Raven Crowking Presents Gary Con 2017 Special: Items of Magic

Raven Crowking Presents Gary Con 2017 Special: Items of Magic was written and illustrated by Daniel J. Bishop based in part off material from the Goodman Games Forums and suggestions from Heather Bishop and Jace Schulz. Additional patron material from Angels, Daemons, and Beings Between, published by Dragon's Hoard Publishing, Daniel J. Bishop and Paul Wolfe authors, copyright 2012. The publisher is Raven Crowking.

Disclosure: I am the author, illustrator, and publisher.

Gary Con IX in 2017 was my first Gary Con. Wanting to do something special to commemorate the occasion, I created a small print "Special" that I could hand out at the Con. Within were 18 magic items and the patron information for Radu, King of Rabbits, which related to the Iron Carrot of the King (one of the magic items therein). I also printed out the magic items to pass out to players at games I was running.

A number of these items were based on player requests for a game I ran on the Goodman Games Forums. Several magic items from this product were printed onto cardstock and distributed to players at Gary Con X as well.

Example items:

  • Rah‐Neld's Ray Gun: Can fire a blue‐white radiance at targets within 120', causing 1d10 damage on a successful strike and doing critical hits as a warrior of equal level. In the event of a natural "1", instead of a fumble it must recharge, and cannot be used again for 24 hours.
  • The Servant of Madam Daemona: This ivory doll is a foot high. It comes to life at night, and can perform one simple task each night, such as polishing armor, sharpening weapons, etc. Whatever it performs this task on gains a bonus of the judge's choice (usually +1) on the following day.
  • Headstone of the Zoogs: This ancient tombstone is heavy, requiring two hands and a Strength of 14+ to carry. It comes from the Enchanted Wood in the Dreamlands. When its owner feeds it with his own blood (equal to Spellburn usable by any class) the tombstone's heading changes to answer any question. The answer can only use 1 word per point of Spellburn, and is correct 75% of the time. When not in use, it reads "Richard Upton Pickman, 1768‐1927".


This item is no longer available, although some of the content can be found in Angels, Daemons, and Beings Between or on the aforementioned Goodman Games Forums thread.
