Blood Star Cloak Clasp (Eye of the Rose)

Fri 15 Mar 2019, 20:36

Are players supposed to swap only the ruby as opposed to the entire clasp? If it's just the ruby, doesn't this mean that Iridne has to find a new form to be in? And didn't this also mean that the players won't get to use the blood star cloak clasp artifact?

They are not “supposed” to do anything! The situation is there for them to make of what they will. Could they swap the rubies over and “rescue” Iridne back to the elves (probably incurring her wrath)? Yes. Could they just steal the clasp as use it as a magic item? Yes! Could they do a deal with Iridne and lead the Orcs into climatic battle at the end of your campaign, changing the Forbidden Lands for ever? YES!

Of course anything's possible. The Iridne in my campaign is now a friendly ent NPC.

Just a shame that the the cloak clasp is statted and printed as a card but not going to be used. I wished I had had the foresight to let Mergolene's give them a fake cloak clasp instead. That way, all the possibilities you mentioned would still be possible and more!

Think I figured it out. The PCs can make a new cloak clasp. After all, it's the ruby that gives one it's power.
