Northland 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 Northlands craft their native weapons and armor primarily from the natural resource Black Ice. Ice in name only, Black Ice is a hardened stone that appears fragile and easily manipulated until forged. Thanks to the ease of sculpting the stone, crafters can conveniently shape the stone in exciting and deadly ways. Northlanders also wield a handful of unique weapons, which can typically be purchased at any blacksmith shop. Caelian Waraxes are common amongst elite Caelian warriors, although the Claymore has seen a rise in popularity as of late. Most Northlanders, carry a seax with them at all times and hunt with finely crafted Yew Longbows, decorated to fit the hunter's personality.
Rules to RememberWith the introduction of new weapon and armor properties, a friendly clarification and reminder on specific rules.
