Ulkadia Equipment Expanded
Expanding Mundane Equipment
As we further explore the many unique Erenel Kingdoms, equipment options, armor, and weapon offerings will grow! The intention is to provide a variety of new and exciting items, not overshadow equipment already in-game. New weapon and armor properties are available with the ultimate goal of adding diversity to your table. As a Dungeon Master, feel free to allow the provided options without unique properties if you wish. However, all item properties are designed to adhere to the design philosophy of 5E and have been playtested.
The blacksmiths, woodcarvers, and traders found in the five great cities of Ulkadia reflect the nation's culture. A technique first taught by the Ashard Dragon Flight and perfected by the Forge Dwarfs; the Ulkadians craft their native weapons primarily from an enhanced Bronze alloy. But make no mistake, Ulkadian Bronze is as strong as it is alluring on a shield or sword. To be an Ulkadian warrior is to master the art of the shield. Thousands of soldiers have trained in the Phalanx battle formation, a highly disciplined and effective tool of war. Equipped with a shield and unencumbered armor, Ulkadians fight as a unit, locking shields together in this defensive formation. Ulkadians also wield a handful of unique weapons, which can typically be purchased at any blacksmith shop in the five great cities. Spears and tridents are common amongst the militia, but the Kopis and Chakram have gained ground after being popularized by arena fighters in the Great Games.
Rules to RememberWith the introduction of new weapon and armor properties, a friendly clarification and reminder on specific rules.
- You can benefit from only one shield a time.
- Bleed does not take effect if you only damage temporary hit points.
- Reinforced does not stack.
- Parry provides AC on one attack, not all attacks, at the cost of a Reaction.
