    Oops missed one somehow...

    Sorry all, but I forgot to post the other magic item! Oops. Ah well, here it is:

    Seeker
    One of the light crossbows is in fact an ancient dwarven weapon called Seeker (or Kîranka, in the dwarven language). There were actually once three of these weapons, all identical in appearance and function. They were made by a master forge-priest of the powerful Rockhammer clan of Baruk-Azhik but over the centuries since their forging, they have become lost and eventually passed into legend. Despite their legendary status, the Seeker crossbows simply look like extremely well-crafted crossbows. There are no identifying marks or symbols of any kind on any of the Seekers.
    Seeker functions as a light crossbow +1 and can fire any light quarrel (even silver or enchanted ones) although it has two extra powers. The first, and most important for it gives the weapon its name, is Seeker's ability to deliver mortal wounds. If Seeker is used to fire a light quarrel at an orog whose current hit points are less than the maximum damage that could be caused by the quarrel, Seeker guides the quarrel to its target's heart, killing it instantly. This ability only works on orogs - no other creature can be killed in this fashion, not even half-orogs (although Seeker can be used normally against any creature). In most cases, the maximum damage caused by a light quarrel fired from Seeker is seven (1d6+1) so any orog with six or less points can be killed outright. However, magical quarrels or unusual situations may change this number. Seeker's other extra enchantment simply allows the weapon's owner to understand the orog tongue whenever the weapon is held. Note this power only grants understanding of spoken orog - the ability to speak or write orog is not gained.
    The Rockhammer clan in Baruk-Azhik would be forever indebted to anyone who returned this weapon to them. At the very least, the Rockhammers would throw a lavish celebration and feast in honour of the person who brought Kîranka home. They would also name that person Moradin's Servant (an ancient title that binds all dwarves to offer reasonable aid if it is asked of them).

    For those priests (and wizards) out there, Volo's guide to " All Things
    Magical " has some excellent information for priests (and wizards) on the
    creation of magical items. It includes and A - Z on the creation process,
    and includes specific spells that priests employ in such a process (and for
    wizards too !).

    This tome is a really good buy for any spellusers out they (even if it was
    originally published for the Realms campaign world.

    Warlock :) ....

    I'm a big fan of dwarven made magic items (weapons in particular,
    obviously). There is something appropriately mystical about dwarves. There
    was an article in a recent Dragon magazine (#246 I think) that describes,
    among other things, dwarven forge priests and hammer chants which fit my
    idea of how dwarves create magic items to perfection (after all there are
    not too many dwarven wizards handy who can cast enchant an item, permancy,
    etc :)). I for one have pretty much imported this article whole into my
    Birthright campaign.
