Back in October 2011, Courtney at Hack & Slash wrote a short set of posts on magic weapons and armor
I’m pretty sure I included links to these pages in Links to the Week months ago, but I figured I’d hoist them to the Hall of Fame. I suspect I’ll find them useful sometime soon.
On the Magic Armor
- On The Magic Armor: A Table Part I has tables to select the type of armor (suit or pieces) and primary materials. He doesn’t provide information about the effects of the different materials, but I suspect assuming that ‘gold armor’ is steel decorated with gold would be appropriate.
- On The Magic Armor: A Table Part II gets into the magical and sensory elements of the armor.
On the Magic Weapon
- On The Magic Weapon: A Table part I has tables describing the physical form of the weapon found, though it only covers swords.
- On The Magic Weapon: A Table part II describes the magical and sensory elements of he sword.
- On Magic Weapon: A Table part III provides a d100 table of special purposes magic swords might have.
