Over on the Mantic forum, Allessio has asked members to post new ideas for magic items.

Here is mine;

Crystal Ball, 20 points, Hero only

The Hero uses his scrying powers to discover enemy deployment.

When the Hero deploys on the field, roll 1d6, the enemy must deploy that number of units instead of only one.

Wand of Summoning, varies, Hero only.

The Hero uses this mystical artifact to summon a monster.

The cost is equal to the Monster.
The Monster is kept off table until summoned.
The Monster is summoned onto the table within 12" of the caster.
The caster may not move when summoning.
The Monster does not take an action on the turn it is summoned.
(this should be fun in a game where magic items are not disclosed !  )

Night Fevers, 50 points, Twilight Kin Heroes only.

The night before the battle, the caster sends terrible nightmares to stalk an enemy force.

This is cast when the Hero deploys on the field.
Choose an enemy unit of up to 100 points value which is still to be deployed, on a 4+ it will not take part in the battle.

(Go Drow.  cool  )

Hi Shug,

How about

Caltrops --- Infantry units only --- 20 points -- can be bought by more than ONE unit.

This is a ONE SHOT item --- use a token to indicate caltrops have been placed

the unit scatters loads of pointy things around them -- any cavalry attacking this unit must take a 3d6 damage test and any charging infantry unit takes a 2d6 damage test  --- if any damage is taken they must take a morale check immediately -- if the cavalry unit fails this morale check ,the charge fails and the unit is butchered by the intended target unit -- remove from field immediately. If they pass they can continue the charge.

What think??

maybe too much for a one shot -- try 15 pts or even 10

Mark

Its not really a magic item , is it ?

And it breaks one of the core KOW rules, in that it works during your opponents turn. no

Back to the drawing board Nemesis old chum.  tongue

Instead of this you could have it as a one shot weapon that increases the defence of the unit scattering the caltrops by one if they are charged by infantry and increase it by two if charged by cavalry because then it wouldn't be braking the fundamental rule that Zellak mentioned above

"In brightest day,
in blackest night,
no evil shall escape my sight,
let those who worship evil's might,
beware my power,
Green Lantern's light!"

DarkLord has done a battle report. And used the new magic item.

“Crepognon’s Scrying Gem of Zellak”

Which forces the opponent deploy 1d3+1 units on the table at the start of the game.

Fame at last !!!
biggrin
