ( or other variations of scrying)

    4. Manual of Golems (Admantine)

    5. Ring of Three Wishes

    6. Staff of Magi

    7. Hammer of Thunderbolts

    8. Rod of Dwarven Might, Lordly Might, or Immovable Rod

    9. Staff of the Planes, or Evocation, or Power, or Many Rays, or One Hundred Hands

    10. Book, Manual of Gainful Exercise or Clear Thought, etc… +5 and all the various variations

    11. Mirror of Mental Prowess

    12. Various Ioun Stones (Check with Dwarf, for some reason i though he had a expanded list)

    13. Ring of ArchWizardry, Ring of High Priestliness, and/or Ring of the Mind (not entirely sure how these work with 10e magic)

    14. Alchemist Repellant ( just wishful thinking )

    there hasn’t been any DOCUMENTED Ancient in the manaverse… doesn’t mean one or more didn’t wind up here over the past few millenia 😉 could be a whole conclave of 'em by now, hiding on a moon somewhere !

    ** Dregnoth starts moving into the Portable Mansion, so y’all don’t miss him too much **

    Refering to this snippet -

    Refined - High quality - 50 pounds
    Refined - Average quality 250 pounds
    Raw - 4000 year old vein (dragon’s couch)

    What exactly is the difference between High Quality and Average Quality? The level of magic items you can turn the material into? Not sure what the difference in quality means to us. Is the refinement process what makes it high, or is the manacite itself considered of high quality before entering refinement or both?

    And Raw, meaning unrefined, presumably with it still in the vein we have to harvest it or mine the Dragon’s couch?

    The quality of the ore is more varied than that. But I could not find my notes and I never did actually work those all the way out. So that’s basically a big placeholder for now. And yes the raw ore still has to be mined.

    So if the Slaad takes the Manual of Gainful Exercise (+1) can some one read it to him … cause yeah Im not so sure he can read lol


  • PC

    I would be all over a Staff of Magi or spell point battery.

    and Alchemist Repelent… LMFAO


  • PC

    I don’t think this list has been integrated into the Party Treasure List (on Roll20).

    Refined - High quality - 50 pounds

    Raw - 4000 year old vein (dragon’s couch)

    Is it age that defines quality of manacite?

    Did you ever find your notes on the ore breakout?

    No, forgot about it

    So a few times now in game the DaermaDM has referenced the Laputan’s lack of expansion over many many years to the island nations, and other continents because they have hit a resource constraint on manacite. (Correct me if this is wrong, or i misunderstood)

    I can only assume they have the ability to scan for manacite some how, or do they still actively look for deposits on their continent? The reason i bring this up is they complete overlooked or didn’t see the 4000 year old vein (dragon’s couch). I’m curious if this is because thier ability to detect manacite is limited to refined manacite and they couldn’t see the raw stuff - or the dragon’s abode masked it from their scans?

    Or something else?

    The presence was masked.
