I just realized that the LABORATORY thread wasn't supposed to contain discussions on items .. So.. here I go again
This is my first take on designing an enchanted item. This is supposed to be my characters "out-of-gauntlet-Masterpiece". I would appreciate input on any flaws in its design
My journeyman verditius has a focus on suppressing magic effects (MF) and his Craft is metalworking - specializing in lab equipment/tools. By using these tongs the wielder can grab an object, creature, person (etc.) and suppress any magical effects used by /or affecting the creature - as long as the wielder or the tongs maintain concentration. The effect is based on the ReViGen Guidelines where a spell can "sustain or suppress a spell cast by another with level less than half (level + 5 magnitudes)". The trigger is straightforward - by grabbing something with the tongs they snap shut, and maintains the lock for as long as the person that used them decides (fades at sun)..
Tongs of Suppression (lesser item)
ReVi 28 Levels
Level 7 (gen effect) +7
- 1 magnitude Concentration +5
- 1 magnitude Touch +5
- 10 pts penetration +5
Item maintains concentration +5
x2 uses pr. day +1
This should make the tongs able to penetrate creature might 10 or less, and suppress spells /effects of 15(third magnitude). It will be quite handy in the lab, when handling dangerous magical stuff, and for dealing with pesky supernatural pests like minor faeries etc. What do you think about the idea / stats. Please note that the lab total required will be manageable in my masters lab, with craft and MF.
I'm looking forward to hearing your opinions folks!
